OHIO VALLEY — Following the rescue of 69 animals earlier this month from unsafe and unsanitary conditions at a home on Wagoner Road in Gallia County, Humane Society of the United States officials say the puppies and dogs are recovering and preparing for placement into new homes.
The animals will be moved to emergency placement partners of the Humane Society of the United States in Maine, Ohio and West Virginia, where they will receive care and have time to heal before they get a second chance. The Citizens for Human Action Animal Shelter, Cleveland Animal Protective League, the Humane Society of Greater Akron, all in Ohio, as well as the Preston County Animal Shelter in West Virginia and the Greater Androscoggin Humane Society will all have animals from the Wagoner Road rescue.
Kim Alboum, director of the EPP program for The HSUS said,“Our emergency placement partners are a crucial element in the Humane Society of the United States’ efforts to rescue abused animals. Our partners are ready to get these cruelty survivors started on the next part of their journey.”
The HSUS is providing financial assistance to the groups to help with initial costs.
