Pickaway County Dog Shelter
The new Pickaway County Dog Shelter has been completed. Please stop by and see our brand new 42 kennel facility. The new facility is complete with a bathing/grooming area, a medical room and a seperate quarantine area.
The new shelter was made possible by generous donations by community members and Partners for Paws, a 501c3 non-profit group raising money for the shelter.
Who we are!
The Pickaway County Dog Shelter is a non-profit, county operated shelter that is funded only by revenue from the sale of dog tags and fees from adoptions of our furry friends.
