Before volunteering, you must first attend one of our orientations.  These are held the first Sunday of every month at 2PM here at the shelter, unless it is a holiday weekend. Orientation dates are listed on our calendar under our events page.





Adopt this dog, Abigail.









Hello my name is Abigail. I am about a year old, and a Pit Bull mixed with some other breed that makes me quite small; about 25 pounds. I think I may have some French Bulldog in me to make me so small and cute! I am here as a lost pet and I cannot wait to get my cute little chubby body into a nice and loving home! I am nicely calm and I crave love and petting. When a person comes up to my cage, I try to get myself as close to the gate as I can in order to facilitate human contact and loving petting.

Please hurry and come meet me because all of my charm is being wasted here in this cage!

Wags and kisses,

Adopt this cat, Candy.





My name is Candy and I am a very colorful and friendly 1 year old girl. I am very good with other cats and I love people! I am gentle and sweet and love to snoop around my surroundings, making sure there is nothing that needs to be pounced on.

I love to be the official greeter in my room here at the shelter, and I think that makes people relax and warm up to the atmosphere of the shelter.  So don't put off coming to meet me or some of the other kids here, just come and look at us, hold us, tell us how pretty we are, and then adopt one of us (preferable me!).

Rubs and meows,

Adopt this kitten, Pepper.






Hi! My name is Pepper. I am a sweet and gentle 4 month old girl. I am a little shy at first, but since I have been treated so kindly here, I have come to learn that being petted is a great thing! I have become very loving and love to meow in my tiny, soft voice. Please come take me home for more loving!

Purrs and love,

Did you know?

  • Did you know each day 70,000 puppies and kittens are born in the U.S. As long as these birth rates exist, there will never be enough homes for all of these animals. Please Spay and Neuter your pets, and help save lives and end needless suffering of these pets. We offer low-cost options for altering your pets.
  • We have cats and kittens for adoption at the Arnold PetSmart. These cats are housed there so that they can get more visibility in the community and have better chances at finding their forever homes!
  • Our dogs travel every Saturday to area PetSmarts and Petcos with our mobile adoptions.
  • This helps get these pups more visibility in the community, and gives them more of a chance at finding their forever homes. Please check our calendar for locations!
