The Good Shepherd Animal Shelter provides a temporary home for the homeless companion animals of Carroll County, Arkansas while searching for permanent, caring homes. We also operate a reduced fee spay clinic for Carroll County residents.
The Good Shepherd Humane Society has been in operation since 1974 as a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to caring for the homeless animals of Carroll County. Our 9 Board of Directors serve 2 year terms without compensation and are up for re-election every two years. We currently have about 350 Society members.
Come Meet our Pets:
We are located just one mile east of Eureka Springs and are open to the public everyday except Wednesdays, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Day from 12 Noon to 5 PM. We provide leashes for dogs and carrying boxes for cats as well as transition food for both dogs and cats.
Our Adoption Process:
Prospective adopters must meet certain criteria such as providing a suitable environment and ability to care for the animal. Adopters must enter into a contractual agreement that protects the animals interests. Adoption fees are Dogs: Puppies $85, all others $70. Cats: $50. All animals at shelter over 6 months are 1/2 the usual adoption fee. The adoption fee includes spay/neuter and all required immunizations. Please check back if you don't see what you are looking for as we get new ones just about everyday.
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.
