Ten dogs at the Brown County Animal Shelter face euthanization if they are not adopted this week.
GEORGETOWN, Ohio -- Ten dogs at the Brown County Animal Shelter face euthanization if they are not adopted this week.
Shelter Operations Manager Krista Kiskaden said the shelter is 12 dogs over capacity, which is causing an urgent need for adoptions.
"If we don't make some space we may have to euthanize these dogs," Kiskaden said. "We only have 32 kennels and this morning we had 44 dogs in the shelter."
The dogs must have commitments to be adopted by 5 p.m. this Wednesday, shelter officials said.
One of the dogs, an alapaha blue bulldog named Cookie, has adoption papers pending -- but that could change, Kiskaden said. As of Monday at 3:45 p.m., nine of the dogs were still in need.
Those who are interested in adopting can call the shelter at 937-378-3457. To apply for an adoption, you must fill out an application form and email it to the shelter at firstname.lastname@example.org .
