We Need help!

 

We are in search of individuals or businesses interested in placement of feral cats. Through the work that we do in helping local communities with Trap, Neuter, Release efforts, we come across many cats that are not suited for life as house pets. These cats may be feral or have tendencies that cause them to be stressed in home or shelter environments. Feral cats housed close together in a shelter setting breeds disease and stress, regardless of efforts made to decrease stress. We rely on community members who are willing to open their property to these cats. They are spayed or neutered and are up to date on rabies vaccination. Applicants for “Barn Cats” go through the same adoption application process, but the cats adopted must fit the criteria that they are not suited for life as an indoor cat. Interested parties must be able to provide a supply of food, clean water, and shelter for these cats. There is no adoption fee associated with barn cat placement, but as aforementioned, these are cats that are not suitable for indoor life.

Please call Bailey at 304 642 6509 or email director@tcanimalshelter.org if you can help.


Our goal is to help the communities that are dealing with colonies of community cats to decrease litters of kittens as well as to eliminate disease transmission. Our ultimate goal is to have all feral cats in the area spayed or neutered. We cannot accomplish this expensive and overwhelming goal without the cooperation of the community.

Who Are We?

We are the only "no-kill" shelter in the area

Tucker County Animal Shelter is a “no-kill” shelter who works to find loving homes for the unwanted and abandonment pets of Tucker County.   A "no-kill" shelter is an animal shelter that does not kill healthy or treatable animals even when the shelter is full, reserving euthanasia for terminally ill animals or those considered dangerous to public safety. 

Funding

The Animal Shelter  and the Animal Control are funded through fines, dog licenses, adoption fees, and donations. Unlike private shelters that have limitations on the number of pets they accept, we accept all animals. 

Donations

We are always in need of supplies.  Items such as dry dog and cat food, disposable gloves, Lysol, bleach, cleaning supplies, toys, etc.  If you're not sure whether we can use an item,   - just ask!  Please  call (304) 478-6232, to find out if your item could be used to help the shelter animals.
