Adoptable dogs from Huntington County Humane Society came out to meet the public at Orscheln’s Farm & Home in Huntington May 7 in hopes of finding their furever family.
“We wanted to give the dogs another opportunity to meet the community in a different way,” said HCHS board member Allison Caley.
“This is a really good experience for the dogs and gets them out of the shelter environment,” she said.
HCHS is a no-kill shelter. They usually have an average of 10 – 15 dogs and 20 cats available for adoption.
The shelter provides the animals with care, shelter, and life-saving medical treatment if necessary and helps place them.
In 2021, HCHS cared for more than 1,000 animals.
There is an adoption fee, which covers the cost of spay/neutering, deworming, microchiping, and rabies vaccination, flea and tick mediction, and other vaccinations.
The adoption fee is $125 for dogs and $75 for cats. However, some animals’ adoption fees are sponsored.
HCHS welcomes donations of money and needed supplies.
Supply wish lists are available on Amazon and Chewy.
Additionally, volunteers and foster homes are needed.
HCHS is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday, noon – 6 p.m. and Saturday, 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.
