We are a 501c3 not for profit animal shelter and have been in business since 1953. We have been in this location and building since 1962 and it was not new when we purchased it. We replaced our roof last year and have sided the building a few years ago and now it's time to REPLACE all the inside kennels. We have repaired over the years but they have seen their better days. It will cost us $46,000. to replace all the dog kennels. We take in animals locally and also rescue a lot of animals from other areas to keep them from being euthanized. We need your funds for our kennels so we don't have to take away funds from our rescue efforts. We are trying to do this by February 2016 so we will have minimal down time for installation.

I’m donating in loving memory of our friend and colleague Ted Henricks who passed away suddenly last week. Ted loved his adopted dog that came from your rescue and his wife Lisa suggested a donation in lieu of flowers. Please accept this donation on behalf of my wife Karen and I in Ted’s memory.

I adopted a kitten from there 17 1/2 years ago. Her name was Sniffers and she just recently passed.

Going back to 1968, my family adopted several cats and dogs from Kay's. As an adult, 2 of my fur babies ca.e from there. Both were exceptional dogs, but my Bernese Golden Retriever, Nikko, had my heart from Day 1 and took a big chunk of it with him when he passed over 12 years later. Hope you get your new cages soon!
