Everyone deserves a second chance!

posted 5 years ago

The building is beautiful, a large facility. I was happy to see they had even rescued a few horses about two months ago and had them in their care.

They give a temporary home to many, many animals. more cats than dogs, however. So if you are looking for a dog, the selection isn't too big. But if you are looking for a cat, the selection is unsurpassable!! My good friend and I frequently go to the shelter to visit the animals there and give them a bit of company.

I was impressed to see how many FIV+ cats they had, and it warms my heart that they are giving them a second chance at life, and not just putting them down. They take great care to keep FIV+ cats away from the general population.

However, although the general population of cats doesn't get FIV, they may pick up a virus while there. I think this is hard to avoid when having so many cats in such a small place, so do not let it reflect on the shelter. But I would suggest to quarintene any new cats before mixing them with your current cats to keep them from catching anything.


All in all, this is a great place and they are doing such good work to save unwanted pets and help them to have a happy new life. Everyone deserves a second chance!!

Pros: Lots of cats, large facility, offers on-site health care to animals

Cons: Small cages for cats, some of the cats may have viruses.

Good vet, office is a bit dull and dated but its a vet not a interior decorator. A bit costly but they take time and really love the pets you bring to them
