Employee and Volunteer Picks
Of the many wonderful animals available for adoption, these pets are extra special, because one of our staff or volunteers has chosen them.
Wonderful companion animals that are not “on display” in our public adoption gallery because they do best in a calm and quiet environment.
Print and share your favorite animals with our Furry Flyers posters.
Special Needs Pets
When an animal in our care is suffering (from a chronic illness, challenging behavior or a terminal disease) and are deemed unhealthy or untreatable, we do everything we can to find a rescue group, family or person willing to take on their special needs.
There currently are no featured animals to display. Please check back again later.
