Our purpose is to promote the welfare and humane treatment of all animals: mammals, fowl, reptiles, and fish; to prevent cruelty and promote kindness, respect, and reverence for all forms of life; and to this end, provide for the rescue and temporary maintenance of lost, strayed, abandoned animals; and disseminate the principles of humaneness through educational programs and through these efforts contribute to the creation of a truly humane society.
Potential adopters visit the animals and choose one they would like to adopt. They then complete a questionnaire, answering questions about how they will take care of this pet and how other pets have been taken care of. They leave the shelter with a packet of information to read during the twenty-four waiting period. Upon approval of the questionnaire, an adoption contract is signed and the adoption fee is paid. If the dog or cat is old enough to be spayed or neutered (we require it to be done at 4 months of age), we require the surgery to be completed before the animal is taken home.
