Animal Shelter

Animal Shelter CollageThe Shelter is here to help the community manage animal welfare in Bolivar County and the sites that are included within those borders.

Shelter Mission

The Shelter mission is to facilitate the placement of stray and unwanted animals and pets in desirable homes; to establish and maintain an animal shelter and associated procedures which promote the health, care and handling, and prevent overpopulation and the prevention of cruelty to animals. Education of the Human population is the key to managing the animal population that has been left in our care.
