Amid Flood Fears, Morrow Co. Shelter Officials Seek Temporary Homes for Dogs
MORROW COUNTY, Ohio (Rob Wells/Ken Hines) -- Operators of a central Ohio dog shelter hope to find temporary homes for their animals to prepare for possible flooding that could result from melting snow.
Three dogs housed at the Morrow County Dog Shelter died amid flooding in 2011. The facility's operators hope to avoid a repeat occurrence this year, and have already found alternative accommodations for six animals.
Shelter officials hope to find temporary homes for the remaining nine dogs by Thursday.
A possible solution to the problem of flooding at the shelter is to move operations to a new facility, but county leaders say they have only $25,000 of $300,000 needed to complete the project.
