About Our Shelter:

We are The Guernsey County Dog Pound. We are a pound and NOT a shelter. Unfortunately euthanasia takes place at our facility. Our facility is county run. Unfortunately this means dog only have a short time with us before we are forced to destroy them. We welcome anyone interested in adopting a dog. We are always getting new dogs in. We get them in every shape and size, and they are usually just looking to have someone to love.

We are rescue friendly!

We always are in need of donations, both monitary and items such as food, treats, toys, bedding, collars and leashes.

VOLUNTEERS are always NEEDED to come and walk the dogs. Please call for more information

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
