Pets at Our Shelter:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:Serving the entire McLean County Area; Calhoun, Livermore, Sacramento, Island, Beech Grove, Rumsey, etc. We are located in Western Kentucky, approx. 25 miles outside of Owensboro.
We are very rescue friendly!
If you see an animal you are interested in act quickly! We are a very small county ran shelter and simply cannot hold animals for extended periods of time due to space and budget constraints!
About Our Shelter:We are 2 people working out of a county operated animal shelter. We strive to rescue as many 4-legged furry lives as possible. This usually entails frequent off the clock road trips and numerous visits to the vets! All animals at our shelter are suppose to be euthanized after 5 days, but we foster the majority of them at our homes until rescue arrangements can be made. It's a very difficult job, considering that the county is on our "tails" constantly about why we don't euthanize as often as they'd like, but we wouldn't consider having anyone else do this job in our place! Unfortunately, we do have to euthanize animals, but at least the innocent angels knew, for a little while, that not all humans are bad and that someone truly did love them!
Come Meet our Pets:We are working on having adopt-a-thons, but to date none are scheduled. Check back regularly for updates!
Visit our website, www.mcleanac.petfinder.com for photos of available animals!
Our Adoption Process:Our adoption fees cover the spay/neuter surgery and rabies vaccination. These prices range from $45 - $85. All animals must be altered prior to leaving the shelter if you are an out-of-area adopter. Any pure bred animal must be altered prior to adoption no matter your location. ((Rescues, we will alter the animal so long as payment arrangements are arranged. Transportation arrangements can be made if your group is within a few hours' drive. Otherwise, transportation arrangements are up to the rescue group.))
ATTN: Please contact us via email. We cannot reply back to all incoming mail, but we will do our very best. Phone calls will not be returned unless you have a (270) area code. Also, if you are out of state, please note our location.
