Community Programs

Connecting Pets, People, and
Community While Saving Lives

We offer training classes, mobile adoption events,
and education & outreach, we offer these special programs in our communities.

We Believe Pets & People Live Better Together

We are always looking for new opportunities to target gaps in the regional animal welfare system,
and for ways to promote responsible pet parenting and the human-animal bond.
One of the marvelous things about community is that it enables us to welcome and help people in a way we couldn’t as individuals.

Spay and Neuter Clinics

We work with other organizations to offer spay and neuter clinics. Some are focused on TNR (Trap, Neuter, Return) for community cat colonies. Other times, we will offer spots to the public. Watch our social media and event calendar for upcoming clinics.

Canine Training Classes

We offer occasional training classes at our Animal Resource Center. Watch social media and our event calendar for future classes.

Memorial Garden

Angels Wings Memorial Garden is a private retreat that includes a walking path around a pond, native plants, and a place to sit and reflect.

We are in the process of re-designing and re-focusing the garden to serve all who are grieving. Watch our social media and website for news.
