Mercer County Animal Control

Our Pet List



We have currently opened up a building fund to help kick off our plans of constructing a larger more efficient facility that can house the unwanted pets in our county until they can be re-homed. Pleae feel free to come out and visit from 9am to 12pm Mon-Fri (closed on holidays) and Mon-Fri pm by appointment we have limited staff at times we must go out on animal control calls and may not be here therefore it may be in the best interest to call before visiting if you are traveling. Thank you NEW PETS ARRIVE DAILY!!!!!!!!!!!

Who We Are

The Mercer County Animal control is a non-profit organization, County run organization. We are supported entirely by donations and a small fee charged to the towns of Mercer County to pick up and care for unwanted, stray, and abandoned animals and registration fees. We are a open admission Shelter .That is a county operation . With limited kennel space... We have 6 inside outside runs and 3 extra inside runs in the back for isolation for dogs and 6 available spaces for cats. With that said we hold a wonderful record of not having to euth any adoptable animal that has come through our doors for 6 years now!!! We rotate a large amount of animals a month through our small doors each and everyone becoming part of our hearts.
