Our Mission

Friends of Stark Pound is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to reduce the population of homeless dogs at the Stark County Dog Warden Department by providing funding for spay/neuter procedures and basic veterinary care, while educating the public on the importance of adoption and responsible pet ownership. Friends of Stark Pound operates in cooperation with the Stark County Dog Warden’s staff to significantly enhance the quality of life for the homeless puppies and dogs and to increase their opportunities for placement through adoptions or rescue groups. Friends of Stark Pound is extremely grateful for the continuous support and involvement of our community.
