New security measures after dog attack at Hancock Co. Humane Society

FINDLAY, OH (Toledo News Now) -

After a dog attacked a volunteer at the Hancock County Humane Society in February, security has been increased throughout the facility.

The Humane Society has installed several cameras to cover every angle inside and out.

"It definitely gives the volunteers an added sense of security," said Hancock County Dog Warden Dana Berger.

But the cameras were not the only new measure. Each volunteer and employee now carries a panic alarm with them at all times. When the alarm sounds, it means someone needs help – fast.

"It could be any dog, if it's large enough, it could cause a lot of damage quickly," Berger said.

A quick check at the monitors and other employees can respond to where the danger is.

"If something does happen, we'll get there before they're too badly injured."

The new equipment cost about $1,000, but leaders say it's a small price for the well-being of the employees and volunteers.
