The Athens County Humane Society is
committed to promoting better care and
compassion for animals, providing
permanent homes with responsible
caregivers for our companion animals,
and reducing abandonment and
euthanasia of healthy animals by providing
spay and neuter assistance and education.
This blog will cover issues relevant to dog
and cat care, abuse and neglect stories,
coverage of political action, and more.
