Mahoning dog pound makes plea for pooch adoptions -- or else

Published: Fri, September 21, 2012 @ 6:25 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — The Mahoning County dog warden has issued an urgent appeal for the public to adopt dogs from the county pound.

“The kennel is full, and there is a desperate need to find homes for dogs currently housed at the pound,” said Dog Warden Matt Ditchey.

“Many dogs are at immediate risk of being euthanized if they are not adopted,” Ditchey said in a Thursday news release.

“Once we run out of space, there’s nothing I can do,” Ditchey said in an interview today. The pound now houses 53 dogs, and its capacity is about 55, he said.

if you want a great dog, before you buy one, please check out the pound. these dogs are looking for someone to love them, and are all waiting for their forever homes. their days are numbered, and they will be put to sleep to make room for the next round of unwanted dogs. at least consider going out to the pound and look at them. i'm sure that one or two will steal your heart.

Freeatlast.yes, there is a$50..00 for the dog, and an $80.00 fee for neutering. The pound won't let them go unless they're fixed. This month, if you get a black dog( they are the hardest to find homes for. people want a fancy dog),I believe they're free. Call the pound and ask. they will happily help you out.
