Dog Shelter

Volunteers are love in motion.

The work we do for our animal friends would not be possible without the help of our volunteers. We are very proud of the organization and the direction we are headed. This year is going to be very exciting, and we hope to find supportive and dedicated volunteers who are willing to grow with us.
