Animal Shelter

Green River Animal ShelterWe work very hard to get each and every pet into loving and forever homes. Our dogs are socialized and have interaction everyday. We learn about the dogs and we know their personality, helping us to find the right person for adoption.

Please do not drop off animals without our staff being present. Remember - we can only take animals from Adair and Green County!

We only accept cash or check. Returned checks will be addressed by the County Attorney. Check holder will be responsible for all fees incurred.
