Humane Society events are ready and set to go


The Humane Society of Columbiana County Animal Resource Complex, 721 E. Pidgeon Road, has scheduled a number of events this month.

Open walking will be available from 8 a.m. to noon Monday through Thursday for $2 per session. Owners can exercise their pets in the climate-controlled complex.

Poochie Playtime will offer three sessions. The first will take place at 2:30 on each Wednesday for small dogs under 30 pounds, and two sessions will begin at 5 p.m. for big dogs. Poochie Playtime is $5 per hour. Senior-dog playtime will be available from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursdays for dogs over 7 years old.

Proof of vaccinations, rabies and spaying or neutering must be provided, with no exceptions.

There also will be a raffle for a $50 training certificate by The Learning Dog and Enrichment Center, training treats and interactive toys. Chances are $1 each or six for $5. The winner will be drawn at the close of the Columbiana Street Fair on Saturday, when HSCC will be in the commercial tent.
