Other ways you can help: Transport a dog for them, adopt a dog from a rescue so that they can make room for another from the pound, donate to a rescue to allow them to vaccinate and neuter a rescued dog. PLEASE RESCUE A DOG
In the past 5 years only two dogs at the shelter have been euthanized and that was due to illness and aggression. We would like to thank the Friends of Wyandot County Dog Shelter, the rescues and adopters that pulled the dogs, the people that transported them, everyone that helped publicize the plight of the homeless dogs at this facility and Wyandot County and their employees for their cooperation.
