'She's living the good life'

Merry Christmas from Lily!

She was adopted by a family who worked very hard to integrate Lily with their dogs, and Lily has been reaping the rewards ever since. 🥰

Her family told us: “She's living the good life. Two years later and she's as happy as can be.”

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

'Cuddling is his favorite'

When shelter volunteers dream of homes for the unwanted and neglected animals who end up at our humane society, we are dreaming that they are just like this one. 

This boy's home is perfect for him. And now he even gets to nap under Christmas trees, which is what we sometimes think shelter pets dream of.

Rescued by the dog warden, Bentley had matted, patchy fur and was generally looking pretty rough, even though his cuteness came shining through.

Lucky for him, he was adopted into an awesome family of dog people who not only care for him and love him but teach him new tricks and manners. Named Woody by his new family, he started to look better really quickly — that could have something to do with all the comfy beds and couches he sleeps in now. (He hogs the pillow. 🤣)

Woody's family told us: "He loves to go on car rides and take walks, and cuddling is his favorite." He is good with the family's other dogs, and he puts his head on the grandbabies. 

Best of all, he is loved like we wish all pets were loved. 

Thank you for adopting Woody from the Clinton County Humane Society, and please tell him Merry Christmas!

Yappy Howlidays to all!

We want to thank the folks at Alma's Attic in Wilmington for holding a fundraiser for our shelter, bumping the cash donation up to $500 (!!), and being a big part of the reason Dallas was adopted today!

Dallas had gone on a little shopping trip to personally thank Alma's Attic for its "Yappy Howlidays" event, and someone saw his pictures that we posted of him visiting the store (briefly, since we were worried his big tail might take out something breakable 😝). That person who saw Dallas's post then applied for him and adopted him this morning! 


Yappy Howlidays to all! 

An 'upTate' on Tate the puppy

 An update on Tate. 

An “upTate,” if you will. ☺️

“I think Tate is really taking to living in a house 🥰 He is the absolute sweetest boy and doing so well with house training so far! He’s already learned to go to the back door to let me know he has to go!! He’s a quick learner!”

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

A message from Riley Jade the kitten

"This is a message from Riley Jade, but you probably remember me as JiJi who was adopted in June by my human, Whitney. 

"I'm doing really well! I'm a big 6-month-old now, and my doctor says I have good strong, healthy lungs & heart, my tummy is good, and I even have all of my big girl teeth now! I like him OK, even though he gave me shots in my butt! 🥴

"My kitty big sister, Emma, is starting to adjust to me. I say she loves me but just won't admit it! When we're not chasing each other at top speed, we like to watch the birds & squirrels together. Recently, I've been watching the leaves fall outside, and I'm very excited to see this snow stuff the humans keep talking about!

"My humans are great! I love to sneak up and play tag with Mama, plus if I'm good she'll share a bite of her food with me! My human big sister, Whitney, who I'm making type this for me, is my favorite human. I follow her everywhere and make her cradle me in her arms like a human baby. My doctor even commented on our bond. I take most of the credit for that — I'm very lovable!

"Some of my favorite things are my many toys, my kitten treats that are made just for babies like me, and paper grocery bags that  are TONS of fun. And I've just discovered this neat thing called a heater that looks like a fireplace and I like to stretch out in front of it & get toasty warm when it's cold.

"Well, I just wanted to say hi! I'm having my human attach some pictures of me. I'm so cute that a video of me Whitney posted online got 2K views in a day & a half! Well, it's a rainy night so I'm going to get in bed with Whitney and watch TV, which I love!

"Love & Paw Prints,

Riley Jade"

The Clinton County Humane Society is glad you found a great adoptive home, Riley Jade!

Deebo 'loves, loves, loves his couch time'

 Shelter dog nirvana level reached: Coco on the couch! (Well, actually, Deebo on the davenport!)

"We wanted to give you an update on Coco (now Deebo). He is such a sweet boy! Loves our boys and other dogs. He likes to sleep on the bed with us at night and loves, loves, loves his couch time in the evenings. We cannot be happier with our decision to adopt Coco. Thank you for all your help 🙏"

Thank YOU for adopting Deebo!

