|Sometimes you and your pet need help. Life has a funny way of throwing us the occasional curveball and we don't want your pet to suffer the consequences. Tragically, pets are often the first to go when times get rough. If they get to stay at home, they are often neglected. We can help.|
If you need help, ASK!
Whatever the circumstances, be it death of a spouse or partner, divorce, loss of job, veterinary emergency, sudden illness, or natural disaster and you need pet food, cat litter, hay or veggies for your bun, please call us or any of the shelters or rescues listed below. Assistance is often a phone call away.
Have you finally realized you can't handle one more litter from Fluffy this coming spring? You know it's time to get her spayed but need help paying the bill or even that small co-pay? Ask for help.
There are many generous, caring people out there to help you.
Are you elderly and that 10lb bag of cat litter or cat food too heavy for you carry up the stairs? Ask for help. We know people who will deliver supplies to you free of charge.
Did Fluffy sneak out the door and get hit by a car? You are probably devastated. Maybe Fluffy simply has a broken leg that needs set but you can't afford the bill and are contemplating relinquishing your pet to the shelter or euthanasia. Now is a good time. Ask for help!
Don't let your pet suffer. Make the call.

If you absolutely must relinquish your pet, please keep in mind that shelters are always
filled to capacity and there is a strong possibility your pet will be euthanized.
Most shelters charge a relinquishment fee.
When dealing with a rescue, ALWAYS make sure they are licensed by the state!
Not all are licensed & not all are IRS 501c3 non-profit, tax exempt organizations!
