Donations

Thank you for helping the animals! It is only with the support of people like you that we are able to continue as a shelter for homeless and unwanted animals, a rescue operation, a placement agency, an educational and advocacy organization and a pet care resource center. Our furry friends and staff truly appreciate your kindness.

Sincerely,
Maria Benham
President & CEO
