Jaxx - URGENT!

Jaxx is our longest resident at the shelter. He is a quirky, goofy, fast moving fellow who needs a special person willing to put up with terrific energy and playfulness like fierce games of fetch and tug-of-war. He goes nowhere without a toy. He will grin and show his smile when excited but, he also may not appreciate strangers going at his face until properly introduced. Once he makes a friend, he is always your friend.  He is fast moving, loyal and very loveable. Jaxx is a confident personality and comes when called. He is an athletic type for sure. A dog savvy person is needed and a fenced yard. He can also jump a regular fence if he wants.

Meet Goldie!

Goldie is a healthy young adult girl of about 40 lbs. Her special needs are needing more socialization.  

She arrived in early June after appearing with 3 pups near a farm. She was loyal to come and go to this farm house but was always elusive. Her pups were rescued to safety.  She is now fully vetted and in a foster home. She has relaxed and spends her days wrestling and playing with two other dogs and loves coming inside the home to rest!! She is a sweetie and a joy to see her be happy. We feel she will transition to a new home and another social dog would be highly recommended.

PALS Application Still Available!

We offer assistance to Powell County residents in financial need of spaying and neutering their pets.  If your household is low-income, you may qualify.  You can obtain an application for the PALS program at the Powell County Public Library and at the Powell County Animal Shelter.  


Trap-Spay/Neuter-Release (or Adopt!)

Right now, we have a special spay/neuter program for stray cats in the Powell County area.  By trapping, altering, and releasing stray cats, we are able to address the animal population in a humane and effective way.  For more information, contact the Powell County Animal Shelter at (606) 663-4998 or in person at 121 Echo Hollow Road in Clay City.     

Foster Parents and Volunteers Needed! 

As an animal rescue, we are always in need of foster parents.  This gives us an opportunity to learn about the pet, socialize it, and determine who the pet would be the right forever family.  We can also use volunteers at the shelter to keep the facility clean and the animals happy.  Contact us for an application to become a foster parent today!
