Pretties for Pitties
Be the voice for the voiceless

Community Outreach Program

It is our goal to keep pets in their homes, whenever possible. Many dogs who go to shelters never leave. Some reasons animals end up in shelters include:

  • Costs related to owning a pet - food, vaccinations, vet bills, etc.
  • Unexpected births
  • Pet gets out and has no identification
  • Animal is abused/take away due to owner ignorance

We work to overcome some of these obstacles to pet ownership through our various programs by providing food, low cost vaccinations, low cost micro chipping, heart worm preventatives, access to low cost spay/neuter and pet ownership education.
