11 Dogs Transferred to HSWC from Huntsville, AL

Eleven dogs have been transferred from Huntsville, AL to the Humane Society of Washington County (HSWC).

Six adult dogs and five puppies were transported by the Greater Huntsville Humane Society to Hagerstown as a result of overcrowding in their shelter.

“HSWC is proud to be able to help other shelters and, in turn, save more dogs,” said Crista Kowalski, Canine Health and Behavior Coordinator. “Shelter work is truly a collaborative effort. We always have people looking to adopt dogs here in Washington County, and Huntsville has more dogs than they can place. We are grateful that the Greater Huntsville Humane Society reached out to us for help and are thrilled to place these wonderful animals with families in our community.”

The dogs, whose breeds include a Great Pyrenees mix, a Chihuahua, a Greyhound/Lab mix and several Golden Retriever/Lab mixes, arrived at the HSWC on June 2 and have since undergone health examinations. They have all been spayed and neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped and are currently available for adoption at the shelter.

Previously, HSWC has offered relief to overcrowded shelters across the country and received dogs from Puerto Rico, West Virginia, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Texas. This is the first transport to HSWC from Huntsville, AL.
