Our corporate name is “Animal Shelter Action Society, Inc.”.  We are a 501 (c) (3) corporation, formed in 1991, for the purpose of constructing and maintaining an animal shelter for Mayfield and Graves County, Kentucky. We provide both animal control and sheltering services for the City of Mayfield and shelter services only for the County. 

In addition to the above services, we receive domestic household pets at no charge from any resident of Mayfield or Graves County.  We retain in the shelter, as many animals as is financially and physically feasible, offering them for adoption to the general public.  Prior to adoption, all animals are tested, given appropriate vaccinations, microchip implants and spayed or neutered.  Our adoption fees are structured to only recover out costs.  Where funds are available, special medical treatments are provided for animals considered to be adoptable.  We also maintain small reserve funds to assist individuals who need one-time assistance (such as apartment pet deposits) and to assist persons who persistently bring litters to have their female spayed.  Our annual animal intake average is approximately 2,500.  Adoptions vary each year from 300 to 500.  We work with several rescue organizations to place as many animals as possible.  We currently partner with KY Humane in Louisville, KY which takes all of our healthy puppies and many small and special needs dogs.  Despite our efforts, some animals still must be euthanized.

In an effort to reduce the number of stray and unwanted animals in our service area, we provide low cost spay/neuter for low income families as funds become available.

We enjoy tremendous community support and taking our responsibility seriously, strive to provide a facility which deserves that support.  Animals entering our shelter are given humane treatment in the best environment we are able to provide.
