Jax is 'either sweet or absolutely crazy'

 Jax the kitten was adopted at the end of October and is now getting ready to celebrate his first Christmas.🎄He has heard rumors of Santa Paws, so he has been practicing sleeping through the night. 

His new family told us that he’s very good and so sweet.

“He’s either sweet or absolutely crazy and is running around.” #zoomies

Atlas 'was the best big brother!'

We asked to see other Rottweilers from a litter of 10 purebred pups whose first birthday is today, and we received a few updates that we are posting. 

This is Atlas. Happy birthday, Atlas!

Atlas’s family told us: “Atlas is the perfect addition to our family. We unfortunately lost our older Rottweiler shortly after adopting him. I genuinely believe he held on until he could pass his Rottweiler skills down to this pup.

“Atlas lives with four dog siblings and four cats. Nova is also a Clinton County alum!

“He is already over 100 pounds and is the sweetest puppy! Atlas also experienced his first foster puppy and was the best big brother! We are so lucky to have this boy.”

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

The rotties had come to the humane society from a person who bred them on purpose but who was then unable to care for them. 

Through our shelter’s “Project Abigail,” we were able to take the puppies, get them spayed/neutered and have them vaccinated, and find loving homes for all of them — as well as spaying/neutering the puppies’ parents so that we could stop the cycle of unwanted litters. 



'Sir Oz is so sweet with all visitors'

 We asked to see other Rottweilers from a litter of 10 purebred pups whose first birthday is today, and we received a few updates that we are posting. 

This is Ozlo! Happy first birthday, Ozlo!

His family told us: “When I saw the post about this litter, I thought it was too good to be true. After losing our rottie the November prior, we knew we needed another in our life. 

“Ozzy loves to cuddle, fetch, and play hide and seek with his dad. 

“He recently got a big brother (we rescued a Shar Pei-pit mix). He and Hank will play for hours on end. 

“Sir Oz is so sweet with all visitors, especially his 2-year-old niece. 

“He truly is the best thing to come into our lives. We are so lucky to have stumbled on him and appreciate the quick process of bringing him home when adopting from Clinton County Humane Society! Thank you and happy holidays!”

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

Tupelo 'loves to be on adventures'

We asked to see other Rottweilers from a litter of 10 purebred pups whose first birthday is today, and we received a few updates that we will post. 

This is Tupelo Davis, one of the litter. Happy birthday, Tupelo!

His family told us: “He really is a fantastic dog! He is very social with everyone, other dogs, kids, strangers. He loves to be on adventures and truly enjoys every bit of life; swimming, hiking, training ... he is in! 

“He's a third-time training class graduate and will be going for his Canine Good Citizen certificate in January. 

“No major medical issues, eats everything, so gets GI upset periodically. He's going in to have his hips checked, precautionary, in the next few months. 

“I LOVE seeing the others ...OMG!! 

“All of mine were always rescues so I've never gotta a chance to see any of my other dogs’ siblings.”

Thank you for adopting Tupelo Davis from the Clinton County Humane Society!

Scarlett loves belly rubs

 This is beautiful Scarlett, who now calls Fairfield County home. Scarlett’s owner told us: “She is so sweet. She loves belly rubs and playing with her human children.”

Scarlett is celebrating her first birthday today, Dec. 7, one of 10 purebred Rottweiler pups who had come to the Clinton County Humane Society from a person who had bred them but was then unable to care for them.

Moose pics out toys and treats at TSC

The little boy grew up into such a handsome Moosey Man! 🥰

Here’s his update:

“We adopted a puppy named Abe back in May and wanted to provide an update on him. We renamed him Moose, aka Moosey Man. 

“He was scared to come home with us at first but quickly became part of the family and cannot be without one of us by his side, and vice versa. 

“He’s hyper as ever and loves walks and trips to TSC, where he can pick out new toys and treats. 

“He jumps in uncontrollable excitement when one of his humans comes home and has been doing so well with stepping out of his comfort zone. 

“We just love him! Thank you for all you do.”

Thank you for adopting from the Clinton County Humane Society!

Still chasing deer out of the yard

Eleven years ago, a little black nugget of a pup was adopted into his happily-ever-after home. 

This is Gizmo. He's now an elder statesman, but he's still active and has a continued love of plush toys, like his little Lambchop, pictured with him now. 🥰

His family recently updated us:

"Gizmo has been with us for over 11 years now. Aging well and loves his best friend, our daughter who is now 8. Still loves to play and chase deer out of the yard."

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

'He travels everywhere with us'

 A boy and his dog: Both crashed hard after having fun together. 🐾😴

It was Chase’s one-year adopt-iversary, and his family sent us this adorable picture in an update about this sweet pup. 

They told us: “That dog does not care about anything! As long as he's with his people! We love him soooo much!

“He travels everywhere with us to horse shows, goes fishing with the boys, and was even in a talent competition for his vertical jump! But most of all snuggling!”

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

Douglas is loving lake life!

 This is Douglas. He was adopted Oct. 9 and went on his first fishing trip with his new dad just a few weeks later. 

Douglas found his sea legs, all four of them. Then he found a comfy spot (no pun intended) for a restful puppy nap. 

We are so thrilled that Douglas has found a home where he is well loved and taken on adventures!

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




🐶 Luna pupdate 🐶

“Just wanted to share what Luna’s been up to since coming to her new home (last week)! She’s adjusting very well, getting along with her fur siblings, and is super smart — she knows the sit command and lets us know when she needs to go potty outside. We are so happy to have Luna as part of our family!”

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

'Life seems to be good' for cute Calvin

Calvin's new family told us:

“Calvin didn’t take long to settle in for the ride to his new home. He seems to be a bit apprehensive when confronted with new experiences but ate up the nonstop pets during the ride! 

“He met his human sister and brother-in-law upon arriving home. THEY BROUGHT HIM TREATS!!!!!!! (WooHoo!!!) 

“Once the initial outdoor exploration was complete, he came inside to immediately claim his spot. All toys end up on the big beanbag/comforter bed! This is different than the people bed which he also discovered is made for full-length stretched doggie sprawls! 

“He notifies us when he needs to go potty and has started out his day today with breakfast and toys! Life seems to be good!!”

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

We appreciate all the cat litter!

Thank you to all you generous people who have ordered cat litter to be delivered or pick some up at a local store and dropped it off yourselves!! 

It’s like cat-litter Christmas!

We have lots of cats and kittens in our care (with some in foster care, and a lot waiting to get spayed/neutered), so we will be using a lot of litter as we find them all homes. 

You are always welcome to drop some cat litter off on our covered porch at 1760 Fife Ave. in Wilmington! It can be any brand, any kind.

Thank you!
