The Christian County Animal Shelter is a regional shelter that serves the counties of Christian, Trigg, Todd counties.  The shelter has approximately 6,100 square feet of space with 60 inside/outside runs, all under roof. There are two nurseries for separating puppies and kittens from the general population.

Adoption process:
You decide which animal you would like to adopt.  Cats are $34.00, puppies are $49.00 and older dogs are usually $51.50 because they have had a heartworm test.  We do not spay and neuter here, we are only a county-run animal shelter. You get a set of shots, county tag, spay/neuter voucher, and a rabies voucher.  Heartworm test is $2.50, microchip is $8.75, collars and leashes are $1.00 each and there is a $3.00 debit fee. If they are already fixed and/or up to date on rabies, the fee is reduced.  The dog goes home the same day with you.
