Who we are
Mercer County Animal Shelter is an open admission county animal shelter. We are responsible for providing humane care for stray and relinquished animals in Mercer County WV. We accept animals from Mercer County residents only. We are able to adopt pets to homes outside of Mercer County as all our pets are spayed/neutered before leaving the shelter. We are rescue friendly to 501(c)(3) registered rescues.

Lost your dog?
Stray dogs without identication are kept for 5 days before being put up for adoption. Dogs with identication are kept for 10 days before being put up for adoption. Contact the shelter to check whether your pet is there. Some of the stray dogs are featured on the Mercer County Animal Shelter Facebook Page but not all are put here so contact the shelter if you have lost your dog.

Find the right dog for you
When looking for that new family member please remember to really think about the things you and your family want and need in a pet that fits the family lifestyle. Get to know your breeds! Some breeds require more space, exercise and circumstances than others. Even if you are going to adopt a mixed breed, look into what it's primary breed needs in a home, environment and exercise. Your new family member needs to be wanted by everyone in the family and included in your daily lives to be truly happy. Click here for more information on how to find the right dog.

Please Donate to Help the Dogs
We need towels, blankets, hard and soft dog food, basic cleaning supplies and dog beds. We also have an Amazon Wishlist. See our Donation Page for other items we can use. You can also donate to our Spay/Neuter Fund. For more information about how you can donate, see our Donation Page. On behalf of the dogs thank you.
