(Bowling Green)- Mother’s Day is today– Sunday, May 8th. An international celebration that honors motherhood and maternal bonds in families. Flowers and greeting cards are a few of the most popular ways to show appreciation for mothers. Wood County Humane Society (WCHS) is suggesting to celebrate in another way this year.
Come to the shelter, adopt an animal, and become a new mom, or dad, of a furry forever friend. In observation of the holiday, WCHS is running an adoption event on Mother’s Day that all female animals will be half off the regular adoption fee. Shelter hours for the event are 12:00pm to 4:00pm. If you have any questions in regards to the adoptions or Wood County Humane Society please call 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:
