So you're looking for a new pet? Well, you're looking in the right place! Here at the Paragould Dog Pound, we have a lot of great dogs. The only hard part is picking which one(s) you want to take home!

All adoptions from our shelter will include:

  • Spay or Neuter
  • Rabies vaccination

When considering adoption, it is important to consider the type of dog that would best fit your family and lifestyle.

Things to consider before you adopt:


The following are some things that we feel you should take into consideration before you adopt a dog. These issues are not meant to discourage you, but to prepare you and help your pet receive the best home it deserves.

  • Will someone be able to care for the animal at all times? Even during unexpected hours?
  • Will you be able to provide loving affection to your pet? Dogs are sociable by nature and they deserve the same treatment in return.
  • Can you provide a proper environment for your pet? A good warm and dry structure to live in and the proper fencing to ensure that the animal will stay on your property?
  • Can you afford the food, entertainment, medical care and other special needs that your pet will require?

Note about adoptable pets:

  • Please, do not be discouraged if you see an animal on the website and learn that he/she has already been adopted. We are happy that he/she found a new home! There may be another one that you will like just as much!
  • We are unable to hold animals by phone, fax or email.
