*Please note: Since we are an all volunteer group without a physical location, you will need to leave us a message and we will return your call.  

*It is often faster to email us. Sometimes our emails will go to your spam folder, so please be sure to check it if you don't see a response from us.  It is easiest if you include a phone number so we can call you if emails are not going through.


If you are interested in volunteering, we can better accommodate you (especially if you are part of a group) if we have advance notice.  

You can find our volunteer application here: 


If you are interested in adopting one of our animals the first step in our application process is filling out our application, located here:

Filling out the application does not obligate you to adopt but it does allow us to screen applicants before asking our volunteers to meet them.  If you have questions about a specific animal please feel free to e-mail our coordinators directly:



Other Inquiries

Donations, share stories of your adopted pet, or report cases of abuse:

We are not able to investigate abuse/neglect cases ourselves but we can put you in touch with the proper authorities.

Please Note: RCHS is not affiliated with the T. Russell Reitz Regional Animal Shelter. You can find their contact information here.  RCHS is not licensed to accept strays so please contact T. Russell Reitz regarding them.
