Great News - 2/17/16

We are thrilled to announce, Pencil now Chance has been adopted. He will be completing his recovery with his new mom. He left on Saturday and has done very well over the weekend. His mom will be providing updates periodically on Chance, please check our Facebook page for updates. We would like to thank all of you for following his progress and for trying to assist us as much as possible in finding who set the trap and where he originally came from. At the time he came into the shelter he weighed in at 29 lbs. When he left he was a much healthier 40 lbs! He will need continued medical care and his mom is taking care of that. We know he will have a great life! Chance recovering well and in a new home.

**Warning** Graphic photo's. This is how Chance came to us at the shelter.

Scared dog caught and is back home!

On 1/29/16 we received a call from Harrison Hicks and Jade Ahern that his brand new rescue dog (he had gotten only a few days prior) had gotten away from him. The dog was too scared to come home on her own. They requested our assistance. We came out and set a humane trap to help the owner catch the dog. After 5 days, with the help of The Ontario County Humane Society, Lost Dogs of the Fingerlakes, and the community Karma was safely in the trap and is now home.

I can't believe I got my head stuck!

The officers working for the Ontario County Humane Society respond to all types of emergency situations. A HUGE thank you to the Phelps Fire Department for the quick response and assistance in rescuing a dog from an old tire. This hound mix must have found something very exciting under the tire to stick his head inside(Mouse Maybe?). Other efforts were made to extricate the dog but the Fire Department came to the rescue using the jaws of life shears to free the dog.

I can't look, tell me when it's over!

When this curious little kitty somehow crawled into a pipe and got stuck, the owners didn't know how to get him out! They called the Officers at the Ontario County Humane Society for assistance and once on site the extraction took just five minutes. Everyone, especially the kitty, was happy to have that adventure behind them.
