Who We Are

We are a small Animal Shelter located in Roane County, West Virginia. We are not completely county funded and depend on donations and adoption fees for money to feed and care for the animals.

Unfortunately, we are not a no-kill shelter, but we do make every effort to find our animals good homes and reputable rescues. YOU can help, please stop in to see us, you may find your best friend! Also, Please encourage everyone you know to spay and neuter their pets-it is the only way to stop the flow of unwanted animals into shelters across the country.

Where are we located?

We are on Route 14 near Spencer, WV -- 1 hour NE of Charleston WV, 2 hours South of Wheeling WV, 2 hours South of Cambridge OH and 2 1/2 hours SW of Morgantown WV.
