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. 😆

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: 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.

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!

Indigo's siblings, Galaxy and Nitro, are still available for adoption — they are also beautiful and loving black kittens who were raised in foster care and really well socialized. 

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

Sandy nose, sunkissed toes

Parker recently took his first vacation, and he adapted easily to the beach life. 

Parker was adopted back in March (his name was Buzz at the shelter) and is living his best life. 

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 doppelgängers 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!

In the split photo, you can see Bear on the left (when his human sister was 3) and Rocky on the right (when his human sister was 😎 on their rides home!

We are so happy for Rocky and Bear and their family!

Thank you for adopting from the Clinton County Humane Society!

They grow up so fast!

We love seeing this little girl and her wonderful life. 

“I just wanted to share an update with y’all about our adopted girl, Rooster. She was Pinky Pie when we got her three years ago. Her Gotcha Day will be next month. 

“She is the best pocket pittie mix a family could ever ask for. She is definitely a den dog who loves her home, humans and lil big sis. 

“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.”

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

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!
