After Fort Smith was left with no animal shelter in 2019, a group of concerned citizens came together to found the Kitties and Kanines Shelter. We believe in combatting the animal overpopulation crisis in the community all while remaining a no-kill shelter. In our first few months of being open, we have rescued and rehomed hundreds of animals and transported many more to other non-kill shelters.
Our mission is to provide non-lethal solutions to the homeless, abandoned, and feral animal population of Fort Smith, Arkansas. We will do this through reunifying animals with their owners, adopting animals to new families, or transporting animals to different areas where they can be adopted.
