Attention: During lockdown, the shelter will be open by appointment ONLY. Note: call volume is very high. We appreciate your patience during this time.
Animal House Shelter is a non-profit, no-kill 501(c)3 shelter for all breeds of dogs and cats. We rescue, care for, and find homes for homeless pets who arrive at AHS for various reasons, including:
- Abuse, neglect, or abandonment
- Owners whose time, income, or situation changes
- Animals scheduled for euthanasia at other clinics
Once rehabilitated and ready, they are carefully matched with homes for adoption or foster care. Will their new home be yours? Apply to Adopt!
Looking to bring a pet home?
Our goal is to find loving, stable homes for the pets in our care. Learn more about how you can adopt or foster your new best friend.

Our rehabilitated and healthy pets are matched up with the right owners to find Forever Homes. Are you our next hero?
