Short times outside are fine but for long periods in severe cold animals are subject to frostbite just like you and I

Short periods outside are fine during this cold streak we have been having but remember animals are subject to frostbite just like you and I.

Tribute to Animal Shelter workers & volunteers & those that support these efforts

Sandi O'Brien made this video a few years ago for TLC, and this time of year seems so apropos to replay it, as it is as true today as it was then.  So many animals have been saved because you saw the need and you showed you cared!

When you watch this video remember YOU are a very important part of these efforts to save the lives of so many animals!  Beautiful companion animals that have no way out, there wouldn't be any future for them, if we didn't step in to help.  YOU are the backbone of these efforts!  Without your support we could not do what we are doing to save so many animals here and those coming from remote areas where adoptions are few and far between.  YOUR caring and generosity has enabled us to help abandoned, abused, and neglected cats and dogs, receiving the care that they need while awaiting their forever homes.  Thank you seems so little to say for all that YOU have done, but I am sure when you watch this video, you will realize how important you are to every animal that has been saved.......

Thank you to King Heating and Cooling

We want to thank King Heating and Cooling for their donation of a new furnace for the shelter.  Our 34 year old furnace was on it's last leg and was actually at a dangerous stage where carbon monoxide could be leaking into the buikding from the crack in the unit that we did not know about!  A big thank you goes out to King Heating and Cooling for their concern for the welfare of the animals at the shelter and their generosity.
