POMEROY — The Meigs County Dog Shelter, located at 41790 Fairgrounds Lane in Pomeroy, is a rescue-friendly facility. The adoption fee is $90 for adult dogs and includes first shot, rabies vaccine, spay/neuter and dog license.
The fee for puppy adoptions is $100 and includes the spay/neuter fee; a contact is required for puppies not old enough to undergo the procedure at the time of adoption. When the puppy is old enough, they can be taken to the shelter’s local vet. First shot, rabies and dog license are included in the adoption fee.
There is a $10 fee per dog to cover the cost of initial vaccine and wormer.
Also, another reminder to have your dogs licensed by Jan. 31 to avoid a late fee or penalty. Visit their Facebook page or call the shelter for information on where to purchase license.
Winter has arrived, and for those outdoor pets, remember to change their water frequently, as it freezes when temperatures drop. Also make sure your pet has a safe and warm place to go during inclement weather.
Shelter hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Thursday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The shelter is closed Sunday and Monday. Appointments to visit the shelter can be arranged by contacting Dee Cummins, assistant dog warden, at 740-992-3779. Leave a message if no one answers.
