Inside or Outside most of time? THE MORE INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE, the better.
STEP 2:Share and Post

Keeping your pet up-to-date with vaccines, heartworm prevention, flea prevention, and spayed/neutered
will GREATLY INCREASE the opportunity for your family member to be rehomed. *A Rehoming fee is
requested IF your pet is not up-to-date with vaccines, heartworm testing, and spayed or neutered.

Re-homing (surrendering) a pet to a county shelter means
the pet may live only a few days; it depends upon the health and age of the pet, and the space availability. Life in a shelter ....... no matter how long or short the stay - is a very stressful environment for your pet; consequently, your family pet can become ill or die if his / her vaccines are not up to date, and can show signs of aggression - due to the his/her anxiety and fear. Many county shelters are already full due to puppy mills and backyard breeders. County shelters are NOT long term care facilities and many rescue groups in OHIO are already full.
