Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

The Humane Society of Columbiana County provides service to all of Columbiana County. We investigate allegations of animal neglect and cruelty. The majority of our adoptable dogs and cats come from humane agent involvement, however, when space and foster homes permit, we will pull animals from high-kill pounds / shelters or accept an owner surrender.

About Our Shelter:

The Humane Society of Columbiana County, Inc. (HSCC) is an independent non-profit organization which relies solely on private donations and is not afflilated with nor supported by any governmental or national entity. HSCC strives to improve the quality of life for homeless, abused and neglected animals. We promote responsible animal ownership in Columbiana County by educating the public about proper veterinary care and animal welfare issues. We sponsor trained, sworn volunteer humane agents who strive to educate and assist pet owners and when necessary act to ensure the well-being of an animal. Along with preventing the euthanasia of adoptable companion animals we provide programs that aid in the reduction of pet over-population. Our goal is to adopt companion and domesticated animals into lifelong homes. Through education and assistance programs the Humane Society of Columbiana County has as its goal the accomplishment of making Columbiana County Ohio’s first “No-Kill” county.

Our Adoption Process:

- Complete a pre-adoption application (can be sent via e-mail if the potential adopter is traveling some distance to visit our shelter pets). There is no obligation to adopt when filling out this application. It is a tool we use to help us determine the pet best suited for your household and lifestyle.
- Meet with an Adoption Counselor to go over the application and discuss the animal you are considering. If you have other pets in the household, they would be introduced to the pet you are considering at this point to assess compatibility.
- A vet check is done by our staff to confirm that all current and former pets are spayed/neutered, current on vaccinations and on heartworm prevention. If you are renting, a landlord check is also required to confirm that pets are permitted and if there are any pet type/breed/size/weight restrictions.
- If everything looks like a great fit, the adoption is nearly complete! Our adoption counselors will schedule a home visit, at which time the adopted pet has the potential to stay with you if all goes well.

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, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
