Services we Provide
Our principal objective is to find homes for adoptable dogs, cats, and other small pets being housed and cared for in our facility.

We accept lost and abandoned animals, as well as those no longer suitable for their family.  We try to reunite lost pets with their owners.  Our lost-and-found pet service welcomes phone calls from anyone who has lost or found a pet.

We serve as an impoundment facility for the Town of Silver City and the unincorporated areas of Grant County, housing animals taken into custody by the city and county Animal Control Officers.

Reduced-fee rabies vaccination clinics are held on the second Saturday of each month from 9 a.m. to 12 noon.  Rabies shots, other immunizations for dogs and cats, and annual licenses required by city and county ordinances are available then.

In cooperation with local and county government plans for responding to local and regional disasters, we maintain ongoing plans to assist animal owners under emergency circumstances.
