How to Adopt the Right Dog in Ohio for You and Your Family

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) – When families set out to adopt a dog from the Franklin County Dog Shelter and Adoption Center, they already know what type of dog they want to adopt.

People prefer a particular pattern of spots or unique markings because it makes a dog different from others. Whether you want to adopt a dog, the shelter encourages you to simply show up and find your forever friend. Whether the dog is big, small, old or young, the shelter staff will be sure to find the right fit for your family.

“If you know what dog you want, I recommend going to our website and looking at the dogs’ personalities and characteristics,” said Assistant Director Dwayne Young. “You might have a list of four to five dogs you’re interested in.”

You are welcome to come regardless of whether you are fully organized with a plan or just want to travel through finding the right dog. When you arrive, an adoption counselor will help you and give you advice based on your lifestyle.

The FCDS website is ready to find hundreds of furry friends. Many have bios that describe what activities the dog enjoys, if they know commands, and how they behave in social settings.

Of course, you can scroll through the images on the page and simply choose the cutest dog.

shy dog has profiled dozens of dogs online and on TV since March. An example is Bella, pictured here. Her bio explains that she is in love and wants to be by her man’s side. What makes her profile stand out are photos of her hanging out and cuddling with a guy during a recent home visit.

Points to note about Bella are that she is housebroken, crate-trained, and good with children ages 12 and up. Is Bella the right dog for you? The only way to find out is to spend some time with this 5-year-old mixed breed.

The shelter offers several outdoor play areas, a walking path and a sensory garden to see how she behaves in different situations. The next step is to try her at home.

“We help guide you through the whole process,” Young said.

During the week of the Clear the Shelters event, the shelter is offering a “sleepover weekend.” A dog can be taken home on weekends and that started on Thursday.

All sleeping supplies will be provided. You provide your house guest with a comfortable place to rest their head and allow the rest to shelter.

If you love your house guest, most adoptions can be finalized over the phone at a later date (waived adoption fees still apply). The host must be able to pick up and drop off their house guest within the specified dates/times. This event is not limited to Franklin County residents.
