The animal shelter will be moving to our temporary facility sometime in the next week.  The temporary facility is located right across the parking lot from the current shelter so you won't have any trouble finding us.  Please be patient and understand that we will do the best we can to help you but will be limited on the services we can offer during this transition.
There will be a couple of changes that we want to let everyone know about:

  1. Due to extremely limited space, we will no longer accept unwanted pet surrenders without an appointment.  If you call or stop in with an unwanted pet, we will allow you to put up a poster, put the pet on our Petfinder.Com page, do background checks or home checks for rehoming within the City of Gillette, and put you on a waiting list so if a cage or kennel opens up, we will call you. 
  2. Our pet area and lobby public access will be limited. Check out Petfinder.Com before coming to the shelter so you know if there is a dog or cat you are interested in.  We will have limited room for people to walk through so if you aren't missing a pet or have one in mind for adoption, you may be asked to come back after we move back into the regular shelter. 
  3. If you are missing a pet, you are responsible to come to the shelter and look for your pet. With such limited space and so many animals, you must come yourself or have someone who will recognize your pet come to the shelter to check, daily if necessary.
  4. Stray animals will be accepted as usual.  Holding periods are between 3-5 days, so if a pet isn't claimed during that time, it will be adopted or euthanized.  Come look for missing animals the day they go missing and each day after that. We are not a boarding facility and will not board pets, so please come claim missing animals immediately.

The Animal Control Division is composed of one Animal Control Supervisor, three Animal Control Officers, and two Animal Shelter Assistants. The Animal Control Division provides enforcement of the City's ordinances on animal control. They work to balance health, safety, and welfare needs of people and animals. The Animal Shelter is a City owned and operated facility. It provides housing and other shelter services for Gillette and Campbell County. 
We no longer accept personal checks.

Monday - Friday 1:00 P.M. - 5:30 P.M.

The Animal Shelter will be moving into a smaller, temporary facility while the main building is remodeled. We won't have as much space for adoptable pets, so we are looking for people to help foster shelter pets during the remodel. Please contact the Shelter at (307) 686-5249.
