  • 1. Very Much Improved

    by: lablover60

    I have pulled multiple dogs from this shelter, and they all came in good shape. The Dog warden and the volunteers in the area do a great job, even have one named Nancy after one of their kind ladies that pulled her for me,. Keep up the good work


    Caring staff

    I transported once for a rescue. They wanted a dog out of Mercer County Pound. So I went and picked it up and took it to the rescue. (www.doggietransportguy.com). \n\nThe folks at the shelter are nice. It is usually just the Dog Warden who is overworked. But he does all he can.\n\nThere are several rescues who help him so he must be a good guy because some rescues will hold a grudge if they don't like you.\n\nMercer county pound doing what they can for the dogs.


    nice folks


    not the best shelter

  • 3. Improving for the animals

    by: peytonplace2001

    A couple years ago, I rescued a mommy dog and her 4 pups who were 5 months old. They had been taken during a cruelty case and had to be held for 4 months. The puppies were not greatly socialized because the staff is very limited.\n\nThe DW was very nice. The shelter does need some help. I know they switched a couple years ago from gassing to injection which made a difference in the way folks view a shelter.\n\nThe rescue groups really do try and help this shelter out whenever they can.\n\nMercer County Pound has some great dogs up for adoption every day.


    nice folks

    Two of our dogs are alumni of this shelter in rural northwestern Ohio. The kill rate at this shelter has improved drastically thanks to a dedicated bunch of volunteers and the willingness of the warden. After a heartbreaking history of mass gassings and high kill rates, this shelter has seen a number of terrific improvements, some of which came at great personal expense to the warden himself. In addition, it is my belief that any necessary euths are no longer done via the barbaric practice of gassing, but by the far more compassionate means of injection. Great job you all, keep up the fantastic work!


    Very rescue friendly, making great strides in improving the facility and lowering the kill rate


    Dogs are released without being neutered/spayed
