GEORGETOWN, Ohio -- All eight dogs at the Brown County Animal Shelter who were scheduled to be euthanized if not adopted by Friday morning have been claimed, the shelter said Thursday evening.
Kliff , a 5-year-old male American Staffordshire Terrier, was the last dog to have paperwork filled out for his adoption Thursday.
Shelter Operations Manager Krista Kiskaden said his adoption is considered "pending" during the paperwork process, but he has been "saved." He is scheduled to have a "meet and greet" with his potential owners on Saturday.
Kiskaden said 10 dogs at the shelter were adopted and two were rescued Thursday.
“It was an amazing day,” Kiskaden told WCPO.
Kiskaden said several people who approached the shelter to rescue one of the dogs on the urgent list referenced WCPO's story.
The shelter posted photos and videos of each dog on its Facebook page on Sept. 13, hoping to spread the word. But by Wednesday, not a single dog was adopted.
“We have 35 dogs kenneled in a 32-kennel facility. The situation is dire,” Shelter Operations Manager Krista Kiskaden said Wednesday evening. “The dogs are just not moving out in time.”
Kiskaden said the shelter is overcrowded about once a month, but this is the third time this month they are without room.
“We’re just getting more and more dogs lately and we have no room for them,” she said.
The adoption fee for a dog at the shelter is $25 -- which includes spaying, neutering and a booster shot. The shelter also charges $12 for a license, making the total $37.
The shelter is located at 100 Veterans Boulevard in Georgetown.
