This is an open admissions shelter that takes Owner Surrender an stray domestic animals from two Counties, Daviess and McLean KY. The shelter staff and volunteers work very hard to ensure that each animal gets placed in the right home or rescue. We can recommend transportation services if you do not live in our area. Our shelter is very rescue friendly. Unfortunately, being an open admissions shelter, we must euthanize for space and temperament.
