68 Chihuahuas

As many of your have probably seen on the news, the Shelter has aided in the rescue of 68 Chihuahuas and Chinese Crested from a bad situation in Western Ky.

At this point, the dogs are all going through their initial vet screenings. Hopefully, early to mid next week, we will be starting to transport dogs to other area shelters and rescues. Some will be available for adoption here as well after they are spayed/neutered and accessed fully.  We will post on the website and Facebook as more information becomes available.

Rescues - If you are part of a rescue and are interested in taking/transporting some of these dogs, please send all of your contact info and whether or not you can transport yourselves. It can be emailed to We will be in touch with what we need, as we need it!

Public - We are looking for volunteers to help with the influx of animals. We need a few people to come and help keep up clean laundry mainly!   We are also in need of donations! Towels, Blankets, Laundry Detergent, Hand Soap, & Dish Soap mainly!

Walk , Run, or Dance for a Cause!

Many people attended the P.A.W.S. Rock the Riverfront concert last year that was put on by Cabo Wabo, and the Floyd County Animal Rescue League. The event raised thousands of dollars for the homeless animals of Floyd County. 

                This year, we are shaking things up a little!  On Friday, September 19th, the Rumors will be performing at the New Albany Amphitheater.        Then, continuing the fun on Saturday, the New Albany Animal Shelter will be hosting its first ever dog walk! Keep an eye on our website for more information on how to sign up and get sponsorships!

                What is your cat trying to say?

While cats may seem mysterious to some, to others understanding a cat is simply a matter of paying attention, watching the cat’s body language and responding accordingly. Cats use a variety of ways to communicate their feelings, needs and desires.

                Cats use their tails to communicate regularly. Watching the position of a cat’s tail is a great way to decipher how a cat is feeling.  Here are some of the basics in tail communication.
