When your application is approved we will call you. Please refrain from calling the shelter, so we can get through the applications in a quick and orderly fashion and be available for animal emergencies.
We welcome your questions!
As you can imagine, we receive hundreds of calls each week.
We do our best to respond to every voicemail within 24 hours.
We have limited resources, however, so we appreciate your patience regarding non-emergency inquiries.
