EMBER – Ember is a female mastiff mix, very sweet, not suited in a home with chickens, ducks as she eats them. She is spayed and up to date on shots. Adoption fee is $80.

WILMA – Wilma is a female adult cat, trapped as a feral and tamed. She is still a bit wary of people she doesn't know but does warm up. She is spayed and up to date on shots. Adoption fee is sponsored so there is no charge to take her home.

CHARLIE – Charlies is a male beagle/chihuahua mix, 6 years old, very sweet but not suited in a home with children. He is neutered and up to date on shots. Adoption fee is $80.



We were lucky to open our shelter, finally, in June of 2013 and we've been able to successfully adopt out almost triple the amount of dogs and cats that we did before the shelter opened its doors. It's taken a lot of love, hard work and dedication, but the animals make every day a joy for us! 

We house, on average, 50 dogs and cats in our facility. 


If you are unable to adopt or foster or volunteer, consider donating! Every dollar goes to the care of the dogs and cats.

2019 goals

One of our big goals for 2019 is to continue to control the feral cat population in Martin County. We also will advocate for spaying and neutering, as always!
