Wow, has it been more than 14 years?

This is Chloe, who was adopted from our shelter 14-and-a-half years ago!
Her owner told us: "She is so sweet, and having her makes my days so much brighter. Thanks for all you do!" 
Thank YOU for adopting from the Clinton County Humane Society and for taking care of Chloe for more than 14 years!

Happy 10-year Gotcha Day to Ziggy!

Not sure if anyone is still there that would remember him but since we just celebrated our 10yr gotcha day last month I thought I'd send a pic. Ziggy (aka Hank) was a bit of a mess when we saw him. We had gone to see a cute puppy and the girl asked if I had seen Hank. She said he'd been there for a few months and not one person ever asked to see him so of course I said yes.
His nose was torn up from trying to get out of the kennel, his hair was ragged from stress and he looked at me and did his begging trick and I was sold. I'm a sucker for sad faces.
Now our Zig is a little whiter in his old dude years but he's spoiled rotten and lives like a king.
Thank you for trying to place the dogs that aren't as flashy, that aren't as cute ... we're all thankful.

This handsome guy is frolicking now in Michigan

Last week the sweet face of Ziggy was adopted by a family who drove to Ohio from Michigan to give him the love and security he had not yet felt. Now named Maslow, he reminds his family of their beloved first malamute, Winslow. 
His new family updated us on Maslow, who came to our shelter shaky and fearful but who is already enjoying frolicking in the Michigan cold, followed by curling up in the warmth of his forever home.
"He loves being near the snow. I purchased a retractable leash (which allows more room for him to walk on his own) and he loves it. Yesterday he started galloping and jumped high in the air like he was having a blast. I take him on extended walks so that he will be able to familiarize himself with our neighborhood and so that he will always know how to get home. Sometimes he will walk ahead of me and stop and look back — waiting for me to catch up with him. That's what Winslow used to do as well. Maslow is, however, very skittish of traffic; so I take him on neighborhood streets with less traffic flow.
“I took one of my other dog's toys (a small pizza that squeaks) and let him play with it. He seemed more interested in toys than Winslow was. So I went to Petsmart to pick up some more Science Diet food and purchased him a couple of toys his own size. He does play with them. At this rate, within the next month, I'm sure he will not be hesitant at all. He has the full run of the house but seems to be leery of going in the kitchen for some reason (which is where his food and water is). For now, we bring his bowls to him when it's time to eat.
"We feel blessed to have found Maslow on your website and for you to have allowed us to come and pick him up. He is already loved, and will be loved as a part of our family for the rest of his life."
Thank you for adopting this beautiful boy from the Clinton County Humane Society!

This little guy could not look more comfy and cozy!

"Thank you so much for this opportunity to love him."

Scout is so lucky it was a cold, boring day!

From Scout's owner:
"One year ago today I was bored of being in the house because it was so cold. So I talked Paul into getting a dog. Scout, the most adorable, handsome, good boy, bubba dog there ever was, became a part of our family. Paul and I love this boy so much (the girls however, are a different story). Happy gotcha day Scout. I’m not sure what we would do without you. P.S. there were too many pictures for one post so be prepared for a story blast! 
"Thank you to the Clinton County Humane Society for all that they do and for bringing Scout to us!"

'I believe your facility is the first one we will visit'

"It took quite some time for me to share. Long story short, after my last dog (Bronson) passed, I was not willing to find a new family member. However, constant input and suggestions from family, led to meeting, and adopting Finn. Finn was originally known as Jorge, when my wife found him on your website. He became a major part of the family. Finn filled a vacancy left by losing Bronson, both for our family and our cat, Poncho. Ironically, Poncho was rescued, because Bronson was getting older, and more set in his ways. After his addition to the family, Bronson acted like a puppy again. Essentially, Bronson was my dog. He was the child, prior to our two daughters. He understood his role in the hierarchy, after the girls were born, and respected it. When his time was up, I was not interested in finding a replacement. Fast forward three (3) months, after his passing, I found myself at your shelter with my wife, daughters, and mother-in-law. Sheryl, my wife, who had been checking your site often, found Jorge, and the rest is history. I say all of that to say this; I appreciate and respect all that your staff does to find homes for your animals. Although, in my mind I’m not ready to open my heart to another new family member (because that’s what they are). I believe your facility is the first one we will visit. Thank you and your staff for all you do."

A Christmas portrait of a stylish canine

Rosco was briefly at our shelter because his family's circumstances had changed and he couldn't get the care he needed. But as you can see in this updated photo, Rosco is well loved and looking so dapper! What a handsome boy, all ready for Santa.
His new family tells us "He is very sweet and cuddly; still lots of puppy energy. Enjoys long walks and running around our back yard. 🙂"
Thank you for adopting Rosco from the Clinton County Humane Society! Happy holidays, Rosco!

A comfy bed, a place to run, and love and affection ...

Recently we shared some photos on social media of Jasmine, who had been waiting a long time to be adopted. The post expressed that "in this season of thanksgiving, we are hoping that soon Jasmine will have a few things to be thankful for: a home with a comfy bed, a place to run, and love and affection from humans who will love her forever."
So many of you liked and shared the post, getting the word out near and far. And guess what — it worked! Jasmine was adopted soon after the post appeared! She spent Thanksgiving sampling some turkey and pie, then hanging out on her comfy bed!
She has a huge fenced yard and a canine brother who loves her. We are so happy for Jasmine and so thankful for her new family. ❤️
And we are thankful to all of you who may not be able to adopt every animal but who are willing to help when we (and the animals) need you!
