Animal Shelter

Yadkin County Animal Shelter

 In an effort to keep everyone safe and healthy the Yadkin County Animal Shelter will begin practicing social distancing. Our goal is to continue to serve our community, but also limit the number of people at the Shelter at any given time. To assist us with this, we are asking that you call before coming to the Shelter. If you are interested in a service we provide or interested in adopting one of our animals, please call the Shelter at 336-849-7901 option 2 first.
 If you have a lost pet, please go to our Facebook page and message us there. You can also view stray animals we have at the Shelter. If you see your pet on our page, please call the Shelter at 336-849-7901 option 2.
 Please know that we expect an increase in our call volume so please be patient. If you reach our voicemail please leave a message and we will get back to you before the end of the business day.

The Shelter was first opened in 2005. Our facility includes 21 dog kennels, 3 outside dog kennels, 21 cat kennels, an Isolation/Quarantine Room that can house up to 20 additional cats or 6 more dogs, and an adoptable cat room called the "Catty Shack", which can house 12 cats. We have both cats and dogs that have become separated from their owners. Our first priority is to try to locate the animal’s owner and reunite them with their family. If we are unable to locate an owner, we work on placing these animals in homes through adoption or our work with rescue groups. We work closely with the Yadkin County Sheriff’s Office in Animal Control including rabies response.

Visit our Facebook page! You can also view our adoptable animals through Petango or Petfinder. Our animals can be found by searching with the Shelter’s zip code, 27055.
