The Shelter belongs to all citizens, and as such we will strive always to encourage responsible pet ownership by spaying, neutering, vaccinating, licensing and by providing education in appropriate care and environment for pets.

The shelter is available BY APPOINTMENT ONLY Monday-Saturday. Please call 435-627-4350 to schedule an appointment.


The St. George Animal Shelter is a city-owned and city-operated animal shelter in St. George, Utah. We try to find good homes for animals that are brought into the shelter.  Our employees are city employees and part of the St. George Police Department.  Animal Service Officers patrol our city and respond to calls for service while our Shelter Technicians tend to the needs of the animals in the shelter. 

St. George Animal Shelter has many wonderful cats, kittens, dogs and pups. All animals adopted are already spayed or neutered and current on vaccinations. Dog adoption fees include a mandatory microchip fee. The animals who are adopted from the shelter receive a free health exam from participating veterinarians in our area within 5 working days of adoption.

The adoption fee for any of the shelter animals is $60 for dogs and $50 for cats, contact us for other animal adoption fees and specials.
