Bluffton Animal Shelter
The National Adopt a Shelter Cat month is in June and Adopt a Shelter dog month is in October. In recognition of this the Bluffton Animal Shelter has 1/2 off adoption fees during this time.
Who We Are
The Bluffton-Wells Co. Animal Shelter is a joint venture of the City of Bluffton and Wells County. The shelter has three full time employees and is open Monday through Friday. The mission of the Bluffton-Wells Animal Shelter is to ensure public health and safety, prevent overpopulation, animal neglect and animal cruelty through education, rescue, law enforcement and pet adoption. The Bluffton-Wells Co. Animal Shelter can only accept pets from Wells County.
The Bluffton-Wells Co. Animal Shelter receives pets from:
* animals running at large
* stray and unwanted animals
* relatives when an owner has passed away
* owners who can no longer care for their pets
* pick-up of injured or dead animals within the city limits
When animals are taken in, they rarely have a medical history. If there is one available that indicates medical aid or veterinary care has been given; this information is passed on to the new owner. The Animal Shelter cannot guarantee the health or temperament of an animal adopted from the Shelter.
Pets sometimes get loose and run away, often ending up in animal shelters. Pet owners may tire of an animal or for whatever reason, canít house it anymore and they bring it to a shelter. These animals await adoption in cages where they compete for the homes and hearts of potential pet owners. Many homes are without pets and would benefit from the positive effects that an animal brings. Save an animalís life while brightening your own: adopt a pet from an animal shelter.

Assistance for low-income pet owners with emergency medical for pets

Our dogs and cats love to sleep on Kuranda beds, but we don't have enough for everyone. If you would like to donate a bed at a special wholesale price for a another dog or cat to sleep in comfort, please donate a Kuranda bed.
