Thank You Banfield Charitable Trust
Grant allowing HSOV to offer veterinary

Veterinary Assistance Available Through Humane Society of the Ohio Valley
Made Available by a Grant from Banfield Charitable Trust
Banfield Charitable Trust is a national nonprofit working to keep pets and people together
The Humane Society of the Ohio Valley is now able to provide limited financial assistance for veterinary care to qualified pet owners in Washington County, Ohio. Funds cannot be given for spay or neuter, but can be given for other needed vet care, routine or emergency.
To qualify for assistance, you must complete a form www.hsov.org/forms/Veterinary-Assistance-Application-2015.pdf and submit it to the Humane Society for review. Forms are available from your veterinarian, at the Humane Society, or on the Humane Society’s website: www.hsov.org
Since funds are limited, veterinary assistance will be dispersed on a first come, first served basis to those who meet strict financial guidelines. We require that your veterinarian examine your pet so that you know what veterinarian care is needed. Veterinary assistance given will be paid directly to the veterinarian who provides care for your pet.
For more information please call us at 740-373-5959
We desperately need cat food. We have quite a bit of kitten food and quite a bit of dog food, but the cat's food is very low. We currently have over 100 cats/kittens in the shelter and in foster care. There are a lot of hungry mouths to feed. Please help the cats with a donation if you can.
The HSOV is now offering a microchipping service for dogs and cats at a very reasonable cost .. $20 for the microchip and no registration fee. This is a wonderful way to ensure that your pet has the best chance of being reunited with you in the event that he/she is lost. All veterinarians and animal shelters (including HSOV) have microchip scanners and can locate owners of microchipped dogs and cats.. this is especially helpful if dog tags/collars are missing and wonderful for cats since they tend to wear breakaway collars for their safety.
This microchipping service is available to all pet owners and is not limited to HSOV animal adopters.
Our pets (peeves) have names: Gas Bill, Electric Bill, Water Bill, Sewer Bill, and Telephone Bill. We feed them – money – every month! We’ve tamed them a little, but just can’t seem to learn to love them!
Happily, our pet peeves are now available for adoption!
We will continue to take care of them, if you will help us feed them. Some of them are large and eat a lot (of money) so we need several adopters for those. If you adopt part of a pet peeve for any month of the next year ($150 each) you get to name one of the nameless dogs who enter our shelter the month of the pet peeve adopted. There are only 10 chances to adopt a pet peeve each month along with the naming rights and no limit to the number of adoptions/naming rights per person.
If interested, please provide us one male and one female name (or one unisex name) with your $150 adoption fee. Let us know the month for which you are adopting a pet peeve. When we give a dog the name you selected, we will give you credit for the name on our Facebook page. As a bonus, your “adoption fee” is considered a donation and is tax deductible!
