Our Adoption Process:

The Adoption Process

The Tuscarawas County Humane Society takes great care in placing the animals at our shelter into safe, comfortable and loving homes. Our simple three-step adoption process helps us determine the compatibility and safety of our adoptable animals and their new families.

Submit an online application. Be sure to contact the shelter to verify the approval of your application by calling 330-343-6060 or stopping at our facility located at 6895 Dover Zoar Rd, Dover Ohio 44622.

We have new animals arriving daily with no prior health history and, although we do not have a veterinarian on staff, we do our best to ensure that the pets we adopt are healthy.
Make arrangements to pick up your new pet from the shelter following the adoption approval.
We encourage making an appointment with your veterinarian for your new pet. If a condition should develop which requires veterinarian intervention, you need to discuss with your vet the options, possible fees involved, if he/she has a payment plan, etc. ALL ADOPTED puppies or kittens MUST BE SPAYED or NEUTERED at an appropriate age!

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.
