Please note that due to being severely unstaffed, we often do not have capacity to answer the phones.
Today, Tuesday, October 3rd, we have 86 big dogs in the shelter. Our shelter capacity is 73 kennels, and we should always have several kennels open for incoming dogs, so we are currently OVER CAPACITY.
