On November 20, 2017, Jelly's Place animal shelter had its official grand opening and ribbon cutting with city officials.
We celebrated a grand opening with the community on November 18, and were blessed and grateful for so much support. 

Meet the rescuers who work hard to save lives from the meat trade in China, the dogs and cats, and the wonderful adopters who gave them a second chance at happiness.
