Wood County shelter staff sleep over to care for animals

WOOD COUNTY, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Two selfless women have been caring for 89 animals at the Wood County Humane Society around the clock since temperatures dropped sub-zero.

The women volunteered to sleep at the Humane Society in makeshift beds since Sunday. They say they just want to make sure the 80 cats and nine dogs are cared for.

"There's lots of work to do, like around the clock anyway, so we've been trying to catch up," said Cassie Williams. "Clean, take care of the animals, paperwork, things like that."

They've been sleeping on blankets and eating the same meal over and over.

"I made a casserole and some white chicken chili that we've been eating," said Megan Baker. "We've been here since Sunday, so we're moving on to snack foods."

But it's not all work for them.

"We have movies and the internet and we did paint our nails last night, trying to make it a girly sleepover, so that was fun," Williams said.

They're giving their time to make sure the animals there are not alone.

"I mean, these are homeless animals of Wood County, so if we don't do it, who will?" Baker said.

    For the past few years, officer involved shootings have led to unprecedented protests. Backlash and violence at times have been so severe, some police said it made them hesitate or even avoid some actions on the job. It's called the Ferguson effect - a reference to the Missouri town where an officer shot Michael Brown in 2014.
