POMEROY — The Meigs County Canine Rescue and Adoption Center, formerly known as The Meigs County Dog Shelter, will be announcing plans for a grand opening event soon.
This new rescue-friendly is located at 33133 Hiland Rd. in Pomeroy, and most of the move in is complete. All Shelters dogs are in their new home while they wait for their forever home, and there has already been at least one adoption at the new location.
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.
Center hours will be posted soon, and appointments to visit the shelter can be arranged by contacting Coleen Murphy, dog warden, or Dee Cummins, assistant dog warden, at 740-992-3779. Leave a message if no one answers, they are often away on rescue missions.
