Please remember to indicate where the dog is located (town and state). People who steal and abuse dogs, sell animals to laboratories and train fighting dogs often answer "free to good home" ads. For your dogs's safety, research potential adopters carefully before directing them to your home. Disclaimer: and its staff cannot be held responsible for any problems arising from the information displayed here. Dogs run away or are stolen everyday and end up in stray dog pounds miles from home. If they are not claimed within 7 days (sometimes less) they can be rehomed or killed. Hundreds of 'stray' dogs are rehomed or killed every week because their owner cannot be identified. You have no right to claim the dog after 7 days. A microchip can also be used to prove that the dog is yours if ownership is disputed. Click here for more information.

Dogs Needing Rescue - Shelbyville, KY
The Shelby County Animal Shelter is located at 266 Kentucky Street, Shelbyville, KY, 40065. It is not a no-kill shelter and there are many pets in danger of being destroyed if they cannot find a home or a place at a rescue. Please click here to see the list of dogs needing rescue Shelby County Animal Shelter are an open admissions animal shelter for Shelby County. We are governed by the Shelby County Fiscal Court and operated by Shelby County tax dollars. We accept all unwanted and stray animals in our county. We also perfom all neglect and abuse investigations for Shelby County. The animals at our shelter are random source. We try hard to ensure the animals adopted from our shelter are healthy and free of undesirable temperaments. We aggressively pursue solid adoptions and work with rescue groups, both purebred groups and generic. We do not charge a pull fee for reputable rescue groups. Receiving rescues are responsible for all vetting and transport of the animal(s) being pulled. We are currently working with several non-profit groups to ensure the animals adopted are spayed/neutered before adoption. If the animals are not altered before adoption, alteration must be performed within 30 days of adoption. We are working towards making Shelby County a no-kill county. In order to achieve this goal, Shelby County Humane Society is working with Shelby County Animal Shelter. The first step to achieving our no-kill goal is to have all animals at Shelby County Animal Shelter vetted and spayed/neutered. By doing this, the chances of adoptions and rescues increase significantly. This also will prevent accidental or unwanted litters of animals in the future. Please help Shelby County become a no-kill county! Please consider donating/sponsoring an animal at Shelby County Animal Shelter. Click here to contribute to this worthy cause! Anyone interested in adopting or rescuing an animal from our shelter should contact the shelter either by phone at 502-633-0009, e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org or come to the shelter in person. We do have an adoption process including an application. We make every effort ensure a direct adoption is a good placement. We work with the potential adopter to find the right pet for their home. With each paid dog or puppy adoption, a voucher for $10 towards a rabies vaccination is provided. On unaltered dogs, a voucher for $30 towards spay/neuter is provided to help defray the cost to the adopter. The adoption cost for a dog is $65. Kittens and cats are $40 which includes the $30 spay/neuter voucher and $10 for the rabies voucher. The surgeries are not performed here. These vouchers may be used at any vet or low cost clinic. The adopter pays the difference. Thank you. James Collins, A.C.O.

LACC has many wonderful animals available for adoption. As part of progressive changes happening at the shelter, veterinary care is now provided by a dedicated and full-time veterinarian. Dr. Shelly Liles evaluates all animals available for adoption. They receive a physical exam, deworming, and core vaccinations (FVRCP for cats, DAPP and Bordatella for dogs). PLUS a Rabies vaccination if they are over 12 weeks old (for cats and dogs less than 12 weeks old, a $10 Rabies voucher will be issued, to be used when they are old enough to receive the vaccine). Before leaving the shelter, each animal is microchipped and registered to the new owner (or the rescue group who pulls them). Meet the animals at the shelter from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m, Monday through Friday. For more information on adopting, email email@example.com

Scrap (and hundreds like him) left to die at the pound
I saw you with Scrap today. You were smiling and for a while Scrap was sitting next to you with his tail wagging. You were standing in front of the intake counter at Jacksonville Animal Control. You were explaining that you couldn't keep him because he chewed through a $5.00 dollar telephone cord. I heard the lady tell you that they take in at least 100 dogs a day and that Scrap would most likely be euthanized, because he is a bigger dog. You were still smiling and Scrap was still looking up at you with his tail wagging wondering if the new adventure with you was going to involve some new dog friends that he could hear frantically barking all over the building. The lady asked if you wanted his collar and his leash and you took them off (presumably for the new dog you will buy after the holiday) as the lady put on his new plastic Animal Control, ID collar and an Animal Control leash. Scrap was still a good boy, still wagging his tail. As you walked out the door you were still smiling. When you walked out the door Scrap stopped smiling. As he was tied up Scrap's tail stopped wagging and went between his legs and he started crying. Scrap kept trying to get to you long after you were gone. The lady at Animal Control felt bad for him and tried to give him a treat but all Scrap wanted was to be with you so he kept crying. The Animal Control Officer came to get him and Scrap left with him his tail between his legs and his head down. Scrap knew then that you were leaving him at that place and you weren't coming back. Scrap has seven days until he dies, Scrap probably won't live until Christmas. This is a true story, it just happened yesterday. I don't expect that anyone is going to run down to Jacksonville Animal Control and get Scrap but please if you are thinking about taking your pet to Animal Control - don't. If you are looking for a pet then check at Animal Control as there are so many Scrap's there. Although Scrap is in Jacksonville, FL, this is also happening hundreds and thousands of times in all towns and counties AND countries. PLEASE take pet ownership seriously! These precious, loving, loyal animals do not deserve this. They ARE man's best friend! In good times and bad times, they'll always be there for you and never judge you. You have a duty to care for your dog, not to dump it because you cannot be bothered to train it or because it is inconvenient to keep it.
