Humane Society of the Ohio Valley – HSOV is feeling grateful.
Our gray HSOV transport van has left for dog & cat transport heaven. It served it’s purpose for many years. We received a generous donation from C & C- Dodge/ Toyota and a matching donation from the company, Toyota. We are close to our goal of purchasing a van, which provides animals with rides to life-saving rescues, veterinary clinics and adoption events. We still need to raise about $7000 (We have about $12,000) to purchase the van pictured below. It has low mileage and safety and comfort needed to take the dogs and cats safely to new homes. Please consider … Read More

HSOV Lead Dog Kennel Tech/Humane Officer, Todd Hallock, has asked that we post a special plea for dog biscuits/treats, Purina Dog Chow, Purina Puppy Chow,and also hard rubber or soft rubber toys. Our dog kennel are completely full and we have many hungry mouths to feed… Todd was very emotional as he talked about how much the dogs look forward to treats and how disappointed they are (as are the kennel techs) when there are no special ‘good girl/good boy’ treats to reward them. And many times the dogs wait for a treat before they will go back into… Read More

This is a bit long, but if you have ever considered volunteering, please bear with me.
I began volunteering at the Humane Society of the Ohio Valley early in 2014 after seeing a plea on this very Facebook page for dog walkers. I remember walking in that first time, hearing the dogs barking, thinking “What a sad place this is. All of these animals are here have nowhere else to go.” That is a sentiment I hear a lot while interacting with people during events. Most of the comments are similar to “I appreciate what you do because I … Read More
