Another Dog Saved by Friends of the Shelter

Petey is a friendly guy looking for a happy ending. Lilly and Petey survived the Morrow County floods tied to their dog boxes initially and then had to be evacuated from the dog shelter when the flood waters continued to rise. Both were discovered to be heartworm positive when they arrived at FCDS and Petey was diagnosed with a debilitating injury to his throat and knee, all consequences of the harsh life they spent chained outside.

FCDS and Friends of the Shelter saw these dogs through six months of medical care, and now Petey is healthy and ready for a bright future. His pal Lilly has already been adopted.

Petey would love a new home with a fenced yard (Petey can NEVER wear a collar again, harness only).He is crate trained, housebroken, enjoys people of all ages and sizes, and will chase cats. Established vet reference required for adoption.

If you are interested in meeting Petey, please submit your completed application, including your vet reference information, to Erin at ekfrost@franklincountyohio.gov or via fax at 614-525-6658. Once your application has been received and processed, we will send your contact information on to his foster mom to arrange a meeting.

Mingle With Our Mutts

Our twice-monthly adoption event with shelter dogs and many area rescue groups is a great place to search for a new best friend.

Held the first and third Sunday afternoon of the month at the shelter, from noon to 2 pm.

You don't need to wait for Mingle With Our Mutts to visit us, we're open seven days a week!

Next Mingle is Sunday, October 19.

Adoption Statistics

Did you know that the average dog spends just 7 days in the shelter?

Beginning with the day the dog arrives, it is checked out in the clinic, behavior-tested, spayed or neutered and placed on our adoption floor, and eventually adopted. Puppies disappear even more quickly!

Check our website for dogs currently available for adoption.

News & Information

Happy Endings

After a dog leaves the shelter, we love to hear stories and see pictures of how they are doing in their new homes. Check out our new "Happy Endings" photo album featuring dogs who have been adopted from the Franklin County Dog Shelter, and see how happy they look now that they have found a forever home. If you have adopted a dog from us and would like to be featured in our album, message us a photo of your dog and tell us how they are doing!
