Lewis Upshur Animal Control Facility is Located in Upshur County and is not a Humane Society but an animal welfare organization that serves the needs of two (2) counties. The dogs come into the facility and have a five-day grace period for us to find them a forever home until they are euthanized.

If there is a collar with identification on it - we work very hard at finding its owner. We are a rural shelter that has limited means to serve the duty that we are called to do for this area. We are committed to this - and have found tremendous success with our website.

The reality in America is that if each of us were to take the number of dogs home that we would need to adopt to solve the problem of overpopulation - we would EACH have to adopt SEVEN (7) dogs...that would mean a family of 5 would own 35 dogs!

Please do not blame the shelter staff for this as many times there is no choice - it is just a reality of the numbers, and a reminder for us to pass on the message of spaying or neutering our pets to solve the problem of unwanted litters of dogs. The date that is on their picture is the last day of the 5 day (state law) holding period.

Congress has passed a new bill (state law) which became effective July 7, 2005 all animals adopted from a shelter in West Virginia will have to be spayed or neutered. All of our dogs have been wormed and been given a DHPP SHOT
