Staff & Board

Each person on our staff is wholly dedicated to the mission of the shelter and approaches the work with love and devotion for the well being of these unwanted and lost pets. These people work tirelessly on behalf of the animals we shelter every day of the week, even all holidays. Every animal is special to us and receives the best care we can possibly give.
