Shelter dogs are always available for an adoption fee of $60 if NOT spayed or neutered. $116 if already spayed or neutered via the shelter. The adoption fee includes a bag containing:

  • Food
  • Treats
  • Toys
  • Leash
  • Collar

Also included in the adoption fee are dog tags/license and records for shots given while at the shelter.

The Perry County Dog Shelter typically averages 50 - 70 adoptable dogs on hand at any given time.

In 2018 500 dogs were placed into the dog rescue system. 200 dogs were adopted out of the Shelter.

 

If your dog ends up in the shelter it costs $40 to release the dog from the shelter. If the dog does NOT have a valid dog tag the redemption fee is $72 and includes a new tag. In addition, there is  a $10/day boarding fee. ALL dogs brought to the shelter are given the bordetella and 5-Way vaccines. They are also wormed. If you can prove your dog has had the bordetella vaccine, the $15 vaccine fee will be waived.
