Adoption

Lucas County Canine Care & Control was formerly known as the Lucas County Dog Warden. In December of 2013 we made the leap to change our name to better fit what we actually do. We still enforce all the sames laws and provide even more services. The focus on providing better care to the dogs in our possession has led to many changes over the last several years including creating playgroups, having volunteer dog walkers, dog bathers, and dog trainers, and even providing some adoptable dogs with kennel buddies to prevent boredom while they await their new families. 

We do accept owner surrendered dogs and will place them for adoption if they pass our behavioral and medical evaluations. We would rather help you find resources to be able to keep your dog in your home if that is an option. We have referrals to low cost or even free spay/neuter, free pet food for short-term needs, free supplies such as collars, leashes and ID tags, and much more. Please send us an email if you believe you could keep your dog if you had some extra support during a difficult time and we will do our best to match you up with available resources. Find more information on our Owner Surrender page.

Lucas County Canine Care & Control houses between 90 and 160 dogs at any given time. Aside from our dogs up for adoption we also house dogs during their stray hold that we try to reunite with their owners, dogs on bite quarantine or court related holds, dogs recovering from medical issues and dogs waiting for their medical or behavioral evaluation on their way to adoption.

No, Lucas County Canine Care & Control does not accept cats nor do we pick them up. There are a number of shelters or rescue groups in our area that do accept cats including the Toledo Area Humane Society in Maumee.
