Briggs patrons helping out dog pound
The Ironton Tribune

[Italics/bold added by ~B.] Lawrence County's feline program is largely funded by a fee that is charged to people when they bring in a cat, and by donations.

Most, if not all, of the kittens were sick, and the woman said she did not have money to pay the fee.

[Feral Cat Blog! Note: HUH???!!! So far, what I've found in Ohio state law is:
OFFENSES RELATING TO DOMESTIC ANIMALS
§ 959.01. Abandoning animals.
No owner or keeper of a dog, cat, or other domestic animal, shall abandon such animal.
§ 959.02. Injuring animals.
No person shall maliciously, or willfully, and without the consent of the owner, kill or injure a horse, mare, foal, filly, jack, mule, sheep, goat, cow, steer, bull, heifer, ass, ox, swine, dog, cat, or other domestic animal that is the property of another. This section does not apply to a licensed veterinarian acting in an official capacity. ]
