Medical Care Services


The shelter has veterinarians on staff to attend to all the in-house pets in our care. They assess and treat the ill and injured animals we receive. They perform routine health checks on every animal that comes into our facility and order any necessary medical treatment for the animal’s well-being. They also perform spay-neuter surgery on our adoptable animals and assist with our low-cost Spay Days. Every pet that comes into our facility is given the same level of care we would give our own pets. For those special pets with special needs…we go the extra mile for them with treatments and emergency care to improve their quality of life.


Veterinary Services

Our veterinarians perform many procedures on the animals in our facility and we will bear the costs of care when performing these lifesaving procedures, including use of outside specialist veterinarians to complete procedures that our beyond our in-house resources. Just some of the procedures that we have performed:

  • Emergency surgeries on animals hit by a vehicle
  • Emergency surgeries on animals struck by a bullet
  • Tumor removal surgeries
  • Stitch up lacerations
  • Treat poisoned pets
  • Emergency surgery on animals caught in leg-hold traps
  • Surgical amputations and enucleations to stop infection and improve quality of life. We will always do best by the pets entrusted to our care.
