Animal Shelter and Adoption Information
Front DeskAnimal Shelter
Summit County Animal Shelter serves as a care and impoundment facility, as well as a base for the County Animal Control Officers. Municipalities within Summit County also use the facility for impoundment of animals within their boundaries.

We are very fortunate to live in a community that supports its Animal Control and Shelter and that takes pet responsibility seriously. Due to the shelter’s commitment to promoting spaying and neutering of pets to prevent unwanted litters, we have been successful at reducing the amount of animals that end up in our shelter, thereby, reducing the number of animals that must be euthanized due to a lack of homes. We are extremely fortunate to be a shelter that only euthanizes animals because of serious health or behavior issues rather than lack of space.

The Animal Shelter provides the following services:
  • Pet Adoptions
  • Pet impound redemptions
  • Lost and found animal tracking
  • License sales
  • Live trap rentals
  • Pet cremation
  • Humane education
