Volunteer to Help at the Shelter


Your Donation Goes a Long Way


We have temporarily suspended adoptions and intakes of cats and kittens after persistent cases of Feline Calicivirus – commonly known as Calici. This viral infection is common in shelters and presents as an upper respiratory infection. We are closing the shelter to the public to give us time to ensure no new outbreaks occur. The closure is expected to last until December 16, 2017, or until the veterinarian gives clearance. Please read all the information here. Thanks for your patience.

We’re nominated in the Toledo City Paper as best Pet Adoption Service! You can vote for us online through December 20th. Please take a minute to vote and share with your friends!


Have you gotten your 2018 Paws and Whiskers Calendar yet? They’re still available and make the perfect gift. Stop by the shelter and pick one up! Only $15 each or $16 if you pay by credit card. Get one while we still have them! (Sorry we can’t mail them – they are available for pick up at the shelter)

Have you done all of your shopping yet? If not, head over to Barnes & Noble. Buy a great gift there and then one of our talented volunteers will gift wrap it for you for free! Donations are accepted for the shelter. Check out all the information on dates.
