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!
