We are the ONLY shelter in Madison County, but have many adopters come from surrounding counties also.
We are located in a very remote and low-incomed, rural county. For some ten years a small group of us attempted to raise the funds to erect a building (MANY thought it would never happen!). Finally ten years ago it came about! Our shelter is small and run by the same AMAZING manager we hired at the start! She has two part-time employees. We only can house comfortably about 30-40 dogs and cats, although often we have quite a few more. We are SLOWLY gaining the support and respect of our community, and seeing SOME change in attitude concerning spaying and neutering. We REALLY need all the help we can get!!!!!!
Come Meet our Pets:
We currently (weather permitting) take dogs twice a month to a store parking lot to publicize our shelter, seek donations, enlist volunteers and most of all, hopefully find homes for available dogs. We normally advertise this on our Facebook page right before each event, since it is dependent on suitable weather.
Our Adoption Process:
The fee for adopting a dog or cat is $65 and includes spay or neuter voucher and shots. Seniors (60+) may adopt for $35.
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.
