Compassion and care for all animals.
OPEN DOOR SHELTER
An open door agency, PHS accepts all animals from our service area, regardless of age, medical condition, breed or any other criteria. Our open admission policy is necessary to provide shelter and care for the thousands of animals that would otherwise have no place to go.
Upon arrival, all animals in our care receive a medical and behavioral evaluation. Most animals can be placed for adoption, but animals with untreatable health or behavior issues may be humanely euthanized.
Pet overpopulation is a real problem. We do not believe euthanasia is the solution. However, at times, we do not have enough available kennel space to care for all the animals that come through our doors. After exhausting all possible alternatives, we may need to make the difficult decision to euthanize otherwise adoptable animals to make space for incoming pets.
In 2014, 100% of adoptable cats and 99% of adoptable dogs were adopted or placed with our rescue partners.
