Rescue Groups Welcome


Rescue Organizations

We welcome rescue organizations to work with us, though we can no longer offer discounts to rescues, unless the dog is a long-time resident of the shelter or has special needs. Rescues who are interested in a dog need to contact the warden, Jon Barber, at 330-451-2343 or Dr. Stacy Bridges, shelter veterinarian, at 330-451-2373 to adopt a special needs or long term resident dog. Funding for additional veterinary services (dental, cherry eye, entropian, heartworm treatment) may be available to assist rescues.

All dogs at the shelter receive the following from our veterinarian:

  • vaccinations
  • heartworm testing and preventative
  • worming treatment
  • spay or neuter

If your organization would like to use another veterinarian for these services or if this causes any other issues for your organization, arrangements may be made with the dog warden.

If you have any questions please feel free to email resqmestark@gmail.com or call the shelter at (330) 451-2343.
Thank You.
