We appreciate all that Amazon Air-KILN does for us!

 The Amazon Air-KILN associates made these adorable dog and cat toys for our shelter animals — from Amazon T-shirts! It was a surprise for us as we unpacked the many boxes loaded with Amazon-donated supplies from Wilmington's facility — all for the animals of the Clinton County Humane Society! 

We appreciate these supplies so much.

The Amazon Air-KILN associates are so thoughtful and generous to animals of the Clinton County Humane Society.

We are thankfull to them helping us help the homeless animals of our community!

'She wags her tail when I speak to her'

This is Stella, formerly named Kitty. She was pretty scared when she arrived at the shelter, but she found her way into a wonderful new home!

Her new owner told us, "She is doing great. She wags her tail when I speak to her. She is making herself right at home."

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

Who doesn't love a Tater Tot?

 This is Tater Tot, a gorgeous girl who was adopted as a puppy from our shelter a couple years ago. She is definitely living her best life, enjoying her doggie adventures.

Tater Tot's family saw our recent post about needing bleach at the shelter, so they ordered two giant containers of bleach and had it sent to us! We are so grateful. 

The family also said, "Thanks for all you do and for taking care of Tater Tot before she came to us😊." 

Thank YOU for adopting Tater Tot from the Clinton County Humane Society!

'We love his little personality'

This puppy was such a good boy on outings, so we are thrilled he has his very own family and is part of story time! πŸ“š

We received this update from Ace's new family earlier this month:

"I wanted to check in and let you know that Ace (formerly Ari) is doing great with us! He is settling in nicely, crate training has been a breeze, but still working on that potty training, lol. We love his little personality, and we’re so happy to have him join our family! Took him to the vet this morning, he’s eating well and nice and shiny after a good scrub. πŸ˜ƒ"

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

'To say he’s my best friend is an understatement'

From Major's human: "This is Major, my bloodhound-Lab-pittie mix. To say he’s my best friend is an understatement. He loves hiking with me and going to the barn with me to see my horses. I adopted him 7 years ago as a puppy, and he’s seen me through high school, and now I’m going into senior year of college. He and I had so much fun in 4-H and random car rides. He’s the best boy, and I cannot wait for the years to come."

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

All Louie needed was a chance

A wonderful local family had adopted a pup, Bailey, from us in February 2020, then another dog, Ollie, in February 2021. 

Unfortunately, earlier this year, Bailey had died young of aggressive lymphoma, and Ollie was “beside himself without a playmate.”

The human parents had seen an online profile of Louie, who had been waiting five months for an adopter, and wanted to meet him.

Louie was sweet as could be but was a big Lab mix who could be a handful — he just wanted to be with people so badly. And he was strong.

Undeterred, the people said, “Well, we are used to big dogs.” 

At the shelter, true to his nature, Louie, in all his excitement, was unable to calm down at the meet-and-greet, jumping up in the man's face nearly the whole time. Louie was definitely NOT on his best behavior. 

The people took him home anyway.

At first Louie was calmer at home than he had been in the shelter. Then he had some potty-training issues, and he had to learn how to sit and wait for his food bowl. 

Nonetheless, his new family said he was a “completely sweet goofball,” and they forged on, even though Louie is a super chewer who “shreds” the toughest BarkBox toys. 

Louie’s mom told us, “I’ve only had a couple ‘what was I thinking? moments,’ but no more than any other dog I’ve gotten before. lol”

The most recent photo we received is of Louie and his buddy Ollie. 

“In a hilarious turn of events, the dog that has no awareness of personal space (Ollie), who will sit on everything and everyone, now has someone who likes to sit on him.”

We are so grateful to adopters who take the dogs who may not be perfect —and who give them a chance to settle in to life outside a shelter. 

Thank you for adoption Louie (and Bailey and Ollie!) from the Clinton County Humane Society!

Chopsticks and Miso, best friends

This golden boy is Chopsticks (formerly Liam) and his new best friend Miso, who quickly showed Chopsticks where all the varmints hide in the woods. 

He follows her everywhere, and she has taught him the rules of the house. 

His new family told us, "I figured it would be nice for you all to see how your efforts help dogs like Chops find a forever family. We are so grateful!"

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

'We love him lots!'

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

A golden and her girls

Ginny the golden was found abandoned and underweight with overgrown nails, but she was always a ray of sunshine, even in her state of neglect. 

But look at her now! πŸ₯°

It wasn’t very long until Ginny (formerly Grace) found a wonderful home with three girls who are totally in love with her! 

Her family told us that she is the sweetest dog ever. “She gets daily walks, been to parades, soccer fields, parks, and of course so much love with tons of petting!!!”

Ginny has already gained weight in her new, happy life, even with the daily exercise. 

We are so happy for this canine girl — and her human girls!

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

'Spoiled rotten and loving it'

This is Sparkle and Sprinkle. One was adopted, so then the other was by herself for awhile at our facility. The family saw her still posted on Petfinder and came back for a second adoption, so now the sisters are together again!

Their family told us they are "spoiled rotten and loving itπŸ’•."

Thank you for adopting Sparkle and Sprinkle from the Clinton County Humane Society!

'She is absolutely the perfect little girl'

This is Ellie, formerly known as Thumbelina. 

Ellie has already been to Rocky Fork Lake in Ohio, as well as to North Carolina and West Virginia — she is an excellent camper!

Her family said, “She is absolutely the perfect little girl. She seems only to bark when she needs to go out, she is either sleeping in bed next to me or she is sitting next to me in my chair. She is a true little snuggle bug. … I will guarantee you will never get her back from us, we are truly in love πŸ’•.”

Thank you for adopting from the Clinton County Humane Society!

Thank you to everyone who donated for her treatment

You may not recognize Samantha, formerly Belle — she had been found with a severe case of mange, but back in May several of you helped us raise $290 toward her treatment.

Look at her now! Isn’t she beautiful?!

She found a wonderful home, now weighs 28 pounds, and looks gorgeous!

Thank you to her new family for adopting her and taking such great care of her, and thank you to the followers of the Clinton County Humane Society who are always so generous!

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

Thanks again!πŸ€—"
