Please Grant a Wish

In-kind donations

These days, many people do not have the extra time to volunteer. However, we know many people do want to see the homeless dogs at the Dog Warden shelter receive the basic care, comfort, and the medical attention they deserve. Are you someone who would like to help the homeless dogs? Please review the wish list below. It includes a variety of items that are regularly needed.

Monetary donations

The Stark County General Fund receives 100% of all financial contributions donated directly to the Dog Warden Division. Friends of Stark Pound uses 100% of all of our financial gift donations towards a monthly stipend to the veterinary department, a $500 donation to an adopter’s vet when a dog has heartworm, as well as other ways around the shelter that will help the overall well-being of the dogs. The entirety of your financial contribution to Friends of Stark Pound will help advance our mission of creating a nurturing, positive environment for all of the homeless puppies and dogs at the Dog Warden Division while we seek their forever homes.
