FINDLAY, OH (Toledo News Now) - The Hancock County Humane Society needs to raise $50,000 by the end of the year if they want to keep their doors open.
"We are struggling all the time," said Paula Krugh, director at the Hancock Humane Society.
The humane society is running out of space and money with 220 animals currently in their care.
"$50,000 would be a dream if we want to make it until the end of the year and not have to worry if we can pay the employees or pay the electric bill or the gas bill," said Krugh.
They shelter is in debt by $386,000. On top of that 19 employees expect a regular paycheck. The director said they have a hard time because there is no help coming from any other organization.
"Towards the end of the year when there are no more major fundraisers we really struggle," said Krugh.
The shelter just launched "Paws for a Cause." The goal is to raise $600,000 dollars. The money would take care of their debt and pay for renovations.
The Hancock County Humane Society is a no kill shelter so the animals will find homes.
