Adopting a friend

Please stop by and check out our dogs and cats. We often have lots of puppies and kittens, and older dogs and cats with wonderful temperaments. Our staff can assist you with locating the perfect pet for you!

When you adopt a pet from the Buchanan County Animal Shelter, there is a small fee of $30 for dogs and $20 for cats. This includes a spay/neuter.

Why is it important to spay or neuter your pet? Think that if your pet is male it's not as important? Check out the info available at to see the truth.

Having your pets spayed or neutered helps in many different ways such as the following:
  • wandering
  • not having unwanted litters of cats or dogs
  • having less chance of disease

    We will work with rescue groups willing to pull animals from our shelter. All we ask for is proof that you are a non-profit organization and that you have never been convicted of animal cruelty.
