Enoch City Animal Shelter
Our Featured Pet...
IT'S KITTEN SEASON, which means that it's especially important to focus on spay/neuter. If all of the kittens born during this season AND their moms and dads get fixed now, we'll see an exponential decrease in the number of kittens born later in the year.
Often, well-meaning families intend to spay or neuter their kittens, but wait too long and their kitten--who's still a baby her or himself--is pregnant or has made another cat pregnant.
Some facts to consider:
A kitten as young as four months can get pregnant --and can even get pregnant by her four-month-old brother.
Kittens can be safely spayed or neutered at four months. In fact, a two month old kitten can be spayed or neutered as long as they're 2 lbs!
Young kittens recover from surgery more quickly than do older kittens and adult cats. A cat or kitten can be safely spayed even if she is pregnant.
Please remember the older pets when you're looking for an animal with which to share your life. Love knows no boundries, and love has no age limits. Thanks!
Even I have succombed to the sweet faces and personalities of the animals at the Enoch Shelter. Follow along as I update the life of Ralphie, the cat that will never grow, at www.ralphiecat.blogspot.com. He truly is my pride and joy!
SHELTER NOW OPEN FOR ADOPTIONS!
We are open and staffed 7 days a week! Adoptions are very important to the success of our shelter. We are staffed every morning from 9:00am until 1:00pm. We are also available every evening at approx 07:30pm. If these hours are not convenient please call 435-559-3885 and set up an appointment.
Enoch Shelter was once a high-kill shelter due to volume and lack of space. Now, because of the volunteer efforts and the local rescue groups, euthanasia rates are almost non-existent.
Who We Are
• Enoch Shelter is a City run facility that accepts stray and owner release dogs and cats.
• There is a $100.00 drop off fee for owner surrenders.
• There are a wide variety of pets available for adoption, including puppies & kittens.
• If you are looking for a specific breed, please call Chris at (435) 559-3885.
We really could use someone with the space and time to socialize and play with the kitties. It is important that they are used to being in a loving environment so that they can easily adapt to their forever home when the time comes. If you are interested in fostering and helping to save a life please give us a call at 435-559-3885 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If there is a specific type of dog or cat that you are looking for, let us know and we will add you to our wish list.
We are also always in need of bedding and linens. Thanks for any support or help you may offer.
