The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) Animal Rescue Team assisted with disaster relief in the hurricane affected areas. The HSUS transported more than 60 dogs from Horry County Animal Care Center to Emergency Placement Partners in Pennsylvania and Ohio. The Wood County Humane Society (WCHS) is one of the shelters in this partnership. Horry County Animal Care Center is being cleared to take in other displaced animals from flood zone area.
The WCHS had officially received more than 10 dogs of varying sizes, ages, and breeds. As of Tuesday, October 18th the dogs are available for adoption, five have already found permanent homes. One of the dogs did test positive for heart worm and will need foster care while recovering. Please feel free to contact the shelter with any questions or inquiries at 419-352-7339.
The WCHS, located in Bowling Green, Ohio, is a private, non-profit managed admission shelter providing care for homeless and abused pets and investigating cruelty complaints in Wood County. The organization receives no funding from government organizations, The United Way, or national humane organizations, instead relying on earned revenue and the generosity of individual donors and businesses to fund our programs such as Safe Haven and food assistance programs, spay/neuter transport, and educational presentations. The WCHS provides care for hundreds of animals each year—from dogs and cats, to horses, goats, and pocket pets. All animals admitted into our adoption program are housed and cared for as long as it takes to find their fur-ever home. For more information on adopting and/or volunteering, see:
