THE 7 DAY
A few of our
animals are not yet ready to be adopted, the reason for this is that we

We typically tend to be seen by
the public as just "dog catchers", but in
reality, there is a great deal more to it than that! In addition
to the stray or vicious dogs that we deal with, a lot of animals that

"Unfortunately each year, too many animals are euthanized by our facility because of the "irresponsible
pet owner". We have the job of cleaning up, where society has failed.
Our shelter is not capable

will help in the placement of some of these animals"
