McDowell County Animal Shelter

The purpose of the Animal Shelter adoption policy is to reduce the general health risk to the public associated with stray, vicious, and potentially rabid animals, to inhibit animal reproduction which further contributes to animal overpopulation in the county and to reduce the number of animals that the county much euthanize on a regular basis because of lack of suitable homes, adopters, and the presence of diseases. The Public Works Department oversees the Animal Shelter. The Shelter accepts stray or unwanted animals and serves as an Adoption Center for those animals that are adoptable.
