Theo is checking out the neighbors

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

Bristol is his big brother's shadow — and pillow

Bristol's life is sooooo much better now that he is in his new home, sleeping soundly, surrounded by love.

Abandoned in the country as a little pup, he was adopted a few weeks ago from our rescue organization (shelter name: Copper) by the perfect human family for him, and he also has a big brother, Memphis, a redbone coonhound. 

Hunting dogs are extra hard to adopt in our area, so we are thrilled that Bristol is with people who understand the characteristics of his breed and treat him like part of the family. 

His family told us: "Bristol follows Memphis around the house and likes to lay next to him to chew on bones. We are working on the potty training. It’s been going fairly well so far since Bristol is highly motivated by praise and pieces of his puppy food."

Thank you so much for adopting Bristol from the Clinton County Humane Society!

'Nosy Rosie' the Wiggle Worm

Update on Rosemary: 

"We adopted Rosemary a couple of months ago, she’s one of the 19 Rottweiler mix puppies and like her siblings, she’s all legs and growing quickly. The vet did confirm that her eye issue is a juvenile cataract that she was born with, she can only see light on that side but it doesn’t seem to slow her down at all. She is WILD and we call her 'wiggle worm' because she’s always happy and wagging her whole body, or 'nosy Rosie' because she loves to see what everyone else is up to."

Have you watered your dog?

Cash has decided to take "Bloom where you're planted" to heart. πŸ˜†

Cash (formerly named Quince) and his siblings had thrown into a ditch, covered in feces, when they were rescued in April. They cleaned up beautifully, though, and were sweet and laid-back litter, all with fruit-themed names at the shelter (siblings Apple, Apricot, Clementine, and Cherry). Cash spent a day at whole day at Wilmington's Earth Day Experience, meeting all kinds of children and grown-ups, and he was the perfect gentleman. We were so thrilled that he was adopted into a loving home!

Cash's people had his DNA tested and wanted to share with anyone else who has adopted from that litter. 

His family wrote: "We can't thank you enough for allowing us to adopt Cash. He is a sweetheart. He is loving life with his sister, Jolene."

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

Conrad & Millie were adopted 12 years apart

Conrad and Millie's family gave us this update: “Conrad (formerly River of the 19 Rottweiler/shepherd litters) on the left adopted in May. Almost 5 months and still growing! Super chill, smart and sweet. 

“Millie, on the right, we adopted from CCHS in 2010 (back when her nose was brown!) She is a Beagle/Blue Heeler mix that had been returned to shelter twice before we adopted her.

“She was super gentle and sweet but a bit of a challenge in her younger years. We typically have rescued adult dogs but they never really interacted with her. Until Conrad! 

“She finally has someone to play with and she is super happy to have him here. (Although as he has gotten bigger than her, we have to remind him not to constantly knock her over because the old girl has arthritis!)”

Thank you for adopting Conrad and Millie from the Clinton County Humane Society!

If only all dogs were treated like beloved family ...

We will never understand how people can treat dogs this way, day in and day out — through baking hot days and frigid, icy nights — yet we still see it all over our region of Ohio.

Unfortunately, our current laws only require adequate shelter, food, and water, so a dog can be ignored for 99.9% of its life, far from the owner's house (so it's not even kept "for protection").

Dogs get bored and extremely lonely sitting on the same patch of dirt 24 hours a day, year after year. Dogs want to spend time with their "pack," which often for domesticated dogs means "their humans."

Dogs can do amazing things — detect bombs, find survivors in search-and-rescue missions, allow people with disabilities to live fuller lives — so it's impossible to believe that they're just treated like useless objects and not the miraculous beings they are. 

Many states and municipalities have enacted laws to protect dogs from being chained/tethered for their whole lives, though Ohio is not one of those states. 

Here is a list of tethering laws by state for comparison: https://www.animallaw.info/topic/table-state-dog-tether-laws

Here are Ohio cities/municipalities that have successfully passed tethering laws:

Akron, Alliance, Anderson Township, Bexley, Boardman, Brook Park, Brunswick, Buckeye Lake, Canton, Chagrin Falls, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Columbia Township, Dayton, Delaware, Dennison, Eastlake, Elyria, Euclid, Girard, Green Hills, Howland Township, Lancaster, Lorain, Maple Heights, Lyndhurst, Marietta, Mentor, Miami Township, Middletown, New Richmond, Niles, North Canton, North Royalton, Norwood, Poland Township, Poland Village, Richmond Heights, South Euclid, Springfield Township, Struthers, Tallmadge, Toledo, Warren, West Carrolton, Whitehall, Willoughby, and Youngstown.
