In 1999 Daughtry Perritt (Pet
Depot owner) and our Director Todd
Nix sat down and came up with an
idea to try and adopt out more pets.
Pet Depot stated they were
willing to take excess puppies and
kittens from the shelter and adopt
them out at the same charge.
Neither side had any idea how
popular this program would become.
Immediately Pet Depot began adopting
out as many pets as the shelter.
"Pet Depot is just a fun place to
go for all ages. When you first walk
in you are greeted by our puppies
and kittens, and in the back you'll
find ferrets, snakes, birds, and
rabbits. We at the shelter can not
tell you how thankful we are for Pet
Depot. They have saved so many lives
its just incredible."

Director Todd Nix has created a
new character to assist in the early
childhood education of our students.
The new spokesman is " Pete" a
loveable mixed terrier who educates
kids by giving them a foundation to
build on when it comes to caring for
Pete tells kids to remember all
animals depend on us for love , food
, water , shelter , and medical
This is all in the format of a
coloring and educational book that
was provided by the HOBO
FOUNDATION. Director Nix states
there is no way to know how many
pets have been saved by the HOBO
FOUNDATION they have been a God
send to this shelter.
