Adoption fee for dogs is $150, for kittens is $85, and adult cats $55 or two for $85. This covers the cost of spay/neuter, first round of shots, fleabath, earmite treatment and worming. Depending on the veterinarian used, some additional fees may apply. Some local vets charge an anesthesia fee or co-pay as well (fees vary by vet) which is paid to the vet at the time you pick up your pet following surgery.

Who We Are

We are a non-profit animal shelter located on Saltwell Road, Shinnston, WV. Exit 125 off of I-79.

Map to our shelter

We operate totally off of donations and contributions from our community. All of our fundraisers benefit the homeless and unwanted animals in our loving care. Once an animal is housed in our shelter, we gently erase all "bad memories" and get them ready for a loving home. We also provide a Spay/Neuter program for Harrison County

The Humane Society of Harrison County is a separate entity from the Harrison County Animal Control Center, which is also located on Saltwell Road, Shinnston, WV. Our mission is to rescue as many animals as possible left at the Animal Control Center and to get the animals ready for adoption into loving, forever homes. Our goal is to be able to save and house as many animals as possible before they are euthanized at the Animal Control Center.

Adopting a friend

Out of State adopters are also required to get a health certificate from the veterinarian for transporting(Average cost is $20). This is due to a policy at the animal control center from which the dogs are pulled. The Humane Society of Harrison County has no control over that policy.

Come Visit Us!

We are open 7 days a week from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.
