Three French Bullgod Puppies

Welcome to Licking County Dog Shelter and Adoption Center. We are dedicated to finding loving homes for dogs in need. Our mission is to provide a safe and caring environment for dogs, and to promote responsible pet ownership through education and community outreach. With your support, we can make a difference in the lives of these amazing animals. Adopt, don't shop!


With the influx of strays being found, we would just like to remind you that if you find a stray dog after 4pm, you will have to hold onto the dog for the night or next available business day. We do not have anyone available after hours to run these type of calls. So please just understand that we are not a 24 hour facility. We thank you for your understanding on this matter.
