Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
Currently we have discounted our prices to reduce our animals at the shelter.

CATS: Female- $40 Male- $30
Hours of Operation:
Monday - Saturday: Noon - 6:00pm
Sunday: Noon - 3:00pm
Please keep in mind that adoptions stop about 30 minutes before closing.
Important topics might be how high your fencing is (containment) and how much time the animal would spend with you. We believe that animals should spend a good bit of time with you and your family.
If everyone agrees that your site and situation are suitable for the animal, you read and sign a document relating to the ethical treatment of animals.
If the animal is already spayed or neutered, it may go home with you immediately. If, however, the animal needs to be spayed or neutered, the staff makes an appointment with a participating veterinarian and the animal can go home as soon as it has had the operation.
Adoption fees are as follow:
Dogs are $76.00, which includes spaying or neutering, first set of shots, worming and rabies shot if the animal is old enough.
Cats or kittens are $61.00, which includes spaying or neutering, first set of shots, worming, and rabies shot if the animal is old enough.
Licenses - $3.00 for Kanawha County and $3.00 for City of Charleston, if applicable.
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.
