Children who grow up with pets learn responsibility and empathy. Always teach kiddos the proper way to handle their pets in a loving and safe manner. It is an amazing learning experience! It has also been proven to reduce later onset of allergies.
During kitten season, hundreds of kittens enter shelters. Adopters and fosters are needed to save them all. When you adopt a kitten raised by a foster you make room in their home for a whole new litter! Let us know if you'd like to foster.
Did you know about 40% of dogs in shelters are actually full breed? Many were lost or were surrendered for a variety of reasons such as their owner moving. For a fraction of the cost of a breeder, find the dog you are looking for!

is a myth. If everyone chose to adopt from their local shelter then pet stores and unscrupulous breeders would be less motivated to sell puppies. This is the best way to shut down puppy mills. Support adoption!
