Cans For Canines and Cats Program

The Animal Shelter Society, Inc. is asking for donations of aluminum cans. We are collecting cans to be recycled and the money from this effort will be used to provide housing, medical care and to find "fur"ever homes for the homeless pets in our community.

Everyone in Zanesville, Ohio and surrounding areas are urged to bring in donations of aluminum cans for this cause. These may be dropped off at the Animal Shelter Society, Inc., 1430 Newark Road, Zanesville, Ohio.  

For more information, please contact the Shelter at 740-452-1077.

Sponsorship Program

This Program helps our hard to adopt pets; those that may be too old, too big, or physically challenged find a loving home throughout our community by reducing our regular adoption fee.

How does this program work?

You, as a sponsor, would pay a portion of the regular adoption fee and the new adopter would pay the balance. 

If you are interested in sponsoring a pet for adoption, please call us for details at (740) 452-1077 or email us at

Sponsor a Kennel Program

For a donation of $ 100.00 a sign with your business logo, website and phone number will be proudly displayed on a plaque in the Animal Shelter Society's Lobby for one year!  Great for individuals too!

Special Thanks to our Kennel Sponsors!
