Note: By appointment ONLY, we will not accept cats without an appointment.


What is the purpose of “Managed Intake”?

  • To ensure the best possible care and quality of life

  • To avoid overcrowding 

  • To reduce illness, stress, and length of stay

  • To save space for the pets and strays who need it the most



Consider the following options before deciding to surrender your pet or stray:


1. Have you looked into resources to help keep your beloved pet or are you interested in adopting the stray you found in your home? 


Do you need assistance with the following: 






2. Have you considered keeping your pet, or fostering the stray you found, while trying to rehome it on your own?


3. Have you contacted organizations that are foster-based, like rescues, or that house pets and strays in a home environment instead of a kennel?



You can surrender a dog to the Humane Association of Warren County, anytime, Monday-Saturday from 11:00 AM-4:00 PM. We are closed on Sundays.


Bring your driver’s license or state ID. We CANNOT process a dog for intake without identification. 


We DO NOT accept dogs from other organizations. We will have you return the dog to the organization it originally came from. 


The intake process takes time. Please allow 20-30 minutes for this to be completed.


We do require fees when surrendering a pet. We are a 501c3 non-profit organization that is NOT supported by tax dollars. The only financial support we receive is through donations and our adoption fees.


Please bring only yourself and the pet or stray. Children, other family members, and friends are not permitted during the intake appointment. Too many people can cause more stress on pets.




If you decide to surrender your pet or stray to the Humane Association of Warren County:

  • Please call us at (513) 695-2437, Monday-Friday from 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM, to request a consultation with one of our intake specialists. 

  • Leave a message with your first and last name, address, and phone number where you can be reached. Someone from our intake team will return your call within 24-72 hours.

  • When the intake specialist returns your call, they will discuss details about your pet’s or stray’s specific needs and all options we can offer to best help them. 


What to bring to your appointment:

  • All medical records and vetting history. This will expedite the pet’s and stray’s placement into a home and shortens the length of stay in the shelter.

  • A completed pet profile from our website. This will aid us to ensure the most appropriate placement in a home.

  • The pet’s blanket/bed that harbors their scent. This helps them to transition into a foreign environment.

  • A driver’s license/ID


The intake process takes time. Please allow 20-30 minutes for your appointment to be completed.

Please bring only yourself and the pet/stray. Children, other family members, and friends are not permitted during the intake appointment. Too many people can cause more stress on the pets.
