Pet of the Week Featured



Barney is a perfect boy and must be someone's long-lost friend. He is kind, lovable and has the best demeanor ever. He allowed us to handle him and loved the attention - and the toys too. Barney knows commands and he knows his manners too.  If his family doesn't come for him immediately, might this purebred Lab be going home with you? Don't delay ... inquire about this handsome and kind guy today!"

Though it's best to visit in person, when calling to check the availability of a pet, please use the ID#, not the pet's name. This is the fastest way for staff to give you the most accurate information on a pet's status possible

Note:  Please keep in mind that all adoptable pets need time to decompress once they enter a home.  For some it will happen quickly and for others it might take a few weeks.  You'll want to be understanding of what they have been through and their level of insecurity.  We ask that you treat all of them as if they were an 8 week old puppy (or kitty).  Assume they know nothing and begin at step one.  You'll soon know what they are capable of and what behaviors you will need to kindly work on with your new family member.  It's called commitment!  And, that's what these pets want more than anything!

Also, here's a link to all the animals at Summit County Animal Control:
