Pike Pet Pals
The ONLY organization helping the dogs at the Pike County Dog Pound


Pike Pet Pals is an all volunteer organization devoted to aiding dogs at the pound and providing rescue and adoption services. Volunteers have no official capacity and do not manage the facility. We function with the permission of the county commissioners and the Pike County Sheriff Office. ALL CALLS REGARDING STRAY DOGS SHOULD BE MADE TO THE DOG WARDEN AT 740-947-5996
PLEASE HELP!! Garrett looking for a new family. He is very active and loves to play. Come to the pound and check him out! Donations to help Pike Pound Dogs get vaccinations, veterinary care, emergency boarding and transport as well as funds to help sponsor Spay/Neuter Clinics may be sent to: Pike Pet Pals, Inc., P.O. Box 1239, Waverly, OH 45690, or you may click the donate button. Donations are tax-deductible.

For information about dogs or puppies or in order to adopt a dog please contact us at 740-708-3905. THERE IS NO "PULL FEE" FOR APPROVED RESCUES.

ADOPTION FEES ARE $50.00 PER DOG/PUPPY, higher for a fully vetted animal. This includes a dog license for Pike County residents. Exact cash only. The dog pound does not accept checks, credit cards or debit cards.

PUPPIES ARE AVAILABLE TO APPROVED RESCUES AT ANY TIME. Our funding for veterinary care is limited but we make every effort to send healthy dogs and pups on Rescue transports. We highly recommend taking your rescued/adopted dog or puppy to your veterinarian as soon as possible after rescue/adoption as we often do not know their health backgrounds.

Rescues: If you require veterinary services before transport, this can be arranged through our veterinarians.

Thanks 1-800-PetMeds for the donation of flea and tick medication for the adoptable dogs!

We are in constant need of the following supplies:

  1. Dry dog food
  2. Dry puppy food
  3. Dog leashes
  4. Dog collars with metal buckle
  5. Disinfecting bleach
  6. Old towels and washclothes

News from Pike Pet Pals, Inc.

We're now on Face Book. Come visit and tell us you like what we're doing.

With the help of Columbus Dog Connection we helped spay and neuter 100 dogs in Pike county this year! It has helped cut down the number of puppies in the pound! Pike Pet Pals, Inc., a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization, helps pay for inoculations and basic veterinary care of Pike County Dog Pound dogs and puppies. It also maintains a fund for emergency veterinary care for Pike Pound dogs.

Tax deductible donations may be sent to Pike Pet Pals, Inc. P.O. Box 1239, Waverly, OH 45690. If you want to help supply dog food and veterinary care for dogs at the Pike County Dog Pound, click on the Donate button above and give whatever you can afford via PayPal.


SPAY or NEUTER your pets. Every year HUNDREDS of unwanted puppies come into the Pound because dogs were not spayed or neutered. This is the NUMBER ONE way you can help! Spayed or neutered dogs stay healthier, have better temperaments and tend not to wander away.

LICENSING your dog helps us find YOU if your dog is lost or stolen. Licenses may be purchased at the Pike County Dog Pound or the Pike County Auditor's Office.

PLEASE ADOPT OR RESCUE from the Pike County Dog Pound. We have many puppies and dogs coming in every day. We are a small, rural pound with very limited space. All of these wonderful dogs and puppies are in need of new homes or rescues as soon as possible. We try our best to hold dogs for as long as possible and make every attempt to place dogs and puppies into loving homes or rescues. We are very adopter and rescue friendly. Please contact us at 740-708-3905 to adopt a dog!

We would like to thank Chillicothe Animal Clinic for their support. Dr. Beth Picklesimer helps with vetting the pound dogs. Our dogs are very lucky to have such a caring group to look over them!
