The Humane Society of the Ohio Valley has been in existence for 150 years and can boast of being the oldest organization of its kind in the State of Ohio and one of the oldest in the USA. We are located at 90 Mount Tom Road, Marietta, Ohio and easy to find. From State Route 7 North, turn onto County House Lane at the light in front of Lowes. You will drive just under a mile to the top of a hill and turn right onto Mt. Tom Road across from the Washington County Home, past a big white barn on your left, and in a curve, you will take the gravel road and we are at the end of that road. As a non-profit 501c3 organization, we rely heavily on public donations. Though we have a small contract with Washington County and the City of Marietta to house stray animals picked up by the County Dog Warden, we ourselves have 2 Humane Officers that investigate cases of abuse and neglect , pick up strays and accept public surrender (Washington County residents only) of unwanted animals.We are not a “no-kill” shelter but we have one of the highest successful rehoming rates in the nation. This is accomplished through our work with many rescue groups and foster homes, Petfinder's website, and Facebook. During 2013, we took in over 2500 hundred animals. That means that we are constantly in need of donations of supplies like dog and cat food and cleaning supplies as well as donated cash to cover our operating expenses. Our staff and board are dedicated to finding perfect homes for the animals that come through our doors as well as rehabilitating animals from abusive situations. Most that come to us scared and labeled aggressive become sweet, loving pets. Please stop in for a visit or call us at 740-373-5959
