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

If you would like to volunteer to help or want to adopt a new pet, please

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.

Our cat shelter is FULL! We are currently taking applications for anyone who would be willing to foster! By doing this, not only do you save the little one you foster, but also the one that we now have room for at our shelter! Please PM us your email address & we will get a Foster application emailed to you right away! TOGETHER we can make a difference!
Wow!!! What an amazing day! *ALL* the dogs got walked today!! A VERY special thanks to everyone who came out and made this possible! We are planning on having another walking day THIS Thursday at 10:00 AM! Please mark your calendars and come join us!
We want to send out a huge THANK YOU to this kind young man. He recently celebrated his birthday and asked for donations for the Humane Society instead of gifts.. Meows and Bow-Wows to Desmond.
Just a reminder that we still need bakers for Saturday’s SAMS event. Please put enough in a Baggie to sell for $1.00.
We will be set up outside of the SAM’s club in Parkersburg THIS Sat. 10-2 collecting dog & cat food donations (Purina is preferred). We will also have some tasty baked goods for sale that day too. Please make plans to stop on over & say hi!
The Pleasants County Humane Society is hosting a “Thirty-One” fundraiser Sat. April 18th 10am-4pm at the Belmont Training Center (behind the Middle School). Can’t come? We are collecting orders NOW!! Please click the link below to get your orders in TODAY! Our shelter will receive 100% of the proceeds from this event to put toward an outside, roofed, & concreated common area for our dogs. We currently do not have a space like this for the dogs and believe that this will greatly improve the lives of these animals while in our care. Thank you for your support! http://www.mythirtyone.com/10040/…/Party/EventDetail/8083177
Our Humane Officer got a very disturbing call this evening. A dog was found in the Bens Run area that had been abandoned, locked in a crate. The dog was deceased. He either starved to death or drowned. And as you can see he certainly fought to escape his torture.
We are seeking any information. This was intentional and cruel. Our shelter does not turn dogs away. There is NO excuse for this. PLEASE help us find and prosecute the monster guilty of this. We’re calling this mission “Justice for Nathan”. Nathan was a male, tan in color, Boxer/pit mix. He was wearing an orange collar.
