Here is a list of local animal shelters and rescue organizations. It is by no means all-inclusive, but will give you a good place to start your search. If you are not ready to adopt, you might consider fostering a pet or donating time, money and/or items. The city animal shelters are in most need. The items they really appreciate are your old towels and blankets.
