About Our Shelter:

The Portage County Dog Warden’s Office and Shelter is located in Ravenna, Ohio. The Dog Wardens Office handles everything from Rabies Quarantines, to livestock kill investigations, to enforcing licensing of dogs, and rescuing stray dogs for all of Portage County. We have close to 40-50 dogs in our kennel at any given time, of which most are waiting to find a new home.
The myth that the Portage Co. Dog Warden’s Office and Shelter euthanizes dogs after so many days is false. We only euthanize dogs for aggression, Vicious Dogs, and/or Illness, no time limit. Many dogs pass through our door on a yearly basis from owner surrenders to dogs found as strays, all looking for a good loving family to adopt them. Last year alone we had about 700 dogs come through our shelter.
All of the dogs that come through our shelter receive a heartworm test (if old enough), a distemper/parvo Vaccine (if old enough), Kennel cough vaccine, and a rabies vaccine (if old enough).
The Portage County Dog Warden’s Office and Shelter does not receive funding from the state or county (tax money). We survive solely on what is donated and funds from dog licenses.

If you are interested in a dog call us. We cannot provide transportation for the rescues or the citizens. We work with many rescues and other agencies to try placing as many dogs as we can into loving homes as well as provide a safe community for residents from stray or vicious dogs.

Our Adoption Process:

The adoption fee starts at $87 and includes a license. Every dog is vaccinated with a parvo/distemper, bordatella and rabies and micro-chip. Rabies cannot be given to puppies under 3 months of age, that must be done when old enough. The parvo/distemper booster is necessary 4 weeks from the first vaccination. A heartworm test is done on all adult dogs.

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.
