There are days when Small Animal Control maybe closed due to sickness, vacation, etc.  Please Call in advance to assure Small Animal Control is open on the day you plan to go.



Volunteers will be having “Meet and Greets” at the shelter every Saturday from 9am until noon and on Thursday from 3pm until 6pm.  If you would like to check out some nice adoptable shelter animals, this is the perfect time.  If you’re not really looking for a pet, but would like to help, this would be a good time to donate any dog or puppy food and cat or kitten food.

Fosters for shelter animals are desperately needed.  If you would like to have a pet, but really don’t want to make a lifetime commitment, try fostering.  It’s a win, win for you and the animal.

Volunteers are needed to help with cleaning and caring for the animals.  Stop in on Saturday and get signed up to help the animals.

Donations for dog, puppy, cat and kitten food are always appreciated for the shelter animals.

If you have lost your pet be sure to check this page frequently.


Animals that are currently at the shelter:


Blake is a tri-color, male, 2-year-old Foxhound/mix who weighs about 40 pounds. He walks like a dream, has no cat or dog issues, loves people, could use a little more weight.


Brando is a 9- to 10-year-old male beagle who has a bit of arthritis, but loves to walk anyway! A short-legged man who weighs 29 pounds, Brando packs a lot of “friendly” into a small package. He gets along with dogs and cats, and encourages every new person he meets to be his friend.


Alabama is a mostly black, 4-year-old, neutered male, Lab mix who weighs about 45 pounds. This sweet boy is likely newly blind. He is a little tentative in tight spaces, and hasn’t figured out how to find his way around without bumping into things.  Once out in the open, he walks well on a leash, and is aided if his handler knows to talk to him and helps him steer clear of obstacles. Loves other dogs and would be a great companion for a compassionate owner. He’ll even offer to shake with the camera.


Louise is a female, tan and white, 2- to 3-year-old, Lab/Pit mix. She has a docked tail and weighs about 50 pounds. An excellent walk, she loves people and wants to please, but would likely chase cats.


Razor looks to be a Texas Heeler or Catahoula mix, 2-3 years old and around 50 lbs. He has an arresting dark brown face with speckled brown/white legs. Good with cats and other dogs, he can be a bit territorial when a car drives up while he’s on a walk outside the building. Basically a good dog, but wants attention on his own terms.


Rocky is a neutered, male boxer/pit mix, about 4 years old. He is energetic and would be a nice companion for someone who has time to give him exercise. No cat or dog issues, and he is fine with people young and old. He has a beautiful brown/brindle coat with a bright white chest.


Carlson is a 42 pound, 2-3 year old male pit bull mix. As most of that breed are, he is absolutely wonderful with people and is easily handled with no complaints about anything. He has gotten along well with all the other dogs he has been walked with, but would probably chase a cat if it ran. A great jogging mate, and companion!

Johnny is a year old Male gold and cream boxer/pit mix who weighs about 38 pounds, and who could easily become a real “talker.” He is a great walk and introduces wonderfully to the other dogs. He is easygoing, and wants nothing more than to be with people and be petted..pretty much all the time. A loveable dog!

Lancelot is a 2 1/2 to 3 year old, labby/terrier type with a docked tail. He was surrendered with a bad case of flea infestation but cleaned up and will be a mega handsome dog. He handles and co-operates well with people. Seems to have no trouble with dogs and will totally avoid cats. He is a bit thin at 38-42 pounds, but is a good guy!
Amos is German Shorthaired Pointer/Coonhound mix who has had an unfortunate run-in with some sort of vehicle, as you can see by the scrapes on his face. He is maybe 2 years old and will weigh about 45 or so pounds. He is a gentle soul with a great temperament. He walks well on a leash and gets along with most of the other dogs. Easy-going and great looking . . . a winning combination.
Leo is a young, male, 10-month-old, Chocolate Lab mix who weighs about 50 pounds now, but needs at least 10 more. A big, long-legged kid who walks well on a leash for a puppy. Loving and easy to handle. Handsome face, easy-going and playful.
