The Humane Society of the Ohio Valley is at maximum capacity for dogs and fears for the first time in three years-- they may have to put some pets down.
They ask anyone considering adopting or even fostering to do so soon. They can hold dogs for a 24 hour period. Anyone considering fostering just has to provide their name and then will be given more information about what it takes.
The Humane Society says it's getting an average of two to three dogs a day.
After the hurricane, the majority of the typical rescues are recuperating or helping north eastern areas, leaving an abundance at the shelter.
The Marietta shelter is running a special on dogs, which is a huge lose for the shelter but better than putting the dogs down.
$65 dollars for the dogs already fixed. This includes fixed, shots, and tags.
The Humane Society could also use donations for the extra dogs, detergent, bleach, food, blankets, etc.
