I got no news yet on her. I hope this means she is ok. But till I know more, wont jump into conclusions. Will let you all know if I hear anything. I heard Ohio is a tough place for shelter animals. We got to change that, and target them. For that they change!!!

Please help Willow.How can anyone look into that sweet face while they put a needle in her vein to kill her and then go home to their pets and family? The ultimate betrayal for the dog being put down and the innocent dog at home who is unaware of their owners disregard for the life of another dog

We have been calling the shelter, till now no luck in getting someone. We will keep calling. I am finding strange that nobody is giving updates on the site. This is annoying. But we will keep on trying.If anyone else gets something before please do let us know.

I hope that things will work out for her. Unfortunately, I am feeling very guilty right now, because I intend to adopt two rabbits from a no-kill shelter, the Nevada SPCA.
I feel so sorry for animals that end up in shelters that euthanize their furry residents. Shelters that euthanize animals should extend the time for shelter visitors or victims. I feel this way, because I had to visit the Nevada SPCA website almost every day for close to six weeks before I finally felt like taking the plunge for providing a forever home for two specific rabbits.
I have nothing against animals. Unfortunately, I am a very slow healer when my pets pass away. I have not had or wanted a pet for the last ten years. Someone like me is very slow to warming up to the idea of adopting a new pet. I really had to look at their pictures almost every day before I realized that I would not mind taking them into my home.
I invested in the electrical cord protectors, the rabbit pellets, and the canister for holding all the pellets last Monday. Tuesday, I bought a one piece wooden hutch and play area on clearance online. It should be arriving in a week by UPS ground. Today, Wednesday, I bought the feeding bowls, some apple sticks, a tube of hairball remedy, the salt lick, some Timothy hay, and some litter. Tomorrow, I believe I will be picking up the litter box and the water bottle containers.
When the cage arrives, I must assemble it. I hope this project goes well. Once their little bedroom—the cage—is ready, then, I plan on picking up two rabbits. I hope to get the two I have been eyeing for the last several weeks. However, if they are adopted out before I am ready to buy and pick them up, then, I will not be upset, because I have also selected two other rabbits for alternates.
My point to this comment is that many people really do not know that they want or need a pet, especially if they are healing from the loss of a pet. I wonder if any of the kill shelters realize that they have frequent online visitors. I honestly do not know if the kill shelters publish on their websites when each facility intends to euthanize specific animals. Since I was visiting a no-kill website, I never felt pressured to make a quick decision in adopting. I feel that, if many of these kill shelters would extend the time for shelter animals, the facilities would actually adopt more out to forever home than they do now!

I got some information. The person I need to talk to is named Kathy and her number is 937-393-8191. She is gone for the day but I can get her tomorrow. The lady I talked to said NO dogs are being put down during the week so Willow is safe until I can talk to Kathy. I will catch her tomorrow. Still trying for this sweet baby.

Update on Willow,
She is fine. She needs to finish her antibiotics and could use another bath but is good to go. Willow has had some people locally asking about her, but they were told she needed to finish her meds, so nothing solid for her yet. She is in good shape Kathy said and she is adoptable and very sweet. You can call either number, just be warned the number listed in the article is her home number and it is ok to call there as she is sometimes there, but her husband has had a stroke and if you get him, he may say she doesn't even live there LOL. She said she was sorry about that. She is the only officer for the whole area. But she will answer the voicemail on the second number as quickly as she can Try the 937-393-8191 first and leave a message, if you have to, you can then try the one listed in the article.
Best of Luck to this Baby!
So if anyone here or where you spread this is interested on Willow give this number above.

She is still there, looking for a home. That is all we could get out. So this needs to be spread still. She is still alive. Some people are showing interest. You can call this number 937-393-8191 if you like more infos. Thank you for all the support for Willow.