'She is our sassy little spitfire sweetie'

We are all ears for this update on Molly!

"Good afternoon, Clinton County Humane Society! 

"I just wanted to send a note of thanks to you and an update on Molly, who we adopted from you all 2 years ago ... She is our sassy little spitfire sweetie who loves as hard as she barks at passersby from our porch! 

"I can't imagine our life without her, and I'm fairly certain no being will ever love me the way this little girl does. We love her so much, and I like to think she is so happy to be a part of our family! Our pack love fest was made possible by your amazing organization and I'm grateful to you for the work you did not only in connecting our family to Molly, but for all of the other families you have made whole with all of the pets you have helped out as well. 

"Please enjoy a few pictures of Molly enjoying her best life and know that you have our deepest gratitude!"

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

'He’s obsessed with me'

Tanner was last of his litter of five to be adopted, but good things come to those who wait!

Now named Buck, he is growing big and strong, and he has a fabulous family of  humans and dogs!

His adopter told us: "He’s honestly so good. Fitting into the routine and has great manners for a puppy. He’s obsessed with me and has to follow me every time I get up. He wants to play more than his sisters would like to, so they’re teaching him to be pretty chill with their low tolerance, lol. But they all get along. We love him very much 🥰"

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

'She’s quite the little purr machine!'

You may remember that at 14 years old, Molly was abandoned when her owner moved away. But this sad story has a happy ending — Molly found a home!

Her adopter told us: "Molly is doing great! I heard barely a peep out of her all the way home and she’s settled in so nicely here. She’s quite the little purr machine!"

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

'It seems as though he knows he’s handsome again'

It has been more than six weeks since Rex (formerly known as Sid) was adopted after he had been abandoned. Rex was kind of a mess, but his adopter took a chance on him, and she recently updated us to tell us how happy they are that Rex is part of their family.

"Rex came to you/me as severely malnourished and underweight stray. Well, after a month of good food, lots of treats and coconut oil, he is back to a very healthy weight and a shiny coat with no more dandruff. (I’m guessing he’s gained approximately 10-15 lbs.). It seems as though he knows he’s handsome again, too. I swear he struts his stuff when we’re out and about! He looks fantastic now, and he knows it.

"I am assuming he was abandoned, because he does have so much love to share with any willing human. Cuddling and relaxation is definitely his superpower and preferred activity. He does a slow approach, cuddle sneak when ever he’s trying to get a good lap position. 

"Rex was adopted into a family with a younger dog who has a bit more energy than Rex. Most of the time, Rex is a willing playmate for his younger brother, Lincoln. Rex has developed excellent manners off leash, comes when he’s called, sits, and willingly puts on his outdoor jacket and gets his paws waxed. (Oh, yes, Rex now lives in St. Paul, MN. The dogs here get bundled up to go out in the winter!). We are working on other commands like “lay down” and “stay." Rex wants to please so bad, and sometimes it looks as if he’s thinking back into his old days to conjure up those words and their meanings … 

"The first few days I had Rex, I doubted myself … had I made a mistake? But knowing that everything happens for a reason and seeing how much Rex has flourished and how good it makes me feel to have him always by my side loving on me and keeping me warm melts away any doubt I’ve ever had about bringing Rex into my life. Can’t imagine it without him. Thank you so much."

Thank you for adopting from the Clinton County Humane Society!

The kitten is now named Zuma, and "he is as sweet as can be!" He sleeps with his best buddy each night.

You CAN teach old dogs new tricks

Kala had ended up at our shelter after her people divorced. Because she was a little older, it took awhile to find Kala’s forever home.

But her family just sent us this update that raises our holiday spirit!

“Kala will be celebrating her 2nd Christmas with us. She is absolutely the best dog. And smart too. Even at 8, she is learning new tricks.”

Thank you for adopting Kala from the Clinton County, Humane Society!
