The Stafford Animal Shelter prevents animal distress by caring for displaced animals, facilitating adoptions and reunions, minimizing pet overpopulation and pioneering humane education & community outreach.  Stafford is a no-kill, open-door shelter that accepts all pets in need regardless of age, species, breed or medical condition.  They have no length of stay restrictions so animals welcome until they find their forever homes.  For more information, to volunteer or to view adoptable pets, visit: www.staffordanimalshelter.org.
