COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — Rescues and vendors from around central Ohio will showcase adoptable dogs at the Franklin County Dog Shelter and Adoption Center.

The event is Saturday, June 4 from noon until 3 p.m., and the event is free and open to the public. The FCDS is running an $18 adoption special during that time as well. Visitors can find dogs like two-year-old Addie. She is a pit bull mix weighing 47 pounds and is mostly black with a patch of white on her neck.

Addie is a shelter favorite who looks forward to her caretaker’s attention and enjoys learning commands when treats are available. She is a calm dog that has been at the FCDS since the beginning of April.

FCDS recent statistics

  • 129 dogs left the building between May 23 and May 30 – 73 dogs have gone to their foster-to-adopt home, and 56 dogs were adopted
  • 181 dogs are currently available for adoption.
  • All dogs that have been available for adoption for more than 14 days can be adopted for just $18, which is the price of a dog license.
