Ashland County officials are trying to reassure animal lovers that online claims about the county’s plans to euthanize completely healthy dogs are not true. The controversy was sparked when Ashland County Commissioners adopted rules for the county’s new dog shelter, which opened last October. The new regulations included misleading language stating, “Dogs that have been at the shelter for more than one year will be euthanized.” Commissioners say they’ll change the language in the rules at the shelter to reflect the fact that no dog will be euthanized based solely on how long they have been there.
