Caring for impounded, abandoned, stray, & surrendered pets in
Tobacco Valley Animal Shelter is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that was established on January 1, 2008, negotiating a contract with the Lincoln County Health Department to ensure all adoptable pets were signed over to TVAS after 3 days, instead of being euthanized. The contract also requires us to house and care for stray, surrendered and impounded animals in Eureka.
We leased the decades old dilapidated animal shelter near the river walk from the county for 2 years and then in 2010 were able to build a brand new facility north of town where we are currently located.
In 2013 we expanded our contract with the county to service the south end of the county (Libby and Troy) and opened the Tobacco Valley Animal Shelter, Libby facility.
We are proud to say that we have had over 9,300 pets through our shelter doors since that time, as well as provide thousands of pounds of pet food to community pets and facilitate over 5,000 spay/neuter surgeries for the owned pets of Lincoln County residents.
We are truly living our Mission Statement of "Improving the lives of pets and people in Lincoln County and beyond"!
Tobacco Valley Animal Shelter hosts three fundraising events per year in the spring, fall, and winter. If you are interested in participating please stay tuned for updates regarding upcoming and most recent events on our Home page as well as on our Facebook page.
