The Huron County dog warden's office continues to do everything it can to find homes for dogs.

From Jan. 16 to April 15, the dog warden's staff "impounded 85 dogs, adopted out 40, with 23 claimed by the owner, six deceased due to sickness and we have 11 still at the pound," Huron County Dog Warden Gary Ousley said.

The dog pound capacity is 23 dogs, Ousley said.

maybe if the dog pound would do more advertising, and add more kennels, they wouldnt have to KILL innocent dogs!!! with just a little effort , we wouldnt have to worry about putting dogs down!!!

Unfortunately it will take more than effort - advertising and money will take more MONEY. If more people would spay and neuter their pets and quit trying to be "breeders", maybe all these unwanted dogs could find a home.

Another problem is there are just too many dog breeders out there. We have an overpopulation of dogs and cats, and people still want to try to make a buck.

Some people have had to give up their pets, some are just idiots who do not know how to properly take care of pets. And too few are getting spayed and neutered.

Just sayin'...

Now The Rest of...

Good job, great effort by the dog warden, the commissioners should stand up and give him additional funding to save more innocent dogs.
