Stray Dogs

The Delaware County Dog Shelter (Dog Warden) is responsible for all stray dogs in Delaware County. Stray or found dogs should be reported to their agency immediately at 740-368-1915. Leave a message and you will get a call back as soon as someone is available.


The Delaware County Dog Shelter is located at 4781 County Home Rd, Delaware OH 43015 and is open Mon-Fri 8:00am-4:30pm and Sat 9:00am-12:00pm.

If you are able to, you may also take a few steps to locate an owner.

  • Click to view our Missing Pet Search Info page

  • Search our online Lost & Found Dog Database

  • File a Found Dog Report (Please upload a picture if possible. It’s very important!)

  • Check for a microchip (veterinary clinics, HSDC, and the Delaware County Dog Shelter all have microchip scanners)

Please remember it is against the law to abandon or dump an animal. Not to mention, it is very cruel. We appreciate your understanding, support, and concern for the animals!​​
