Washington county animal shelter

We have cats of every color and personality. As the County division that deals with neighborhood complaints, we know that the vast majority of barking dog complaints are made against animals that are outside while their owners are away. We want to be sure that every animal in our shelter goes to a home that will care for the animal and treasure it for the rest of its life. We also have the sad job of picking up deceased cats that have been hit by cars or killed by predators. Occasionally, we have animals that were confiscated from owners who abused or neglected them. In February, we will begin rebuilding our training and office wards. Please call us at 479 695-3450 to set up an appointment for surrender, or call Animal Control at 479 444-5700 to report a stray animal.

If you rent, our staff will verify with your landlord that you can have a pet. We have a constantly changing array of dogs and cats looking for their new homes. Do you rent, and does your landlord allows pets? Finally, fill out a pet adoption application. When animals are lost, we work very hard to find their owners. If you are looking for a barn cat, we may be able to match you with a cat that has come to us with an outdoors-only background. Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri, Sat 12-5 p.

We encourage cats to be indoors-only. We only place dogs with adopters who will provide indoor homes. The responsibilities include daily care, feeding, and medicating of animals, as well as daily shelter sanitizing, cleaning, and heavy lifting. Weds Pet Adoption Hours: 11 a.

The animal shelter was named in memory of Bonnie Lynn Hays, a former Washington County commissioner and long-time supporter of animals. The good news — and what keeps us feeling optimistic — is that we are part of thousands of success stories every year. Dogs also receive a one-year license. How do I adopt a pet? For more information please check out our Please note: Foster Applicants must be 18 years of age or older. We share knowledge, information, and ideas to help the animals in our community. Either way, we recommend you meet with the dog or cat before making any decisions.

Adoption

Washington county animal shelter

Hays Small Animal Shelter is a great place to find your new dog or cat. Last year, we provided care for about 2,000 animals in our shelter, responded to more than 7,000 citizen calls, answered over 50,000 phone calls, and did community outreach at schools, fairs and events. We screen our animals for health problems and for behavior issues before placing them up for adoption. Those statistics help us chart our progress in saving the lives of animals in our community. Why do we have this policy? It is possible that some days you may leave earlier or later than the listed hours.

Unlike most animal shelters that take in stray animals, every healthy unclaimed animal that comes to our shelter finds an adoptive home. Almost every one of them started out as a family pet but was lost along the way. Celebrating 60 Years Celebrating our 60th is only the beginning of what we have planned for 2020. Last year, we reunited almost 1000 dogs and cats with their worried families. Otherwise, we ask that cats and kittens come to your home and stay inside-only for at least a few weeks.
