Friends funds medical and dental care, parasite prevention, spay and neuter for community cats, as well as collars, tags and leashes for adopted pets. Friends also funds senior medical wellness exams, hospice care and animal enrichment items for pets that are awaiting their new loving families at either the Shelter or in foster care. Friends joins in the Shelter’s effort to ensure that every pet is offered the best opportunity to leave the shelter healthier and happier.
