GEORGETOWN, Ohio - The Brown County Animal Shelter is at capacity and more. The building is designed to house 32 dogs, but is currently hosting 42. The number fluctuates daily, because the dogs are either dropped off or adopted.
Krista Kiskaden is the shelter's operations managers, and said that she is trying to figure out how to keep the dogs alive through adoption. If the facility become too overpopulated, she would half to consider euthanasia. Ten dogs were adopted on Wednesday.
"I delayed any issues yesterday for a while, but it's never ending," said Kiskaden.
Issues because she gets to know the dogs' personalities while caring for them.
"[I] fall in love with these dogs and then to think that you have to make that list," said KisKaden. "Knowing that [I] might have to have that dog put down, it's not an easy thing to do. The only way I can do it is go down the list of who's been here the longest."
In the past 12 months, 27 dogs have been euthanized. That is one of Kiskaden's friends dying every two weeks. That is why Kiskaden wants to encourage anyone wanting a dog to fill out an application at her facility, or at the most convenient location to their home, because they are overflowing also.
