It's going to be a long, cold winter. Cuddle up with one of our felines - adopt a boo or two! 

72 HOURS ONLY - ALL cat adoption fees will be reduced to $10. 

Due to the overpopulation at the shelter due to an extreme increase in those surrendering their pets and due to many animals in the community not being spayed/neutered there is a cat overpopulation not just at the shelter, but in our communities. 

Help us find these furry friends forever homes! You can start looking through our site now to see if anyone catches your eye! 

If you have any questions about adoption, please view our About Adopting page or call the shelter at 605-338-4441. To speed up the process, you can fill out your adoption application at home! It is available on our website! 

A meow massages the heart. They are calling out for a forever home. Won't you be their treat this Halloween? 
Some restrictions may apply.
