Imagine...a community where abandoned and homeless animals are not left out of a shelter due to overcrowding.


Imagine...a community where euthanasia of healthy, adoptable companion animals is no longer an acceptable method of population control.


Imagine...a community where each pet owner, animal control facility, and rescue organization has access to high quality, affordable sterilization and vaccine services for the animals in their care.


Don't just imagine...be a part of it. VOLUNTEER
