Puppies from flooded south look for homes in Wisconsin
Thirty-one dogs and puppies have been brought to Wisconsin after being displaced due to significant flooding in Arkansas.
The dogs from the Jonesboro area were sent to the Clark County Humane Society in Neillsville in order to make room for dogs whose owners did not want to leave them behind when they evacuated their homes.
They’ve only been at the shelter for a short time, but Director of Administrative Services for the Clark County Humane Society, Cheri Wegner, said the new additions have already made quite an impression with visitors.
“Our adoption committee has been looking through the applications. There was a hundred that came through just this morning. So it’s been very, very high interest,” Wegner said.
“We’re delighted to be able to help. It’s the best feeling in the world. It’s kind of part of humane sheltering. It’s what we do. It’s what we’ve always done,” she said.
