In the corners of our shelter, where pawprints linger and tails wag, an anonymous donor’s love shines brightly. With a heart full of memories, she donated $5,000 to sponsor adoption fees for every pet in our care.

Snickers, her loyal Great Dane, was more than a pet—he was her confidant, her laughter, and her solace. When cancer took him, it left a void that words cannot fill. Yet, in that emptiness, she found purpose: to honor Snickers’ legacy by helping other animals find their forever homes.

If you are looking for a new companion consider visiting our website, where Snickers’ spirit dances among wagging tails and hopeful eyes. Schedule an appointment and let love lead the way. Together, we’ll clear the shelter, one paw at a time.

To our anonymous donor: Your kindness echoes through these walls, and Snickers’ memory lives on. Thank you for lighting up our world.
