Two dedicated employees hunkered down and spent this week's storm helping animals.
Cassie Williams and Megan Baker, employees at the Wood County Humane Society, packed their sleeping bags and pillows and spent Sunday afternoon through Wednesday morning at the Van Camp Road department to care for seven dogs and more than 80 cats.
They slept on the floor of the office, said Kathy Dean, vice president of shelter operations.
The two started to run out of the casseroles and chili they brought with them by Tuesday, so they sent Facebook messages to friends asking for replenishments. Their plea was answered by friends who brought pizza and sandwiches. 
The duo let the dogs out, fed the animals, cleaned kitty litter and took care of all medical issues, according to Dean.
She added that D'Ann Gregory, humane agent, also handled cruelty calls Monday and Tuesday, mostly made by neighbors and people driving by and seeing pets outdoors.
Dean said Gregory received three or four calls each day, about horses and dogs left out in the dangerously cold conditions.
"She educated the people" and did not take any animals, Dean said.
