Let’s face it, a visit to an animal shelter can be hard on the heart of any animal lover. It is a painful reminder that there are homeless, hurt, and abandoned animals in the world. But we encourage you to visit us, and to see that an animal shelter is also a place of hope! When looking at an animal, think of its story, and realize that many of them are here because they have been saved from an unhappy or unsafe situation. To them, the shelter has become a temporary sanctuary, where they can feel safety, warmth, and protection. But what they really get here is the hope for a real home! So please visit…the animals will thank you!
