Sammie's Lonely Hearts Club

No animal should ever have to live in a shelter for more than 60 days.

Sammie's Lonely Hearts Club was formed to help draw attention to all of our very special furry friends.  Every homeless animal deserves a home and we want their time here at the shelter to be short and sweet and full of love. The "short" part doesn't always happen and sometimes they stay longer than two months!  This is an ongoing challenge of being a no-kill shelter.  

Please adopt one of our Lonely Hearts.
