BROWN COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -
It was a busy Friday at the Brown County Animal Shelter, as dog lovers from the surrounding area and
beyond found out about the 'urgent list'.
The shelter's General Manager
Krista Kiskaden says it's a list of dogs that will be put down if no one adopts
"We're just over full. It seems like for every dog that goes
out, we're getting two or three more in," said Kiskaden.
"I just thought that, you know, a dog deserves a chance to find a
family, and if, you know, if we could bring one into our family that would be
one less that's likely to be put down," said Richmond.
Annette Novesl's family also adopted a dog.
Novesl says euthanasia is an option that they just can't stomach.
unfortunate that people allow dogs to come into this world and don't take the
responsibility to give them a good home and a good life, and it's not fair to
the dogs to not have an opportunity to have a family that loves them and a warm
place to sleep," she said.
Anne Stoner from Lexington says it's criminal the way people
abandon unwanted pets.
"It's awful. I feel like as a society we've failed. We
failed the animals. We failed the dogs."
Dogs like 8-year-old Thread are a little harder to adopt because of their age, but are generally good-natured and with a little
TLC, they make great pets.
Thanks to some last minute adoptions, no dogs were euthanized on Friday.
However, the Brown County Animal Shelter tells FOX19 as more dogs come in, those
still at the shelter need good homes before it's too late.
