Welcome to PetsToGo

Founded in 2009, Pets To Go is a non-profit and Springfield’s only no-kill animal shelter. Since it’s opening Pets to Go has placed an estimated 18,000 homeless cats and dogs in new households. Pet’s To Go works in conjunction with the Animal Rescue League location services to locate the original owners of lost pets as well as finding new homes for abandoned animals. Pet’s To Go is relies on donations from United way, private donations, and volunteers to operate this facility.

About Us


We have a dedicated staff of 15 (half are part-time). And our 200-plus volunteers are our backbone (thank you volunteers and donors!). Many of the rescued animals who come to Pets to Go get more love and attention in our shelter than they’ve ever known before. Our shelter continues to grow and improve. Drop by and get to know us better!

Snowball and Sally

If you’re looking to bring some love and joy into your home, look no further than these two girls. They’re 6-month-old rescues—amazingly sweet and loving. They’re affectionate (big-time purrers and cuddlers), playful, and endlessly entertaining. They are also healthy, have had their shots, have been spayed, and are litterbox trained. Because they’ve bonded to each other, we’d like to keep them together.
