The Bonnie L. Hays Small Animal Shelter cares for about 4000 pets each year. The Shelter is a haven for homeless, unwanted, abandoned and abused companion pets. Our organization promotes humane treatment of animals, operates a pet adoption center, coordinates pet lost and found services, enforces local and state animal laws, educates the public about responsible animal care and facilitates a pet assisted therapy. We serve an estimated 150,000 pets and their owners in a geographic area of 727 square miles and a human population of over 500,000.
They're not like other animal shelters. They're kind and compassionate to their animals; treated with respect and giving hope to creatures in need of a new home. I once found a stray dog, a gray poodle, in my neighborhood. When I saw that stray I immediately thought of Bonnie Hays. But I wasn't able to walk all the way over there but I called them up and they kindly took the dog, recorded the information on the tags and put her in a spacious kennel. Shortly after, the owners arrived and became reunited with the dog I found. If it weren't for the help from Bonnie Hays, that dog would possibly still be with me and the owners wouldn't have found her. Their service is friendly, welcoming and beyond exceptional. There's a sense of pure honesty with their work and goal for finding a home for these pets.
