Shelter Services - County Dog Control Facility


Early in 2002, the Dog Control Department began operating a Dog Control Facility at 1165 Seriff Road, Lima. All dogs in the custody of the Dog Warden are housed at this location during the holding periods defined by the Ohio Revised Code Section 955.16. A dog with a displayed dog license is held until claimed by the owner to a maximum of 14 days. A dog without a displayed dog license is held until claimed by the owner to a maximum of 3 days.

Adoptions are arranged directly through the Dog Control Facility.
