Welcome

Welcome to the Pleasants County Dog Shelter in St. Marys WV.

We are a non-profit organization dedicated to preventing cruelty, abuse, neglect, and over-population of unwanted animals while seeking adoption of these animals into compatible homes, and teaching humane awareness and respect for all life thus helping to build a better community.

We are always in need of volunteers. Especially to walk the dogs.

Our available pets are listed on Petfinder.  Visit our available pets by clicking here:

We are currently under new staffing.  Someone is usually at the shelter Mon- Fri 10 to 2, but please call ahead to make appointments. Weekends by Appointment only.

New Comfort Room

We now have a real-life/comfort room at our dog shelter! We’re hopeful that this room can help stressed/scared dogs relax. Also this room will allow dogs to experience a more realistic version of what to expect in a home as well as an area for adopters spend time with their potential new pet.

Thank You to Everyone for Donations at Sam’s Club

Just wanted to thank everyone who came out to our bake sale at Sam’s Saturday. Whether you helped, donated items from our wish list, bought some baked goods, or just stopped to say hello we appreciate you. It’s through everyone’s continued support that we are able to offer second chances to the animals in our area.
