Braxton County Animal Shelter is a County Run Shelter and NOT A NO KILL Shelter. We need all the help we can get to save as many as we can. Most only have a short time with us. We are a small shelter only having 22 runs. The problem with this is, we average 80 dogs a month. We do have special cases that we will keep a dog longer but the average time spent in the shelter is only 15 days! So please if your thinking about adopting a pet please see your shelter or our shelter first!You will be saving a life.
