Medina County Animal Shelter

Animals Currently Available for Adoption

Below is a list of dogs currently available at our shelter. The adoption list is updated daily, and may only be a partial listing of the animals that need a loving home. For more information, please call or visit the Animal Shelter.

All stray dogs at our shelter are scanned for micro-chips, but a dog license is always the sure ticket home. All of the dogs listed are current on DHPP, Bordetella, and dewormed.

This year our adoption event, Dogtoberfest, will take place on October 12th during the 2019 Medina County Fall Foliage Tour at the Medina County Animal Shelter. The goal of this event is to raise awareness of our Shelter as well as work to support other shelters within the county and neighboring counties. The event brings together multiple shelters and rescues to help provide forever homes to adoptable dogs and cats. Last year, there were 9 adoptions with 8 organizations participating in the event. This year, we hope to double those numbers!

If you know a shelter or rescue who would like to participate or would like to donate items, please contact Megan Holly at or call the shelter at 330-725-9121
