The Franklin County Dog Shelter and Adoption Center will be amending its hours due to the Coronavirus.
The shelter and Community Pet Food Pantry will be closing to the public on Wednesdays and Fridays and the hours available to rescues will also be trimmed starting this week to allow for staffing and social distancing.
Public access was already limited after the start of the outbreak to appointments only for adoption. Those public appointments are still available, but will not occur on Wednesdays or Fridays.
Owner redemption and rescue pickups will only available Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays between the hours of 3:00 p.m. – 7 p.m.
Rescues are also welcome to come by appointment during normal business hours on Tuesday, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays.
Per the Executive Order from the Mayor of Columbus, face coverings are required to enter our facility.
The shelter will continue essential services during its closure days. Enforcement activities will continue everyday as usual.
The shelter continues to care for the dogs in its care and currently has an extended sleepover available to Franklin County residents. The sleepover allows the public to foster a dog. Thank you to our community as we continue to serve every resident every day.
