OUR NEW BUILDING IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION & WE NEED YOUR HELP!

How can you help?

Financial contributions & donation of your time and talent will help create a safe, fun and friendly environment for the people and pets of our greater community to enjoy.

Donate a Kuranda Shelter Bed

We are trying to provide our dogs with Kuranda ShelterBeds. A ShelterBed is a life-changing gift! Kuranda ShelterBeds are Made in the USA and are specifically designed to resist chewing and digging. These beds provide essential comfort to our pets — helping them sleep better, reducing stress behaviors and increasing their chance for adoption! Best of all, the beds are easy to clean. That means less time cleaning runs, less time in the laundry room and more time walking dogs and playing with cats. To donate a bed, visit
