Adopting A Friend

Please check the Pet List daily for new photos, and call the pound
at 740-533-1736 for the most recent up dates.
Please be respectful to the Dog Warden and his staff. It is their
cooperation that allows dogs to be posted on this site!
The pound is open Monday-Friday from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.
except holidays. And Saturdays from Noon-4.  

There is a adoption fee of $30 for Dogs and $30 for puppies.
All Lawrence County residents must purchase a 2015 Dog License for $12 with the adoption of any dog or puppy.
The pound is not able to comply with requests to hold dogs.
Dogs are adopted out to the public on a first come, first served basis.
This means the first person to actually come to the pound to adopt the dog,
not just see the dog or play with the dog or talk about the dog,
will be the one to receive the dog.


Please be aware that pound dogs are strays and surrenders and are not evaluated for temperament or health at the pound.
Any dog from any pound may be exposed to parvo and other contagious diseases and should be isolated
from other pets and pet areas until seen by your vet and the incubation period has passed.
