County Animal Welfare League, Inc.
Our goal is to become a no-kill shelter! Rescues, please help us!
We are an animal welfare league incorporated in April 2005. We have contracted with the county to run the animal shelter. We do not believe in euthanasia due to overcrowding. Local residents, you can help us with the overpopulation problem by spaying/neutering your cats and dogs. We offer low-cost spay/neuter to county residents through Help For Animals. If you live in Mason County and would like to take advantage of this program, please call our shelter director at 304-675-6458 for more information. We have a successful rescue program that helps us keep our shelter population at a manageable level. If you are interested in rescuing from us, please submit a rescue application and we'll be in touch. We welcome reputable rescues and can assist with full vetting and transport to the northeast.
We are always in need of volunteers and donations, as the funding we get from the county only covers about 40% of our operating costs. We rely on the help of our supporters for the balance.
Please join our mailing list to keep up to date on what's happening at our shelter...and see happy endings pictures & stories of animals who have been rescued or adopted. Please consider rescuing or adopting one of these wonderful animals today! If you can't adopt or rescue, please consider supporting us financially in our efforts to make this a no-kill shelter.
