A Message from the Executive Director
A core principle in our mission is to provide adoption of companion animals, and our adoption staff was exceptionally busy during the month of June, helping 185 animals find new homes! That means 185 dogs, cats, parakeets, rabbits, and guinea pigs are now living with a family committed to providing a good home. We celebrate every adoption, and there was a lot of celebrating going on last month!

Every animal under our care remains here until it finds an appropriate home, whether that time is measured in days or months. And each adoption opens a spot for an animal in need of help. Thank you for supporting us in our mission. It is because of you we are able to continue this important work.

Lile Memorial Dog Park Dedication
Look for the upcoming dedication of the new
Lile Memorial Dog Park in September!

The last touches are being made to the dog park! We cannot wait for our dogs to have the large space to run and play, enjoy the agility equipment, and go for a swim in the pond. The pavilion will provide a space for our staff and volunteers to expand humane educational opportunities, and we are already making plans for outdoor events!
Stay tuned for more information!
