Finding a new relocation program
The Washington County animal shelter used to partner with the PetSmart Charities Rescue Waggin’ relocation program for dogs and puppies, according to Angela Ledgerwood, animal shelter director. At the beginning of 2017, Washington County animal shelter Director Angela Ledgerwood contacted a Rescue Wagon representative who had joined the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Washington County then joined the ASPCA Watershed Rescue Ride, the latest program in the ASPCA animal relocation initiative. The new program relocates dogs and cats. The ASPCA relocated 16,776 animals in 2016.
