About Us

Adopting A Friend

There are so many innocent and unwanted animals that need a good loving home. 

The adoption fee for our dogs and puppies is $75.00. This includes the cost of the spay or neuter, the first rabies vaccination, and the first distemper/parvo vaccination.

The adoption fee for our cats and kittens is $75.00. This includes the cost of the spay or neuter, the first rabies vaccination, and the first distemper/upper respiratory combo vaccination.

Occassionally, we have other pets for adoption as well, such as hamsters, guinea pigs, rabbits, chickens, ferrets, etc. Please check for availability of these animals.

All cats and dogs are spayed or neutered --NO EXCEPTIONS!!

Who We Are

We are the county operated animal shelter that provides animal control services and adoptions for Alexander County. We receive approximatey 2,000 animals per year. We provide care for stray and unwanted animals, and try to place these animals with loving homes or return them to their owners.

If an animal enters the shelter with identification such as a rabies tag, microchip or tattoo, the staff takes many steps and much effort to locate the owner. Due to staff liability with pet misidentification, it is imperative that pet owners visit our shelter during business hours and actively look for their lost pets within our kennels. It also helps, if the owner can bring a picture to leave with the shelter staff so that they can help continue to watch for the lost pet.
