Caring for Licking County Animals & Their People for 52 years

AT THE LICKING COUNTY HUMANE SOCIETY WE SAVE LIVES

  • Date Format: MM slash DD slash YYYY
  • We welcome adopters who rent, or live in an apartment or condo. We want to alert you that some landlords and management companies have size and breed restrictions, limits on number of pets, and/or require pet deposits or additional fees. We may ask to contact your landlord to make sure that the pet you choose is welcome in your complex.

***The online questionnaire is meant for out-of-county inquiries. Local inquirers are asked to visit the shelter. In person inquirers will typically get priority. We do not do out-of- state adoptions.

***Completion of the questionnaire does not guarantee you will be matched with the pet.

***PLEASE NOTE: PUPPIES WILL NOT BE HELD FOR ONLINE INQUIRERS.  IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING A PUPPY, YOU MUST VISIT THE SHELTER DURING OUR BUSINESS HOURS.

LIVE RELEASE RATE

97%
A typical rule of thumb is to determine whether a shelter saves more than 90% of its animals. That is its Live Release Rate. The annual Live Release Rate is calculated by dividing the total live outcomes (adoptions, outgoing transfers, and return to owner/guardian) by total outcomes (total live outcomes plus euthanasia not including owner/guardian requested ethanasia or died/lost in shelter/care). Today, many leaders are raising the bar and stating that the real No Kill Live Release Rate should be 95%.

Licking County Humane Society is a non-profit organization devoted to the humane treatment of animals.
