To adopt a pet, there will be a base fee of $150.00. To use OUR vet services for 2 vaccines(Rabies & DHLP) and sterilization(spay or neuter), there will be an extra 75.00-100.00 fee, depending on weight of adopted pet. 

A pre-adoption
questionnaire must be filled out, as well as a contract upon actual adoption
All dogs will be spayed/neutered. Adopters may use THEIR chosen vet, or utilize OUR low cost spay/neuter program. We are an organization that is pro-active in ending the proliferation of unwanted animals. We DO require proof of sterilization if new adopter's chosen vet performs this procedure.
Our dogs will have been given the necessary vaccines for kennel living, but there are some instances that prevent us from providing this service. All other vaccinations will be left up to individuals due to the many controversies surrounding the adverse effects of these inoculations. 
We will NOT adopt pets to families who intend to keep dogs chained outdoors/ crated for extended periods. Dogs WILL be removed from home without refund if this occurs...... immediately.
Volunteers, foster Moms and Dads are needed. You may also be a "Buddy" sponsor to any dog that remains in the shelter for  $10.00/month.
All adoption fees are considered a donation, and are also tax deductible/non-refundable.
WE DO NOT ACCEPT CATS OR KITTENS. WE HAVE NO FACILITY TO HOUSE THEM. WE ARE VERY SORRY FOR THIS INCONVENIENCE. Cats are available for adoption by calling 330-364-7190, but are fostered at private affiliate homes.
*We DO offer  low-cat spay/neuter year round to aid in prevention feline over-population. OWC has prevented millions of unwanted felines from being born in Tuscarawas county by spaying and neutering 120+ cats per year since 2009.
