Annie is 'leading the life of luxury' with a volunteer

We don’t feature our volunteers’ adopted animals often enough, so we are happy to share these photos of Annie (formerly Taffy), who was adopted a week ago by one of our fantastic volunteers, Pam.

Pam had watched Annie grow up as a kitten at the shelter. Annie is one of a litter of tabby cats who spent the first several months of their lives waiting to be adopted.
They have all been adopted now, and their owners have each said how loving they are.
Pam told us, “She is the sweetest cat. ... Her favorite toy, besides typical cat mice, etc., is a plastic straw. Go figure!
“As you can see from the pictures, she is leading the life of luxury.”
Thank you, Pam, for all you do for the Clinton County Humane Society, including giving one of our adorable kitties a forever home!

Sophie's makeover shows her beauty inside and out

Earlier this year, our shelter received a small, abandoned dog who was in rough shape. 

Thanks to the skill and kindness of one of our volunteers, Vicki, the little dog named Sophie received a makeover. Sophie was adopted shortly after and made herself at home on her new family's farm. 
The family sent us an updated photo, noting that it was like a Better Homes and Gardens-type photo of a warm home with a dog on the hearth. We certainly agree that Sophie is now right where she belongs and getting the love and attention she has always deserved.

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

And thank you to our volunteer Vicki who did so much to help show Sophie's outward beauty.

Kali and her new best friend love to play in the snow

 A couple weeks before Christmas, Kali (named Zola at the shelter) went to her forever home, where she has a canine sister named Kira around her same age. 

Kali snuggled with her human sister the whole 3.5-hour car ride back. 😍

Kali and Kira love running around in the snow AND then they love snuggling afterward with blankets on the couch.

Kali lives in northern Ohio now, and she was lucky to find a forever family who appreciates everything about her. They celebrate holidays with gifts for the dogs and, most important, they allowed Kira and Kali a few days to get to know each other better when they weren't instant friends. 

They may not have been friends at first sight, but they are best friends now.

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

It’s exhausting being an adorable snow-puppy!

Tommy the pup is so dapper in his sweater that we’re wondering if his middle name is Hilfiger.

Tommy (named Honey Bear at the shelter) was adopted last month from a litter of three.
His new family told us, “He is such a great puppy and is settling in well. Our 9-year-old black Lab is also adjusting well to having a puppy around.
“Thanks so much — we love the addition to our family!”
Thank YOU for adopting Tommy from the Clinton County Humane Society!

You know who needed to see a kitten in a sweater? We did!

We love this adorable update on Cain, who is cute as "cain" be. 

His owner told us: "Thank you again for allowing me to adopt the black male kitten named Wes on November 15. Since I have gotten him home, his forever name is Cain and he loves his new family.

"He spends his days playing and sleeping and is as sweet as can be!"

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

Phantom is a handsome boy, and he has had such a great life!

Phantom was adopted in March 2012 and lived at his owner's parents' house until she graduated from college in 2016. 

Phantom (named Apollo at the shelter) went along with her to graduate school at Ohio State, where he still lives. 

His owner told us: "I took a picture of him looking like a Christmas card the other day and I just had to share. He's still doing wonderful, is still the 'goodest' boy, and his favorite things are his beddie, going buh-bye in the car, and his walks. 

"He turns the big 10 in April! Still very mobile for a big fella and dances and gallops about when it's time to go out in the morning. He's a very happy boy 😊"

Thank you for adopting Phantom from the Clinton County Humane Society and for taking such great care of him!

Thank you to this generous girl for her donation!

 Sweet Gwenna, age 11, saved up her money in a special container, and this afternoon she came to the shelter to bring us the $124.65! 

This is the second time Gwenna has brought the humane society a donation from money she has saved! ❤️❤️ It really warms our hearts on a cold winter day.

Thank you so much, Gwenna! We really appreciate your support of all the animals at the Clinton County Humane Society!

Diesel was obviously a very good boy last year!

(Diesel has also been a good boy every year before, and already this year too!)

His owners sent us this gorgeous photo of this handsome canine’s Christmas haul and let us know how well-loved he is. 

They wrote: “We adopted him from you several years ago. He is a great addition to our family and enjoys helping us on our horse farm just outside Clarksville (Ohio).”

Oreo needs his own movie to star in!

 This sweet pup’s family sent adorable photos and a heartwarming update, with this last line: “Shelter dogs are the best and really appreciate everything in life.”

We couldn’t agree more. 💯

“Oreo is the most amazing dog, and we really appreciate you guys saving him for us. 

“He gets along with all of our dogs and absolutely loves the cats. 

“We are so lucky to have found him, as he brings such happiness to this home. Not a night goes by that he does not sleep next to me, snoring in my ear, and I cherish every moment. 

“He is truly perfect; the sweetest and happiest dog we’ve ever had. I am sending you pictures of the past few months, and I am sure you will see how much he is loving his life now. “

We definitely can see how well loved he is! Thank you for adopting Oreo from the Clinton County Humane Society!

She is 'trying to be a lap dog'

 Update on Bea:

"The horses are very curious about her. Today and yesterday they met her for the first time. I couldn't be more proud of the horses being extremely gentle and loving to her.

"She absolutely loves to ride with us in the truck and going on adventures with us. She is pretty, loving, and trying to be a lap dog."

Light, happiness, and joy

 Fancy and Fiona were both adopted from our shelter in 2009, and they have been loved and adored ever since!

They live in Connecticut now, and their family sent us these photos of the girls admiring the family's extraordinary light display. 

Their family said: "This was a challenging year for all of us. I decided I should 'GO BIG OR GO HOME' with my Christmas decorations. I wanted to bring light, happiness and joy to my family, friends, neighbors and the community."

Fancy & Fiona have brought light, happiness, and joy to so many people! ❤️

Bowie is such a good boy!

Bowie enjoyed his first Christmas in his new home, after being adopted in early September. 

He loves looking out the window for people playing in the snow and always wishes he could be out there with them.

Bowie (called Sterling at the shelter) was an underweight stray when he arrived. He is well loved and well fed now!

Such a handsome boy!

Bowie, we know some of your dreams have already come true. ☃️
