In accordance with WV Social Distancing Guidelines and the WV Mask Mandate, we are closed to public for volunteers and walk-ins. The Shelter is still scheduling intake and also facilitating adoptions for those with an approved application...by appointment.
Our current hours are as follows:

Please call during these hours with any questions, complaints, or requests to surrender animals.
Due to the volume of requests during kitten season, we must utilize a waiting list for those who wish to surrender or impound cats and/or kittens.
All cat/kitten impounds are as follows:
Cat Impound: $25 per cat
Litters with/without mother: $50
Pregnant Cat Impound: $25
Owner surrender fees for dogs: $50
These fees help with the cost of vaccinations/ dewormer / flea medicines and food & litter.
If you're interested in adopting or fostering, you may view our
available animals in the window below, powered by PetFinder.
Under, "Adoptions", you will find our cat and dog adoption applications. Once submitted, the application may take 3-5 business days to process. Applications that are thoroughly completed process much more quickly. Foster applications can be found under "More". These may also take 3-5 days to process. Applicants will be contacted by the shelter if approved.

We accept applications during the 5 day stray hold period. In the event that a dog
is not claimed by their original owner they will be available for adoption.
