There are over 26,000 animals put to death in our local and extended community each year. Most shelters are full beyond capacity due to the vast amount of stray, abandoned, unwanted and abused animals. A stray animal is held for 5 working days... if that animal is not adopted or claimed, the animal will be disposed of, based on each organizations individual procedure. An owner turn-in (relinquish) can be disposed of at any time. The shelters are full of young and older animals, purebred and mixed, sweet and shy... please don't assume yours will be easily placed just because he's cute or has a great personality. Please remember that an animal is an actual life - They are such wonderful, compassionate, giving souls... we hope you find it in your heart to keep your pet.
