Adopt a dog to find what suits him

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — More than 130 dogs are available for adoption at the Franklin County Dog Shelter and Adoption Center, and dogs housed for more than 14 days can be adopted for just $18 — the price of a dog license.

This week’s featured pet is “Lucy”. The young pup is available for $18 and wants to please his person, especially when there are treats.

Recently, Lucy won the Shelter’s Talent Show. You can see the quick video at this link.

When it comes to obedience training, the shelter works with dogs and is willing to give advice on how to train your own pet.

People interested in a dog do not have to commit immediately. Instead, a dog can be brought home and taken in. And it helps to lighten the population at the shelter.

“Franklin County Dog Shelter’s Foster-to-Adopt program is a great way to find out if one of our dogs is right for your family before you commit to lifelong adoption,” said Erin Hamill of the shelter.

And during this trial walk, all services for the animal will continue to be paid for by the shelter. You don’t have to pay anything until you choose to adopt.

“When you adopt, you will bring that dog home for a predetermined period of time while caring for them and loving them as you would your own,” Hamill said. “During the Foster-to-Adopt period, the shelter will continue to provide all necessary medical care as well as provide each foster family with food, a leash and collar, and any other supplies needed.”
