There are so many innocent and unwanted animals that need a good loving home. Our pets are available for adoption for a fee of $75.00 (cash only!), which covers a current rabies vaccination, and spaying or neutering of the pet. All pets are spayed or neutered PRIOR to being turned over to adoptive parents--NO EXCEPTIONS!!
The Alexander County Animal Care & Adoption Center is located one half mile
out of Taylorsville just off of Highway 16 North.
Our shelter hours are Monday, Wednesday, & Friday
