Warm, safe, and tuckered out = happiness

 Lucy and Scruffy were both adopted through our shelter and are living their best lives with a shelter volunteer, who said, "Our lives are so much better with them as well!" 

Thank you to our volunteers who not only give their time to all the animals at our shelter but often take care of adopted pets at home! ❤️ #adoptdontshop

Another Project Abigail success story!

Darby was part of a litter of pit puppies who were released to us through our Project Abigail -- we spayed/neutered the pups' parents and found amazing homes for all the puppies, including Darby. 

Now, in her new life, Darby and her owner go to work at a veterinary office. LOOK AT HER COAT! 😍 Darby gets to socialize with vaxed staff pets! Her new owner says, "She loves everyone and anything she has met!! 

Darby is also getting professional training at American Success Dog Training so she can be her best self! 

Thank you for adopting Darby (formerly Fay) from the Clinton County Humane Society!

Sunny is coming out of her shell

Sunny had spent such a long time waiting for a home, we are thrilled for her.

Her owners said she is letting them play with her and playing with their other cat. "She's still very talkative, and she loves looking out the window at birds and watching TV, surprisingly! She's still a bit skittiish, but I'm sure that won't last for much longer."
Thank you for adopting from the Clinton County Humane Society!

We currently are in desperate need of newspaper!

Thank you!

Henry and his new cuddle buddy

Back in mid-October, many people shared a Facebook post about adorable Henry the puppy. Well, just days later, Henry was adopted! 

And then we received this touching photo, which really brings the happy tears!

Henry's owner told us: "Henry is a super pet! Sending you a picture of him with my blind cat, Bobby. They love each other!" 🦮🐈‍❤❤️

Thank you to Henry's people for adopting him from the Clinton County Humane Society!

A pupdate on Oreo

 "Here is Oreo, formally known as Cryus. He's been such a great addition to the family and fitting in very well. He's such a good boy and has the perfect amount of puppy energy but also knows how to take a great nap! We love him and are excited to see the kind of dog he grows into!"

Thank you for adopting from the Clinton County Humane Society!

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. 👏🏼

THANK YOU!

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.
