Thank you for your interest in learning more about our open admission animal shelter. Our dedicated cleaners & volunteers are on site daily 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.  We often have one individual on site each day responsible for cleaning, intakes, office management, and on call. We are a volunteer based organization.

As an open admission cat shelter and county dog pound, we receive a high volume of animals in need. We operate the animal shelter for dogs, cats, and other various animals in need and serve both our county and surrounding area counties. We are located on Morgan Run Road here in Coshocton County. We have contracted with the county and have operated the animal shelter and “dog pound” for over 50 years. We deeply appreciate your support as we continue to provide an open admission environment for animals in need. Our 501c3 nonprofit provides services to owned pets, strays, individuals in need of pet food, spay and neuter & affordable pet care services, and veterinary care assistance case by case.
