After the cessation of events in the community during Covid, the Humane Society is ready to return to the community and find permanent homes for its animals.

FINDLAY, Ohio – If you’re looking for a new furry family member or want to help the Humane Society take care of your animals, there are several options this weekend.

After several years of rest during the pandemic, c Humane Society and SPCA are ready to re-adopt adoption activities in the community.

On Saturday, they hold two separate events: one in Great Lakes Toyota Subaru and the second in East Campus Findlay YMCA.

The Humane Society said that during most of the pandemic the adoptions were actually greatly increased, but they have now settled, resulting in about 125 animals now on hand for adoption.

“Because if we were only by appointment, people were 100% intending to adopt, so they knew they were coming here to adopt. Now people who pass by just want to see pets, so they’re not 100% sure . ”said Natalie Refit, operations manager.

Organizers said most of the animals that will be present at these events will be immediately ready to take home.

“All the animals that are currently being adopted have already been neutered and neutered and are ready to go out,” said executive director Paula Krug. “If we pick up any foster kittens, they may not be quite ready to go out because they need to be at least 8 to 9 weeks old, and then the doctor can do the surgery. Then we get them out pretty quickly. ”

Along with attempts to link these animals to a potential future home at these two adoption events, they are also asking people who attend to bring donated items that are on the regular wish list of the Humane Society and the SPCA.

You can find the list at Humane Society and SPCA website with the standard items on which they depend through donations.

Need things like blankets and sheets, peanut butter, disinfectants, pumpkins and linen items.

“Detergent because we have conventional washing machines and dryers, so liquid HE. Bleach, just ordinary household items, ”Krug said.

The first event in the Toyota Subaru Great Lakes takes place on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., followed by an event at the Findlay YMCA East campus from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
