    Nonprofit organization. Retains city animals for 7 days then turns over to Humane Society for adoption. The organization gives shots and worms all incoming animals. Upon adoption they spay/neuter if an adult. If a puppy they give a certificate for the spay/neuter. (No vets in the area do early spay/neuter). They do follow ups on all animals adpoted from the shelter to be sure they have been to the vet and had the rest of the shots and been spayed/neutered.

    Please e-mail me at The DogInfomat, if your ALL BREED shelter or humane society would like to be listed here (even if they do not have their own web site!).   For shelters and rescues without web sites, please include full name of shelter/rescue, hours of operation, a brief description of services provided, shelter contact full name and title, street address, city, state, zip, phone number and email address (if available). If you are not the contact person listed, you must include your full name and email address with your submission. PLEASE do not use this email link for any other purpose than submitting rescue, shelter, or welfare information.

    I do not add links to regional or state/city, breed-specific, rescue organizations. Links to these resources are available from the various breed specific sites available in the BREEDS section of this website, and, centralized rescue directories and indexes can be found HERE.

    Unfortunately, I am not able to identify all of the tireless volunteers that make these websites available. And, while I have no reason to believe that any of these organizations are not exactly what they present themselves to be, please remember that, as with any businesses or organizations you deal with, it is important that you research their financial status and practices, prior to making a donation or, otherwise, dealing with them.
