Story
MOLLY, a 2 year old black German Shepherd mix lost the only home she has ever known when she was surrendered to our pound by her family because she liked to bolt out of an open door. MOLLY is housebroken, spayed, and crate trained. She is timid around people she doesn't know and will give a low growl to let them know that she doesn't want to be forced to meet a new person. If you let her be and offer her a snack or two, she will warm up once she trusts you. MOLLY does like to follow people she trusts around. She is playful, loves to go for long walks, and cuddle with you on the couch. We think MOLLY will do best in a home without a lot of yelling. She needs a calm environment to be comfortable. MOLLY gets along with other dogs, should not be placed in a home with little kids (10 and up is fine), and doesn't like cats. Harrison County Dog Pound, 82900 Toot Rd. Cadiz, OH. Open: Monday-Friday 10am-4pm; Sat. 9am-2pm, Closed Sundays and holidays. Apply to adopt in person or online at harrisoncountydogvolunteers.org. PLEASE NOTE THAT APPLE USERS MUST ACCESS AND SUBMIT APPLICATION USING GOOGLE, NOT SAFARI. Out of state adoptions are welcomed. $40 adoption fee. 740-942-4080

Story
Zoie is 2 1/2 years old, and I have had her since she was 10 weeks old. She is a great family pet, has always been good around kids and cats, she can be reactive towards dogs that come off aggressive such as running up to her barking and biting at her. She has show reactiveness towards strangers but if I talk to them she seems to calm down, she's protective. I'm unfortunately worried about being able to care for her needs as I work a part time job and I'm enrolled in school full time and I find myself becoming busier with every semester that passes. She is an active dog that loves to be outdoors. She is also very loving towards my family, even those who don't live with me and greets them with kisses anytime they make an appearance. I'm looking to avoid putting her in a shelter as I love her and only want the best kind of person to be able to care for her.

Story
**WE ARE CURRENTLY DOING ADOPTIONS BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. YOU MUST CALL TO SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT IF YOU'RE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING. PLEASE LEAVE US A VOICEMAIL IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO REACH US. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE AND UNDERSTANDING.- CCDP STAFF** Hi there. My name is Chester. I'm about 1 year old and I weigh about 52 lbs. I was found as a stray in the Homeworth area around mid-October and I was picked up by the pound. When I first came in, I was unsocialized and I was fearful of everyone and everything. Through some hard work on the part of the volunteers and employees here at the pound, I am making a huge turn around. I am learning slowly learning that humans are pretty cool, and that I don't need to fear everything new, because some of the new stuff is pretty cool too. I have learned how to walk on a leash since I've came into the pound. That was pretty scary for me at first, but I have made wonderful progress. I am an affectionate boy and I like to give hugs when I am scared, or just when I would like some attention. I can be a bit on the vocal side, especially when I am on walks or in my kennel not getting attention, but I am trying to learn how to be a good boy. I will need a patient family willing to work with me on housebreaking and training. If you're looking for a sweet dog to add to your family, please consider adopting me. Our adoption fee is $152. We accept cash, check or credit/ debit cards for adoption fees. If you pay using a credit or debit card, a convenience fee of 2.39% will also be applied. If paying by check, you will need 2. One Check will be for the dog license, and one will be for your dog's adoption fee, which includes heartworm testing (for dogs 6 months of age old and older), parvo/distemper vaccine, rabies vaccine, bordetella vaccine, 3 days of panacur de-wormer, spay or neuter surgery, microchip, and a current Ohio dog license. We DO offer foster to adopt. (We will NOT accept cash for foster to adopt). We highly recommend you do a foster to adopt with your new dog if you are not 100% sure your new dog is going to work out in your home. Foster to adopt gives you a couple of weeks with the dog to make sure they are a good fit with your family before your payment is processed and the adoption is finalized. ALL DOGS/PUPPIES WILL BE SPAYED OR NEUTERED unless a health issue prohibits the surgery from being performed. Not all dogs posted for adoption are spayed/ neutered yet. If you're driving a long distance to adopt, please verify that the vetting process has been completed and dog you're interested in adopting is still available for adoption. The above mentioned vetting is all included in your adoption fee. The adoption fee and what is included in the adoption fee is NON-NEGOTIABLE. Adoptions MUST be done at the pound and in person as there is paperwork to fill out and an adoption contract that must be signed by the adopter. This means you must be willing to travel to our shelter to adopt. If the dog you're interested in adopting has medical conditions or injuries which require medical treatment, we ask that you help with the medical bills, in addition to their adoption fee if possible so we can continue to help the dogs coming in who need additional vet care. We are a county run shelter, therefore we cannot control our intake or the health or behavior of the dogs that come in to our shelter. Although we try our hardest to place all of our adoptable dogs, there are certain circumstances in which any dog in our care could be euthanized at any time and without further notice (IE: sudden untreatable medical condition or injury, temperament or behavioral problems which may not be apparent when the dog first arrives, etc.), therefore all dogs at our shelter should be considered urgent. We try our absolute hardest to never have to euthanize for space and have not had to do so for many years thanks to the ongoing support from the public and high adoption rates. Please remember; the adoption of a more highly adoptable dog will mean more time for the less adoptable dog in the kennel next to him! Shelter hours are Monday-Friday: 8 am- 4 pm. Saturday, Sunday and holidays: 8 am - 12 pm. Adoptions are always welcome any day of the week/ weekend and on holidays. We are here everyday to care for the dogs and the best way to make our day is to see our dogs go to loving families. There is nobody in the office on Saturday, Sunday or holidays, so therefore, we are unable to answer or return phone calls over the weekend. We are only staffed to take care of the dogs and do adoptions over the weekends/ on holidays. Can't adopt a dog? We would love to have more volunteers who are able to spend time with our dogs! The dogs LOVE going for walks and the socialization and exercise helps make the dogs more adoptable.
