Pets at Our Shelter:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We take in pets from Ritchie County. We adopt to families from surrounding cities, counties, and states.

About Our Shelter:

Our shelter is staffed by only 2 employees so we greatly depend on volunteers to help care for our animals.
We work very closely with rescue groups to help move our dogs out of the shelter quickly. Our goal is to never have to euthanize for space. We cannot do that without rescue assistance because our adoption rates are very low.

Come Meet our Pets:

Our hours are Monday-Saturday 10 AM - 3 PM and Sunday 10 AM - 12 PM.

Our Adoption Process:

Our adoption process is fairly straight forward. We will need you to email us for an adoption application. Once the application is submitted and approved you are able to adopt.
For a spayed/neutered dog the cost is $75 (This cost could be more depending on the money we have invested in the dog.)
For an non spayed/neutered dog the cost is $25 plus a $50 refundable deposit. The deposit is refunded if your dog is altered within 30 days. (Per WV law, all animals adopted from a shelter must be altered within 30 days.)
For a spayed/neutered cat the cost is $20.
For an non spayed/neutered cat the cost is $10.

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.
