COUNTY POUND REFORM

An OHIO SPCA Priority

In 2002, the OHIO SPCA, then known as the Ohio Humane Education association (OHEA), began investigating reports regarding inhumane treatment of animals at county dog pounds. Our volunteer county coordinators gathered documentation and evidence. In an effort to work with the dog wardens and county commissioners, the OHIO SPCA offered help and submitted proposals for change. When we were ignored, we went to the media and in some cases, help from pro bono attorneys was required and legal action was taken. As a result, guns were silenced, the use of engine exhaust ended, and gas boxes and gas chambers dismantled. Some of these counties have made progress, while others still need pressure from a caring public.
