This is a great group of compassionate people who work hard to get the most for each animal that comes to the shelter. They do not have arbitrary timelines, or a maximum age for placing animals for adoption, etc. They get seniors into great homes while kittens and puppies benefit from loving foster homes. The leadership and board strive to bring more resources to the animals everyday...this means expanding transport to other places with more adoptions, breaking ground on a new building, better fund raising and sharing the things they learn with others by sponsoring educational opportunities. Just a really good group of people doing their best at a very difficult task!

I have volunteered for about three years now and the number of changes to policy, structure, employee accountability and technology which help the shelter service the community is such that the average person who has not come in to learn about the shelter really has no idea what all is now going on. Its really amazing. The number of out reach programs they are doing, reaching out to schools, to rescues, shelters and other citys to help build a network to reduce everyones overhead and ultimately place more animals in homes is just tremendous achievement. They have made incredible strides to better the shelter at all levels.
