Vote for our shelters

Why not support our local animal shelters the lazy way — by clicking on a Web site?

If you visit the Animal Rescue Site, you can provide food for rescued animals simply by clicking on a big icon — sponsors pick up the tab.

But there’s more. Look for an icon that lets you vote for your favorite animal shelter. I ran a search for “Sandusky, Ohio” and found four organizations to vote for: Erie County Dog Shelter, HerpHaven Reptile Rescue, Humane Society of Erie County and North Coast OH Corgi Rescue. Please vote for one of them. The winning shelter gets a grant.

I was tipped off about the site by Ellen Hanck, a county employee and dog owner who won a contest to name the new dog park, Erie MetroBark Park. Hanck found the site while surfing the Internet at home. Ellen is a partisan for the dog warden's shelter, so I voted with her, although I told the humane society about the site, too.
