Help save 50 dogs Saturday


An event, billed as a dog adopt-a-thon, will be from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday at the Mahoning County dog pound, 589 Industrial Road.

About 50 dogs will be available for adoption.

The adoption fee is $42.50 per dog under age three months and $50 for dogs older than three months.

For dogs that haven’t had a rabies shot and haven’t been spayed or neutered, an additional $80 is charged for those services.

All fees must be paid in cash at the time of adoption.

With the dog pound almost filled to capacity, the event is part of the pound’s effort to maximize adoptions and minimize the number of dogs that must be euthanized, said John Klenec, deputy dog warden.
