Safe Place for Pets is celebrating 21 years!

For 21 years we've been helping the pets of the terminally ill find new loving homes and families to call their own. We have touched a lot of lives in our 21 years, both human and animal. SP4P thanks all of our past and present volunteers, supporters, pet partners, and donors. Without you, none of what we do would be possible. We are grateful for you.
