Receive a special discount on the adoption fee by adopting a Pet of the Week!!!

You know folks, it is really difficult to have a home and just like that it is gone. I guess it was my fault because someone moved in and had a baby; I did not care for the baby. I got sent to the shelter so everyone can be sure the baby is safe; I understand that but now I need a new home and family. I am a five year old German Shepherd Dog. I am neutered and pretty smart, if I say so myself. I know how to sit and stay and I am crate trained and house trained. I will admit I don't care for other dogs or cats but I don't think that makes me a bad dog. I am thinking I would like an adult only home or a home with older children. Please don't hold it against me that I don't like babies, I just don't understand them. I am a good boy, I just need to find the right family so we can all find happiness. All these years everyone has gotten it wrong, black cats bring you good luck, not bad luck! I bet you didn't know that and since I am a black cat I think it is my duty to educate the public. So now is the time to come and get me, I have been waiting for over a month. I was homeless and in poor shape when these good people took me in. I am now fit as a fiddle just hoping that my luck will change and my family will come for me sooner rather than later. I am nice with other cats and litter trained. All kidding aside, I really really want to have a place to call home. I am only a little over a year old so we could have a long loving relationship, don't you agree.

We are looking for volunteers to walk dogs, cat cuddle or to help with general housekeeping at the shelter. Volunteering at our shelter is very rewarding! Our animals love the attention, and the socialization provided by volunteers helps get them adopted more quickly. Dog walkers must be at least 18 years old and able to handle energetic dogs. If you have a few free hours each week, please give us a call at 814-443-2121.


We have an Amazon Wish List of items the shelter needs. Items can be shipped directly to the shelter, making donating easy.

Help reduce the number of animals in shelters! If anyone is interested in sponsoring one of our shelter pets to be spayed or neutered please call us at 814-443-2121 for details. Thank you.


Some of our animals are in foster homes. Please call ahead if there is someone in particular you wish to meet in case we need to make arrangements with the foster family. Thank you.

Volunteer Dog Walkers Needed

Please help!  We need volunteers to help us exercise the dogs.  We try to walk the dogs each day to provide them with the exercise and attention they so desperately need.  You can volunteer as little or as much as you like.  If you would be interested in helping us care for our animal guests, please call the shelter at 814-443-2121.
