We feel it’s very important to have an active presence in our community.  There are so many dogs in our area that need a helping hand, and we pride ourselves on being out on the front line.

  • All About Dogs has a partnership with Rescue Village!  We have become a satellite/off-site adoption location of Rescue Village. We participate in Rescue Village’s foster program. We host adoptable dogs from Rescue Village and try to find permanent homes for them.
  • We provide a Geauga Dog Shelter donation bin in our store to collect much needed items for the stray dogs.
  • Our Links & Resources page provides a variety of local businesses, organizations and animal welfare groups.

We attend many local dogs rescue fundraising events to give support as they raise money to help the dogs in their care.  So, keep your eyes open and when you spot us stop over to say ‘hello’.


Geauga Dog Shelter

The Geauga Dog Shelter is the county dog pound, charged with picking up and taking care of all the stray dogs in Geauga County, Ohio. We take in about 700 dogs each year and take care of them until we can find their owner or find them new homes. Despite limited budget and limited personnel, we have a 97% rate for return to owner/adoptions. We can do this because you help. Our volunteers walk, bathe, and generally socialize the dogs so they are adoptable. Come on up and learn what you can do as a volunteer. We also appreciate the donations you give because they allow us to provide much needed medical care and food and to keep the shelter clean and disinfected. The Geauga County Dog Shelter does not receive any general tax funds–we are funded by the license fee (we get $13.50 for every $15.00 license), adoption and redemption fees and donations. Without your generous donations we could not do what we do. When you buy your next license think about what you are helping to do: 1) keeping your dog safe so if he/she gets lost we can locate you; 2) helping to provide for the 700+ strays we get in every year.

For more information about the Geauga Dog Shelter and the dogs they have available for adoption please check them out on PetFinder or their Facebook page.
