Mina is 40 pounds, and all legs

Beautiful Mina was one of 19 puppies (in two litters) fathered by one un-neutered male Rottweiler and adopted in May.

Her family said, "She is doing great and getting huge! Already 40 pounds, and all legs." 

Her family also did DNA testing on Mina, which determined that she is 45% Rottweiler and 55% A-Lotta-Other-Breeds. πŸ˜†

We are so thrilled for Mina and the other gorgeous puppies (all spayed/neutered and vaccinated) who are growing fast!

Thank you for adopting 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:

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.

Indigo snuggled her way into their hearts

Happy Adoption Day to Indigo, a gorgeous little kitten! Indigo is such a sweetie, and her new people are very excited to show her all the love they can!

Thank you, Bella and Luis, for adopting from the Clinton County Humane Society!

Sandy nose, sunkissed toes

His person told us, "He’s so funny and is growing like a weed! Thanks!"

Thanks for adopting Parker from the Clinton County Humane Society!

Are they twins, born five years apart?

Who needs cloning when you can adopt doppelgΓ€ngers five years apart?!

Rocky (from Sophie’s litter, named Stuart at the shelter) is now officially 29 pounds.

Adopted 5 years apart, Rocky looks so much like his big brother, Bear!  

Even the cats adopted him!

“I’m so glad we found her at your facility. 

“She is the most wholesome, loving diva girl that brings joy to everyone she meets.”

Sweet dreams, baby girl!

When 6-pound baby Jasmine was found in a box on the side of a road, she wasn’t sure what she had done to deserve to be discarded — and neither were we.

Despite her rough beginning, Jasmine kept her cuddly spirit, and she was quickly adopted. Her new family said, “She is settling in beautifully.” 

Thank you for adopting from the Clinton County Humane Society!

Louie is loved by his tiny humans

 Little Louie is loving all his new siblings — human and canine — and his house up north.

Louie was one of a litter of pit-dachshunds whose post went viral, and his people came from Michigan to adopt him. They even sent us an extra donation afterward, which is very much appreciated as we have run into several unexpected veterinary expenses lately. 

We are so happy to see Louie showered with love.❤️ 

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

Naima and Ruby were both adopted from CCHS

Naima and Ruby are two lucky dogs who are loved and adored. Naima was adopted first, after waiting far too long in the shelter for someone to be interested in her. Named Ginger at the shelter, Naima was extremely underweight from the stress of being abandoned, but she loved to give hugs to volunteers — and now she gets to hug her family!

Naima's family was open to a second dog later on, and that's when Ruby found her forever home too! She is tall too, and the girls love to keep watch on the neighborhood when they're outside. Ruby is loud and boisterous, so she is fortunate to have landed in a home where they practice patience. We love hearing from our adopters. It always makes the tougher days a little bit easier. ❤️ 

Thank you for adopting Naima and Ruby from the Clinton County Humane Society!

Bear is 'a bundle of joy' for his new family

Bear was the last in his litter to be adopted, but he is happy he has a new big sister, Nina, to snuggle with in his forever home. 

His owner said: "Wanted to send you some quick updates on Bear (now Milo — kept Bear as his middle name). Has become better at being housetrained, will scratch at the door when he needs out, loves playing with my other rescue (Nina who is 7) and cuddling with her. 

"He does really well around other dogs and around people, I’ve taken him to a baseball and softball game so far. He has definitely been a bundle of joy."

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

We are crying happy tears for Zeke

We are all so happy for this longtime shelter resident, who came to our shelter as a result of a divorce.

His family told us: "Zeke’s first day home has been full of snuggles and snoozing! Thank you guys so much!"

Zeke had been with us since September, and despite his stellar behavior, he had trouble being placed because he's super picky about his animal friends. 

But our fantastic followers saw his post a week ago and shared it 121 times, getting it to the eyes of almost 5,000 people. 

All it took was one awesome family to see the post, and that's what happened! Zeke was adopted Saturday, and as you can tell by these photos, he made himself at home that first day, making up for time lost waiting in the shelter. 

We have the most generous supporters, and just taking a second to share a post can help more than you realize!

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

So happy for Tucker, who had been like Tigger

 It's a little hard for our volunteers to recognize Chip being still — in the shelter, he could jump straight in the air like Tigger, over and over and over ...

But now, after more than 8 months waiting for a forever home, Tucker has been adopted by a previous adopter. ❤️ 

Tucker and his new doggie friend are doing AMAZING! 

The adopter works from home, so Tucker has plenty of people time and a huge fenced-in yard to enjoy. 

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