About Our Shelter:The Marion County Dog Pound is a county facility that is ran by the Marion County Sheriff's Office. Since the Sheriff's Office took over at the first of the year, we have became a no-kill facility. We are doing our best to maintain a no-kill environment and are working diligently to help and re-home every dog that comes through our doors. To do this we need the help of our community. Volunteers are welcome to come out at any time!
