Come Meet Knox County Humane Society (Ohio)'s Pets

Our cat shelter is located at 400 Columbus Road, Mount Vernon, Ohio. The main floor of the building includes a welcoming lobby and the primary adoption room. There, cats are housed in cat “condos”, each of which includes generous space for a litter box, food, and water, plus an upper level loft. There is plenty of room for each cat to lounge plus a more private retreat area. If a visitor/potential adopter wishes to interact with a particular animal, a staff member will bring the cat to the bonding room where the two can get better acquainted.

Open 11 am to 4 pm M, T, Th, F,
Closed Wed. and Sun.
