This cutie will rock and roll her way right into your heart. She is an energetic 2 year old female pitty cross who knows the following commands: sit, stay, wait, down and shake a paw and many more!

Boarding policy clarification

The Board was forced to raise the boarding fees two months ago because of the increase in minimum wage. Upon reviewing our boarding fee structure it was decided to implement a boarding check out policy. Boarding check out is now by 11:00 a.m. daily. If you pick up your pet after 11:00 you will be charged for the day.  A check out time enables SPCA staff to clean kennels prior to the end of shift.

Sponsorship: Can't adopt? Want to help?

We have decided to offer sponsorships of the pets in our care.  Many people can't adopt a pet but they would like to support one.  By sponsoring a pet you can help pay some of the costs of the care of the dogs or cats in the care of the SPCA.

How does it work?

For a $25 donation you can sponsor a dog or cat of your choice for the duration of its stay at the SPCA. Your name will appear under the animal's picture on the blog, on the animal's kennel and on Facebook with the animal from time to time.  It can be a personal name or a company name. If you don't want your name listed it can be recorded as anonymous.

Only one sponsor per animal and first come-first sponsored. Sponsorship can be done by dropping into the SPCA between 9-1 and 6:30-8:30 daily or by calling the SPCA with your credit card.

If you have any questions please email Cathy at
