Paws to Recycle
Remember to recycle your cans for donation at the Marshall County Animal Shelter for their "Paws to Recycle" program. Cans may be dropped off at any time in a bin by the front door of the shelter.
Marshall County was the only West Virginia Shelter invited to attend the Pets for Life Training sponsored by the Humane Society of the United States and Science Diet Pet Food. Formed in 1977, the Marshall County Animal Rescue has earned two National Awards. We were selected by the Humane Society of the United States as the national Humane Education Achievement Award winners, and recognized nationally by Paws to Recycle Programs in the "Most Community Support" category.
Who We Are
The Marshall County Animal Rescue League consists of a small group of dedicated individuals who through enthusiasm and commitment have turned an "unsheltered" county into a county that has an outstanding shelter program. Our Humane Society is contracted by the Marshall County Commission to oversee animal shelter operations. We work continually to provide progressive programs for the betterment of the shelter and the animals. The Marshall County Animal Rescue League meets on the 3rd Monday of each month at 7:30 p.m. in the Commission Room of the Marshall County Court House located on 7th street in Moundsville. Please join us.
Adopting a friend
We require that all interested individuals complete an adoption application. Completion of the application helps us to ensure the "right match" for your satisfaction and for the happiness of the animal. Click HERE for an adoption application form.
Dogs and puppies - $100.00
Cats and kittens - $85.00
We accept cash or checks.
Quality adoptions are made possible by providing all vaccinations, worming, and Revolution to both cats and dogs. Testing for feline leukemia and canine heartworm is also done before adoption. Rabies vaccination is given to animals that are 6 months of age or older. EVERY animal is spayed or neutered before leaving the shelter.
Shelter Wish List
VOLUNTEERS, foster homes, liquid laundry detergent, bleach, towels, blankets, pet toys, cat entertainment, anti-bacterial soaps, copy paper, envelopes, postage stamps, newspapers, aluminum cans, latex gloves, canned cat food, collars, leads, brushes, grooming aids, and individuals who will walk dogs on the walking trail.
Open Door, Open Arms Policy
A primary goal of the shelter is to work with individuals to find solutions to pet problems. We take all unwanted pets to prevent cruelty that might result from being "dumped" or placed hastily in the hands of an irresponsible person. Persons who find it necessary to surrender their pets are asked, when possible, to vaccinate for kennel cough at least one week before bringing them to the shelter. Any pet that has been adopted and does not work out in the new home should be returned to the Marshall County Animal shelter. We feel responsibility for the pets well-being and your satisfaction.
Individuals who bring animals from other counties are asked to pay an out of county fee of $10.00 per animal. Any individual who brings cats or kittens to the shelter will be asked to make a donation. Cats and kittens are not supported by tax dollars and therefore are the sole responsibility of the humane society.
We are open six days per week. The shelter is not open on Wednesday.
Shelter hours Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday through Saturday are 11:00 to 4:00 and Sunday from 11:00 to 3:00
From West Virginia Route 2 turn East onto 12th street. Travel for approximately 1.5 miles. The shelter is located on the left immediately preceding the fork in the road.
