My story

VOLUNTEERSARF needs transport drivers who can do legs between WV and New England!

Beautiful 10-year-old Gertie weigh's about 45lbs and doesn't she have the most amazing smile?! Gertie's love for humans cannot be overstated! She loves all people and will be your most loyal friend. Gertie walks great on a leash (watch out for the Goose Poo, she loves to roll in it, Lol). She likes to hang out with low key dogs in the yard, not dogs that are in her face wanting to play. Happy tail wags are her calling card, along with a smile a mile wide.  Snuggles are yours for the keeping if Gertie lives at your house.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

All potential adopters should meet dogs/cats wanted for adoption. No animals will leave the shelter without being spayed/neutered, including those going to rescue. You are asked to fill out an adoption application which will be reviewed by the director of the shelter (a vet reference is needed). If approved the shelter staff will contact you and schedule an appointment with our vet to have the animal altered. The adoption fee is paid and the adoption contract signed before the scheduled surgery date. The process can be as soon as the following day or as long as a week depending on the vet's schedule. The adoption fee depends on the age, sex, if they fixed, etc. ranging from $5.00 to $75.00 If you have any questions regarding the process, please contact us via this link:

More about this shelter

Our mission is to promote humane treatment to all animals and to prevent cruelty to animals by investigating and resolving all complaints made by the public. We strive to adopt animals to forever loving homes, reunite animals to their rightful owners and inform the public about the lifelong commitment needed for our four-legged companions. The Jackson County Animal Shelter will also provide a sanctuary for the unwanted, lost, orphaned and neglected. We will make every effort to educate the public about pet over-population and the importance of spaying and neutering their animals.
