Lawrence County Humane Society of Ironton, OH is no longer operating the Ironton Pet Shelter. We are looking for volunteers to foster animals in their own homes until we can find them permanent homes.
See our Facebook page for more information about the Lawrence County Humane Society

Who are we?
The Lawrence County Humane Society of Ohio is a nonprofit organization that aids in animal rescue and spaying/neutering. We are currently expanded our horizons and looking for helpful volunteers of all ages that care for animals and their safety. We exist to promote animal health and rescue. If interested in learning more about us and our cause, we meet the last Monday of every month at the Ironton City Building at 7pm. You may also contact one of our volunteers. Please join the fight for those who cannot fight for themselves. We do not operate the Lawrence County Animal Shelter/Dog Pound. If you are willing to foster an animal temporarily, please let us know. Thank You!

Is Your Dog Missing?
If you have lost your dog please visit the Lawrence County Animal Shelter to see if your dog is there as our description of your dog may not be the same as your description.

Please help STOP THE SENSELESS SLAUGHTER of millions of pets every year in shelters across the USA. Here are three ways to save the lives of dogs:
  • Tag your dog: Attach an engraved disc to your dogs collar. Include your address and contact phone numbers so that your dog can be returned to you. This can save the life of your dog!
  • Microchip your dog: This allows the dog warden or a vet to identify the owner of a dog, even if the tag has fallen off, so that your dog can be returned to you. This can save the life of your dog!
  • Train your dog to walk with you and socialise it so that it does not run away.
  • Spay or neuter your pet. Neutered dogs tend not to go looking for females. They are also less aggressive with people and other dogs. It can also prevent your dog developing tumours in later life.
