Dogtown: Influx of dogs at the shelter

Dogtown: Influx of dogs at the shelter

The start of 2020 brought a lot of dogs into the shelter. Hard to tell whether that was a result of scary fireworks, owners out of town, wind opening gates or what, but we are hoping that they will still be claimed by their owners.  For now, the shelter population is higher than we’d like.

Some of the cats and dogs that arrive at the Humboldt County Animal Shelter are in need of veterinary care due to illness or injury.  The shelter’s funding covers the initial vaccinations, worming and flea medication for all the incoming animals, plus spays and neuters before the adoptable cats and dogs may leave the shelter.
