    We are lucky to have volunteers that come in and help us take care of the cats and dogs in the shelter.  Each month, our volunteers give us approximately 500 hours of service!

    Highlights
    Bark Park Big Hill - Closing

    The time has come. Some of you may have noticed the large "patches" on the hill. With the constant rain and weather, the hill hasn't been keeping up appearances. We received word from the Solid Waste folks that November 12, 2014, the main hill will close for the winter. In the interim, please stay away from the patches and any cones that have been put out. These mark areas that are either undergoing refurbishment or repair. On a positive note, a grant application has been submitted for new furniture and replacement trash receptacles for the park. We will keep everyone posted on the developments. Sonny's Acres will remain open throughout the winter season.

    Mingle With Our Mutts

    Please join us the Second Sunday of each month from Noon - 2 PM for Mingle with Our Mutts we will have lots of adoptable dogs and cats looking for new homes.
