CAT CAPACITY REACHED
The Wayne County Humane Society has reached capacity for cats due to a late kitten season combined with an outbreak of coccidia - a highly contagious but easily treatable parasitic infection – and lower than normal adoption rates this summer. We will continue to honor our contract with the City of Wooster and accept stray cats found within Wooster city limits from City of Wooster residents, as well as any sick/injured stray cat found in Wayne County. Our mission is to provide compassionate care for abandoned, lost and neglected companion animals in Wayne County. It is our goal to never euthanize any adoptable animal for space. Therefore, we are faced with this difficult decision. The limitation will be lifted as soon as possible. This is a great time to adopt a cat because our adoption prices have never been lower. If you are looking for another way to help, please come and volunteer!
BACK TO SCHOOL SPECIALS! AUGUST 11TH THROUGH THE END OF THE MONTH!
The Wayne County Humane Society is setting a goal to spay and neuter every animal in the shelter, and we need your help! By contributing to our Spay and Neuter fund, you can help ensure that every animal leaving the shelter is spayed or neutered.
Whether your contribution to the Spay and Neuter Fund is $10 or $1,000, your dollars will go directly toward this important service.
While we are working on a long-term program to ensure that every animal leaving our shelter is spayed or neutered, we wanted to do what we could now. Every step makes a difference.
To help us meet our goal, please donate to the Spay and Neuter Fund now:
Dear Friends: We need your help. The Wayne County Humane Society is a small non-profit organization that cares for a segment of our community that is often overlooked. Providing quality medical care to our animals and adequate shelter and adoption/rescue services is our charge. These efforts are made possible by the generosity of folks who share our love for animals. We are so grateful for all of our adopters, fosters, volunteers, donors and friends throughout the year. But right now, we need a little extra help. Even a gift as small as $5 can help save lives. Those funds go directly toward giving shelter to an animal who has suffered abuse or neglect; providing quality medical care to the animals entrusted to our care; and keeping our neighborhoods safe and healthy for both animals and humans. If you are a lover of animals, please consider making a donation today to support our operations. Donate now.
