The Animal Shelter Society would like to thank Brian Kuhn Photography for capturing great images of our oldest resident during the Veterans Day parade in beautiful Downtown Zanesville. Mr. Baxter who is 13 y/o and the Executive Director’s favorite loved seeing everyone. You would never know he is a senior due to having good health, still active and loves people. His only issue is he despises felines and that does not thrill our Director who is a cat lover. However - as an adoptable, no-kill organization, the work that goes into finding the best home for him is what our mission is all about. We will get him where he deserves to live out his years. Let us know if you are interested in our Mr. Baxter. Visit our website: animalsheltersociety.org - complete an adoption application. We appreciate you 🐾♥️

Today - our shelter donated to over 20 households with dog/cat food for their pets along with straw for those that they do not have inside. We also were able to donate to the Muskingum County Humane Officer when she called. We are not just about adoptions and running the low cost spay/neuter clinic. All of the food donated contained red dye of which we do not use at our organization due to strict monitoring by our veterinary staff. We are thankful we can help and care for our community as our community always helps and cares about our 100% non-profit organization. 🐾♥️

🚨 IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT 🚨

2024 Muskingum County Dog Licenses will go on sale on December 1, 2023. The Muskingum County Commissioners have increased the price of licenses for 2024 to $16.00. More information can be found online at https://www.muskingumcountyauditor.org

The Animal Shelter Society, Inc. is one of twelve satellite vendors that sells dog licenses; per the Ohio Revised Code, satellite vendors receive a 75 cent processing fee for each dog license that is sold at their facility to help cover the administrative cost of selling the license. We do not receive any additional fees from the sale of the dog licenses and all license fees go to Muskingum County to fund the K-9 Adoption Center.

As a 501(c)3 non-profit, we are funded through adoption and service fees, fundraising proceeds, grants and generous donations from our supportive community. We do not receive any funding from dog license fees, taxes or other government funding.

A wonderful gesture happened for the staff of The Animal Shelter Society, Inc with donations of turkeys and gift cards from Tammy Findeiss & Marla Flood. They both attended our 4th annual Barktoberfest and was educated that we have a great staff of 16+ members who work for minimum wage and do an amazing job with our animals who did not ask to be here. Our wages are not covered by any government agency (tax money) as we are a 100% non-profit organization. We appreciate that our community supports us and believes in our mission. We give thanks for Tammy & Marla 🐾♥️

Miss Willow would make a great addition to your family. She is 4.5 months old pup with high energy. She loves to run and play with her ball. We will be looking for a family with a fenced in backyard so she can run. She is a mixed shepherd/husky mix with a great personality. She is smart and catches on very quickly to verbal commands. Please visit our website:animalsheltersociety.org to complete the adoption application and get a chance to meet her during a meet & greet. The entire family must come in along with any dogs in the family to make sure we have the best fit for Willow. Call us with any questions (740) 452-1077. 🐾♥️

ZANESVILLE, OH – The Animal Shelter Society is continuing their mission of finding forever homes for animals in need, and this week’s Pet of the Week is Willow.

This week, The Animal Shelter Society, Inc. was able to donate over 20k pounds of food to our community. We made deliveries to Eastside Community Ministry, Christ's Table, Trulight Ministries, The Salvation Army of Zanesville and pop-up stops in various spots in our community. We had numerous animal owners come into our brick & mortar to pick up food for their dogs & cats. Many are confused at times as to why we ask for food for our animals but give food away. As many know, we run a very solid program for our animals. We cannot use “red-dyes” in our food source. If our staff would see “red” in any of our 131 animals kennels - that brings an entire route of concern for our Animal Care Manager & Chief Veterinarian who end up getting involved. It could be costly in attempting to diagnose an issue when it may have just been the food. That is why we use only Purina. (No red-dyes). We accept donations & greatly appreciate it. All of the food donated is purrfectly safe for consumption (animal). We are extremely proud of what we give back through our food pantry both at the Shelter and when we go mobile for our partners. Notice all of the partners we dropped food off to feeds the people - We feed the pets - Everyone eats. 🐾♥️
