Through adoption of homeless pets, humane education, abuse investigation, and community outreach and leadership, we match pets and people. There are many places to acquire a dog or a cat, but our shelter is special. Before you adopt your companion animal from us, the Animal Protection Society will:
- Treat the pet for internal and external parasites
- Give them all initial vaccinations
- Spay or neuter the pet
- Test all cats for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) and Leukemia Virus (FeLV)
Beyond all that, animals at the shelter are lovingly played with, socialized, and observed for all possible behavior problems. We care about our friends, and it shows! Learn more.
How You Can Help
Outright donations help us feed and take care of the shelter pets. Make a one-time donation, a monthly donation, or become a Shelter P.A.L. by making a yearly donation of any amount.
Volunteer opportunities are many, just to name a few: walking dogs, trapping feral cats, pet training, medical support, fostering pets, and volunteering time at Treasure Hounds store.
