'He is so sweet and good!'

Petey charmed his way into getting adopted a couple of Sundays ago. That face and his personality make him a lovable goofball!

His family told us: "He is so sweet and good!"
Petey settled in very well and slept the first night in their bed. 😄

Thank you for adopting Petey from the Clinton County Humane Society!

Angie's family gave her the gift of time to adjust

Beautiful Angie was adopted from our shelter in August. Although she is smiling now, Angie had a bit of a rough start, her new family told us — she was incredibly anxious about being in a new environment with new people and spent most of her time the first week just pacing.

Instead of giving up on this sweet shepherd, her family gave her the time and space and love to decompress after the stress that follows dogs when they land in shelters.

Her family says that Angie is doing so much better now.

"She is so sweet and loving. When she wants attention, she comes right up to you and lays her head on you until you pet her.

"We live on a quiet lane that is great for walks, and she loves going to a local park that has a good walking trail. She loves meeting new people and thinks everyone she meets is her new best friend.

"She's becoming friends with another German Shepherd named Bella that we sometimes watch.

"We are so happy that we adopted her. She has become a great addition to our family."


We are so happy that you adopted Angie from the Clinton County Humane Society and gave her the room to settle in! Thank you!

Thank you for helping with Sebastian's treatment!

Sebastian is a gorgeous malamute who was released to the dog pound with a female pitbull, Luna. They both landed at the Clinton County Humane Society.

Unfortunately, Sebastian tested positive for heartworm and requires expensive and time-consuming treatment. Our shelter, which is funded solely by private donations and with volunteer hours, asked for help paying for Sebastian's veterinary care, which will total around $800.

After posting on Facebook about Sebastian, our supporters gave $1,185 just with the online fund-raiser!

Thank you, Lila and Austin!

 Eight-year-old twins Lila and Austin used their own allowance to bring some very useful items to our shelter — as well as a monetary donation. We are grateful for their generous hearts! ❤️❤️

After seeing a commercial for a national organization, Lila and Austin decided they would help local pets with their money. 

They were accompanied by their mom and their neighbor who is a longtime volunteer at the shelter.

'A great way to honor him'

 In memory of Jonathan Grayson, who died at age 9 in an accident in 2010, his family donates generously each year to our shelter, where Jonathan had adopted his canine best buddy, Elvis.

Jonathan would have turned 20 years old in September of this year. 💙

His mom said, "Jonathan felt very strongly about taking care of animals in need. He would want us to do this every year. It's a great way to honor him."

We always appreciate his family's thoughtfulness, and we are grateful that Elvis provided joy and companionship to Jonathan during his young life.

This sweet kitty is a master snuggler!

 An update from adorable Eli's new family:

"I adopted Eli a few weeks ago and he's such an interesting, playful, energetic, curious and loving cat. He loves to sleep on my chest and refuses to sleep at night unless he's holding my finger. He also loves going on walks and runs with me."

Thank you for adopting Eli from the Clinton County Humane Society!

Tilly is fitting in well with her new family

Tilly's family told us: "We decided to keep her original name, it seemed to fit her just right.

"She's getting along with the other pets just fine. She spends a lot of time overseeing her domain from these windows, alerting us to the squirrel activity!"

Butterscotch is a cuddlebug

 Butterscotch was adopted Sept. 6, and we received this update from her family:

"We adopted Butterscotch yesterday, and as a quick update, she's made herself right at home. We have named her Olive. She is an absolute cuddlebug. Introductions with her brother, Stanlee (cat), and sister, Gracie (dog) are also going well. They both love her. She on the other hand, is still trying to figure them out. She growls when they get close and they back up looking so confused. LOL. They listen well though and keep a good distance when she wants it. Though timid at shelter, she will probably rule the roost her ... and we just love her 💓💗 She is spoiled rotten already."

'We've very much fallen in love with her'

 "Just wanted to give you a quick update on Tilly. We're definitely keeping her! She is a really good pup and we've very much fallen in love with her in just this short week. She was already potty-trained and sleeps well throughout the night. No chewing! No shedding!

"She gets along fine with our much larger dog and our same-sized cat. They are not BFFs by any means, but are fine hanging out together and Tilly and Mil (the cat) will occasionally play a bit.
"We're so glad we found her! Thanks again."
A special thank you to
Amy's Pet Grooming in Wilmington, Ohio,
for grooming Tilly and helping make her look irresistible on Petfinder — look at that little bow!
