Woof Woof! Join Besa at Franklin County Dog Shelter & Adoption Center, and support local furry friends with a sweet treat! 

Franklin County Dog Shelter & Adoption Center is committed to saving lives. Their shelter is the largest county shelter in Ohio. Last year they took in 11,697 dogs and puppies, including all stray dogs in the county as well as owner surrenders and unwanted litters of puppies.

KONGs, used in shelters everywhere, provide endless entertainment and comfort for dogs. They can be used to dispense treats for chewing or for fetching, since their playful shape gives them an unpredictable, stimulating bounce.  When animals are enjoying KONG toys, they are less likely to bark, so noise levels drop, which reduces the stress in these environments. Less stress results in happier, more adoptable animals.

As a Besa volunteer, we'll stuff KONG toys with treats and peanut butter. 

  • A lead volunteer from FCDSAC will provide a brief training and orientation.
  • Casual clothing is encouraged. 
  • This is a teen friendly opportunity! 
  • Parking Info: parking is available on-site.
