LIGHTS BACK ON. WELL, TOMORROW, MARKING ONE WEEK SINCE THE 4TH OF JULY. AND UNFORTUNATELY, SOME OF YOU OUT THERE MIGHT STILL BE LOOKING FOR YOUR FURRY FAMILY MEMBER WHO MIGHT HAVE RUN OFF DURING THE FIREWORKS. YEAH, SO MANY PETS TAKE OFF BECAUSE OF THOSE LOUD NOISES AND THEY END UP AT LOCAL SHELTERS. WE CHECKED IN AT THE HAMILTON COUNTY ANIMAL SHELTER TO SEE HOW YOU CAN FIND YOUR LOST PET. A MUCH LOUDER AND MORE CROWDED SCENE THAN USUAL AT THE HAMILTON COUNTY ANIMAL SHELTER IN COLERAIN DAYS AFTER THE 4TH OF JULY CELEBRATIONS IN THE LAST TEN DAYS ALONE, WE’VE GOTTEN IN 179 DOGS AND THE LAST 24 HOURS WE’VE GOTTEN 22. THE SHELTER’S COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT COORDINATOR, ABBY MOORE, SAYS THIS FACILITY THAT’S ALWAYS OVER CAPACITY IS SET UP TO ONLY HOUSE 100 DOGS, RIGHT NOW THEY HAVE 202. TYPICALLY, THEY’LL EITHER COME IN, WE’LL GET CALLS FOR OUR ANIMAL CONTROL OFFICERS AND THEY’LL GO OUT AND PICK THEM UP. SO SOMETIMES IT’S LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT WILL GET THEM PICKED UP OR DROPPED OFF AT THE POLICE STATION. OUR ANIMAL CONTROL OFFICERS WILL GO OUT AND GET THEM. OTHER TIMES IT’S GOOD SAMARITANS. FIND THEM ON THE STREET AND THEY’LL BRING THEM TO OUR COMMUNITY SUPPORT DEPARTMENT. AND WE’LL INTAKE THEM THAT WAY. JOHN HAMLETT LIVES IN WESTWOOD. HIS THREE YEAR OLD GREAT PYRENEES. MISTY IS ONE THAT GOT OUT AND RAN AWAY. WE WERE ON VACATION AND, UH, SOMEONE WAS WATCHING HER FOR US AND HE SAID SHE SLIPPED OUT THE DOOR CHASING AFTER A DEER. AND, UH, SHE WAS GONE. HE STOPPED INTO THE SHELTER THIS AFTERNOON WITH HIS KIDS TO LOOK FOR MISTY. AFTER PUTTING THE WORD OUT ON SOCIAL MEDIA, WHERE, UNFORTUNATELY, HE’S GOTTEN FAKE TIPS ABOUT HIS FURRY FAMILY MEMBER FROM PEOPLE TRYING TO SCAM HIM. IT’S SUPER IMPORTANT WE’VE HAD HER FOR A COUPLE OF YEARS, AND IF ANYBODY KNOWS WHERE SHE IS, YOU CAN CALL CINCINNATI ANIMAL CARE AND THEY’LL, UH, LEAVE A MESSAGE OR, UH, IF YOU SEE A BIG WHITE FLUFFY DOG AND SHE NEEDS A SHE DOESN’T NEED A HOME. SHE HAS A HOME. HE WAS VERY EMOTIONAL ABOUT HIS DOG THERE. THANKFULLY, 28 DOGS WERE ABLE TO BE REUNITED WITH THEIR FAMILIES AND OWNERS, BUT THEY’RE STILL OVER 300 DOGS SPREAD OUT BETWEEN THE SHELTER’S TWO LOCATIONS. THEY SAY WITH THAT MANY ANIMALS, THEY HAVE RUN OUT OF ROOM, SO CHECK WITH THEM. IF YOUR PET HAS GONE MISSING AND ALSO IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR A PET, THEY HAVE AN ADOPTIO
