Tough times are taking a toll on the Humane Society of the Ohio Valley.
Executive Director Steven Herron says at the rate funding is coming in, the facility only has enough to last until May.
Herron says the shelter will not shut down, and they will continue having fundraisers; however, he says that's not enough.
"The economic times are showing. Even the best ones that we have every year are showing a small decline. So, we have to find it somehow, because we still have to be able to take care of the animals," Herron said.
Shelter officials met with Washington County commissioners Tuesday to discuss possible funding for next year.
They're also planning to reach out to some of the townships for help.
