How YOU can help the South Kosovo Dog and Cat Shelter:
I needed to open a non-profit, no kill animal shelter for all breeds of dogs and cats. Animal House Shelter was established in June of 2002.
Dogs are $185.00 (puppies up to 6 months are $300.00) and cats are $95.00 (kittens up to 6 months are $125.00). This price includes the spay/neuter, rabies shot, and other required vaccinations. For those cats who come into the shelter already spayed/neutered, the adoption fee is $45.00.
Internal and External Parasites Puppies and kittens are automatically de-wormed at the shelter for roundworms and hookworms. Older animals are de-wormed on an as needed basis. Once you have adopted your dog or cat, we advise that you take a sample of your animal’s stool to your veterinarian for a fecal examination and internal parasite control program. Many dogs and cats that come into our shelters bring fleas and ticks into the kennels. Animals that are infested with external parasites are treated with topical medications. We recommend that you consult your veterinarian regarding an external parasite control program.

Dogs and Cats for Adoption | Animal Shelter | Southside SPCA
Our mission is to provide a shelter where unwanted and abandoned dogs and cats can be humanely housed until adopted to qualified homes. We serve Sheridan County, which is mostly rural. We accept and care for stray dogs and cats. If their owners do not claim them after five days, we assume ownership and put them up for adoption. We accept owner surrenders for whatever reason. All animals are spayed or neutered before being made available for adoption.The shelter has many types of dogs and cats available for adoption, including purebred and mixed breeds. Many come to us as surrenders, thus giving us more information on their backgrounds and personalities, whether they get along with dogs, cats or children, and other important information. Others come to us as strays, but even though we don't have a great deal of insight about their previous lives, through daily social interactions and training, the shelter staff and volunteers get to know each dog and cat's personality, enabling us to make the best possible match for each adopter and animal. We treat every animal as an individual, regardless of breed or background.We have room for individual accommodations for 38 dogs and 98 cats, but have had up to 65 dogs and 165 cats at one time. The new shelter can accommodate roughly 3 times the animals that the old shelter could handle (18 dogs & 48 cats). The old shelter didnt have facilities to separate animals but the new one has accommodations for new arrivals, for those ready for adoption and for sick or injured animals. The new shelter also has individual outdoor runs with inside loafing areas.The puppies were a big hit!
