Wyandot County Humane Society is an animal rights organization focused on preventing animal cruelty and suffering while fostering an atmosphere of compassion, responsibility, and respect for every living being through public advocacy and education.
They take in unwanted animals and care for them until the animals find a forever home.
Since their inception in 1985, Wyandot County Humane Society has been a safe place for all homeless, unwanted, and injured animals. In fact, they're the first local entity dedicated to the protection of animals in the Upper Sandusky area.
Wyandot County Humane Society has succeeded for the last 35 years thanks to volunteers who have assisted in various fundraising efforts. The society now houses over 250 animals with an open-door policy that welcomes more animals in need every day.
