Who we are
The Mason County Animal Shelter is a county shelter in the west of West Virginia. Animals are held in accordance with state requirements, and are redeemed by the owner, adopted, or as a last resort; euthanized. We are a high intake county shelter and need rescue help! Our county commission limits us to 25 dogs and 20 cats. All the adoptions would not be possible without the amazing support of our community. You are all making a difference for every animal here with every post share, heart emoji and comment. Your generosity with donations makes life better for the animals while they are here. We can all be proud of our accomplishments together. Let us keep raising the bar to expand, reach new people and keep getting the word out that there are so many animals we can save and help and that it feels good to contribute to your community and know you can make a difference. Thank you all so much. For more information see the Mason County Animal Control website.

Volunteer We are looking for volunteers. If you love dogs and being outside when the weather is nice then we have the opportunity for you. We need adult volunteers in the afternoons to work with our dogs to play with them, teach them leash manners and maybe some tricks. We have all the treats you need along with tennis balls and frisbees. Come be part of the fun and make some new furry friends along the way. We guarantee a happy heart and a face full of smiles every time you come.

We would like to start a foster program at the shelter. If you have extra time and experience of caring for a dog or cat, but not sure of a life long commitment to a pet, then this may be something that would interest you. Some of our pets need help that we do not have time to do consistently. Leash walking, socializing, learning commands in a home environment would go a long way to helping some of these animals get adopted. It would give us valuable feedback on that animal and with proper training would help make them happier and more adoptable. If you would seriously be interested in fostering please let us know.

When fostering for the Mason County Animal Shelter, you are volunteering to temporarily care for the animal. This includes basic necessities like food, water and shelter. While the dog is in your care, the animal still belongs to the Mason County Animal Shelter. The point of fostering is to help provide the animal with socialization and loving care. A full copy of the foster agreement is available upon request at the shelter.

Lost your dog?
Stray dogs without identification are kept for 5 days so that the owner can claim it before we put the dog up for adoption or rescue. Dogs with identication are kept for 10 days before we put the dog up for adoption/rescue. Contact the shelter to check whether your pet is there. Some of the stray dogs are featured on the Mason County Animal Facebook Page but not all are put here so contact the shelter if you have lost your dog.

Find the right dog for you
When looking for that new family member please remember to really think about the things you and your family want and need in a pet that fits the family lifestyle. Get to know your breeds! Some breeds require more space, exercise and circumstances than others. Even if you are going to adopt a mixed breed, look into what it's primary breed needs in a home, environment and exercise. Your new family member needs to be wanted by everyone in the family and included in your daily lives to be truly happy. Click here for more information on how to find the right dog.

Please Donate to Help the Dogs
We need towels, blankets, hard and soft dog food, basic cleaning supplies and dog beds. We also have an Amazon Wishlist. See our Donation Page for other items we can use. You can also donate to our Medical Fund. For more information about how you can donate, see our Donation Page. On behalf of the dogs thank you.

No Squeeky Toys Please
Toys that make a noise when you squeeze them can encourage some dogs to be aggressive towards young children because they squeek too. The device that makes the noise is usually small and can be harmful if swallowed. Some toys of this type contain a small battery which is poisonous if the dog eats it. The best toys are tuggers, tennis balls and hard chew toys that cannot be ripped apart.
