Adopting a Pet Just Became Easier and More Affordable!
Thinking about adopting a pet? Well we now have HUNDREDS of reasons for you to make a new best friend! Thanks to the Petco Foundation, you will receive a Certificate of Appreciation for FREE basic pet care when you adopt an adult cat or a dog weighing at least 40 lbs--a value of $550 for adult cats; and $650 for medium-to-large size dogs. Each voucher covers vaccinations; routine de-wormers; heartworm and leukemia screening; a 1-year supply of flea/tick preventative, AND a dental cleaning! Certificates are good for one year and will be issued at the time of adoption. So, don't waste time! Be sure to check out our available dogs and cats, select your pet, and then submit your Adoption Application!
Clear the Shelter!
Animal Care is once again participating in Clear the Shelters! Because of COVID-19, this year the promotion will continue through August 31 and all adoptions will take place virtually. Please visit our adoption page for information about our virtual adoption process. Not only are our adoption fees waived, but for those who adopt an adult cat, or a dog who is 40lbs or larger, you will receive a special Certificate of Appreciation, that will provide FREE basic pet care (see the above story)!

Found Kittens? Here is What you Should Do!
A shelter is no place for baby kittens. If you
find baby kittens please leave them in place to see if their Mother is in the area--she is the best caregiver for her babies. If Mom is not around, then please help by
fostering the kittens until they are old enough to be adopted. Animal Care will supply food and medical care for the family. Read all about
Caring for Found Kittens here.
