Meet Your Furever Friend

Our adoptables can’t wait to find their match!

Sterling

Sterling

Hello there, I’m Sterling. I’m a distinguished gentleman looking for a new home. I’m quiet and affectionate but can be shy at first. It takes me some time to trust but once I do I’m your good buddy.

Cooper

Cooper

MEOW! I’m Cooper and I’m super duper! I’m a few years old but I act like a kitten in a lot of ways. I have unlimited energy and I go, go, go! I need a home that has a lot of time to play with me and hold me.

Maggie

Maggie

I’m about 12 years old, but I’m very healthy and I love people. As you can see, I also love my best friend, Eddie, so we need to go home together.

Pip

Pip

I’m looking for my one-and-only, and I mean that literally: I’m in search of a one-person household where I can also be the only animal.

Our Programs

Learn how we help animals at our shelter and in the community.

Our Shelter & Foster Program

We operate a free-roam shelter for cats and foster program for dogs and cats. We commit to the animals we rescue for life, including post-adoption support and a lifetime return policy.

Animal Aid Cares Fund

The Cares Fund is a partnership with local veterinary clinics to assist with financial aid for urgent medical or behavioral care. Since 2011, we have provided more than $50,000 in lifesaving grants.

Our Heartstrings Program

We specialize in helping animals we call Heartstrings Pets. These longer-term adoptables may be senior animals, shy or undersocialized pets, or animals with medical or behavioral needs.
