To the Editor: Dog shelter full of furry friends

I am a member of the new volunteer group at the Wood County Dog Shelter in Bowling Green. Everyday stray dogs are brought in to the shelter from all over the county. Almost all of them are very nice, adoptable dogs. I can't understand why, when owners realize their dogs have gone missing, they don't visit the shelter to see if the dog is there? I realize in some cases the dogs are intentionally abandoned on the rural country roads, and others are surrendered to or left at the shelter, but I would think most of the dogs brought in as strays have a family somewhere missing them. Please, if your dog runs away or is otherwise missing, please call or better yet, visit the shelter to see if he or she is there waiting for you.
Also, if you are interested in adding a new furry canine member to your family, please visit the Wood County Dog Shelter on Gypsy Lane Road in Bowling Green - there are all kinds of nice dogs waiting for their new forever home. And if you can't adopt but love dogs, please consider donating some of your time at the shelter!
