Ayres Memorial Animal Shelter

Our Pet List

Our Featured Pet...


HUNTER is a 5 to 7 year old tricolor neutered male Coonhound, 52 lbs. He was found on Route 80, Town of Minden and came to the shelter in February 2016. He's great with most dogs and doesn't seem to mind cats. Fine with older kids. He loves his toys and running free in the shelter yard. Hunter likes lying in the sun, checking out the water or chasing a ball. He and Luke are good together.

We have a Shelter Shop right next to the shelter. It's a gift/thrift shop, with something for everyone: toys, jewelry, glassware, books, etc. The shop is open during regular shelter hours, Tues. - Sat. 12 to 5, Wed. 12 to 7. All of the proceeds go to our Emergency Medical Fund for the animals. Please help us help them, and find a bargain for yourself at the same time!

Adopting a friend

All of our animals are given a rabies vaccine upon entering the shelter. The animals then are wormed, treated for parasites, and receive vaccines and treatment as necessary. If an animal exhibits anti-social behavior from a past abuse, it is worked with by staff and volunteers until it becomes adoptable. Volunteers are very important and help not only at the shelter, but with our many fund raising activities, our newsletter, memberships, etc. We must keep cages open for our contract holders, but when space is available, we take in unwanted pets from private individuals. If we are full, we will help individuals find other sources or put them on a waiting list. This is now our policy rather than euthanizing because of overpopulation.

Dogs - $100
Cats - $50
Puppies - $70 plus $35 Mandatory Spay/Neuter Deposit
Kittens - $15 plus $35 Mandatory Spay/Neuter Deposit
