The Guardian Angel Fund supports the care of animals that we board in situations of domestic violence and emergency evacuations as well as animals we accept from abuse and hoarding situations.

The Open Arms Fund supports rescues from other overfull or euthanasia Shelters, rescue groups, and emergency situations where we open our doors and arms to these pets whenever we have space and provide medical care, spay/neuter surgeries, socialization and match them with forever homes.

Walk Your DogWith this simple smartphone app, you can donate to waiting pets just by taking your best friend for a stroll. The app is free to download and to use; you simply start it at the beginning of your walk and stop it when you get home. No dog? No problem! You can “Walk with Cassie,” their representative dog. Periodically, Wooftrax will donate to the shelter for each mile walked by app users. What a great incentive to get outside, enjoy nature, get in shape, make your pup happy, and help homeless pets all on the same walk!  


Have a great time while helping animals in need. We have many different volunteer opportunities to use the special talents of everyone- from young to old!
