Felines & Canines is dedicated to providing a safe and loving shelter to abandoned, injured, abused and neglected animals until their permanent adoptive home is found. This 501(c)(3), no-kill animal shelter, strives to strengthen the human/animal relationship through counseling, education, and compassion.
Their Mission is to assist in ending the euthanasia of adoptable cats and dogs through rescue, rehoming, education and spay/neuter efforts. To provide exemplary medical and emotional care, in addition to the warmest, most home-like environment possible to the animals in their care. To offer an outstanding adoption experience, with emphasis placed on human / companion animal matchmaking, education, and respect – never judgment. To embrace and promote the idea of “forever family.” Once an animal has joined the Felines & Canines family, they make a lifetime commitment to care for that animal. When an animal has been adopted, they promise to be an accessible, supportive resource to that family forever. To never become complacent. The needs of animals and the community are constantly evolving and changing; therefore it is their responsibility to do so, as well. They will never settle for good – they strive for greatness.
