Bowling Green, OH – Want to help with Hurricane Harvey relief from right here in Wood County? You can by adopting a dog from the Wood County Humane Society (WCHS).
There have been 24 dogs brought to the WCHS from Texas. The dogs are a variety of mixes and sizes, and many are puppies. All of the dogs were in Texas shelters before the hurricane hit, and were relocated to shelters around the nation to make room for the incoming dogs after the storm.
“Two of the dogs are heartworm positive and will require treatment,” said April McCurdy, Behavior and Training Coordinator at the WCHS. “All of the dogs will be seen by our vet, receive vaccines and be spayed or neutered before going up for adoption.”
The WCHS is Wood County’s local animal shelter with a mission of providing treatment and care to all animals in the county while trying to find homes for the ones that do not have them. Once the dogs are listed for adoption, those interested can visit woodcountyhumanesociety.org and fill out a survey and adoption questionnaire to get the process started.
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:
