  • Provide low cost vaccinations to over 1200 animals each year at our pet care clinics
  • Educate the public concerning animal welfare and pet owner responsibility through school visits and social outreach

Most importantly, realize that our efforts on behalf of the animals would not be possible without you. Your donations allow us to continue to run our programs and services. Your generosity has enabled us to expand our coverage and develop new ideas to help our animal friends. Your gift of volunteer hours makes the labor light and the work go farther. On behalf of our Board of Directors and staff, we would like to thank you, the members of our wonderful community, for your support and concern for the animals we all love.
