As an open door shelter, we believe all animals deserve a safe haven and to have their care and treatment guided by the Five Freedoms.
We believe that by harnessing the power and collaboration of the community, guided by our knowledge and leadership in animal welfare, we can better support animals together.
We believe that our role is to serve our community, both animals and people, with respect, dignity and compassion.
We believe that by building a foundation of trust in the communities we serve, our organization can thrive and we will be well positioned to fulfill our mission.
We value the time, thoughts and talents of the staff and people in our community, including volunteers, supporters and our partners.
We have a responsibility to think progressively, accept responsibility for our actions, ensure existing laws are enforced, and to be good stewards of the resources we have, all to improve the lives of the animals and communities we serve.
