Trumbull County dog kennel filled to capacity

Posted: Updated:

If you're in the market for a pet, the Trumbull County Dog Warden wants you to consider adoption. 

The kennel was pushed to its limits when several dogs were brought in from a raid on an animal hoarder in Lordstown this week. But there is some good news.

"There were 11 dogs in total that were seized and we only have four left for adoption at this time. The others all found really good homes," said Trumbull County Dog Warden Gwen Logan.   

Humane Officer Greg Miller said the dogs were not licensed, but are in good health. "They are some very sweet dogs, and they're ready to go," Miller said.

The kennel does offer a program that allows you to actually take a dog for a test drive. "We call it Foster to Adopt. You can take one of these dogs home and try it out in the home, see if it's a good fit, and if it isn't, just bring it back," Logan said

The adoption fee is $50 dollars. That includes a micro-chip, flea and tick treatment, worming and other medications if needed, and a first round of shots.

Right now the kennel still must keep some dogs in outdoor cages due to a lack of space.  The warden says they have a good mix of dogs and is hoping for more adoptions to good homes. "Please come out and see what we have, we would appreciate it," said Logan. 

The Trumbull County Dog Kennel is located at 7501 Anderson Avenue in Warren.
