Tuscarawas County Humane Society FAQs
Currently, we accept animals that come to us from the activities of the Humane Officer, pound rescues and other rescue situations. Our organization serves as a community resource when adult protective service needs assistance in placing animals owned by their clients. We respond to requests from the health department when properties are no longer fit for human or animal occupancy. We assist local law enforcement with animals running at-large, that may need to be kept until their owners can be contacted. We also assist those pet owners who are hospitalized and have no family resources to care for their pets.
Our shelter is set up to house about 20 to 30 dogs and about 30 to 40 cats.
We are very appreciative of any donations, whether they are supplies, monetary donations or volunteering for our shelter. The fact that the Tuscarawas County Humane Society has been able to make vast improvements and increase the services that it provides (in an economy that is still struggling to recover) is a great testament to the passion and caring that our community has for animals that cannot help themselves.
