Dog Warden

The Dog Wardens for Clark County enforce state dog laws and ensure public safety. We do this by patrolling the county for stray dogs and impound those that are not wearing current license. We also answer calls concerning dangerous and vicious dogs.  We take pride in our ability to keep the public safe while ensuring the dogs are taken care of humanely.  In 2019 we brought in over 1081 dogs. We are very happy to say that we were able to reunite 309 of those dogs back with their owners and 323 of those were adopted into new homes.  We also utilize rescues when possible; 243 dogs were sent to rescues. 

 

 Functions as the Dog Warden of Clark County include:

  • Investigation of cruelty and abandonment of dogs
  • Enforcing dog laws
  • Licensing dogs
  • Investigation of bites or attacks involving dogs
  • Public health and safety


The Clark County Dog Shelter at 5201 Urbana Road is open Monday-Saturday 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm., closed Wednesday, 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.  Current license is required and may be purchased if necessary at the time of redemption.  Please call 937 521-2140 for more information.
