This year’s annual fundraiser, ValenTAILS, was another huge success. This year was the earliest that we sold out of our event tickets and we also had a record breaking number of silent auction items available to bid on.

Venue 906 graciously donated their space for our event. We greatly appreciated the evening’s specialty drinks that were named after some of our adoptable cats.

Schultz Catering from Norway put out another spectacular spread of delicious food. We are certain that no one left hungry.

We cannot thank everyone enough that made this year’s event the best one yet. Many thanks to our generous sponsors and donors that contributed monetarily and/or items for the silent and live auctions. Many thanks to our volunteers that worked tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure that the event came together. Many thanks to the staff, volunteers, and family members that assisted at the event itself.

We hope that all who came to this year’s ValenTAILS had a fantastic time. We are looking forward to seeing you all again in 2024!

Featured Pets


Waddles is a 1 ½ year old neutered Shepherd/Dane mix. He is housebroke, crate trained and knows some commands. He just needs a little manners as far as jumping on you. He is VERY active and needs an active owner or family. Children should be older due to his size and energy. He needs to meet potential dog friends and he probably would chase cats. He appears to be somewhat crossed eyed, but we haven’t noticed any problems.


Meet Sammer, a 9-year old tiger and white spayed female who was surrendered by her owner. She is an absolute doll, and loves all of the affection. This sweet girl would likely make a great companion to snuggle up with. She is good with children, other cats, and dogs.


This pretty girl is Tuxedo a 2 year old black and white female who was surrendered along with her three kittens. After being a great mama, she is finally ready to find her forever home. She is super sweet, and loves all of the pets you give to her. We had her spayed. Shelter member since July 27, 2022
