WHAT you can do



  • All levels of volunteers are needed!  At the ACC, with New Hope partners and individual rescue organizations.  Visit our LINKS page, and reach out to one!


  • Fostering takes animals out of the shelter environment and places them into homes of caring individuals for a little extra TLC.
  • Freeing up space in the shelter, or rescue, means space is made for another animal.
  • Yes, it's hard to say goodbye to your foster, but then you can get a new one, which is always so exciting!

  • Financial donations are welcomed by all organizations.  And most are tax deductible!
  • In-kind donations of towels, linens, toys, treats and food are an easy way to give. Everyone has some ugly bedding they can part with :-)
