We are proud to announce that we have gotten the contract to take over the Clermont County Animal Shelter! This has been a dream of mine for 18 years! We are very excited to move forward and start saving animals! Animals of Clermont County deserve the best! With our great team, who will be announced at a later date, this is going to be a great change for Clermont County! The animals are top priority, especially seniors and animals that need medical care. We need to come together with the community and rescue groups to make this possible. We have already contacted many rescues that have already told us they are on board with this dream!
We will have a Facebook page after we take over January 1, 2015 and our website will be undergoing changes to help the animals after the first week of January. We have kept a low profile because we did not want to be part of any drama with the other groups. We are here to save the animals, we do not have time for that.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact us and if you would like to volunteer we would love to hear from you!
Everybody wants to know who I am. I have been in rescue for over 25 years. I have been the founder and director of Ohio Basset Rescue for 18 years and counting. I am the person who when Hamilton County called and said they had 10 heart worm positive dogs that had been there for 6 months, I paid for four heartworm treatments so the dogs could be adopted. I am the one if a shelter calls with a senior dog that cannot be placed, I try to find a rescue and pay the vet bill so they can take the dog. I am the one who has helped other rescues when they have major medical bills and heart worm treatments. I am the one a lot of shelters call for help placing dogs. I am the one who helped get food for an Indiana shelter to feed their animals for the winter and food for rural Kentucky shelters. I helped get food for the homeless and underprivlidged in Cincinnati. I took 2 skids of food to a vet in Brown County to help the people struggling to feed their dogs. I am your rescue friend! This is why you do not know me, I am too busy helping the animals! I hope to see you all on board soon! Thank you for your support! - Eva DeVaughn
Clermont to the Rescue is an all-star team of local animal rescuers with 50+ combined years of experience formed to bring about change at the Clermont County Humane Society.
Clermont County Humane is an open intake shelter. As a county run facility, they have to take in every cat and dog that comes their way. Obviously they cannot keep them all alive simultaneously. It would take infinite amounts of space, funding, and staffing for the county to house all of the unwanted pets in this county alone until such time as each could be rehomed.
The blame for this does not lie with Clermont County Humane, it lies firmly with irresponsible pet owners. However, there are local rescues standing by that have been trying for years to work with Clermont County Humane. All attempts have been met with resistance. The county itself has now gotten involved by mandating that the humane society increase their hours of operation and network with rescue. It hasn’t been a smooth process, to say the least. Police have been summoned. Communications haven’t even really been established, so we can’t even say they have broken down.
We intend to submit a bid to run the animal shelter in 2014. Not only will we carry out shelter operations but we will network with our rescue contacts to establish a higher save rate. We have approximately 75 rescues who stand ready to save dogs from euthanasia at Clermont County in addition to an independent network of foster homes. Join us. We seek foster homes, rescue contacts, fundraising and public awareness volunteers. It will not be an easy fight, but the reward of an animal life saved is worth everything.
We are in no way connected with Nathon Winograd or the No Kill Revolution.
