Urgent Call from Scioto County Dog Shelter: Dogs at Risk, Community Action Needed


The Scioto County Dog Shelter has issued a dire plea for immediate action as the facility remains completely full, placing the lives of dogs in jeopardy. With no available space for the warden to pick up strays, the shelter faces the heartbreaking reality of having to make difficult decisions to create room for incoming animals.

In a statement released, shelter officials emphasized the urgency of the situation, stressing that the lives of these dogs hang in the balance. They implore anyone who has considered adopting a pet to act swiftly, as any dog currently out of their stray hold will be at risk by tomorrow afternoon at 2 PM.

Moreover, the shelter highlights ongoing sponsored adoption opportunities, urging individuals to take advantage of this initiative to provide loving homes to these deserving animals.

Located at 95 Arrowhead N Road in Portsmouth, Ohio, the Scioto County Dog Shelter can be reached at (740) 353-8802.

Time is of the essence, and the shelter urgently appeals to the community to come forward and help save these vulnerable animals from an uncertain fate. Every adoption makes a difference in the lives of these dogs, offering them a chance for a brighter future filled with love and care.
