The non-profit group, Advocates for Shelter Animals of Pocahontas Co,. WV, Inc, handles the out-of-area adoptions, rescue and transport coordination for the Pocahontas County Animal Shelter. We are the online presence for the shelter and we adopt anywhere a good home can be found and the pet transported to!
ASAP's mission is to promote, facilitate, and assist in the rescue, care, fostering and adoption of needy animals in and around Pocahontas County, particularly the impounded animals at the Pocahontas County Animal Shelter in Marlinton, WV.
Come Meet our Pets:
The shelter is open to the public Monday through Friday from 11:00 Am to 4:00 PM; Saturdays by appointment. Closed Sunday. Adoption events are announced on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Advocates-for-Shelter-Animals-of-Pocahontas-Co-WV/257761584333675
Our Adoption Process:
All pets must, at a minimum, be spayed or neutered and have a rabies vaccination prior to adoption. Pets being transported out of state will need a health certificate. An application is required and a home visit will be arranged before adoptions are finalized. Adoption costs vary and consist of vetting costs only; please email for specifics. http://www.petyourdog.com/dog_shelter/pocahontas_county_animal_shelter/23019
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.
