FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Scheduling An Appointment Using The Adoption Application?

The best way to schedule an appointment starts with completing and submitting an Adoption Application. If there is a specific pet you're interested in seeing, the application has a space where you can give us that information. If you don't have a specific pet in mind, you need only specify whether you're interested in seeing cats or dogs. After we've received and reviewed your application, a volunteer will call you to arrange an appointment. Click here to go go the Adoption Application page. Please be sure to click on the proper submission button (cat or dog) at the bottom of the application page to insure your application goes to the correct volunteer.

I am aware of a situation of an animal being abused or neglected.
 What should I do about it?

Neglecting or abusing an animal is against the law in West Virginia. Report the situation to the Barbour County Communications Center at 304-457-5167; then call our shelter at 304-823-2012 to make us aware of the situation, as well. We will follow up with local law enforcement officials to see to it that the situation is fully resolved.
