Long Distance Adoption Procedure

1. Call the shelter to make sure your dog is still there. Also inquire at this time if the dog is already altered to determine the fee structure you will use We now accept credit and debit cards at the Kennel to assist in adopting.  There is a convience fee associated with this procedure.  Please call 419-334-2372 or e-mail glas_john@co.sandusky.oh.us for more information.

Spay/neuter requirements can be waived for 501C's that wish to complete vet work themselves by sending, via email, a copy of their certification. Also, a Veterinarian Certification of spay/neuter must be submitted ASAP after the dog is altered. Opting to complete veterinarian work does not alter fee schedule.



Complaints:

If you wish to file a formal complaint about a dog, be prepared to give our office the most information that you can. Please keep in mind, all of our work here is public knowledge. We cannot keep your name anonymous unless you can demonstrate a clear threat to your safety.

We cannot accept dog complaints by email. If you have a complaint please call our office at 419-334-2372.

We need your name and address and as much information about the dog owner as possible. The more information (name, address, type of offense) that you can give the better we can do our job. We do not handle barking dogs, cats, or wildlife.

We have to see a violation to issue a citation, UNLESS you wish to sign a sworn statement. Keep in mind false statements can be prosecuted as perjury.

Due to budget constraints regarding overtime and staff limitations the dog warden's office does not respond to after hours complaints except in the case of emergency dog bites. Resolution 2008-27 Section 2.
