SOLAS was started in 1993 by Mary and Mike Jones and a small, hardworking group of volunteers. The purpose of the group is to assist in the care and placement of the animals from local shelters.  They are now a large network of volunteer foster homes who will work diligently for the health, happiness, socialization and general well-being for all animals.
Every animal that is adopted through SOLAS has been vaccinated, microchipped and spayed or neutered. They firmly believe it is part of responsible pet ownership to have your pet spayed or neutered. While still in their care, pets are altered so that no more irresponsible (or purposeful) breeding is done by that animal.
