Staff members from the Wood County Humane Society recently partnered with volunteers from another animal rescue in Kentucky to transfer a dozen dogs from a high intake, high kill shelter.
On March 20, the WCHS participated in an effort coordinated by The Way Home Rescue Alliance (TWHRA) to save the group of 12 dogs from the Estill County Dog Shelter. Based in rural Ravenna, Ky., the Estill County Dog Shelter is a high intake shelter where animals can be euthanized simply due to overcrowding. The Way Home Rescue Alliance is a non-profit organization based in Lexington, Ky., and dedicated to rescuing animals from high intake, high kill shelters in rural Kentucky that would otherwise be euthanized, according to the organization's website.
The organization regularly partners with regional, northeastern, and Canadian rescue groups in order to save more "death row" animals than what it could accommodate through its own adoption program.

Bomb threat not 'credible'
A county man made a bomb threat against Wood County Job and Family Services Wednesday, but the incident was not viewed as "credible" by the agency.
The call was reportedly placed by a North Baltimore woman Wednesday afternoon and routed to a Marion County JFS office due to the agency's regional call system.
According to Bowling Green Police, the woman's husband was heard to say in the background that he would "blow the (expletive) place up," referring specifically to the Wood County office.
Police were notified of the incident. However, it was discovered that the man making the threat is unable to leave his bed due to an illness. No citations have been issued.
The Wood County JFS office did not evacuate as a result of the incident.
"We didn't view it as credible," said JFS Director David Wigent. "We get these periodically and you kind of evaluate whether they're credible or not. And in this particular case we didn't."
