Our mission is to pull animals that were strays or owner surrenders from the Harrison County Animal Control (WV) and make them adoptable to the public. We provide veterinary services such as vaccinations as well as spaying or neutering, and then try to pair them with the best potential adopters. We are not county funded, and so rely on our generous supporters and donors to help provide the care and basic necessities of our furry friends.
We also operate a thrift store and all proceeds benefit the shelter. Visit, buy, or donate at 220 Milford Street Clarksburg, WV. They are open Mon-Fri 11am-4pm and Sat 10am-2pm.
