Our New Home
Simply, we’ve outgrown our old home. We have animals housed in 3 different locations, and our volunteers are stretched beyond thin to meet the basic needs of Food, Water, and Kennel Cleaning.
95% of our efforts and budget are spent meeting basic needs across these 3 remote facilities. The Critical Goals of Rehabilitation and Adoption efforts don’t get their fair share of our time and attention. We want that to change – You Can Help Us.
Our old home is outside of the city limits and too remote to recruit school and church youth volunteers.
Building a new, large facility close to the city center and within the city limits just makes sense and will make getting School and Church Youth participation much more practical for Parents.
Having the new, combined facility will allow our volunteers to focus on all of the care needs at one location. Our Goal of 30% Care and 70% Rehabilitation and Adoption Efforts will finally be realized.

Yes! Yes! We’re all excited…. As of July 1st, all of our 48 kennels were able to start housing our residents. We still have work to complete and are waiting on certain components and materials, but our teams decided we should start making the moves.
