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.

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.
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!

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.
