Give a Wag! Gives to Wooster Shelters

The Wayne County Dog Shelter is a dog shelter that serves Wooster and the surrounding area. Their mission is to care for unwanted animals in a loving a compassionate way and to promote a humane and animal-friendly community through community outreach and education. They aim to reduce the stray dog population and help save more than 1,000 dogs per year. 

Community involvement and education are near and dear to this shelter's heart, so proper education is one of their biggest community goals. They offer a variety of programs on the importance of spaying and neutering, the necessity of licensing your dog, and how to be a loving and responsible dog owner. Community education programs include classes such as pet care, safety around animals, animal cruelty, and more. They also host a wide range of dog-centered and dog-friendly events throughout the year. They have an annual Bark Ball, Pet Safety and Preparedness Fair, Howl'o'Ween dog walk, and yearly Santa Paw open house at their shelter. 

With a similar mission, the Wayne County Humane Society is a no-kill shelter and is dedicated to finding a home for every adoptable pet, reducing the number of unwanted animals in the community, and rehabilitating animals. They have been in operation since 1973 and have gone through many transitions over the years. 

Most recently, they have become a smaller, more intimate and independent non-profit shelter. Therefore, they rely on the community heavily to help support their shelter and mission. They encourage members of the community the volunteer at the shelter and involve the community as much as possible. They do a bunch of adoption events throughout the year, have photos with Santa during the holidays for pets and families, and host fundraisers like summer clambakes to help support their shelter.
