We are grateful to those who give of their time

Early on a recent rainy Sunday morning, after seeing what our immediate needs were, a group of four members (including one who’s camera-shy) of the Black Swamp Chapter of the Redrum Motorcycle Club & Society pulled up to our shelter with a truckful of much-needed cat litter, bleach, and Dawn liquid — as well as their rakes, shovels, and weed-eaters.

They cleaned up and shoveled gravel in our outside dog yards, which wasn’t an easy task! They were such a blessing to us, and we are incredibly thankful!

One of the members, Shawn, had adopted a dog named Angel from our shelter a few years ago and has given her an amazing life! 

Also, the little dog Shawn is holding in the photo was adopted to a very nice woman from Michigan. 👏🏼

Sometimes heroes wear red vests

 With two pregnant dogs in our care, we needed new pools that we use as whelping boxes. It’s kind of past kiddie-pool season, so a volunteer first called the local big-box retailer only to have the line to customer service just ring and ring and ring and ring …

Then we thought of our Wilmington Ohio Ace Hardware. An actual human being picked up the phone right away, pleasantly checked to see what quantity/size pools they had in stock, and said she’d hold them for us until we could get there a little while later. 

The clerk at the counter met our volunteer, remembered the phone conversation, and communicated to the folks in the back. By the time our shelter volunteer walked the short distance to the rear of the store, the other two employees were already working on getting the 4 large/2 small pools loaded so they could deliver all the way out the volunteer’s van!

The clerk even shared that she had fostered animals and was going to get a rescue pup very soon!

The whole transaction took just a matter of minutes, with superb customer service! (Probably took less time overall than the time on the phone trying to reach the giant retailer.)

This is just one of many reasons to #shoplocal!

Thank you, Ace Hardware, for helping us help the doggie mamas!

It's like Christmas, but with cat litter!

One of our generous supporters sent us ten 25-pound boxes of cat litter a couple of months ago. It really got us through a low-litter time! 

We have lots of cats and kittens -- with multiple litters in foster care because we can't keep them all at the shelter!

Thank you, Sherry, and to all our supporters who drop off a bag/box of cat litter when they can! We couldn't do this without you! ❤

P.S. We're not picky -- we can use any brand or kind of litter.

Pinky is soaking up love and adventure!

 From Pinky's people:

"We want to thank everyone who provided love and care during our Pinky long stay with the humane society. We have had her for 14 months now. She has made a wonderful additional to our family. She loves to run beside my bicycle or ride in her cart. She loves to travel but preferred to be home at night. She is happiest when she has her pack near her. Again, thanks for watching out for her until we were able to make her a part of our family. We are blessed to have her love and affection."

Happy adopt-iversary, Angie!

Such a sweet, gorgeous girl!
“We can't believe it's already been a year since we adopted Angie. Since (Aug. 23) is the first anniversary of her adoption day, she has been getting spoiled to celebrate.
“So much of her personality has come out over the past year and she is so funny. She makes us laugh every day. “She loved all of the snow that we got last winter. She loved rolling around in all of the snow and playing with snowballs. Despite being 8 now, she still acts like a younger dog. She still loves her long walks twice a day and wants lots of playtime. She thankfully doesn't have any health problems. “Thank you so much for letting us adopt her. She has become a cherished member of our family. We hope to have several more years with her.”
Thank YOU for adopting Angie from the Clinton County Humane Society!

'A lot of love and a little training go a long way'

 This is Freya (formerly Ophelia). Her family let us know that she is loving life! 

When they adopted her, they took the approach that "a lot of love and a little training go a long way." 

Freya loves pillows, stuffed toys, and the sun. ☀️ 

If she's not the picture of "Happy Adopted Dog," we don't know what is!

Thank you for adopting from the Clinton County Humane Society!

"You brought home a kitten?? OK, fine."

The adopted kitten invaded his space, but they are warming up to each other, slowly but surely.
