Be a Best Friend

Every year over 1,200 animals walk through our doors in desperate need of food, shelter, medical care and a loving home.

Be a best friend to an animal in need. Here’s how:

  1. Select an animal from a display at one of the locations listed below.
  2. Use the provided envelope to easily mail a donation to the shelter.

Your gift will provide food, medical care and a second chance to a homeless dog or cat.
