Adoptable Pets in Ohio
Amazing No kill animal shelter.

Founded in 1997, Hounds' Haven is dedicated to finding homes for truly homeless dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens. Located in Jefferson County, Ohio, Hounds' Haven, one of the few "quality of life" shelters in the Ohio Valley, provides a clean, safe environment for stray, neglected, and abused animals.

Each animal at the shelter is spayed or neutered and up-to-date on vaccinations to be sure that he or she lives a healthy life. Because we are a private, non-profit organization, the shelter is funded solely on the generosity of volunteers, donations, and grants.

1. Feral Cat TNR Program

Many communities are embracing Trap, Neuter, Release programs (TNR) to improve animal welfare, reduce death rates, and meet obligations to public welfare.

2. High-Volume, Low-Cost Spay/Neuter

Low cost, high volume spay/neuter will quickly lead to fewer animals entering the shelter system, allowing more resources to be allocated toward saving lives.

3. Rescue Groups

An adoption or transfer to a rescue group frees up scarce cage and kennel space, reduces expenses for feeding, cleaning, killing, and improves a community's rate of lifesaving. In an environment of millions of dogs and cats killed in shelters annually, rare is the circumstance in which a rescue group should be denied an animal.

4. Foster Care

Volunteer foster care is crucial to No Kill. Without it, saving lives is compromised. It is a low cost, and often no cost, way of increasing a shelter's capacity, improving public relations, increasing a shelter's public image, rehabilitating sick and injured or behaviorally challenged animals, and saving lives.

5. Comprehensive Adoption Programs

Adoptions are vital to an agency's lifesaving mission. The quantity and quality of shelter adoptions is in shelter management's hands, making lifesaving a direct function of shelter policies and practice. In fact, studies show people get their animals from shelters only 20% of the time. If shelters better promoted their animals and had adoption programs responsive to the needs of the community, including public access hours for working people, offsite adoptions, adoption incentives, and effective marketing, they could increase the number of homes available and replace killing with adoptions. Contrary to conventional wisdom, shelters can adopt their way out of killing.

6. Pet Retention

While some of the reasons animals are surrendered to shelters are unavoidable, others can be prevented-but only if shelters are willing to work with people to help them solve their problems. Saving animals requires communities to develop innovative strategies for keeping people and their companion animals together. And the more a community sees its shelters as a place to turn for advice and assistance, the easier this job will be.

7. Medical and Behavior Programs

In order to meet its commitment to a lifesaving guarantee for all savable animals, shelters need to keep animals happy and healthy and keep animals moving through the system. To do this, shelters must put in place comprehensive vaccination, handling, cleaning, socialization, and care policies before animals get sick and rehabilitative efforts for those who come in sick, injured, unweaned, or traumatized.

8. Public Relations/Community Involvement

Increasing adoptions, maximizing donations, recruiting volunteers and partnering with community agencies comes down to one thing: increasing the shelter's exposure. And that means consistent marketing and public relations. Public relations and marketing are the foundation of all a shelter's activities and their success. To do all these things well, the shelter must be in the public eye.

9. Volunteers

Volunteers are a dedicated "army of compassion" and the backbone of a successful No Kill effort. There is never enough staff, never enough dollars to hire more staff, and always more needs than paid human resources. That is where volunteers come in and make the difference between success and failure and, for the animals, life and death.

10. Proactive Redemptions

One of the most overlooked areas for reducing killing in animal control shelters are lost animal reclaims. Sadly, besides having pet owners fill out a lost pet report, very little effort is made in this area of shelter operations. This is unfortunate because doing so-primarily shifting from passive to a more proactive approach-has proven to have a significant impact on lifesaving and allow shelters to return a large percentage of lost animals to their families.

11. A Compassionate Director

The final element of the No Kill equation is the most important of all, without which all other elements are thwarted-a hard working, compassionate animal control or shelter director not content to regurgitate tired cliches or hide behind the myth of "too many animals, not enough homes." Unfortunately, this one is also oftentimes the hardest one to demand and find.

Dear Robin, I know how very busy you are and all the constant demands, not to mention people like me "nagging" you, but I wondered if you had room for the kitten we spoke to you about last week? You said you thought the "cat lady" was going to have three openings by the weekend. This is the little kitty that was thrown from a car window. She is truly a sweetheart and cute as a button - even with her bald spot - but she is causing so much uproar with our other cats, that she really needs to find a hope of her own. I know you never asked, but we would gladly make a donation to cover her room & board. Thanks so much, Jack Koehrsen

Hello, Can you help me? My name is Rose Gifford and I live in Harrison County Ohio. We have no shelters for cats near us. And I am looking for a shelter who might be able to take several of my feral cats. Many years ago I started out with 2 cats, but as I live in the country people thought it was alright to drop their unwanted pets here. For year we tried our best to feed and shelter them and for the most part we did ok. But in 2014 my husband of 42 years passed away, leaving me the only income here. As I have several health issues including being in a wheel chair most days, it is very hard for me to deal with them all. I have 9 cats. 6 who are house broken and 3 who live outside.. The 3 outside will be hard to catch as they are still a little people shy. But the 6 who live in side in the winter should not be a problem. I have been trying for months to find homes for them all but so far no one wants any of them. As I am waiting to move to a senior apartment in down town Steubenville, I must find some place for my cats. So please if you could help me find homes for them I would be most grateful. you may contact me at this email address or call me at 740 946 8306. The machine will pick up just say who you are and why you are calling and someone will pick up or call you right back.. Thank you ..... Rose Gifford

Am looking for a small white poodle. Mine passed away after 14 years from cancer and am hoping to find another after the holidays. Please let me know when one comes available, I miss my baby but would love to give another a good home. I can give references from my groomer who took care of him for years and even the vets from the Pittsburgh Specialty and Emergency Center who can testify how hard we fought for his life. Thank you.

I have two puppies that r 3 months old now to give away. They are mixed breed. They will make medium size dogs. I have the mother and father, who will be going to the Harrison county pound tomorrow if someone would be interested in them as well. I didn't want them going there, but they have gotten out of my dog pen several times, and a neighbor has been complaining. The female has been spayed. The two would have to stay together, they are that attached. However, i want to get rid of puppies before that happens to them. I don't like or didn't want to have anything to do with the dog pound. My number is 740 546-3747. My name is sherry.
