Do you have the time, the space, the patience, the love? Too often we find our shelter bulging at the seams. Like the tide, it ebbs and flows. 

From time to time, we need to move an animal off site for a variety of reasons - space, medical, behavioral, the list could go on and on. 

This is a HUGE responsibility. Nonetheless, we think you will not find anything more rewarding than helping an innocent animal work its way into a loving, forever home.
