Flash Flood Foster-to-Adopt Event

Posted on

This evening has been interesting to say the least! Our water main broke which flooded our basement with water. To fix the main, they will have to dig up at least the sidewalk and parking lot in front of our doors.
We will be mostly open which means our deputies will still be out on the road like normal for dogs running at large, our clerks will be there to answer the phones, and the rest of the staff will be doing their normal duties. We will not, however, be able to accept owner surrendered dogs and encourage anyone needing to purchase a dog license to do so online.
The water did not reach any of the dogs and we were told that our water would be turned on to take care of the dogs tomorrow, but we would like to place as many of our adoptable dogs in foster homes as possible during construction. Tomorrow, February 26th, from 11am-5:30pm we will be having a Flash Flood Foster-to-Adopt special to make that happen.
If you have been thinking of adding a four legged friend to your family fostering-to-adopt a dog is a great way to make sure everyone gets along and that the dog is a good fit for your lifestyle before committing to forever. To thank our amazing supporters for stepping up during this predicament, any dog that is adopted by their foster family will have a reduced adoption fee when it comes time to complete the adoption.
We will not be taking appointments for this adoption event but ask instead that when you get to the shelter you remain in your car and call us (419-213-2800) so that a staff member can come out to you. Please make sure to bring a valid photo ID and proof of current vaccinations for any dogs in your home. Please fill our the foster questionnaire if you are able before you come. Thank you so much for opening your heart and home to one of our amazing dogs!
