About the Shelter
The current Catawba County Animal Shelter was completed in 1985 and constructed at a cost of nearly $300,000. It is a totally enclosed facility, meaning no animal sheltered is being exposed to the weather. The Animal Shelter was designed with separate quarters for male and female dogs, and an area specifically for cats.

The Animal Shelter is thoroughly ventilated with collapsible vents on each wall with ceiling fans in all hallways. On top of the building is a large fan that draws fresh air in through the vents. The Animal Shelter is sanitized on a regular basis and recently installed a new heating and air system in the kennels.
