- Q. Do you have avolunteer program?

- A.  Several years ago, we did have volunteer                       assistance but as you read this, we do not have             any programs for volunteers or any plans to                   reinstate this in the future. ​

- Q.I have araccoon, possum, ground hog,             etc., on my property that is causing damage!             Can you come and trap it? 
- A. These types of creatures are considered                      "NUISANCE WILDLIFE" and must be handled by a          completely different type of animal control                specialist. Please call a certified  "Nuisance                  Wildlife Removal Expert"  or professional                      trapper.  Sorry, we are only licensed to handle              DOMESTIC ANIMALS. If you see a WILD or                      ENDANGERED animal in  distress (Hawk, Eagle,            etc). call: (270) 384 -4796 for Wildlife animal              inquiries. 

- Q. Can I bring my children in to see how            they might interact with an animal before                  adoption?  

- A. YES! We welcome families and their children of             any age to come in and socialize with a pet you           wish to adopt.

 

- Q. Are you a humane society?   
- A. No, MCAS is not a Humane Society.

      Humane Societies are usually "no kill" shelters               whereas Animal Shelters do euthanize depending           on time and space needs or when absolutely                 necessary. We consider ourselves a "low kill"                 shelter. 

        

Spay/Neuter: 

There is no Spay/Neuter program at the shelter. Please contact your local vet for the procedure. All Shelter animals must be spayed or neutered as part of the adoption process.  READ MORE

- Q. Does the Shelter install Micro Chips

       in animals? 

- A. We are not able to do this. If you wish to                      have one placed in your animal, please call a                veterinarian. 


Q. Someone told me that you euthanize               animals within a short period of         time after you receive them. Is this true?
A. There is no specific time table for euthanization at        MCAS it is based on space constraints as well as            the overall health of the animal.
 

MCAS is a county-run facility. We work with the general public and rescue groups all over the country to find homes for as many animals as possible.
