Wood County Humane Society gets Harvey shelter dogs


BOWLING GREEN, OH (WNWO) - We’ve been talking the past few weeks about all the amazing ways to help the people who have been affected by hurricanes Irma and Harvey, including the four-legged victims. Multiple shelters around the area have already opened their doors to animals displaced by the tragedy. And now, one more.

The Wood County Humane Society will be receiving a shipment of dog from Huston Saturday afternoon. The shelter has been working with the organization GRROWL, or Grass Roots Rescue Operation With Love.

Anywhere between 15 and 20 dogs are expected to arrive. While the shelter only has 2 dogs available for adoption at the moment, the new arrivals will put them at max capacity.

April McCurdy, behavior Specialist with Wood County Humane Society, said, “were hoping to find some foster families to help house them while we make room for them and get them ready for adoption”

Most of the dogs should be ready for adoption shortly after transfer, since they are coming from another shelter. A vet will check them over first when they arrive.

If you are willing to be a foster for one of the dogs, or you are interested in adopting one, you can contact the shelter. Their phone number is 419-352-7339.
