About Us


Welcome to our page!  Please browse through our list of adoptable animals and email or call us if you have any questions.

This site is updated by volunteers and we try to update our animal list at least once a week.  However, it's harder to keep up with the cats so if you are interested in a cat please call the shelter. (304)643-4721.

We are always happy to hear from rescue groups.  If you are a group interested in saving some of our animals please email us at rchumane@zoominternet.net and Heather will be happy to help you.

Adopting A Friend

Adopting a pet is a simple and inexpensive process at our shelter.  You must fill out a short adoption form and then pay a small adoption fee.  Part of the adoption paperwork is promising to get your pet spayed or neutered if not already done.  

Adoption Fees are as follows:


  • Dog - spayed or neutered = $125
  • Dog - non-spayed or neutered = $125
  • Cat - spayed or neutered pet = $30
  • Cat - non-spayed or neutered pet = $10

(These fees are subject to change without notice.)

Please email us at rchumane@zoominternet.net for an application.  Thanks!
