Another Zoom meeting, then on to zoomies

There are more benefits to choosing a shelter pet than most people realize. Hank, adopted by his forever family in February, does his share by working from home.


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

We agree that he is purr-fection!

We love seeing this adorable kitten in his new home!

Nolan's family told us: "We are tickled pink with our new baby Nolan. He is absolutely PERFECT, and pretty sure he feels the same way."

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

We wished Tucker a Happy Gotcha Day

Tucker was adopted one year ago May 28, and he is obviously loving his new life. 😊 In honor of all the happiness he has brought his family, they sent a very generous donation to our shelter, “because sometimes finding the right home takes time.” πŸ₯°

His family also updated us on Tucker’s year: “Tucker had been dumped in the country. Your post was spot on with his description. He is a pleaser! He wants to do good and be a part of everything we do. He is also athletic — he is super fast, loves to play fetch, and greets people by jumping 6 feet in the air to meet them face to face.

“He was listed as a shepherd/beagle mix. Curiosity got the best of us ... his DNA results show he is a mix of many different breeds, the top 3 being Australian cattle dog, American English coonhound, and Chihuahua, which results in a long-legged, slender build at about 35 pounds.

“He's quiet, playful, demanding, and super smart. He fit right into our ‘opening’ and has exceeded expectations. 

“We are so thankful for your care of him while we looked for a new family member. Please keep helping all of the furry friends find their new homes.”

Thank YOU for the donation and for adopting Tucker from the Clinton County Humane Society!

Vet care, love, and kindness helped Belle

 Belle is feeling sooooooo much better now. 

Don't judge her by her rough haircut; she'll grow into her fur again. She is likely a "schnoodle" (a poodle and schnauzer), and she was adopted on May 28 — yay!

Belle was found in a ditch by a volunteer's grandson who was farming at the time. Poor Belle's skin was a mess — she had a severe case of mange.

We took her to the vet's office, and she was diagnosed with mange, as well as being underweight.

With veterinary treatment as well as kindness and care from our volunteers, Belle has been acting more like her 1-year-old puppy self. 

We're hoping to raise money for Belle's veterinary care, which will end up being more than $800. If you have a few dollars to give, we would appreciate it. We raised $290 on Facebook.

You can click on the PayPal link on our website (you can use a credit card there -- no need for a PayPal account), or you can mail a check to CCHS, PO Box 1024, Wilmington OH 45177.

Pepper looks extra adorable in her donated harness!

This is Pepper (formerly Bambi), who was adopted recently and who "is doing great in her new home!"

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

Bleach is the word ...

Thank you to the wonderful person who left this bleach on our front porch — we are almost out of bleach and would love any amount/brand you might be able to donate.

Huxley and the students who made the toys

Today students from Mr. Sodini’s class at East Clinton Middle School brought us dog toys they had made themselves from old T-shirts. They also spent time with adorable (and adoptable) Huxley the puppy, who behaved well with the students. 

We are very thankful to the students and staff who thought to make something nice for our shelter dogs!

Kora loves digging in the dirt and chasing balls

A year ago today was the day Kora's family came to adopt her, so Happy Gotcha Day to Kora!

Thank you to the Veterinarians of Tomorrow Club

On April 30 the Veterinarians of Tomorrow Club at Wilmington College hosted a benefit dog walk that included some of our adult dogs and fully vaccinated puppies, who all had a great time getting exercise and socializing!

And the bonus is that the Veterinarians of Tomorrow Club will be sending us a check for $655 from the funds they raised!

We are so appreciative! Thank you to future vets! 🩺🐾 And thank you to everyone who organized and supported the event! We even got to see some of our dog alumni too.

That's a stretchy kitty!

Tabby (now Charli πŸ’— girl) is loving it at her new home. 

We are so glad to hear that Charli is playful and has come out of her shell — she was pretty shy in the shelter! 

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

Finally — snoozing on a comfy couch!

We love this update on Ginger:

"We are so happy to report that Ginger has decided to stay with us.

"She was a good girl at our dinner time, lying down and minding her own business as if she'd been raised up like that. 

"She is housebroken. She slept loose in our bedroom with no incident. 

"She saw the guys off to work this morning. And, now, we will nap until it's time to go for a walk and get some schooling!"

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

Any brand, any amount. Thank you!

If you're at the grocery store, or the dollar store, or the big-box store, please pick up an extra bottle of bleach for our shelter. Any brand, any amount. Thank you!

'She's the best dog I ever had'

This adoption update is from someone who works with an area sheriff's department who said that Kye, the adopted dog, keeps the working dog company "and out of trouble." πŸ™‚

"I adopted one of my German shepherds from your shelter in 2015. Her shelter name was Greta. (Now named Kye). Unfortunately, I don’t have her shelter picture anymore. But she is 14 now! I have attached a couple of pictures for you to show how well she’s doing for such a geriatric old lady. She’s the best dog I’ve ever had.  She has helped me raise and train a lot of puppies. She is worth her weight in gold. Thank you for all the hard work your organization continues to do!"

Thank YOU for adopting Kye!

'Boots is absolutely hilarious'

Boots is doing really well in her new home, and that bottom right photo is the picture of doggie bliss!

Her adopters told us: "She and my dog Harold hit it off immediately. It feels like they have lived together forever. Boots is absolutely hilarious. She's curious, smart and very independent. She keeps bringing me the cat's toys as little presents, lol. Most amusingly, she imitates every behavior Harold does and seems to taking a lot of cues from him. It's so cute.

"Thank you for keeping her safe until we found her! She's wonderful."

Thank YOU for adopting Boots from the Clinton County Humane Society!
