The Fulton County Humane Society, located just North of Wauseon off State Route 108, has received a notice to leave from the building’s owner. The move out date, which is posted on the front door of the building, is set for November 30th.

Currently, there are numerous animals at the location in need of new homes. The Humane Society is still in the process of trying to procure a new home, but even if one is found shortly, it will more than likely require renovations to house the animals.

The Humane Society is also still looking for support. Adoptions are greatly needed as well as fosters. Funds for procuring a new building are also greatly appreciated as well as volunteers for when the new location opens.

Any help and support from the community is greatly appreciated and needed right now. Currently, you can contact the Humane Society at 419-349-3841 to help.

They can also be contacted at P.O. Box 141 Wauseon, Ohio 43567 and at Fultonohiohumane@gmail.com.

    The three county commissioners each earn an annual salary of $53,994 for what is a part-time position. The county Auditor is paid an annual salary of $ 70,660. County Court Judges( we have two of them), who are also part-time, are paid an annual salary of $82,721, but are set to have it increased to $84,169. The Prosecuting Attorney makes $126,577 annually. The county Treasurer makes $54,919.
    All of these elected officials in some way impact animal welfare, either through establishing policy, enforcement of laws concerning animals, such as dogs, adjudication of legal actions concerning animals, especially dogs, collecting money paid for the regulation of domesticated animals ( dogs and licenses), or enforcement of laws concerning domesticated animals ( fines), to overseeing the valuation of real property on which domesticated animals are kept.
    The median per capita income In Fulton County, according to U.S. Census data, is $29.000.

    Perhaps our governing elites could lead us by example in this instance.

    The two common pleas court judges ( general and probate) each make over $152,000…and they get a RAISE next year. The Engineer makes $ 103,749 a year, per statute. The combined salaries of all county elected officials total up to one million dollars, and these people are mostly figureheads and delegators. They employ others to do most of the day-to-day heavy lifting. It’s truly strange how in this country the more you can delegate authority, generally, the more you earn. In any event, maybe if we paid these delegators and figureheads less we would all have more to donate to worthwhile causes. Remember, the average per capita income in Fulton County is $29,000, according to census data.
