We have adopted more than 8,000 pets since 2003!

We are excited to announce that our shelter recently marked the milestone of adopting 8,000 pets, which happened with the dual adoption of Bonnie & Clyde, two young dogs released together when their owner was moving. 
Bonnie & Clyde's luck changed a little more than a week ago when these two found a wonderful forever home together in Kentucky!

Puppy splendor in the grass

This is gorgeous Gwendolyn (named Grace at the shelter), who was adopted from a beautiful litter of Lab mixes. She will definitely live happily ever after!

Thank you, Ace! And happy birthday!

Ace, who was adopted from our shelter as a puppy, has turned 10 years old, and his generous family brought us 11 packages of paper towels in his honor (Ace thought there should be a bonus package 🥰).
Happy Birthday to Ace! He’s a gorgeous guy who lives a wonderful life!
Thank you to his people for always remembering our shelter!

You might want to sit down for this cuteness.

We want to share some photos of Winston Levi, who was one of a litter of puppies at our shelter. Winston was adopted July 26, and he has already been on a few shopping adventures, with a first stop at TSC for some necessities. 
Winston's human family is totally in love with him, and his older canine and feline siblings are teaching him the ropes. 
We are delighted that he is so well loved!

We get free litter when you nominate us

We are eligible for our first free-litter coupons thanks to supporters who purchased this brand of litter and nominated our shelter!
The Litter for Good program encourages consumers to nominate their favorite animal shelters to receive free litter at www.catspride.com/litterforgood and to purchase a green jug of Cat’s Pride Fresh & Light litter. For every green jug sold, Cat’s Pride will donate a pound of litter to shelters nationwide to help animals in need, with the goal of five million pounds of litter donated this year and twenty million pounds by the year 2020.

Tucker found a place to cool off

We love seeing his sweet face. 
Update from his family: "We are absolutely in love with our new puppy!! We named him ‘Tucker.’ He’s really enjoying this cool spot in the dirt under our weeping cherry!"

DeeDee is living the dream!

DeeDee was adopted from our shelter two years ago, and she appears to be aging backward! Her family updated us recently, saying, “She is the most amazing and most laid back dog. She is such a sweetheart.”
Her family says DeeDee “is living the dream” in Michigan. 
“We are so lucky that the other family didn’t come to get her. She is the best dog!! Thanks again!”

Thank YOU for adopting DeeDee from the Clinton County Humane Society

Looking for a new family

Sunni is so beautiful! Approximately 3 years old, Sunni cannot live with cats and will actually do best with no other dogs either. She is most likely housetrained.

Here's Sunni's link on Petfinder:

You all came through with cat litter!

Two weeks ago, we shared that we had 22 cats/kittens and were in dire need of cat litter. So many of you generous souls helped us out, dropping off litter or having it delivered. Thank you, thank you! An overload of cats will probably be an issue all summer, so we really needed those donations! 
This is a photo of a wonderful Amazon delivery sent by Helen Rollens.

Dewey has been loved like family since Day 1

This photo of Dewey shows how far shelter dogs can go when they are given the chance. Sure, he's a party animal 😄 — but he's also been a valued member of his adoptive family for eight years.
Adopted in September 2011, Dewey is celebrated each year with a birthday party attended by the neighborhood children. 
Dewey turned 8 on May 31, and his party was June 1 this year.
His humans tell us: "Dewey is so loved. I'm constantly hearing my kids say, 'You are so cute,' cuddling with him, and playing with him. He gives us hugs on demand.
"He will only sleep between my husband and I, mostly burrowed under the covers between us. You may remember that he injured his leg not after joining our family. Back then, I had him sleep with me to avoid re-injury, and he's such a creature of habit, he has never left.
"Now that I have an 18-year-old son and 16-year-old and 12-year-old daughters, Dewey enjoys going back to bed with my kids when they sleep in.
"He also likes to go to the dog park in Xenia. I take him on walks daily and my husband does too with the kids pitching in too. My husband sometimes likes to give him long walks, and there's been times I've had to go pick them up because Dewey is pooped and has taken refuge under a shady tree at the side of the road, refusing to move.
"Currently my husband is sitting in his recliner watching TV. Every time that happens, Dewey must join him, lying across his legs. He has been the greatest addition to our family. I call him my 4-legged 4th child."

Bruuuuuuuuuuce!

Sweet Bruce gets to chill out with his new people and know that he is truly home. ❤️
Here’s an update on Bruce, known during his time at the shelter as Buster:
“It has been a month since we adopted him and we just love him. He is the sweetest dog. We call him Bruce.
“Bruce loves going on walks, car rides, sitting on laps, playing ball, and camping. We put in a fence so he is enjoying the back yard. He is a bit spoiled as he loves getting on the couches (as our previous dog did).
“Thank you for allowing us to give him his furever home.”

Rayna joins two other adoptees

From Rayna's family: "We just adopted Rayna this past Wednesday and she is already completely at home! 🤗 She is such a little love, so sweet, beautiful, and energetic! This picture shows her (the tabby) all tuckered out after hopping and bouncing around, playing with toys! She is just as spoiled as her big sister Belle (the canine) and big brother Luc 😉 We loved her name and felt it really suits her, so we decided to keep it! ♥️ Belle stopped (for the most part lol) being scared of Rayna and we are slowly but surely getting Luc to be more accepting of his new baby sister! 🙈Thank you, CCHS, for allowing us to adopt for a third time! We are completely in love with all three of our babies!"
