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.

“Dogs have a way of finding the people who need them, filling an emptiness we don’t even know we have.” Thom Jones
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.
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.
We have partnered with “We Lov Pets-Marietta” to host our first annual “Throw Down for the Pound” on Saturday October 17th at the Marietta Middle School. We are looking for sponsors for the event (see the 3 levels of sponsorship below). Money raised will help build an outside, concreted, & covered area for our shelter dogs. If you would like to help support our cause please mail payment no later than Saturday August 22nd to:
PO Box 110
St. Marys, WV 26170
Please also include the logo you would like us to use for advertising purposes. If you have any questions do not hesitate to email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be more than happy to help you. On behalf of the ones who have no voices, we thank you! 🐾💙
