Announcement-July 27, 2017

The Animal Shelter is currently at 100% capacity for cats & kittens at this time. 

Due to the high population we are not in a position to except any additional cats or kittens. 

The shelter will need a couple of days to get the population down to a manageable level. 

We ask that anyone wishing to surrender a cat or bring in a trapped feral cat please contact the shelter at 463-4427 prior to bringing in any cat or kitten to the facility. 

We will attempt to schedule a date/time with the caller in the near future to accept the animal(s). 

We appreciate the public's assistance. 

Thank you.
