Ways You Can Help

There are many ways you can help the dogs at the Stark County Pound.

Adopt. Donate. Volunteer.



Thinking of adding a four-legged friend to your home. Please look at the beautiful faces here at the Stark County Pound. Sadly, space is limited at the pound, too many people give up their pets, and too few people adopt from shelters. You can save a life. View our adoptable dogs at: PETFINDER.com.

Not Ready to Adopt?


The Stark County General Fund receives 100% of all financial contributions donated to the Stark County Pound. While Friends of the Pound uses 100% of all of our financial gift donations to purchase items such as, but not exclusive to, soft food for our senior dogs, puppy food for our tiny guest, medical attention, and comfort items such as bedding and grooming needs that are not provided by the county.
