Unfortunately, millions of unwanted puppies and kittens have to be euthanized each year in this country. Because of the tragedy of pet overpopulation, we require all of our adopted pets to be spayed or neutered.
Next door to our shelter is the Humane Society's Adoption Center (740-323-2100) which also has many animals that are in need of a good home. Please stop at both of our shelters if you wish to adopt a companion animal. If you don't see a pet fitting your needs, please check back. We have new animals coming in all of the time.
Available at LCAS!!! ALL makes & models. Standard 4 paw drive with a 100% purrrr warranty, better than NEW!! 'Multipoint inspection' includes behavioral evaluation, spay/neuter, age appropriate vaccines & general grooming". PURRFECT for you!!
Remember, savvy consumers, when shopping for a pre-owned cat, be sure to get its FIN (Feline Identification Number) and request a CATFAX report before finalizing the adoption. Nobody wants to take home a lemon. Cat. (Or you could just talk to shelter staff about the cat's personality and medical history.) Drive one home today!
