Pet Owner Support
As a shelter, we are here for the pet owners of our community in more ways than adoptions and reuniting lost pets. We are here to help families keep their pets home and healthy. Many animals are turned into area shelters or rehomed due to behavior problems that pets can develop. Remember that animals are not robots, and pet training is ongoing! If you need help with a training issue, please seek help BEFORE surrendering your pet becomes your only choice. Below are just a few things available to pet owners. Please contact us if you have any questions or can’t find the help you need.
Wellness Vouchers – Wellness vouchers may be utilized to get an animal a wellness appointment at 1 of 4 local veterinarians. The voucher will cover the exam, rabies vaccination, and infectious disease vaccine. Pet owners must meet certain requirements to receive this voucher.
