Sally the dog is all healed up

In a follow-up to a story from The People’s Defender last month, Sally, the five-year-old Beagle mix is all healed and ready for a new home. Sally was a homeless female dog being housed at the Humane Society of Adams County’s animal shelter in West Union. When she arrived on Sept. 1, she was suffering from a condition known as “Cherry Eye”. The condition, though not life-threatening, can cause major eye problems, including blindness, if left untreated.

Due to an out-pouring of public support and donations following the publishing of the original story, the Humane Society was able to afford to have Sally’s eye condition surgically corrected. In addition to the eye surgery, Sally has been vaccinated, dewormed, spayed, and microchipped. She is now completely healed and is waiting patiently at the Animal Shelter for someone to come along and adopt her. Her adoption fee is $95.

For more information on Sally and other animals available for adoption at the Animal Shelter, please visit or call (937) 544-8585, or stop by the Shelter Tuesday through Saturday between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.
