Delaware County Dog Shelter

Our Adoptable Pet List


Our Featured Pet...

All of our dogs listed need loving, forever homes.

Who We Are

We are a county operated dog shelter with the hopes of finding permanent homes for our unwanted and stray adoptable dogs. It is the philosophy of the Shelter that quality far outweighs quantity. We do not want the dog to come back because of irresponsible ownership. Most people choosing a pet from a shelter have done so with the desire to provide a forever home to an unwanted stray. Careful screening of those wishing to adopt can help guarantee a successful, lifetime placement with a responsible owner.

Make a Donation

Our shelter is always in need of donations. Some of the top items on our wish list are paper towels, new and gently used towels and blankets, office supplies, garden hoses, gift cards from local stores (e.i. WalMart, Office City) and dog related items such as dog biscuits, 2 quart stainless steel dog dishes, collars and leashes.

Adopting a friend

Our adoption fee is $18.00 which includes the cost of a dog tag. We strive to keep our availability list current, but before driving a long distance for a specific dog, please call to check if the animal is still here.
