Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:
We serve the city of New Martinsville and the County of Wetzel only.
The Wetzel County Animal Shelter has been around for approx 17yrs although it has gone through significant changes in the last 5yrs. Our shelter has 10 cat cages and 11 Outside Kennels for dogs. Please understand that we are the county shelter and operate as County Budget and State Code regulate. Unfortunately, this limits the number of animals we can take in and the amount of time they have at the shelter. Euthanasia is sometimes the result.
Come Meet our Pets:
We also have an isolation room for smaller animals. Because of Restricted space, we cannot take all owned animals; however we do run a waiting list for owned dogs. We also run a waiting list for cats. Cats are not routinely euthanized at the shelter so our list can and does get lengthy at times. Most people like the idea of cats not getting put to sleep.
Our Adoption Process:
To adopt, you need to fill out the application and get it to us ASAP. We then check your references to make sure the right home and the right family is matched and contact you. When you adopt, you must then sign a contract waiving the shelter of liability and agreeing to humanely care for the pet the rest of it's life (conditions are defined.) and to have it altered by a set date if the animal is not already altered. If you have any questions about the pet, you can E mail or call us and we will respond promptly. We also have a petfinder site @ www.wetzelpets.petfinder.com If you do not find the pet you are looking for, you can keep your application on file with a description of what you are looking for, and we will contact you when and if that animal becomes available. Fees as follows. Altered cats $10 plus medical costs incurred by shelter. Altered dogs $175 for Males, and $200 for Females; this covers the medical costs incurred by shelter. #3 Our mission is short and sweet. We provide a safe humane atmosphere for the unwanted and homeless dogs and cats of the community and try to place them in loving "forever" homes.
