To the editor:
We are writing to tell your readers about a recently formed non-profit animal welfare organization in Harrison County, Helping Hounds Find Homes. Its objective is to rescue and transport homeless dogs, cats, puppies and kittens to non-profit, no kill shelters and foster homes where the animals will await adoption to forever homes.
In 2010, 2,307 unwanted dogs and cats entered Flora Shropshire Animal Shelter. Of that number 437 were adopted, 130 were returned to owners, 381 went to rescue and 950 were euthanized.
