• We find homes for pets whose owners are unable to continue looking after them.

• We provide boarding services for dogs on a daily or weekly basis.

• We spay and neuter all animals that come to our shelter at our own expense, this helping to prevent pet overpopulation.

• We ensure that animals leaving our shelter are healthy and have been fully vaccinated, dewormed, free of fleas and have been seen by a veterinarian in case of illness.


We are a non-profit organization who receives funding through the following ways:

  • Donations
  • Fundraising events
  • Animal boarding and Doggy Daycare
  • Sunshine Shop Thrift Stores
  • Memberships
