Another Dog Saved by Friends of the Shelter!

This shy boy came to the dog shelter very scared and unsure of people but thanks to some special volunteers in our shy dog program, he was motivated to give humans a second chance (smelly tasty treats are always a good place to start) and it was a win-win situation for everyone ... that is until he tested positive for heartworm disease. Thankfully Friends of the Shelter teamwork paid for his heartworm treatment over the last few months.

Harold is now a happy, healthy, and heartworm-free guy who is looking for a dog bed, a yard, and a family of his own. He can still be unsure in new situations so a home with an experienced dog owner with kids over 8 would be best.

Harold is crate trained (but doesn't need to be) and housebroken. He is good with other dogs and most cats but doesn't like to share his water bowl so being an only child would work just fine for him as well. Vet reference required. If you are interested in meeting Harold, please submit your completed adoption application to Erin at ekfrost@franklincountyohio.gov or via fax to 614-525-6658. Once received and processed, we will put you in touch with Harold's 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, May 4.

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.
