Our vision is A Home for Every Pet. We hope to achieve this through innovative approaches to sheltering, adoption, spay and neuter, and public education about animal welfare. We are an open intake shelter and turn no animal away. We took in nearly 12,000 animals in 2015, but that number has declined every year since 2010 - a direct effect of our public spay/neuter program. This consistent decrease has enabled us to improve the quality of care for our shelter population through the years, namely the implementation of our Animal Compassion Fund to provide veterinary care to sick or injured animals.
