Veterinary Clinic Gives Lifesaving Second Chances

Providing preventative vaccines and important spay/neuter surgeries, and offering low cost spay/neuter services to the public to help stop overpopulation is an important part of our mission and one you can help support.

Donating to the Vet Clinic fund will ensure we're able to continue giving lifesaving second chances to pets who need extra medical care. Only if we come together, will we save more precious lives.

Help us make a BIG impact - together.
Donate today. Thank you so much for your loyalty and support.

4 Paws Chapel &

Angels' Rest Memorial Garden

One of the hardest things to endure is when your loyal companion goes over the rainbow bridge. It is a heartbreaking time. 

The 4 Paws Chapel and Angels Rest Memorial Garden will be a place you can bring the ashes of your loved ones and put in the chapel or spread in the memorial gardens. It is our goal to have a place that will bring comfort to you when grieving. We invite you to be a part of this exciting project.

"I want you to know she is in the best place in the world. The very first night she slept with my parents in the bed right next to my mom, and ever since. Again, thank you so much for all you do, and did for my family!!!"

"I just wanted to say thank you for introducing us to Janey we love her already and she has been so sweet with my son so far. During the meeting at the shelter she was going back and forth with all the other cats there she seemed guarded, but the moment we brought her home she was a happy loving cat that has been following me and watching my son. I missed having a cat and look forward to many memories with Janey."

“WMR, thanks for the refund but as I told the girl, I'm good with you keeping it. You have so many furbabies to care for and besides Jenny is worth the little extra. I so love my little girl. Thanks for saving her and her little family and also for giving me the chance to adopt her. You have a great team! All have been so nice and also helpful. It's easy to see you care for the furkids and you enjoy what you do. AWESOME! ! For them "Thank You"!!
