FAQ

How do I adopt a animal from the Humane Society?
If you are interested in adopting any of the animals available through the Humane Society, there are several ways you can apply. You can download the adoption application available in the "Publications and Reports" section, fill it out and send it to: PO Box 114, Ashland, OH 44805. Or feel free to email any of our board members for more information. Also, Petfinder.com has more information on who to contact directly for each individual animal.

Are there any programs for spay/neutering my pets?
Any local veterinary clinic can offer a spay/neuter for dogs and cats. The Humane Society brings the RASCAL unit to Ashland once a month to offer low cost spay/neuters on an appointment basis. More information on that is available under the "Spay and Neuter" tab.
 
How do it register my pets with Ashland County?
Dog licenses can be purchased at the Auditors office, the county Dog Shelter, and several convenience stores in the area. But the best way to attach an identity to your pet in case of loss/theft is microchipping. All of the animals that come into the HS are microchipped prior to adoption. If you have a pet that was not adopted through the HS and would like to have him/her chipped, many vets in the area will do so, and it is also a service offered at RASCAL.
 
What are the fees for adopting a Humane Society pet?
Currently our fees are $75 for a cat/kitten, $125 for a dog/puppy. These fees help offset the cost of spay/neuter, vaccination, disease testing, worming, microchipping, and licensing.
 
Can I surrender my animal to the Humane Society?
We are an organization currently without a building, operating solely out of foster homes and the MANCI program. This unfortunately limits the number of animals we are able to take in from time to time. If you are looking to surrender an animal, please fill out the surrender form available in the "Publications and Reports" section in as much detail as possible and we will put you on a list. Unfortunately this list can be long, and the wait time is unpredictable as adoptions vary.
