The Boone County Animal shelter was established by Boone County Fiscal Court in accordance with the Kentucky Revised Statutes. Its mission is to provide services which safeguard the public health and safety, to humanely house and care for animals in its charge, to protect the animals of the community from abuse and neglect, to end the euthanasia of healthy adoptable animals and to provide its citizens with information concerning responsible ownership.
Adoptable Animal Types & Adoption Fees
Boone County Animal Shelter has the following adoptable animal types available and their adoption fees are as follows:
- Dogs & Puppies: $200.00
- Cats & Kittens: $90.00
- Ferrets: $40.00
- Small Animals: $10.00
All of their adoptable animals are spayed/neutered prior to adoption, fully vetted, current on all vaccines, microchipped and if age appropriate, all of their animals are rabies vaccinated.
Animals available for adoption are screened by our staff for signs of health and behavior problems. While we believe them to be free of any problems, diseases can incubate for weeks or months with no outward signs of illness. The same can be said for behavior. Sometimes the animal may not show any signs of behavior problems during their stay at the shelter. We gather as much information as possible at the time of intake to offer them the best chance at finding a new home. Sometimes information is limited or not available. We must rely on the observations and interactions with our staff and volunteers to determine any special needs.
