Due to an overwhelming number of animals in need of sheltering services in our community, we are adjusting our intake policies frequently to best meet changing needs. Please check our Pet Surrender Process page before bringing any animal to any of our shelters for surrender. Read More

Euthanasia for those that are suffering

We understand the grief involved when the time comes to say goodbye to your pet and offer compassionate care to support you through this difficult time. We will take your pet to a warm, quiet room and perform humane euthanasia promptly. This procedure is carried out with kindness and respect. Although we are not set up for you to be present at the euthanasia, you may view your pet afterward if you wish.
