The Animal Shelter Society
The Animal Shelter Society, Inc. is committed to housing, caring, and finding homes for the homeless animals in our community. All of our K9’s/Felines are spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped prior to adoption. As a private, non-profit 501c3 organization, the Animal Shelter Society exists to promote and protect the health, safety and welfare of homeless animals in Muskingum County through the dedicated efforts of employees and volunteers and the generous support of our caring community.
We will strive to accomplish our Mission by focusing our efforts on: The efficient and effective adoption of homeless animals to responsible owners; The diligent promotion of spay and neuter to curb the population of unwanted animals; The recruitment and training of knowledgeable staff, dedicated volunteers and community supporters; The continuous public education programs on the prevention of cruelty to animals; The prudent stewardship of the Shelter’s tangible and intangible assets.
We are an “adoptable, no-kill” shelter, which means that we never euthanize for space. There is no “death row” at our facility! We do, however, have occasions where it is in the best interest of the animal to perform a humane euthanization due to an extreme medical or behavioral condition that cannot be rehabilitated. In 2019, we had an adoption rate of 99.1%.
