The Wood County Dog Shelter is a department operated under the direction
of the Wood County Commissioners. Wood County is one of the largest counties in the state of Ohio at 617 square
miles and has an average population of 125,488 citizens. Each Ohio county is required by state
law to employ a Dog Warden.
The Wood County Dog Warden and Deputies are required to patrol the county
and impound any stray and unlicensed dogs as well as to enforce sections
955.01 to 955.27, 955.29 to 955.38, and 955.50 of the Ohio Revised Code.
The Wood County Dog Shelter receives hundreds of stray dogs and adopts them to new homes or redeems them to their owners each year. The Shelter strives to reduce the number of stray dogs throughout the county and provide homes for the hundreds of dogs brought in each year. The Dog Shelter per the Ohio Revised Code is not authorized to handle cats.
The Wood County County Dog Shelter will begin conducting door to door dog license checks in May. Dog license sales revenue and shelter fees are the only revenue sources utilized for the operation of the Dog Shelter. No additional tax revenue funds Dog Shelter operations. The Wood County Dog Shelter extends thanks to the Wood County residents that have purchased or renewed licenses for 2015.
The Wood County County Dog Shelter extends our sincere appreciation to the Bowling Green Arbor of the Gleaner Life Insurance Society for their generous donations to the Wood County Dog Shelter over the years. Read More
