By offering affordable pet healthcare services – including spaying and neutering – and educating the public on issues concerning responsible pet ownership, animal welfare legislation and eliminating animal cruelty, we seek to maintain a beneficial influence on our community while developing a positive awareness for a pet-caring society. We are dedicated to providing loving homes for all animals through our adoption facility and work to sustain an environment that upholds the humane treatment of all creatures.
