Animal Shelter News/Tips:

*Hours for receiving animals: WEEKDAYS ONLY between 1pm-4pm. Please be sure to give the shelter a call before coming to the shelter, to ensure we have space. 

*NEVER touch a wild animal! If any type of wildlife that you would normally not see comes up in your yard and gets close to you, DO NOT TOUCH IT! Wildlife is not something you need to try and make friends with.

*If you need a stray picked up you must call animal control for your county. If you have been feeding a stray for 3 days or longer it is legally considered your animal and animal control will not pick it up.

*If you find a litter of kittens with no momma cat, leave them! The momma is most of the time either out finding food or in the process of moving them to a better location. Kittens do not have a strong survival rate without their mother.

*AWARE offers discount vouchers for spay/neuter and more information can be found at

*We are always in need of donations such as laundry detergent, bleach, Dawn dish soap, Purina dry dog & puppy food, Purina dry cat & kitten food, any types of wet dog & cat food, dog treats, and pine pellets. We also have an amazon wishlist were donations can be purchased and sent straight to the shelter (

*We will take any donations you have for us! Please feel free to come by our shelter at anytime to drop off donations. If you happen to come and we are not here, there is a donation bin outside our front door. We are always in need of linens! (sheets, towels, wash cloths, blankets)





We are always welcome to volunteers to help walk dogs to increase our canine enrichment. If you are interested in joining our team of volunteers or transport list please email
