Hours: PLEASE NOTE! Due to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) preventative measures, our adoption center is currently closed to the public. Only essential animal care staff is allowed on-site at this time. Volunteer shifts, volunteer orientations, donation drop offs, and tours are all cancelled until further notice. Thank you for your understanding! Please stay safe and healthy!

We have a small staff, and we strive to provide a stress-free environment for our senior pets while ensuring that your adoption experience is personalized and never rushed. We do not allow walk-thru viewings of the facility. Tours are by appointment only on regularly scheduled days. Please use the form below to contact us.

Please note that Route 47 is a fast country road, so please put your signal on and slow down long before you think you need to! We are located on the west side of Route 47 between Route 176 and Lucas Road. Our driveway is across from a red barn with a big white silo.

If coming from 14 & 47, the driveway will be on your right hand side just past Lucas Road. If you are coming from 176 and 47, the driveway will be on your left hand side.
