The shelter was built in 1998 and added onto in 2003. The shelter is currently 32 feet wide x 100 feet long. It has two offices, a handicap accessible restroom, 34 dog kennels, 19 cages for cats and a room for storage of traps, food and equipment. With the addition to the building we added a room with a washer and a dryer and another room with a shower, plus a tub for washing animals. Both these rooms have storage space on top of them.
The Blue Bayou Animal Shelter was probably the first shelter, in this area, that supported our surrounding towns. It was located between Nashville and Lockesburg, on HWY 371, and provided a service to the towns and county for a fee. The shelter received so many strays and unwanted pets, but not enough money to keep the service going, so eventually shut down.
In 1997 the following towns, Dierks, Mineral Springs, Murfreesboro, Nashville and Tollette, were still having a problem with strays and pets running at large, so they decided to put their funds together and establish their own city shelter.
Currently, the following towns are serviced by the shelter:
Nashville, Delight, Dierks, Mineral Springs, Murfreesboro, Prescott, and Washington.
