Our shelter is located at:
213 E. William Thomason Byway

The shelter is open daily from 8:00AM to 12:00PM (Central Time Zone).  Please contact us for an appointment if these times aren't suited to your schedule.



Our sweet Clem, formerly known as one of the Kadiddlehoppers when his brother Carney was with him, has been with us so long that he probably doesn’t remember much before the shelter.  The boys came to us when they were about 10 months old.  So,  Clem is truly a “shelter dog” and comes with some of the quirks and foibles that entails.  He has shared kennels with other dogs, but has gradually retreated from even that interaction.  He is afraid of everything because he doesn’t understand any of it.  When his kennel is opened, he runs out, uses the bathroom and runs right back inside where his world pretty much consists of an igloo house, a water bucket, a kuranda bed, a food bowl, and sometimes, a chew bone.  He is so easy to care for that he is easily overlooked by all of us.  I always try to remember to call him to me and pat him and talk to him on the days I work, but with so many demands, I don’t always remember.  Sometimes, I even forget to shut the gate to his run for a while and when I do remember, I always find him in his house, waiting for me to close him in and shut out all the scary things out in the world.  Surely, he deserves more than this life of solitude, fear and incarceration. 

     Having said all of this, we do not want to give the impression that getting Clem back to a normal dog existence will be easy.  It will be very difficult and require someone with infinite patience, who is not easily discouraged when he “acts out” or cowers from fear.  On a happy note, his brother Carney, who was very much like Clem, has finally learned how to lead a happy life of leisure with some kind people who have worked with him for quite some time.  So, we just hope the same miracle can happen for Clem.   I think that person is out there for Clem.  I still have hope, because when I leave the shelter for the day and go to Clem’s run, and find him in his house and open the gate and call him to me,  he always comes for a kind word, a head pat and a kiss.   There is still a “real” dog in there waiting for the right person to reclaim him.

About Grayson County Humane Society

About Our Shelter...

The Grayson County Humane Society is a small group of volunteers who are working to change our local animal shelter from a high-kill, low adoption facility to a Low- or no-kill facility with a high rescue/adoption/reclaimation rate. We have been fairly successful in our mission of rescue but need to increase adoption to end euthanasia due to shelter over crowding. We also transport owned pets to the lowest cost spay/neuter we can find and offer pet care and spay neuter information to our area residents.

Come Meet Our Pets...

The shelter is open on Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 7:30AM to 1:30PM (Central Time Zone). Please contact us for an appointment if these times aren't suited to your schedule.

If you need directions to the shelter, please call us at 270-230-8839.

Our Adoption Process...

If you see a pet that you're interested in adopting, you can apply on our website or you can email the shelter volunteers at dwhite@aggressiveonline.net or call 270-230-8839 to request that an adoption application be emailed or sent via regular mail to you. We do allow out-of-state adoptions, but a home visit and references are required. You can bring your completed application with you when you visit the shelter or you can submit it via email or regular mail.

All animals adopted from us will be altered before placement and will receive their vaccinations and worming. Our adoption fees are:
** Cats and Kittens $55
** Adult Dogs $85
** Puppies $100

We welcome rescues to look at our residents and will convey to no-kill organizations. You must sign an agreement to return the animal to us if there is any reason you will not be keeping the pet.
