We believe in responsible adoption processes, and put a great deal of resources, time, and love into our shelter animals. 

Please keep in mind the status of an animal can change quickly (most often an owner claims/redeems, other application submissions result in quick adoption, or exit via rescue/transfer networking) It is imperative to have the inquiry form turned into volunteers quickly to be considered for future or current pets, and that you follow up when an animal of interest is posted. Any questions or concerns can be directed to 740-622-9741. Please watch our Facebook page for adoptable pets. Thank you for your interest in adoption!

Please note we do not always know what kind of home environment our animals were living in (kids, dogs or cats) nor do we know if they are house trained unless owner states this at surrender. We do our best to observe in kennel and litter box habits. A majority of what we know is based on our observations while they are in our shelter. We recommend all animals receive a fair adjustment period from shelter to new home life. New cats should be kept in a small side room with food, water, and litter while adjusting to sounds, smells, and other pets/family members. Puppies or young adults should receive multiple daily potty breaks, and we encourage safe kennel and exercise times be decided upon prior to coming home. Puppy pads are also helpful in training stages. 

Thank you to our adopters! Hundreds of animals exit our shelter each year and straight into loving homes! We appreciate you!
