Give Adoptable Pets a Chance to Go Home!
Medical care costs for treatable health related problems can keep loving, life-long animal companions from being adopted. Some pets pass our behavior assessment but are passed over by potential adopters because the pet needs dental work, has a chronic disease such as diabetes, an infection that can be cured or an injury that can be repaired. Donations to the Trippa Fund provide funds needed to care for these animals and give them the chance they deserve to leave the shelter in the arms and hearts of a forever family.
“Dallas” will get the dental care he needs to get adopted! THANK YOU TRIPPA FUND DONORS!

“Trippa” came to us as a stray, limping on her right hind leg. Although the friendly rat terrier/Jack Russell terrier mix had no microchip and no one came to claim her, we knew somebody must have loved the little stray because her nails had been painted pink.
A trip to the veterinarian did not bring good news. Her leg was shattered beyond repair and required amputation at an estimated cost of $400 to $500 for the surgery. To make matters worse, Trippa was diagnosed with Parvo, a highly contagious and potentially fatal virus.
But “Trippa” is a fighter! She recovered from the virus and her young body began to heal itself. Although she will always walk with a limp, the veterinarian recommended against surgery and our little terrier went to her fur-ever home on all four legs!
Not all of the sick and injured animals who come to the shelter are so lucky. The fund established in her name and honor helps us care for these unfortunate little ones until they are healthy enough to be adopted by a loving pet parent family.
Thank you to our Trippa Fund donors!
