not allowed to go above that and need to keep a few kennels open for

We need local VOLUNTEERS! If you would like to volunteer
in ANY way, please contact
us. We need local and virtual (long distance) help!
We are a high intake county shelter and need
rescue help! We are NOT a
no-kill shelter. Our county commission limits us to 40 dogs and 36 cats max!
Without LOTS of rescue help and adoptions, it will be IMPOSSIBLE for us to
maintain the population at this level without
euthanizing.we now have a new policy an animals have a time limit tostay in the shelter an it is 3 weeks
Surrendering an animal: Please visit the shelter
during operating hours and speak to Betty, the shelter director, to surrender an
animal. There is $10.00 fee to surrender. Please DO NOT leave animals unattended
outside after business hours. We've had animals get lost, killed by vehicles, or
hang themselves on leashes that were tied to the fence. PLEASE bring your
animals in during our business hours 12;00pm -4;00pm mon -fri . Residents, if you need to surrender
an animal, we also STRONGLY SUGGEST that you reach out to rescues and no-kill
shelters via Petfinder for assistance in
rehoming your pet. Rescues typically keep animals in foster homes rather than a
shelter environment. This is a healthier environment and much less stressful for
your pet than going into a crowded, noisy shelter.
