  • call a shelter and ask if they are a kill shelter. They should have to tell you.

  • Go to On the left there are search fields and you can enter your zip to find shelters and rescue orgs in your area. Mos tlistings will say if they're a kill shelter. Also try the message boards on there. They tend to post the most urgent ones in there. And THANK YOU for rescuing. You're awesome. :)

  • Not sure about the kill shelter part, but there is a Dept. of Animal Services on Falkenburg Road. That's where we got our first dog from. Here's the website.
