To advocate for animals that reside within Marion County through community involvement, awareness, rehoming, and education (C.A.R.E)

Most of our animals come from a bad past which may include abuse, neglect, and/or abandonment. This is why we are so particular about who our animals go home with. If you would like to adopt a companion animal, one that will be part of your family, please come and visit us.

          If you are interested in adopting a pet, come and meet the animals. Decide which animal may be right for your family, then fill out a pre-adoption application. All bully breed type dogs require a home visit prior to adoption.


          Persons dropping a pet at the shelter must pay a surrender fee of $30.00 and show proof of shots.

          For us to continue helping the animals in our county we need volunteers, donations, and support from the community. If you feel that you could help our shelter in any way, please feel free to call.

          The large amount of animals coming into our shelter is a good enough reason to remind everyone of the importance of spaying and neutering your pet. We are in desperate need of new members. Our member numbers have dwindled lately and we are hoping for new ideas. This is a great way to add some extra curricular activities to your life and the animals would love to have you! We are, also, always in need of dependable volunteers to perform the necessary chores of animal care. Call us for details at (304)366-5391 or e-mail us at if you're interested in becoming a volunteer.
