On Tuesday, the Mahoning County Dog Warden announced that the Mahoning County Dog Pound and Adoption Center would be moving into a new facility “to better serve the needs of our dogs and the residents of Mahoning County.”
The Ohio shelter will move into the old Jump Stretch building on Meridian Road in Youngstown. The new building is approximately twice the size of the existing facility located at 589 Industrial Road.
Renovations will be made to utilize space more effectively in the Meridian Road than in the current facility. Plans for the new location include intake and quarantine areas, a puppy area and a small dog area, in addition to the adoption floor.
The move is scheduled to take place by year end.
Listed below are just some of the Mahoning County Dog Pound dogs listed on Petfinder that are ready to be adopted or rescued. For more information, call the shelter at 330-740-2205, email them at firstname.lastname@example.org or click here to go to the new Mahoning County Dog Warden page on Facebook.
Cooper (ID #196) is a friendly young male Hound/Retriever mix who was found abandoned in an attic with another dog. Cooper is ready, and deserving, of a family who will love him.
Note: Clicking on any of the names on this list will bring up that dogs information on Petfinder.
Santucci (ID #155) really is a black Labrador Retriever mix, but his former owners cropped his ears. Santucci is a good-natured boy, calm and friendly. But he’s decided that shelter life is not for him, and has been stressing out at the shelter. Please help Santucci find his forever home.
Zeppelin (ID #200) is handsome and gentle, a male Retriever/Chow Chow mix who was found as a stray. But this boy is very scared at the shelter. Please contact the shelter to adopt or rescue Zeppelin. He likes walks, and walks nicely on a leash.
Allie (ID #243) is still young, likely less than a year old. This pretty Terrier mix girl is friendly, sweet, energetic, and is ready for a home of her own.
Keenan (ID #238) is a handsome male yellow Labrador Retriever mix. Keenan is a little scared and reserved when he meets new people. He seems to like other dogs.
Male Plott Hound mix Percy (ID # 97) was found as a stray. He arrived at the shelter emaciated, nothing but skin and bones. Yet he is extremely friendly and trusting of people. Please share Percy to help him find a loving home.
Tina (ID #250) is an extra large female Mastiff mix who arrived at the shelter as a stray. She is friendly with people, and according to the woman who found her, she is good with kids, too.
Male German Shepherd mix Guido and another dog were left to roam the streets and fend for themselves. Both were terrified when they first arrived at the shelter. His buddy was adopted, leaving Guido behind. Although friendly, the shelter says of Guido: “He needs an adopter who can keep him safe, until he is secure (meaning in a new environment he may go into flight mode, if given a chance to escape). You can't help but fall in love with Guido. Come fall in love today.” They add that he loves walks, and walks really nicely on a leash.
Young female Spaniel mix Sarah (ID #277) is probably less than a year old, very friendly, playful, and gorgeous too. If not claimed by her owners, Sarah will be available for adoption on April 4.
Male Boxer mix Doc (ID #253) is gorgeous, but the shelter explains his breed is a mystery, “possibly pit, plott hound, boxer mix.” Doc is friendly with people and fairly gentle on a leash. He is quite a playful guy, and is very affectionate. Doc is ready for a family to love.
