Thank you for your interest in learning more about our open admission animal shelter. Our dedicated cleaners & volunteers are on site 7 days a week caring for and receiving new animals in need, returning pets to owners, and finding new loving homes via private adoptions and rescue placement. Please always leave a voicemail at 740-622-9741 if you are in need of assistance. 

Due to staffing shortages and being an underfunded, rural facility we are primarily by appointment. Please listen to our voicemail, browse our website for day to day operations updates, and follow us on Facebook to learn more about us and what we can do to meet your needs. 

Our Director is an unpaid position and completely voluntary. We are a volunteer based organization, with only two part time paid cleaners. We are not county employees. The dog wardens are a separate office, we house those intakes here. 

As an open admission cat shelter and county dog pound, we receive a high volume of animals in need. We are not a no-kill shelter. We operate the animal shelter for dogs, cats, and other various animals in need and serve both our county and surrounding area counties as space allows. We continue to have wonderful save rates from our dog pound, thanks to the efforts of our team. 

We are located on Morgan Run Road, Coshocton County (Ohio) We have contracted with the county and have operated the animal shelter and “dog pound” for over 50 years. We are not affiliated in any way with the Coshocton County Humane Society. 

We deeply appreciate your support as we continue to provide an open admission cat shelter and serve our counties dogs and out of county “turn aways” each week. Our 501c3 nonprofit provides services to owned pets, strays, individuals in need of pet food, and connections to affordable spay and neuter.
