We will strive to accomplish our Mission by focusing our efforts on:
The efficient and effective adoption of homeless animals to responsible owners;
The diligent promotion of spay and neuter to curb the population of unwanted animals;

   community supporters;
The continuous public education programs on the prevention of cruelty to animals; 
The prudent stewardship of the Shelter’s tangible and intangible assets.
