About Our Shelter:

The Muskingum County Dog Pound & Kennel is responsible for answering calls from the general public about dogs running loose or at large in the Muskingum County area. The dog warden picks up the animal and brings it back to the dog pound/kennel. The dog is kept at the pound/kennel for 3 days. If the owner doesn't claim the dog, then the dog is officially up for adoption. The Muskingum County Dog Pound & Kennel receives several dogs weekly. Unfortunately, our facility can only hold so many dogs at one time and euthanasia is the only option. Many dogs only have a few weeks to live. Our goal, with your help, is to adopt as many dogs as possible into loving homes or to rescue groups. Please have your pets spayed or neutered.

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.
