The Save Our Strays (S.O.S.) Animal Shelter was established in 1981 with the goal of rescuing abandoned and unwanted dogs and cats. They opened the no-kill shelter in 1987 after six years of hard labor by committed volunteers and financial contributions from people and companies. They are a private, 501 (c)(3) non-profit company that is entirely funded by donations and fundraising.
The majority of S.O.S.'s efforts are concentrated in three areas. S.O.S., first and foremost, provides a safe haven for unwanted dogs and cats. Second, it makes an effort to place these animals in suitable homes. Finally, S.O.S. aims to educate the public about dog and cat overpopulation, as well as the advantages of adopting a companion pet from a shelter.
S.O.S. serves their community and is committed to keeping it's no-kill shelter open. Their previous and current restoration and expansion initiatives highlight their dedication to putting a stop to the tragedy of pet overpopulation. Despite having to turn away many animals due to their tiny facility and staff, they have rescued, rehabilitated, spayed/neutered, and adopted out over 3,000 pets.
