About Us

The SPCA-Animal Rescue is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing rescue, temporary housing, care and assistance to stray and unwanted animals in our community. We actively seek to promote responsible pet ownership and we do our best to find loving, caring and responsible homes for all the animals in our care.

Last year over a thousand animals were adopted and found their Forever Homes through the SPCA Animal Rescue. These include all shapes and sizes and breeds of cats, dogs, rats, guinea pigs, rabbits and more! We strive towards reaching one specific goal- finding each animal a loving home and reducing the overwhelming population of homeless animals in our City.

We invite you to drop by the shelter during adoption hours to visit the animals, or browse our site and view our adoptable animals On-line.
