Animal Shelter

 

Welcome to the Iron County Animal Shelter web page. This shelter was established in 2009. The Iron County Sheriff’s Office is proud to provide this service for the residents of Iron County who rely on the Iron County Government for their animal control needs. The majority of this shelter was constructed by inmates of the Iron County Correctional Facility and inmates are used to clean the shelter and take care of the animals 7 days a week. This program helps save tax payer dollars.

The Iron County Animal Shelter is a “No Kill” shelter. We rely heavily on volunteers to help us find good homes for the animals that end up in our shelter. The Iron County Sheriff’s Office has partnered with Best Friends Animal Rescue, Pet Finder and several other animal rescues in the area to help us find good homes for animals that have been abandoned by their owners. We encourage animal owners to spay and neuter their pets so we can avoid dealing with the large numbers of stray and unwanted animals that end up in our shelter.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer for the Iron County Animal Shelter please call us at 435-867-7500 or use the volunteer information provided on this web page.
