MONROE - The Green County Humane Society opened its doors to nearly 20 dogs from high-kill shelters and rescues from multiple different states last week. Laci Westgard, executive director of public affairs for the Humane Society, said the humane society had the opportunity to take in the dogs after it saw a significant decrease in local stray animals. These vacancies allowed the local shelter to take in dogs from others outside of Green County which were too full to properly care for the animals.
