Animal Humane Services

Satchel’s Last Resort is a no-kill animal shelter/sanctuary whose mission is to Rescue, rehab and Re-home dogs and cats with nowhere else to go because of breed, behavior or medical issues. We are housed on 12 acres-two large play yards in the front of the building and a large area behind our building and a large area behind our building where volunteers can walk the dogs.

Family Services

Turning Points provides a remarkable variety of free services designed to assist individuals and families on their path to financial stability and independence. Turning Points is the one stop shop for preventing and ending homelessness in our community. They provide day resource services, employment services, rental and utility assistance, veteran services and free medical/dental care for the uninsured and underinsured.
