Homes for Furry Friends

Please join us for a special adoption event at The Animal Shelter of Muskingum County. During this event, if you adopt a dog or cat you may receive a locally-made doghouse or cat box.

The event will take place on Saturday, April, 18, 2015 from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. at The Animal Shelter of Muskingum County located at 1430 Newark Road, Zanesville, Ohio. The doghouses and cat boxes will be on a first come first served basis.

Homes for Furry Friends is an opportunity to give a dog or cat a good home while receiving a doghouse or cat box made by the Carpentry students of the Mid-East Career and Technology Centers, AmeriCorps members, and other volunteers. The event is a collaboration among The Animal Shelter of Muskingum County, AmeriCorps, the Veterans’ Club and Pathways to Engineering program from Zane State College, Mid-East Career and Technology Centers, Scholarship Central, and The Muskingum County Community Foundation.
