We only accept dogs from Todd, Christian and Trigg County. We can take cats from Caldwell County but dogs must be taken to the facility there.

Adoption fees are $49.00 for puppies/dogs and $44.00 for kittens/cats.
If the animal is spayed or neutered the fees are reduced.

Business Hours:
Tuesday through Saturday: 10:30 a.m. 4:00 p.m.

Closed to the public on Sunday and Monday. Drop offs can only be accepted during business hours so that information may be gathered about the pets.

Any animal brought to the Christian County Animal Shelter that was released by the owner to an Animal Control Officer will be held by the Christian County Animal Shelter for 24 hours before a final disposition is determined.

Per KRS 258.215 all stray animals are held 5 days before final disposition is determined.
Shelter Needs: We are always in need of kitten chow, cat litter, puppy chow and soft foods for dogs and cats.
Foster Homes: If you can open your home to an animal in need, please call the shelter for more information.
Transport Help: We are continually looking for transport help. If you can help please call the shelter or email us.
Do you have old cloths, blankets or placemats that are washable? Our animal friends would love to use them! Donations of these ideas may be made during business hours.
