Handmade dog toys delivered by students

 Thank you to East Clinton Middle School teacher and Project Trust Leadership Club advisor Alicia Gee and her students for making, donating, and delivering handmade dog toys to the shelter! They got to spend time with some animals while they were at the shelter on their last day of school before winter break.

Maylin made our doggies' day

 Nine-year-old Maylin gathered all these helpful items, with assistance from Girl Scout Troop 3166, Tractor Supply Co., and Clinton-Massie Elementary School, and brought them to the shelter this week! 

Maylin also brought treats for the dogs, which she and a few others made by hand. The dogs loved the peanut-butter goodies!

In addition, Maylin saved up $22 of her own money to purchase supplies for the Clinton County Humane Society, and we are very grateful! This is not the first time we have been the beneficiary of Maylin’s kind and generous heart. 

Thank you to everyone who helped Maylin, including her mom and her little brothers, who did a lot of carrying! 😊

'She's living the good life'

Merry Christmas from Lily!

She was adopted by a family who worked very hard to integrate Lily with their dogs, and Lily has been reaping the rewards ever since. 🥰

Her family told us: “She's living the good life. Two years later and she's as happy as can be.”

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

'Cuddling is his favorite'

When shelter volunteers dream of homes for the unwanted and neglected animals who end up at our humane society, we are dreaming that they are just like this one. 

This boy's home is perfect for him. And now he even gets to nap under Christmas trees, which is what we sometimes think shelter pets dream of.

Rescued by the dog warden, Bentley had matted, patchy fur and was generally looking pretty rough, even though his cuteness came shining through.

Lucky for him, he was adopted into an awesome family of dog people who not only care for him and love him but teach him new tricks and manners. Named Woody by his new family, he started to look better really quickly — that could have something to do with all the comfy beds and couches he sleeps in now. (He hogs the pillow. 🤣)

Woody's family told us: "He loves to go on car rides and take walks, and cuddling is his favorite." He is good with the family's other dogs, and he puts his head on the grandbabies. 

Best of all, he is loved like we wish all pets were loved. 

Thank you for adopting Woody from the Clinton County Humane Society, and please tell him Merry Christmas!

Yappy Howlidays to all!

We want to thank the folks at Alma's Attic in Wilmington for holding a fundraiser for our shelter, bumping the cash donation up to $500 (!!), and being a big part of the reason Dallas was adopted today!

Dallas had gone on a little shopping trip to personally thank Alma's Attic for its "Yappy Howlidays" event, and someone saw his pictures that we posted of him visiting the store (briefly, since we were worried his big tail might take out something breakable 😝). That person who saw Dallas's post then applied for him and adopted him this morning! 


Yappy Howlidays to all! 

An 'upTate' on Tate the puppy

 An update on Tate. 

An “upTate,” if you will. ☺️

“I think Tate is really taking to living in a house 🥰 He is the absolute sweetest boy and doing so well with house training so far! He’s already learned to go to the back door to let me know he has to go!! He’s a quick learner!”

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

A message from Riley Jade the kitten

"This is a message from Riley Jade, but you probably remember me as JiJi who was adopted in June by my human, Whitney. 

"I'm doing really well! I'm a big 6-month-old now, and my doctor says I have good strong, healthy lungs & heart, my tummy is good, and I even have all of my big girl teeth now! I like him OK, even though he gave me shots in my butt! 🥴

"My kitty big sister, Emma, is starting to adjust to me. I say she loves me but just won't admit it! When we're not chasing each other at top speed, we like to watch the birds & squirrels together. Recently, I've been watching the leaves fall outside, and I'm very excited to see this snow stuff the humans keep talking about!

"My humans are great! I love to sneak up and play tag with Mama, plus if I'm good she'll share a bite of her food with me! My human big sister, Whitney, who I'm making type this for me, is my favorite human. I follow her everywhere and make her cradle me in her arms like a human baby. My doctor even commented on our bond. I take most of the credit for that — I'm very lovable!

"Some of my favorite things are my many toys, my kitten treats that are made just for babies like me, and paper grocery bags that  are TONS of fun. And I've just discovered this neat thing called a heater that looks like a fireplace and I like to stretch out in front of it & get toasty warm when it's cold.

"Well, I just wanted to say hi! I'm having my human attach some pictures of me. I'm so cute that a video of me Whitney posted online got 2K views in a day & a half! Well, it's a rainy night so I'm going to get in bed with Whitney and watch TV, which I love!

"Love & Paw Prints,

Riley Jade"

The Clinton County Humane Society is glad you found a great adoptive home, Riley Jade!

Deebo 'loves, loves, loves his couch time'

 Shelter dog nirvana level reached: Coco on the couch! (Well, actually, Deebo on the davenport!)

"We wanted to give you an update on Coco (now Deebo). He is such a sweet boy! Loves our boys and other dogs. He likes to sleep on the bed with us at night and loves, loves, loves his couch time in the evenings. We cannot be happier with our decision to adopt Coco. Thank you for all your help 🙏"

Thank YOU for adopting Deebo!

'She is our sassy little spitfire sweetie'

We are all ears for this update on Molly!

"Good afternoon, Clinton County Humane Society! 

"I just wanted to send a note of thanks to you and an update on Molly, who we adopted from you all 2 years ago ... She is our sassy little spitfire sweetie who loves as hard as she barks at passersby from our porch! 

"I can't imagine our life without her, and I'm fairly certain no being will ever love me the way this little girl does. We love her so much, and I like to think she is so happy to be a part of our family! Our pack love fest was made possible by your amazing organization and I'm grateful to you for the work you did not only in connecting our family to Molly, but for all of the other families you have made whole with all of the pets you have helped out as well. 

"Please enjoy a few pictures of Molly enjoying her best life and know that you have our deepest gratitude!"

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

'He’s obsessed with me'

Tanner was last of his litter of five to be adopted, but good things come to those who wait!

Now named Buck, he is growing big and strong, and he has a fabulous family of  humans and dogs!

His adopter told us: "He’s honestly so good. Fitting into the routine and has great manners for a puppy. He’s obsessed with me and has to follow me every time I get up. He wants to play more than his sisters would like to, so they’re teaching him to be pretty chill with their low tolerance, lol. But they all get along. We love him very much 🥰"

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

'She’s quite the little purr machine!'

You may remember that at 14 years old, Molly was abandoned when her owner moved away. But this sad story has a happy ending — Molly found a home!

Her adopter told us: "Molly is doing great! I heard barely a peep out of her all the way home and she’s settled in so nicely here. She’s quite the little purr machine!"

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