We have chosen Kuranda dog beds for our boarding facilities because they are so good for our dogs. We still don't have enough for all of our kennels. If you would like to donate a bed so another dog can sleep in proper comfort, please click here.
We are open to the public for adoptions Monday - Friday from 11 to 6. We are also open on Saturday from 10 to 3. If you have any questions about any of these animals, please contact us at (828) 465-8228
Who We Are
We are the county operated animal shelter that provides animal control services for Catawba County residents. We receive approximately 7,000 animals per year. We provide care for stray and unwanted animals.
Our animal control officers and kennel staff are dedicated to being the voice of those who can't speak for themselves. We strive to give the animals in our shelter the best possible care that we can while they are here.
