Find out more about the Tuscarawas County Humane Society’s adoption process.
The Adoption Process
The Tuscarawas County Humane Society takes great care in placing the animals at our shelter into safe, comfortable and loving homes. Our adoption process helps us determine the compatibility and safety of our adoptable animals and their new families. All our animals are adopted out through an approved application.
Please note: to visit a dog outside of its kennel, an approved application must be on file. If not, visitors are always welcome to view TCHS’s dogs through their kennels. Visitors are always welcome to go into the cat rooms and spend time with the cats.
How do I apply to adopt an animal?
Submit an online adoption application. Select either the Dog Adoption Application or the Cat Adoption Application.
Be sure to contact the shelter to verify the approval of your application by calling 330-343-6060 or stopping at our facility located at 1432 Tall Timber Road, NE, New Philadelphia, Ohio 44663. The application process may take 3-5 business days to complete
