The "Proud Animal Lovers Shelter" aka (PALS) is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization supported by donations and any grants we are fortunate enough to receive. We are very grateful for these.

We operate with only one full time paid Shelter Manager, Angela Gatton, one part time paid employee and many wonderful folks who volunteer their time, we couldn't continue to shelter and care for the animals waiting for adoption without them.
