About Our Shelter:This shelter was established in 2009. The Iron County Sheriff’s Office is proud to provide this service for the residents of Iron County who rely on the Iron County Government for their animal control needs.
The Iron County Animal Shelter is a “No Kill” shelter. We rely heavily on volunteers to help us find good homes for the animals that end up in our shelter. The Iron County Sheriff’s Office has partnered with Best Friends Animal Society, Pet Finder and several other animal rescues in the area to help us find good homes for animals that have been abandoned by their owners. We encourage animal owners to spay and neuter their pets so we can avoid dealing with the large numbers of stray and unwanted animals that end up in our shelter.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer for the Iron County Animal Shelter please call us at 435-867-7500 or use the volunteer information provided on this web page.

Our Adoption Process:We have a few requirements when adopting one of our pets. You MUST be over the age of 18 to adopt from Iron County Animal Shelter. You are REQUIRED to do the following within 30 days of adoption: spay or neuter your pet, vaccinate your pet against rabies, license your pet in the appropriate city or county of your residence.
We currently have a $25 adoption fee. Anyone renting or leasing must have written permission from their landlord before an adoption can be approved. Any restrictions regarding type or size of animal must be noted. We do allow you to take a pet home and try them out for a few days to see if they will work for you. Other conditions may appy.
