Looking for a great companion? Visit the Perry County Dog Shelter in New Lexington. Each week The Perry County Tribune features a puppy or dog who may be at the shelter awaiting a new home. If you think you would like to visit the shelter call the office at 740-342-3795 (during office hours) or visit the Perry County Dog Shelter website at: The Dog Shelter e-mail address is Adoptable dogs at the shelter can be found on the Internet. The adoption fee is $116 if the animal has already been spayed or neutered, $80 if the animal has not been spayed or neutered and the adopter will receive a discount coupon for Amanda Animal Hospital in Lancaster to have it done.

The “well puppy” project is a service offered to healthy dogs purchased from the Perry County Dog Shelter. The dogs are on a first come first serve basis. Present photo I.D. at the front desk, answer a few questions, sign a few forms, pay the required fees and your friend is ready to go home with you. All dogs purchased at our shelter appear healthy, however, it is recommended you take the animal to a vet as soon as it leaves the shelter. The shelter provides no guarantee nor is there any refund of any kind.
