170 cats, 16 dogs could be homeless by year's end

The Humane Society of Sandusky County needs help.

For now 170 cats and 16 dogs call the Humane Society of Sandusky County home, but that could change within a few months according to the shelter's manager, Sharlene Wheeler.

"We are looking at probably closing the end of this year because of the funding runing out; we have already started dipping into our savings," she said.

Just last week, the shelter seized 14 animals from a home in Fremont. Animal neglect charges against the owner of those animals are pending. The most seriously injured of the animals was a 20-year-old donkey named Henry who has been making steady progress since he has been in the care of the Humane Society.
