Church & Dwight

We would like to thank Church & Dwight of Old Port, OH for their generous donation of cat littertotaling 64,000 POUNDS!

We received the frst truck load on Thursday, February 9, 2017, and would like to thank Gary of Car Kare LLC for transporting it to the shelter and the SCHD staff for unloading the cat litter! On Tuesday, March 21, we would like to thank the local company for transporting the litter, they have chosen to remain anonymous! For the second load we had a friend of the Humane Society offer to bring and use his company’s tow motor to unload; a thank you to Bob Phillips from Action Recycling! We would like to express our sincere gratitude to all of those who helped make this possible!

Sadly, It Is a Story That We Hear All Too Often

Life happens, & the pets become less of a priority. However, sometimes they don’t become a priority at all & end up neglected. One of the most common neglect injuries that we see at the Humane Society is an embedded collar. More...

Feeding and Stimulating the Kitten

When the kittens are brought home, set up the box with the heating pad in the bottom, followed by puppy pad and then hand towels or small thin blanket. (Heating pad should be positioned so that the kittens can maneuver away from it.) More...

Stark County Humane Society/Stark County Dog Warden

Last year, the shelter began working directly with the Stark County Dog Warden’s office to help place dogs at our shelter when the pound becomes full.

In 2012, the shelter along with the SCDW transferred 306 stray dogs into the Stark County Humane Society. By the shelter opening its doors to the “pound dogs” the SCDW was able to drop their euthanasia by 73%. We would like to thank the Stark County Dog Wardens Office, the staff and Board of the Stark County Humane Society for making these transfers a true success for the dogs and their forever families!

Your Kindness Can Live Forever

The animals of the Stark County Humane Society will need your help during your lifetime and forever. If you wish to remember them in your will or through your life insurance policy, our proper name is Stark County Humane Society. In providing for the animals by making the Shelter beneficiary, you can provide for the animals needs after your gone.

*Animals are not lesser creatures than humans; they are just packaged differently!*

Recycle

The shelter is always in need of newspapers. We accept newspapers as long as they are bagged and or bundled. The shelter recycles any paper we cannot use for the animals. More...
