Photograph of the shelter


COVID 19 has kind of set us back.  We are struggling as are most facilities to keep up services and continue to prevent suffering.  The Wyandot County Humane Society (WCHS) is the only shelter of its kind in the Northwest/North central Ohio region.  While all our staff was laid off, we have now been able to recall all but a few of our dedicated workers because of the Payroll Protection Plan loan.  We still have somewhat reduced hours for surrenders—9 am till 8 pm, and after 8 pm for emergencies only please. Please call ahead to surrender animals. We will do the paperwork over the phone, and then call when you arrive in the parking lot.  Someone will come to your car to assist you.  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.   Adoptions are also by appointment, and you can view some of our adoptable animals on  For details see our Adoption page.
