Special Pals Animal Shelter


Special Pals has been giving homeless animals a second chance for more than 30 years. We are a limited-intake no-kill shelter, and we rely on a network of fosters plus our full-time shelter facility to care for our adoptable animals. We also provide affordable pet care services and low cost spay/neuter surgeries to support the community and other rescue organizations. People who are interested in fostering or adopting have the unique opportunity to "rent a dog" with Special Pals. This program gives our pups a day off from shelter life while you take them for a walk in a local dog park or a drive to the beach. Special Pals is always looking to expand our network of wonderful volunteers who lend a helping hand both on-site with the animals or off-site at fundraising and community events. Contact us to learn how you can help!
