What a handsome face — and happy ending!

Named Zen at our shelter, he's now Bluester. And look at those beautiful blue eyes!
His owners emailed us: "Thought we would share some pictures of Bluester — we call him our gently giant. He gets along with everyone. Claus, our other Samoyed, and him play so hard together. They love to run as fast as they can in the back yard. 
"He’s got a mischievous streak sometimes — likes to occasionally dig holes to see what's there, loves to move things when no one is looking, loves to play with sticks, and stalk the squirrels. 
"He’s such a great boy! Thank you for helping him become a member of our family!"

Thank YOU for adopting from the Clinton County Humane Society!

Love this letter from Fernie the Cat

We got an update from Fernie the Cat!

"Hi guys, Fernie here. I just wanted to let you know I love my new home and my adoptive parents. They even gave me a sister. She can be a little moody, but I think we will get along fine.
"I don’t like that they put me back on dry food, but I do need to lose weight, so I'll get used to it. I have all the toys I want, and even a cool water fountain to drink from.
"Well, I think it's time to get my belly rubbed, so I gotta go.

Fernie, please thank your people for adopting you from the Clinton County Humane Society!

During the stay-at-home orders in Ohio, limited veterinary availability for spays/neuters has greatly increased our costs, but we are still committed to reducing the numbers of homeless pets in our area.
So we are extremely grateful to the PEDIGREE Foundation, which awarded us a $1,500 grant to assist us with our increased costs during the pandemic. 
Thank you, Pedigree! 🐹🐱🐹🐱🐹🐱🐹🐱🐹🐱

Formed in 2008 by the makers of PEDIGREE® food for dogs, PEDIGREE Foundation is an independent 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to helping dogs in need find loving homes by supporting the good work of shelters and dog rescue organizations throughout the country. Through no fault of their own, more than 3.3 million dogs end up in shelters and rescue organizations every year, and nearly half of them never find a place to call home. For more information on how you can support the foundation visit

Tank is a handsome boy who lavishes affection on the humans he meets at the Clinton County Humane Society. Unfortunately, 4-year-old Tank had an enlarged prostate when he arrived at our shelter. Poor guy was urinating blood. 
The veterinarian said because of his health issue Tank had likely been in a terrible amount of pain — when he got to us and in his prior life chained outside.
Now, after his neuter surgery, antibiotics, and pain medication, Tank is feeling great. His urine is clear and he has a good attitude.
The additional cost of $450 comes at a time when donations are more precious than ever, so we are asking for your help to cover the unexpected expense. If you can only donate a few dollars, it can add up really quickly.
Also, we have had a great deal of kittens lately, so if you’re able to drop off a bag of cat litter (any inexpensive brand), please do so on our covered front porch at 1760 Fife Ave. in Wilmington.
Thank you for supporting the homeless animals in our area!

You can donate via PayPal on our website (there's a link on the right of the page), or there's a fundraiser on our Facebook page,
