Giles County Animal Shelter

Until There Are None Left to Rescue
We are working to make our County a better place, one animal at a time.

We have great dogs and cats for adoption! So, come by and adopt a new best friend or just come by and visit. Our guys love to meet new people and have visitors. Come by and give a local shelter animal a forever home!

We are always accepting donations!
