Devine Animal Control is in need of blankets and large towels, not just during the cold months, but throughout the year.  In addition to providing extra warmth when needed, they are used for injured pets, female dogs or cats in heat and for any other need that arises.  To address a misconception, the City has always had electric heaters on separate thermostats for each one of our 12 Kennels.  We also have two spare heaters and thermostats.

Hours of Operation: Officers are on duty for emergencies seven days a week.

Monday – Friday

7:00 am – 4:00 pm


The office is open for

  • Adoptions
  • Reclaims
  • Animal Control needs

We are currently closed on  Weekends and Holidays.

After hours and weekend calls are answered by the Medina County Sheriff’s Office.
