Hours: Mon-Fri 7am-4pm

All dogs are available for a limited time from the Carroll County Dog Pound located at 2185 Kensington Rd. NE, Route 9, Carrollton, Ohio 44615. We are southeast of the Akron/Canton area. Please call the Dog Pound for more information at 330-627-4244. We are open Monday-Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. except holidays.

The adoption fee is $35 for senior/special needs dogs, $40 for standard dogs, $45 for puppies and all include a Carroll County dog license, 5-way shot and micro-chip. The license will be mailed to you. Stray dogs must be held for 3 days. Owner surrenders are available right away. We do not hold dogs. Dogs are not temperament checked. All dogs from a pound could possibly be infected with a contagious disease. It is best to isolate the dog from your pets at home until you can get them checked with a veterinarian.

The breeds and ages listed are our best guess. We make no claims to temperament, breed, age, or sex of dogs listed. Adoptions are on a first come, first serve, unless it is a stray coming up for adoption and more than 1 person is interested. Then, the people interested must be at the Dog Pound between 8:00 a.m. – 8:15 a.m. on available date. You will be given a ticket and there will be a drawing for the winning adopter.

Please call the Carroll County Dog Pound for more information.

Spaying and neutering offers your pet many health and behavior benefits and lessens the over population of homeless animals who must be euthanized at shelters.
