Rescue Groups

This shelter is very rescue friendly!

If you have not worked with us previously, we require the following information: vet reference(s), brief statement about spay/neuter policies, and list at least one other shelter that you have worked with and their contact person. Please contact our shelter liaison at: clarkanimal@bellsouth.net if you are a rescue interested in any of our animals.

Who We Are

The Clark County Animal Shelter is a non-profit organization that is supported by Clark County, Donations and Volunteers. We accept all stray and unwanted animals in Clark County. We also perform all neglect and abuse investigations for Clark County. We are striving to lower the number of unwanted and abandoned animals in Clark County. We are also striving to eliminate the unnecessary euthanasia of dogs and cats, we require all animals adopted from the Clark County Animal Shelter to be Spayed or Neutered before going to their new home.

THE CLARK COUNTY ANIMAL SHELTER IS COUNTY OPERATED AND WE ARE NOT A RESCUE FACILITY. WE STRIVE TO ADOPT OUR ANIMALS. WE ALSO WORK WITH SOME RESCUES TO HELP OUR ANIMALS FIND HOMES THAT WOULD OTHERWISE BE EUTHANIZED. UNFORTUNATELY, WITH ALL OUR EFFORTS SOME ANIMALS NEVER FIND A HOME.

How You Can Help

Clark County Animal Shelter can always use your help! Monetary donations are always appreciated and can be made quickly and safely using our PayPal button. All donations are used to provide medical care for needy, ill, or injured animals, buy life saving vaccines, or equipment that will improve animal conditions and housing.

Adopting a friend

Adding a pet to a family is a decision that should be made responsibly and with much forethought—we consider this to be a lifetime decision for you new pet. We ask you consider your adoption will be a 10 to 15 year commitment. You must be prepared to keep your dog if you move or if your family grows, and if the animal gets ill or needs surgery you must be prepared for the expense. You must also be prepared and willing to work with your new pet while it adjusts to your home. It takes a lot of time, understanding, patience and love to adjust in its new home and family. Our staff is knowledgeable and available to assist anyone wishing to adopt a pet. We encourage people to visit the Shelter and spend time with any animal they might have an interest in.
