About Our Shelter

Garrett Animal Shelter is a city funded shelter that deals only with dogs and cats. Our shelter has room for about 20 dogs and 10 cats. Unfortunately, we are not a no kill shelter; our animals will be available for adoption for 3 weeks. Most of the animals we get are strays, so we don’t know a whole lot about them other than what we learn while interacting with them here. We only accept animals from inside the city limits but often have a list of animals needing homes from the county. Please feel free to call or e-mail us about a specific pet you are looking for if none are listed here.

Adopting a friend

The adoption fee for dogs and cats is $12.00 plus the cost of sterilization and rabies. The total is $84.50 to $97 for male dogs, $94.50 to $107 for female dogs, $59.50 to $67 for male cats and $82 to $97 for female cats That includes at least one vaccination with Vanguard (parvo/distemper vac.) for dogs and one vaccination of felomune for cats and at least one deworming for dogs & cats. The adopter is required to get any follow up vaccines needed (rabies vaccine) and to have them heartworm tested or feline leukemia, & preventative. However if you are renting your home we need a statement from your landlord stating that you can have a pet with all of their contact information.
