"Adopted a 7 month old boy cat. He's calm and has a sweet temperament. Very clean facilities. Well done."


"A clean place. The folks who run it are good to visit with about the pet you are interested in. They have completed a lot of landscaping with trails and paved stone walkways for the animals to get out into the fresh air and get daily exercise. There's a room dedicated for the cats to play. They have put a whole lot of effort into making this shelter a place for lost and stray animals to be properly cared for while seeking their adopter."


"We couldn’t have asked for a better adoption experience. Bella has fit right in with us like she has been here all her life. We are truly grateful for such a wonderful experience with your shelter!  Thank you!!!"


"Found Max for my dad as his new best friend. Nice facility with a wonderful path for walking and quiet location. The people at the shelter were kind, helpful and patient as we walked Max around and got to know him. One employee even went above and beyond to help us select the right items to purchase on our way home. Max is a fun addition to our family."
