A Great Place to Visit
SHAID stands for, Sheltering Helpless Animals in Distress. It is a fantastic place to visit, perhaps sit and cuddle a cat for a bit or just have a look around. There is always something great happening at our Shelter. If you have never been to SHAID, or it’s been a long time since you visited, we welcome you to stop in.
SHAID is a non-profit Shelter that provides temporary care for cats/kittens and dogs/puppies. Our small, but wonderful Shelter is set up to care for up to 10 dogs/puppies and up to 50 cats/kittens in our adoptable areas. At SHAID we care for the animals until they find a loving forever home, there are NO time limits at SHAID. Each pet deserves the right to have a family that loves them, cares for them and provides them with everything they need for life.
SHAID is very fortunate to have caring staff and wonderful volunteers, and it shows in our Shelter. Volunteering can be grooming, cleaning, walking dogs (when required), fundraising or doing repairs just to name a few things some of our volunteers do. It is ALL important to SHAID and SHAID pets! To find out how to become a volunteer, please inquire at SHAID.
When visiting SHAID don’t forget to stop at the Playpen area, you will find several cats playing and greeting you at the door. You will probably notice Gus first, he is very playful. Gus is all black, he is 6-7 months old. Gus will be a great addition to a loving family, he can entertain you for hours.
Also in the playpen, you will find 3 year old Andy. He is a large Tabby with white markings, he is a quiet and affectionate boy who loves everyone. Andy will be a great cat for anyone wanting a companion or an addition to their family.
Before you leave SHAID, take a look at the “Wall of Hearts”. It is growing daily with some wonderfully decorated hearts. The Have-A-Heart Campaign will run to Valentine’s Day at SHAID. Check for all HAH locations on our website.
