Pets at Our Rescue Group:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:We are a small group of Athens County, Ohio, citizens dedicated to the welfare and rescue of dogs from the Athens County Dog Shelter.
About Our Rescue Group:All the dogs in our care are medically checked by a veterinarian, given all their immunizations and are spayed/neutered before being adopted into loving homes. We also contribute to the medical welfare of dogs remaining in the shelter by donating vaccines or pay for veterinary expenses when the need arises and we have the ability to do so.
We work to place dogs with no-kill rescue groups or find caring foster homes and adopt dogs out ourselves.
Our Adoption Process:Adopting a dog from the Friends of the Shelter Dogs will require an adoption fee and the signing of an adoption contract. All dogs are medically checked by a veterinarian and given all needed medications and immunizations. No dog will be adopted out that has not already been spayed or neutered. We also have our dogs heartwormed tested and put on Frontline flea and tick treatment.
An at-home visit will be conducted during the adoption process. We try our best to make sure the dogs personality fits with your family...and if we don't have a dog that suits you....we encourage you to visit the Athens County Dog Shelter to find one that does.
