The adopter will receive a Free Initial Exam Voucher for most local Veterinarians’ offices. This will waive the office call fee but does not cover any additional vaccinations, testing, and/or medications.

Before leaving the Stark County Humane Society, all animals are spayed/neutered, microchipped, dewormed for round and hook worms; boosters are given but additional may be needed depending on the recommendation of your veterinarian. Canines have received a Bordatella Intranasal/Injectable and animals old enough have received their Rabies vaccine.

This summer the Shelter has started heartworm testing for Canines and FelV/FIV for Felines; animals must be six months or older for the shelter to do testing.

We offer a one hour hold at no charge for potential adopters. As well, the Shelter will do a twenty-four (24) hour hold on the animal but there is a $10 fee per animal. This is not refundable but will apply toward adoption fee upon the animal’s adoption.

RETURN TO OWNER(S):
These fees will vary depending on what service(s) have been provided to the animal:

  • Boarding (No Vaccines): $20 first two (2) days ($10 each additional day)
  • Boarding (Vaccines): $30 first three (3) days ($10 each additional day)
  • Boarding (Vaccines and Spayed/Neutered): $60 after three (3) days. Microchip; with owner's permission.
Animal must be claimed within four (4) to seven (7) days of arrival. Regular adoption fee(s) apply to any animal returned to owner after this period.

The shelter does not accept personal checks for adoptions of animals. The shelter will accept cash or credit cards only.
