Day at Shelter



Adopt from us!

All animals are spayed/neutered, microchipped and vaccinated

As the only public shelter in Coachella Valley operating under a no-kill philosophy, we treat every animal with compassion and love. We work with our animals and adopters to be set up for success with excellent medical care, training and socialization programs. Come visit today!

Adoptable dog Spotlight: Daphne

Goofy, loving girl

Daphne wants to spend time with you... playing, walking, hiking and showering you with her love. This sweet girl has been with us way too long and just needs a chance to show you how much she will add to your life! 

Learn about Daphne!

Adoptable cat spotlight: Stefan

Mature and Suave

Stefan is a sweet senior with a laid-back style. This fella adores being combed and he'll relax into a puddle of purrs. Silly cat hats? Oh, yeah! Once this guy's spotted coat is photo-ready, he's all set for costume changes. Come in today and discover the show stopping, sugarplum ways of Stefan.
