Humane Society of Henderson County President Josh Williams credits the decrease to Josh Cromer, who’s been the organization’s director for just over a year. When he started last October, Cromer said his goal was to cut the number of euthanized animals in half. During the first nine months of 2011, the shelter put down 862 animals. For the same time period this year, it’s euthanized just 65.
