Our cats reside in what is called a community cat room. This means they are able to freely move about and interact with one another just like being in a private home. this allows the transition from our shelter to your home be less stressful.
our dogs reside currently in foster homes. our foster homes provide what we call basic home skills to each dog they foster. we have found that 90% of the dogs we help do not have home skill manners.
Every animal is spayed/neutered. Age appropriate vaccinations (We use Zoetis Professional Vaccinations/Fellocell for Felines and Vanguard for Canines) including rabies are administered BY OUR VET(s), FECAL EXAM & full SPECTRUM deworming (Gets typical Roundworms, Hookworks, Tape (both) and Whipworms as well as other parasites), flea preventative treatment (MONTHLY) and canines are heartworm checked and on heartworm prevention medication. FELINES ARE FELV/FIV Tested. ALL ANIMALS ARE MICROCHIPPED (We use found animals microchips so it is an all inclusive package where there is never a registeration fee to our adopters!) DOGS ARE GROOMED & CATS AS NEEDED. Additional medical care may be provided to an animal, as needed and recommended by our Veterinarian(s). medical records of all care will be provided to adopters.

we opened our own shelter in 2009. the economy fell hard in our area and our adoptions dropped significantly. it has taken us years to regain ground and with surrounding changes throughout kC it has been another battle. when something isn't working - it's time to change and do something different!
