We need some compassionate members of the community who are willing to open their hearts and homes to a few good homeless animals. If you're interested in becoming a part of our foster home network, please visit our website and fill out our volunteer form!


The next Rascal date is set for April 22, 2012, and we are currently taking appointments. Our next scheduled date is May 20, 2012.

Rascal comes to Ashland thanks to the Humane Society, and offers several services, including spaying, neutering, vaccinations, microchipping, and more, at a low cost. Please call the Humane Society at 419-281-4722 to set up an appointment which you need to take advantage of this wonderful service!


We need YOUR help! We've got the land, it's prepped and ready, and now we need to build. We so desperately want to get the building process going under way. The sooner we can raise funds to build the sooner we have a location for our counties homeless animals. The humane society is operated only on the donations and kindness of you people in the community. We receive NO tax dollars for operation!!! You can donate one of 3 ways; click the Paypal button and make a donation (link is currently having issues, this will be resolved soon!), send a check to any PNC Bank (donations sent directly to the bank are deposited directly in to our account and we never see them, and have no way of knowing who make the donation to thank them) or send a donation to P.O. 114 Ashland, Ohio 44805.

Who We Are

The Ashland County Humane Society is a non-profit, tax exempt, volunteer based organization, with NO facility, dedicated to the welfare of animals in the Ashland County area.

Independent of the Ashland County Dog Shelter, the Humane Society relies greatly on our network of foster homes, and local animal welfare advocates and organizations.

The society funds itself through its own fund-raising efforts, animal surrender and adoption fees, and the generosity of the local community. All members of the Board of Directors and committees are unpaid volunteers.


The Ashland County Humane Society takes in homeless cats and kittens, caring for them until they can be adopted into loving homes. We do not yet have a shelter, so all of our cats are housed in volunteer foster homes while awaiting adoption.

All of our cats are feline leukemia tested & FIV tested, wormed, micro chipped, receive vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered prior to being placed up for adoption. We charge an adoption fee of $75 for each cat or kitten to offset veterinary costs.

If you would like to adopt one of our cats or kittens, or if you would like to volunteer as a foster home, please leave a message on our answering service at 419-281-4722.


The Ashland County Humane Society also works with the Mansfield Correctional Institute to help homeless dogs in need. Dogs enrolled in the program are housed at the prison, and are cared for by specially selected inmates, who also train the dogs.

A professional dog trainer works with the inmates, teaching them how to train the dogs, who learn basic obedience and are housebroken, making them easier to adopt into families.

All of the dogs receive vaccinations and are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. An adoption fee of $165 helps to offset veterinary expenses.

If you are interested in adopting any of the prison dogs, please email and include a phone number in which we can reach you.

Dog: $165 includes spay/neuter, deworming, DHLPP, Bordatella vaccinations, Rabies if old enough, a dog liscense, and the completion of the "Cell Dog Program" if applicable.

Since we do not have a building we will only be able to accept animals based on space. We are sorry about this.
Per Cat: $25

If the owner can provide health records showing the animals are spayed or neutered and up to date on all vaccinations, the surrender fee may be waived.
