 We are taking returnable/refundable cans and bottles! Thank you

Our 2024 ValenTAILS fundraiser was another record-breaking event! We had more silent auction items than ever and we sold out of our event tickets in record time.

We cannot thank Venue 906 enough for donating the space for our event, and we do take advantage of every square inch! We always look forward to the fun and delicious specialty drinks that are featured after some of our adoptable animals.

Whatever can we say about Schultz Catering except DELICIOUS and ABUNDANT!

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 2025!

Featured Pets


Bubba is a 2-3 yr. old male Pit Bull that came in as a stray. He is very friendly and playful, and very clean. He doesn’t mind cats, seems to be good with other dogs but should still meet new potential dog friends. He would be good with older children due to his size. He even was already neutered! Now, how is an owner not missing this dog? One doesn’t care that their short haired dog is missing out in this cold and snow? If anyone knows anything about this dog, it will remain anonymous. Update 1/22/24 Bubba is toy/food aggressive.


This handsome boy is Licorice, a 3-4 year old black neutered male who came in as a stray. He has a quiet personality and can be a bit shy at first but loves head scratches. A quiet home and older children would be best. He was even already neutered!


This gorgeous girl is Gracie, a 8 year old grey and white spayed female who was surrendered by her owner. She is a quiet girl who loves attention. She would do best being an only cat.
