Franklin Co. Dog Shelter Seeking Foster Families at Spring Cleaning Event


COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) – The Franklin County Dog Adoption and Shelter Center is asking for volunteers over an upcoming weekend to house or foster dogs while staff clean the building.

Starting Friday, staff will organize and clean the Franklin County Dog Shelter beginning May 13 to keep it running smoothly, according to a statement.

During the cleanup, the shelter asks community volunteers to help in the following ways:

  • Host a shelter dog for a sleepover May 13-15. The community can come to the shelter and house a shelter dog for the weekend. Pick-ups will take place on Friday, May 13 from 3 to 7 p.m. and drop-offs will take place on Sunday, May 15 during normal business hours.
  • Host a rescue dog for a “Dog-venture” day. The community can come to the shelter and house a shelter dog for a day on Saturday, May 14, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Participants will receive a list of places where dogs can be visited in Franklin County. (ex: going to the park, going for a hike or just hanging out at your house.) Shelter dogs must be brought back the same day before 4 p.m.
  • Help walk the dogs at the shelter. The community can come to the shelter and sign up to walk and play with the shelter dogs on May 14.
  • Help with cleaning at the refuge. The community is invited to come to the shelter and help staff with cleanup and organizing efforts on May 14.
