Animal Shelter Society Pet of the Week, Announces Soft Opening

Local News

MUSKINGUM COUNTY, Ohio- The Animal Shelter Society has named Jillian its pet of the week.

Jillian is a three month old American Pit Bull, Terrier mix. She came to the shelter in May and while her brother was recently adopted, Jillian is looking to find her forever home.

She loves attention and is very active.

“She does well with cats and dogs. She would do well in a home that has younger children, maybe eight to ten year old’s. She just loves to play and is super friendly… She’d be a great family pet,” Animal Shelter Society Board of Directors Treasurer Josh Agin said.

The Animal Shelter Society is hosting its third annual Putt For Paws Golf Outing on July 17. The event will take place at the Green Valley Golf Club. The shelter is looking for teams and accepting team registrations. 

In addition, the shelter is happy to announce a soft reopening starting Tuesday, June 15. If you have an approved adoption application, you will be able to come see your future pet.

“It’s a really solid team and we come together and see what we can do for our community. We’re very fortunate in Muskingum County because every time we put out a plea for something, our community comes through for us, so now we’re coming back to our community,” Animal Shelter Society General Manager April Cohagen-Gibson said.

Customer service hours remain 11:00 to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Appointments will be from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday with Wednesdays being from 1:00 to 6:00 p.m.
