Huron County Dog Warden Gary Ousley discussed dog-pound matters with the county commissioners during their meeting at the county fair Tuesday.
"We've taken in 258 dogs this year," Ousley said. "We had 94 adopted out, 19 claimed by rescue groups, 95 claimed by their owners, 15 still at the pound, three deceased, and 41 euthanized," he said. "That 41 euthanized is a 40-percent reduction compared to last year."
About $155,000 has been generated from dog tag sales in 2013, he added.
In other animal matters, Humane Society official Bonnie Albright told the commissioners a pig is available for adoption. The pig was recently captured in the Willard area and is being housed at the Humane Society.
Also, the Conway Dog Park has a mid-November date set for a ribbon-cutting.
