Animal House is a non-profit, 501(c)(3), No-Kill shelter for all breeds of dogs and cats.

We have been open since June 2002 and have rescued, rehabilitated and placed over 7,000 dogs and cats, to date, into their loving forever homes!

Animal House Shelter, Inc rescues abused and neglected dogs and cats and rehabilitates them mentally & physically in order to place them with the best new family. We rescue 98% of our dogs from high 'kill' shelters, pounds and various animal control facilities in which they are usually listed as strays, and almost always scheduled to be euthanized.

The best possible veterinary care is always given to those at Animal House Shelter. We never decline treatment, whatever it may entail, if it means that the animal has a chance at a new and healthy life.

We strive to go above and beyond when caring for and socializing our animals. We understand the importance of getting to know each and every animal available for adoption in an effort to place them in the most perfect home possible. All dogs are walked 4-5 times a day and socialized with each other and volunteers. The cats are housed in a large 'free roam' cat room so they can socialize all day with each other, staff, volunteers and potential adopters.

Like people, animals have distinct personalities that make them unique. At Animal House Shelter, we are proud to say that the dogs and cats are treated like our own. We care enough to be certain they are treated with the comfort and respect that they deserve and we make every effort to ensure that they go to the right, forever, permanent, loving home.

All dogs and cats are given all vaccinations- including their Rabies vaccine- They are neutered, microchipped, dewormed and heartworm tested (Dogs) or FeLV/FIV tested (Cats). Dogs are kept on heartworm preventative & all animals receive Frontline Plus monthly by Animal House. Included with the adoption of your new pet is 30 days of pet insurance for only $1 through and the first free vet exam (through AHS participating veterinarians).

History with Animal House

posted 6 years ago

This is a wonderful place, and you can tell by all the volunteers! Many complain about the "customer service" but you have to remember that 90% of the people you see there, are volunteers not paid staff!
Treat people (and animals) the way you want to be treated! We have adopted six pets from Animal House over the past several years. Our neighbors took our lead, and have adopted two dogs over the last two years. Animal House treats their adoptees with much love, and respect while they are there. The place is clean, the animals are clean, the grounds are clean, I have seen much much worse, and they operate purely on donations, they are a not for profit shelter.

Pros: They're a no-kill shelter, very clean well organized

Cons: They have more visitors than they have staff to handle sometimes
