|We are a non-profit volunteer-based pet shop that carries shelter animals available for in-store adoption. |
We find homes for shelter animals in need, and the sales of merchandise in our pet shops go back to saving more shelter animals.
SHPS is part of the Shelter Hope Project, which strives to make this the business model for all pet shops. We hope to abolish all puppy-mill pet shops, help find homes for the countless pets in our shelters that face being euthanized, and educate the public on how we can ALL help reduce future shelter population.
Shelter Hope Pet Shop is a volunteer-run nonprofit. We rely on the community for assistance, donations and volunteers.

Kim notes, "By showing the public shelter animals at a mall behind a white picket fence we may be able to change the fate of the five million killed at America's shelters every year."
