The Humane Society of Adams County said last week that a new Humane Agent was on the job. The position had been vacant for over a year while the organization searched to find a suitable fit for the position. Last week, Meghann Fast began her tenure as the Humane Agent for Adams County.
Fast grew up in Circleville and Amanda, Ohio in a family of six and has always had a passion for animals. “Growing up, my family tried to push me towards cooking or something with animals,” said Fast. “I graduated from school in culinary arts and worked in the restaurant business for more than a decade – now I feel it’s time to start a career working with animals.”
Fast had been working for the Humane Society of Adams County since August 2021 as a kennel assistant. “After living here for seven years, I have seen an increasing need for a Humane Agent,” said Fast. “So when the board asked if I would be willing to become an agent, I said yes. I’m hoping that I can help the local community and be the support these animals need and deserve.”
In Ohio, a humane agent enforces animal cruelty, animal neglect, and other animal protection laws. Fast will take calls from concerned citizens about animals in distress and investigate neglect and cruelty cases. The funds for the position are provided by the Board of Adams County Commissioners.
