We are a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization. To continue to help the animals in our area, we rely heavily on the support of animal lovers like yourself. We cannot do it without you.



Kittens and puppies are born year round, we are in need of foster homes. If you believe you can foster for us, please click the button below to learn more.


Looking for a new companion? Well, you’ve come to the right place! We have many dogs, cats, kittens, and puppies waiting for their forever homes!


You can make a difference by volunteering. Want to help ‘save the world,’ one animal at a time? We could use your skills and love to help our animals.

We are seeking professional members of our community and dedicated animals lovers who would love to volunteer their time and talents to the SPCA Board!  We are an active group that works for the welfare of our shelter animals every day — not just at a monthly meeting.   If you would like to be considered, please send your resume or letter of interest.
