What services do we provide to the community?

  • Humane housing for dogs and puppies, as well as cats and kittens whose owners no longer can care for them
  • A place to locate a lost pet, thus increasing the chances that the lost animals and its owner can be reunited
  • Responsible pet ownership instruction. Families are assisted with choosing a pet appropriate to their circumstances; this also helps reduce the number of unwanted pets
  • Adoption opportunities. Centralized services to help homeless and stray animals get adoption exposure.
  • Community Education presentations and public education
  • A Spay Neuter Incentive Fund (SNIF), in cooperation with Wayne County area veterinarians, to assist families who cannot afford the full cost of spaying or neutering their pets
  • Contracts with Wayne County towns and villages for stray dogs
