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?


Friends of Stark Pound uses 100% of all of our financial donations to purchase items used in the shelter’s veterinary department, such as surgical supplies, medicines, heartworm treatment, soft food for our senior dogs, and puppy food for our tiny guests. When you donate to Friends of Stark Pound, your dollars go directly to help Stark County’s homeless dogs.
