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

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.
