Greenup, KY: URGENT! Available Dogs/Puppies/Cats/Kittens!

POSTED 7/6  SHELTER FULL!! Please SHARE this album so that a forever home can be found for each of the innocent animals. Very rural shelter. Adoption fee is $10! Limited transportation assistance is available. No pull fee available to reputable rescues.

CONTACT:   PH: (606) 473-5711  Email: [email protected] Transportation assistance is available to rescues by contacting Bev at PH: (304) 962-0067


Please Share our Available animals at Greenup County Animal Shelter in Greenup, KY. Vaccinations will no longer be given at Greenup, due to not enough in donations to pay for the vaccinations. My husband and I have been providing vaccines since September 2016, however, due to owing over $4,000 in vet bills to Tri-County Animal Clinic in Louisa, KY. Over 95% of the vet bill is owed due to helping animals in need at Greenup receive vet care, surgery, flea/tick treatment or vaccinations.

Also, due to not much in donations we will also be discontinuing the flea/tick treatment at Greenup. We are deeply saddened by these decisions, however, we can not continue to charge vet bills and pay for everything ourselves. If you wish to continue the vaccines and flea/tick treatments then donations will need to be made to our PayPal at or you can contact Tri-County Animal Clinic at 606-673-1144 or 606-673-1344.

My husband and I are not employees of the shelter, we run their facebook page and I have been responsible for administering the hundreds of vaccinations provided to dogs/puppies at the shelter. We truly enjoy assisting the innocent and abandoned animals in need, however, we can not continue going in debt thousands of dollars yearly. In 2017, Greenup County Animal Shelter in Greenup, KY has taken in 285 dogs/puppies/cats/kittens.

 Sky Pit Bull Terrier Large Adult Male EXTREMELY URGENT! ZERO INTEREST! 1.5 years old. Neutered. Has lived with small dogs and children. A little too curious about cats. Scared in kennel, but warms up quickly. Just a big, strong baby.  LOVES TO RUN, PLAY, SUNBATHE, & SMELL THE ROSES. KNOWS SOME COMMANDS (Sit, Paw). WALKS WELL ON TRAINING COLLAR AND NOW, AFTER WORK, EVEN A REGULAR LEASH.
R.I.P. - Ben Pit Bull Terrier SENIOR Male HEALTH ISSUES! SAD UPDATE…Ben recently took a turn for the worse and the very difficult decision was made to put him down so he could finally be at peace. Not only was his eyes failing horribly, but he suddenly couldn't walk. He was in pain. He is now happy and having loads of fun over the rainbow bridge.Ben arrived at the shelter as you see him - an older dog who is covered in skin issues and growths. Ben also has the beginning stages of cataracts.

  Lindy Pit bull Terrier Mix Medium Young Female URGENT! DONATIONS NEEDED! HW+  - 1 year old. Has skin issues. Good with dogs and cats. Just wants to have fun!

 Zeus Pit Bull Terrier/American Bulldog Mix Extra Large Young Male RESCUED! 1 year old, 65lbs. and tall. Good with other dogs and kids. Knows command. Plays catch.

Cheyenne Border Collie Mix Medium SENIOR Female RESCUED! 12 years old. Being in such a loud, chaotic environment is so hard on older dogs and often they shut down. This sweet girl needs a home with a fluffy bed to nap on and a family that will pamper her. She is healthy overall but does have some stiffness in her hips. Joint supplements would benefit her greatly and should restore some of her spunk within a few weeks. Cheyenne previously lived with other dogs and did fine with them but she doesn't seem to appreciate having cats around at all. She also has been around kids of all ages and seems to do well although we always recommend older kids for senior dogs. Spayed and current on vaccines.

Ginger Pit Bull Terrier Mix Large SENIOR Female URGENT! HW+

Dottie Pit Bull Terrier Medium Young Female - DEAF! Dottie is a blue-eyed beauty that is eager to find a forever home, but she needs a home willing to make a commitment to keeping her. At only a year old, this girl has already been in THREE homes and is now at the shelter, not due to any fault of her own any of the times. Dottie does seem to be very hard of hearing or partially (maybe even completely) deaf but it does not slow her down a bit! This girl is a total sweetheart and deserves a loving family who will treat her like the princess she is. Dottie is great with other dogs, adores kids and lived happily with a cat. Please do not pass this girl up if you are looking for a furry addition to your family!

Rosie Treeing Walker Coonhound Large Adult Female  HW+  - 2 years old. Good with dogs and children.For a female coonhound, Rosie is fairly good sized. She loves people, and like most hounds, would love an active, outdoors adventure type home! And don't forget the kids! Rosie would love a home with lots of kiddo's to play ball with!

Emmett Terrier Mix Small Adult Male RESCUE ONLY! Don't let that adorable little puggy face fool ya'...Emmitt is a little rascal! This guy is a little Dennis the Menace, in short legged form! Emmitt is rescue only for one reason; he wasn't taught proper door manners, so every time a door opens, he darts out. And once out, he believes anything, anyone (be it rabbit, leaf, or human) is HIS playtoy. He will chase, and chase, and chase (kinda like the energizer bunny...) anything that moves, and sadly, he has bitten a couple of people. We do not believe these bites were malicious...we believe he just becomes engrossed in his prey drive and forgets himself. Here in the shelter he's a GREAT little dog. He loves his humans, gets along well with other dogs, and that little tail just never stops wagging! Emmitt will need a rescue that understands not only strong prey drive driven dogs, but one that will also teach Emmitt what is acceptable, and what is not!

June Domestic Short Hair Mix Medium Adult Female

Sheila Domestic Long Hair Mix Medium Adult Female URGENT! Rescue needed asap for this gorgeous, long haired solid white cat! She arrived at the shelter as a stray, and had obviously been on her own for quite some time! She was missing large portions of her hair, has a serious upper respiratory infection, and is just as sweet as can be! Sheila will need lots of TLC to get her back in good health, but she will be well worth it! (Yes, we have shaved all of her fur off due to the severe matting.)
