dog pound donations 2-16

News-Herald Staff Writer

CADIZ – Donations are starting to pour in to the Harrison County Dog Pound with the latest coming in memory of a longtime community official.

Kirby McIntosh recently donated dog beds and leashes to the Harrison County Dog Pound in honor of his grandfather Bob Hugh, a Scio businessman and former county commissioner who served as a Harrison Hills City School board member until his death last year. McIntosh, pictured with part-time Dog Warden Jeff Campbell, said he wanted to do something positive for the pound.

“We’ve always had dogs on our farm, plus it’s a county office and [Grandpa] always wanted to help an office in the county that needed it,” he explained.

Jeff Campbell, who has shared part-time dog warden duties with Birney since Jan. 19, said individuals and organizations have been assisting by purchasing items and lending a hand.

“The Humane Society has been great,” he said, citing President Marilyn Cope, humane officer Darla Smith and volunteer Tonya Stull for aiding with adoptions and rescues. “People are really helping out. We were surprised at the number of calls.”

The pound operates weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information, call 740-942-4080.
