The animal shelter is a shelter that only appears in the episode "Plankton's Pet."



The outside of the animal shelter has a pretty rough design being made of rusting metal. It also has barbed wire at the very top and the place's name written in the middle in black text.


The inside of the animal shelter resembles almost the inside of a prison. It has many cages that keeps the animals locked away in.


SpongeBob apparently bought Gary at the animal shelter.
