Please help us keep our animals, staff, volunteers, & community safe:
Please do not linger, or exit your vehicle for a purpose other than dropping off a donation. We love your pets, but please keep them safely at home. Do not drop-off used items (other than those listed above), opened food/treats, or medications.
