This place should not be called a shelter. Last time I checked, shelter had a positive connotation. The director Sam Lockridge is a despicable human being. He has refused funding in this facility that would allow him to humanely euthanize the animals that must be put down. Instead, he uses the gas chamber. As if this wasn't the worst of it, he also has refused pick ups from local rescues. Most animal control facilities contact anyone they can to try to avoid killing perfectly healthy animals. This man for some reason has no heart. I understand that not every animal can be saved, but don't they deserve a chance. Please save these animals and do whatever you can to get them out of there!

This is such a sad facility. So many animals and the stench is awful. The director, Sam Lockridge, is absolutely worthless. He couldn't care less about the fate of the animals. He was actually trying to lower to number of days to keep the animals from 5 to 3 before putting them down. Hundreds of animals are killed every week by the truck loads, and I blame that largely on the lack of action from the director to more actively encourage adoption and put more efforts (and financing) in advertising. Its just sad how much he gets paid while so many innocent animals are killed. He'll put on a somber face for the press, while behind the scenes he could care less. Its really disgusting. That huge number of animals should not have to be killed.

The Shelby Animal Shelter is a nice facility for animals, but they do put animals to sleep that are not adopted within 5 days, this is very sad, but they do not have room for all the animals that they have to take in. If you are in the market for a pet this is a great place to go rescue an animal. They usually have a great selection of dogs and cats.

I give the Animal Shelter one star, and it would be less if I could give it. The reason is they kill all the animals they take in if they are not adopted or claimed in five days. That is so sad. I realize this is not a no-kill shelter and that it is run by the county. But that could change if they wanted it to. You just don't kill animals. That is so crazy. I am filled with tears even writing this. God put animals on Earth for us to enjoy, but people are so ignorant and downright stupid and some don't give a rat's backside if their animals procreate all the time. If they would only get their animals spayed or neutered, then the shelter wouldn't kill them. I won't even go to the Animal Shelter because it upsets me and my family so much.

I found this shelter just driving by and went in to see if they had any birds. They did take us back to see the dogs. They were in small concrete cubicles, and barking a lot. I wanted to take them all home. the attendants were great. I believe they do the best they can with what they have there. If youre looking for a pet this is the way to go. You can find any size pet even put in a request for something in particular you are hoping for. The animals will reward you with love.
