The Wyandot County Humane Society (WCHS) is the only shelter of its kind in the Northwest/North central Ohio region. We are staffed 8am-10pm, 7 days a week, 365 days a year for taking in animals. Please call ahead to surrender large animals, unusual animals, giant breed dogs, and groups of three or more animals. (There is always a volunteer on duty overnight for emergencies.) We never turn any animal away, regardless of the kind of animal (domestic animals, wildlife, livestock, exotics), what county it is from or the reason it has to be surrendered. In addition, there is never any charge for surrendering an animal (although donations are always very much needed and appreciated!).




WCHS is also home to its sister organization, the only low-cost spay/neuter program in the area, HOPE (Helping Our Pets Everywhere). HOPE is open to everyone, regardless of level of income or county of residence. Our prices range from $25 - $45 for cats and $45 - $100 for dogs. Call (419)294-4477 for more information.


Also part of the WCHS family is the Wyandot County Equine Rescue, the only equine rescue in our area that will take any horse regardless of its condition and needs. Appointments are necessary to bring an equine, but we try to be as flexible as possible.
