Fosters for shelter animals are desperately needed.  If you would like to have a pet, but really don’t want to make a lifetime commitment, try fostering.  It’s a win, win for you and the animal.

Volunteers are needed to help with cleaning and caring for the animals.  Stop in on Saturday morning and get signed up to help the animals.

Donations for dog, puppy, cat and kitten food are always appreciated for the shelter animals.
