Our vision is to be a valuable resource for the Hamilton County, Ohio community – reuniting lost companion pets, reducing the stray population, offering opportunities for unwanted animals to be adopted or rescued and providing the public with information and programs for responsible pet ownership. Such a shelter will be a source of pride and a tremendous asset for Hamilton County.
1.) Look online at our adoptable dogs, cats, and other animals.
2.) Call the shelter to schedule an appointment to meet the animal.
3.) Complete an adoption application at the shelter.
4.) Upon approval, pay the adoption fee. If you’re a Hamilton County resident, you’ll also be required to purchase a state of Ohio dog license at the shelter
5.) Take your new furry friend home! Collars and leashes are available for sale at the shelter for your new dog. A crate can be rented for a $25 deposit. A cardboard carrier can be purchased for $5 for your new cat.
