Mission: Pets in need's mission is to rescue dogs and cats who are in danger of being killed in public humane societies and spca's.
Programs: Animal care: the organization provides excellent care, quality medical services, and good training for pets within the shelter. This is achieved through the in house veterinary clinic and other services.
adoption and development: the operation of an on-site animal shelter for the purpose of finding homes for homeless dogs and cats. The program promotes adoption and counsels the public about the responsibilities of pet ownership.
community services: the organization offers speakers for events, works with school children interested in animals and sends volunteers with companion animals to visit shut-ins or people who would benefit from the healing presence of animals. Pets in need also offers grants to senior citizens and low income individuals to pay for veterinary care for their dogs and cats.
We have been so blessed to have found our beloved four-legged member of our family at Pets In Need. We all (the 3 of us) had to go there to meet with the dog of our choice so we would be certain he would be the right one for us. Not only did we love him at first sight, it seemed as if he loved each of us in the same way. He was as excited as we were! There is a low cost of $90. (or at least that is what the cost was way back in 2004 when we adopted him) which included all of his necessary shots, one visit to the vet, and the charge to neuter him. (Poor little puppy!) We brought him home within a few days and he has brought us such unimaginable joy every day, Thanks to Pets In Need.
I have gone with a couple friends to help them look for a new pet here. This shelter is a no kill shelter and will adopt older, entirely lovable animals, from the public shelters when their days might be numbered there due to over-population. They are a very worthy charity and have very high standards of care in my experience. I strongly recommend them to anyone I know who is looking for a pet.
