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 revised hold policy is effective October 25, 2018 and can be viewed here.
The Wood County Dog Shelter applied for and was awarded a $1,500 grant in 2018 offered by the Ohio Pet Fund to assist with providing spay/neuter to dogs residing at the shelter. Ohio Pet Fund grants are made possible by the purchase of Ohio Pet License Plates. For more informaiton visit Ohio Pet Fund's website.
