TAHS Wins $30,000 in ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K Challenge! We are thrilled to announce that TAHS won a total of $30,000 in grant prize money from this summer’s ASPCA $100K Rachel Ray Challenge. This includes a “$5,000 “Fast Start” grant for placing first in our division during the first month of the Challenge, a $5,000 grant for reaching (and exceeding) our three-month adoption goal of 878 dogs, cats, kittens and puppies, and a $20,000 grant for finishing first overall in our division for the Challenge! All of the prize money directly benefits our mission and allows us to help even more animals right here in our community. In all, 1,257 dogs, puppies, cats and kittens (plus several pocket pets that didn’t count toward the Challenge) found their forever homes in just three months - that’s an incredible number! It’s absolutely true that together we can save more lives! Thank you so much to everyone who supported us through this three-month Challenge. To all those who voted, adopted, volunteered and helped spread the word - we could not have done it without YOU! Please keep spreading the word about adoption.

Second MEGA ADOPTION EVENT A MEGA SUCCESS As part of the Challenge, we hosted our second MEGA Adoption event on October 6 and 7 outside Westfield Franklin Park Mall. The goal was to do 200 adoptions in two days. Between all six participating organizations, including TAHS, the Lucas County Dog Warden, the Lucas County Pit Crew, the Ohio Small Dog Rescue, Planned Pethood and Paws And Whiskers Shelter, we came so close to our goal with an amazing 194 adoptions in two days! We were once again amazed at how many people came out in support of the event and helped so many deserving animals find loving, wonderful homes.

Better in Pairs! We love when animals get adopted in pairs! These two pups, Wesley (left) and Layome (right) found their absolute perfect home during our second MEGA Adoption event in October. Their new mom and dad came to the event looking to adopt one dog, but could not resist or choose between these special souls - so they adopted them both! Wesley and Layome are both older dogs, each with severe skin conditions that require continued medial care. Their new mom and dad saw past their physical ailments and it was love at first sight.

We held our first MEGA Adoption event August outside the PetSmart Store in Rossford. We were thrilled to help 184 dogs, cats, kittens and puppies find their forever homes. That’s a total of 380 adoptions in just four days! (It’s important to note that none of the participating groups lowered or changed their adoption policies during the MEGA events.) Wesley and Layome found the perfect forever home

Georgie Gets a Hair Cut Late this past summer, Cruelty Office Nancy Schilb received a call about a dog left outside, tethered by a thick chain with no access to food or water. When Officer Schilb arrived, she found a severely matted dog tied next to a dog house without adequate clean water. It turns out the 8-year-old female dog had been abandoned at the home and neighbors had begun feeding her when they noticed she was not being cared for properly. When “Georgie” arrived at TAHS, our Animal Care staff had to shave her completely so that a thorough vet exam could be performed. Aside from being a bit thin and having an indentation on her neck from the metal chain, Georgie also had heartworm disease which required extensive medical treatment. As we got to know Georgie, she quickly melted hearts and became a favorite of the staff and volunteers. She was very shy at first and it took her a little time to learn to warm up to people. But once she started to learn what it was like to get affection, she couldn’t get enough! During her stay with us at TAHS, Georgie reminded all of us what forgiving and loving souls dogs are. She was adopted very quickly and is now in a wonderful, loving home where she is spoiled rotten.

Did you know ? The Toledo Area Humane Society has two full-time cruelty agents who enforce animal cruelty laws in Lucas County. Between them, Officer Gene Boros and Officer Nancy Schilb receive and investigate over 2,000 complaints each year. If you witness someone hurting an animal, or if you see an animal that looks sick, injured or like it does not have adequate food, water or shelter please contact us. All calls and emails are kept confidential. Here are two easy ways you can help: 1) Report animal cruelty to our hotline at 419-891-9777 or via email to cruelty@toledoareahumanesociety.org. 2) Donate to help keep our Cruelty Agents on the road. You can designate your donation by indicating “Restricted for Cruelty Division”. Georgie’s Cruelty case is currently pending in court. Her former owner is charged with animal cruelty and animal abandonment; both are second degree misdemeanors.

Such a sweet and happy girl

Pocket Pets need love too What exactly is a “pocket pet” you may ask? Pocket pets are small animals, like rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, gerbils, rats, mice and chinchillas, that are kept as pets. Pocket pets make great companions for many reasons. They make great companions for people who live in small homes or apartments and may not be able to have a dog or cat. Similarly to dogs and cats, many rabbits, guinea pigs, rats and other pocket pets enjoy being petted and interacting with their owners. Give them proper time, attention and affection, and they will return the love and affection in their own special ways. Additionally, many pocket pets can be trained to use a litter box, which makes cleaning their habitat much easier. Plus, kids can have a lot of fun creating safe, explorable habitats for their pet. If you’re interested in adopting a pet but not sure you’re ready or just don’t have space for a dog or cat, stop in to TAHS and meet our pocket pets today!

This nationally renowned, ten-week course focused on individual goals, skills and management techniques to help for each supervisor be effective leaders and, in-turn, benefit the mission of TAHS through their leadership.

Thank you to those who made donations to the Toledo Area Humane Society Barking ovations Everyday we are so thankful and appreciative to the individuals and groups who care for animals as much as we do and make the decision to donate their time, efforts and/or money to help in whatever way they can. “Barking Ovations” are our little way of saying thank you! Barking Ovations to the Summit Academy in Akron, Ohio for sponsoring a booth during the Toledo Area Parent’s

Back to School Fair at Westfield Franklin Park Mall. Thanks to your generous donation, the TAHS Education Department was able to have a booth during the fair to talk to visitors about our programs for kids and the mission of TAHS. Barking Ovations to Pamela and Laini of Toledo (left). They held a lemonade stand in their neighborhood because they wanted to raise money to help the animals here at TAHS. The girls raised over $50 , which will help us care for our furry friends. They sent us this great photo of their lemonade stand and said they can’t wait to do it again. From all of the animals here, thank you girls! Barking Ovations to Kamryn, Ciara (below) and all the girls from the American Heritage Girls Troop OH2262 for donating some goodies for the animals! Along with several hand-decorated kitty condos (which all of the kitties enjoyed, as you can see in the photo below), the girls dropped off doggie bandanas, catnip toys, cat blankets, leashes and several timothy hay tubes for the pocket pets. All the gifts were a big hit! Thank you girls! And Barking Ovations to Lynn Martinez, a long-time TAHS volunteer, whose recent donation made it possible for us to purchase additional dog beds so each of our kennels now has a comfy place for the pups to sleep. From all of the dogs who will benefit from this generous donation, thank you Lynn!
