The shelter is open to the public Mon-Tue-Thu-Fri from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Sat from 10:00 a.m. to noon. We make every effort to accomodate our adopters and can schedule an appointment after regular hours. Our goal is to find qualified forever homes for all our animals.

Our Adoption Process:

Fees are as follows:
DOG: $75.00
CAT: $65.00

For Ohio County residents, the fee includes health check at a local veterinarian and spay/neuter surgery. All other veterinary costs are the responsibility of the adopter. For non-residents, the fee is reimbursed to your veterinarian upon proof of spay/neuter. Any other costs are the responsibility of the adopter. Out-of state adopters are welcome, but must submit a veterinarian reference. Special-needs animals will be adopted to homes which have passed a pre-adoption interview and home visit.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
