Because of our adopters, rescue partners, sponsors and volunteers, and simply awesome staff and Board of Directors....WE ALL have accomplished 5,000 adoptions since we opened 10/27/2007.  It took 5 years for the first 1,000 adoptions, and then 4,000 more lucky dogs and cats were adopted in the next 5 years.  WE THANK YOU, for your help!

Our Spring book sale is normally held in May..
