About Wetzel County Animal Shelter

About Our Shelter...

Our mission is short and sweet. We provide a safe humane atmosphere for the unwanted and homeless dogs and cats of the community and try to place them in loving "forever" homes. The Wetzel County Animal Shelter has been around for approx 17yrs although it has gone through significant changes in the last 5yrs. Our shelter has 10 cat cages and 11 Outside Kennels for dogs. We also have an isolation room for smaller animals. Please understand that we are the county shelter and operate as County Budget and State Code regulate. Unfortunately, this limits the number of animals we can take in and the amount of time they have at the shelter. Euthanasia is sometimes the result.

If you have any questions about the pet, you can Email or call us and we will respond promptly. We also have a petfinder site @ If you do not find the pet you are looking for, you can keep your application on file with a description of what you are looking for, and we will contact you when and if that animal becomes available. Fees as follows. Altered cats $10 plus medical costs incurred by shelter. Altered dogs $175 for Males, and $200 for Females; this covers the medical costs incurred by shelter.
