Commissioners also meet with Karla Kerns of the Guernsey County Sheriff’s Office Dog Shelter and Sheriff Jeff Paden and Birgit Jackson with Pound Partners to discuss the Pound Partners contract. Jackson said Pound Partners started in 2003 and in recent years has only provided financial assistance to the spay and neuter program. His goal this year is to get the board to be more responsive to the needs of the shelter.
Pound Partners is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping homeless and needy dogs in the county. Jackson said the program operates on a donation basis and no fundraising is planned at this time.
Kerns said about 200 dogs were spayed or neutered in 2023 and the dog shelter then reimburses the fund up to $50 per spay/neuter.
