News ImageApril 25, 2016  Successful Fetch a New Friend Event Weekend!Thanks to our wonderful staff and volunteers we had a successful weekend for adoptions at our Fetch a New Friend event. We were happy to see 44 pets find their furever homes, including 15 cats, 1 rabbit, and 28 dogs that left with wagging tails. Along with the opportunity to spend some quality time with our pets, we also had a bake sale to raise money for the shelter. Thank you to everyone who donated, attended the event and chose to adopt!

Thank you also to those who took their time to stop by and spend some quality time with our volunteers at our booth at the America's Family Pet Expo!


News ImageApril 16, 2016  Thank You Ty for Your Generous Donation!Ty is a student at Linda Vista Elementary who has a big heart and a passion for helping animals. In an effort to help homeless pets in the community, Ty decided to collect much-needed donations for animals at our shelter.

A couple of weeks ago, Ty stopped by our shelter to deliver his donations and visit with our shelter animals. Ty ended up making over 100 blankets for our shelter dogs as well as delivering dozens of towels. He even brought cookies for our shelter staff! Ty personally delivered blankets to several shelter dogs and took some time to visit with them.

We are so appreciative for his efforts and thoughtfulness. He is a great example of our caring community. His generosity is greatly appreciated!
