XENIA — Greene County Animal Care & Control (GCAC) at 641 Dayton-Xenia Road in Xenia is back to full services with a few changes. The shelter is now open to the public, but animals are seen by appointment only.

The dog adoption fee is $135 and includes a vet exam, vaccinations, heartworm test, worming treatment, flea treatment, micro chipping, and current year registration. The cat adoption fee is $90 and includes a vet exam, vaccinations, FELV testing, worming treatment, flea treatment, and micro chipping.
Dog of the week: Tonka
Photo courtesy GCAC Tonka is 1 year and 8 months old and is still waiting for his forever home. He’s a 79 pound male American Pit Bull Terrier with a fawn and white coat. According to his friends at Greene County Animal Care & Control, ”… he just lays around enjoying his daily ice cream and treats and the love he deserves. He is selective of his new friends and will require proper introductions with new doggie friends. He meets new people well but needs continued work on his manners.” If interested, visit co.greene.oh.us — Departments — Animal Control — Adoptions — Dog Adoptions and submit an application for a meet and greet.
