Good news, bad news

There's good news and bad news from the Lake County Dog Warden.

Dog Warden Rodney Shelton released the 2010 year-end figures, and the good news is 658 dogs found a home in 2010.

Of those dogs, 354 were adopted and 304 were returned to their owners.

The bad news, Shelton reports that 142 dogs were destroyed. Of those dogs, 22 died at their owner's request, while 120 were destroyed for other reasons.

If you're looking to adopt a dog, the shelter is always a good place to start.

The shelter is at 2600 North Ridge Road in Perry Township.

For details, call 440-350-2640.
