Bowling Green and Warren County Humane Society offers $25 emergency dog adoptions


The Bowling Green and Warren County Humane Society has issued a “code red” due to the influx of dogs within the shelter. 

According to the BGWCHS Instagram, there will be $25 emergency dog adoptions from Friday, Feb. 9 through Sunday, Feb. 11. 

“We are shocked by the amount of dog intakes we’ve had lately,” BGWCHS said via Instagram. “We have never seen this many dogs come in during February, and this shows how important it is to spay and neuter pets!”


Currently, there are 213 dogs in the care of BGWCHS, with 8-9 dogs in each kennel, when there is usually 5-6 per kennel at a maximum. 111 dogs are available for adoption this weekend, and need to be adopted ASAP, BGWCHS said. 

“If this situation doesn’t turn around, in just 24 hours we are going to be forced to make tough choices due to space for the first time in years,” BGWCHS said. 

The BGWCHS is open Saturday from 10 a.m to 4 p.m., and Sunday from 12 to 4 p.m. Available dogs can be viewed here, or on the BGWCHS website.
