Pet of the Week
Elvis is a two year old black lab mix who is adapting to life without a roommate. His friend for the past eight months just got adopted and Elvis doesn’t quite know what to do except take the whole bed for himself and watch the world pass. Elvis loves walks and has gotten along well with the dogs at the shelter. He has been with us since the 2nd of December
, is heartworm negative and current on his DHLPP and Bordatella vaccinations.

Please be advised before adopting...
Panleukopenia is a highly infectious viral disease. Signs include diarrhea (sometimes bloody), vomiting, lethargy and fever, and death. It can range from mild diarrhea to fatal disease.
Diarrhea in an otherwise bright, alert, eating, drinking kitten is more likely due to diet change, stress, parasites, or dietary indiscretion.
Due to the high volume of STRAY cats we intake through this facility and not having a vet on site we are unable to catch all sickness issues that may arise. Our staff does everything that we can possible do to isolate all cats that are displaying obvious signs of illness. Please understand we highly recommend when adopting that the new pet be taken for a complete health exam and isolated from all other animals in the home until a clean bill of health is given by a veterinarian.
All though we are treating to get out, and keep this awful disease out of the shelter, please be advised some cats may still have this or may be able to catch this and become ill!!!!!
Thank you for your understanding and patronage in this matter.
We're looking for you!
We've had a volunteer program in the works and it's now up and running at our new building, so now we're looking for volunteers and fosters. Our volunteer program is more than helping with cleaning, we're also looking for individuals or families to come in and work with the animals. There are so many opportunities available and plenty of animals waiting to see you! Opportunities include walking dogs, bathing dogs, socializing cats & dogs, and snapping some great shots of the fur-babies to post on our website to help in finding them forever homes. We are also looking for loving foster families for the animals we get in that may need a little extra attention and care. Does this sound like something you're interested in? Please stop by our facility to pick up an application and list of volunteer opportunities or call (830) 629-5287 for more details.
