Dog Warden
As the Dog Warden for Clark County (Ohio state law requires every county to have one), it is our job is to enforce state dog laws and ensure the safety of our counties public. We do this by patrolling the county for stray and vicious dogs. We take pride in our ability to keep the public safe while still ensure the dogs are taken care of humanely. In 2016 we brought in over 275 dogs. We are very happy to say that we were able to reunite 116 of those dogs back with their owners and 73 of those were turned over to the Clark County Humane Society for future adoption.

Our function as the Dog Warden of Clark County include:
  • Abandonment, cruelty / neglect, and bite quarantines
  • Enforcing of dog laws
  • Licensing of dogs
  • Public health and safety

The Clark County Dog Shelter at 5201 Urbana Road is open Monday-Saturday 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm., closed Sundays and Holidays.  Impound fees are $35 for the first day and $15 board for each additional day, if the dog has a current license.  License may be purchased if necessary at the time of redemption.  Please call 937 521-2140 for more information.
