    Canine Cruelty Investigations

    We respond to and investigate over 1200 reports of canine cruelty and neglect each year. Ohio State laws regarding this issue are poorly written and quite antiquated. In most cases charges are not filed. Much effort is given, however, to educating and working with the owner to assist in the care and comfort of the pet. Please contact us at 898-4457 whenever you are concerned over the welfare of a dog. Every legal attempt will be made to insure the pet's well-being.

    Highlights
    Bark Park Big Hill - Closing

    The time has come. Some of you may have noticed the large "patches" on the hill. With the constant rain and weather, the hill hasn't been keeping up appearances. We received word from the Solid Waste folks that November 12, 2014, the main hill will close for the winter. In the interim, please stay away from the patches and any cones that have been put out. These mark areas that are either undergoing refurbishment or repair. On a positive note, a grant application has been submitted for new furniture and replacement trash receptacles for the park. We will keep everyone posted on the developments. Sonny's Acres will remain open throughout the winter season.

    Mingle With Our Mutts
