We are unable to take in any found animals or owner surrenders at our Adoption Center. Since we do not euthanize for space, we must limit our animal admissions until space becomes available through adoptions.
As an “open admission” facility, Henderson County Animal Services is responsible for all admissions including strays, owner surrenders, and confiscated animals. Since the County Shelter is unable to refuse intakes due to lack of kennel space and the overwhelming homeless pet population, they are forced to euthanize for space. To try to alleviate space concerns, we receive our animals from Henderson County Animal Services as well as from other open admission animal shelters in surrounding counties.
