HSOV in Need of TEMPORARY Foster Homes due to New Roof and Drain being Installed

HSOV (Humane Society of the Ohio Valley) is under construction and TEMPORARY foster homes are urgently needed.

We are currently having a new roof and drain system installed and are temporarily unable to house any dogs in the area that is being repaired. The intake of dogs (and cats) increases dramatically during the spring and summer months and we are running out of room.

We have been very fortunate that for many years we have not had to euthanize due to lack of kennel space. Our community and supporters have always stepped up for the shelter animals and for that we are truly grateful. We are turning to you, once again, for help.

There is no cost to the foster family. You provide a loving home and the HSOV will provide the food, bowls, toys, bedding and anything that is needed.

If you are interested in becoming a foster family please download the application at this link
Applications are also available at the shelter. After you have completed the application you may either drop it off at the shelter or email to manager@hsov.org or cr_ridgway@yahoo.com.
