Hello everyone, we’d like you to meet 3 year old Petunia! She was recently being fostered however, they are relocating.

She has the most fun-loving personality who thinks of herself as a lap dog. Petunia enjoys playing tug a war or even playing by herself. Her favorite treat is a bone or Kong filled with peanut butter!

When it comes to company, she enjoys all of it especially when they include belly rubs and cuddles. Not only this, but she is good with kids and enjoys the company of very calm, unassertive dogs.

She is looking for her furever home or even a chance to be fostered again!

Update from Nine Lives Cat Café:
"We did see him underneath a storage shed across the street from NLCC, but he is very fast and bolted away. We then tracked him to a house in the neighborhood, but we could not pinpoint his location.
We are still in search of him! Please share this post to your Fountain Square neighbors and help us find Sam!"

This evening of our cats was heading to his forever home from the Nine Lives Cat Café, when he escaped from his carrier as his adopters were taking him to the car.

His name is Sam Adams. He is microchiped and neutered. He has bright green eyes and is very friendly.

Bertie is a shy, timid Newfie who has been recently shaved. She went to her foster home just this afternoon and slipped away after dark. She is chipped and was wearing a collar but won’t answer to her new name most likely.
Animal Control has been alerted as well.

Many of you are familiar with this handsome man! We are so pleased to announce that Chadwick found his perfect people and went to his forever home! His parents even had a bag of his favorite toy, springs, waiting for him at home. He was our first adoption of 2022 and we can’t wait to send more pets home with their people this year!

So happy to share this super sweet update post of our former shelter cat, Willow!
Willow had been a shelter favorite for years, and could often be found asleep on top of the copier or watching her bird videos in front of the staff computers. Well in 2021 Willow found her forever family and now has a computer all to herself for her videos! Here she is enjoying them and telling her parents she would like them to turn the videos on!
Happy life Willow!

They’re wearing matching collars so we believe they live together. If you know where they belong, please let us know!

Our shelter was contacted by the Best Friends Animal Society to assist in a cross county life-saving transport that ran into a big speed bump along the way! We housed 13 dogs over night that were temporarily stranded in Columbus. As you can see the team jumped into action to make these weary travelers more comfortable overnight. Along with an assist from our friends at the Humane Society for Brown County, these dogs spent the weekend in central Indiana before resuming their journey to New York! Thanks to all the groups, big and small, who helped keep these dogs safe and warm on their way to a new chance for love!

This epitomizes the commitment that our team makes for animals in need! Long days and not so glamorous duties don’t frazzle this team! Thank you to our paid and volunteer staff and to all the supporters in the community!

Thanks to the generosity of a community member, our beloved Big Mamma’s adoption fee has been sponsored to help her find her forever home!
Big Mamma is a sweet senior that is a great walking companion, not bothered by other dogs when out on a stroll or just sitting on a park bench enjoying the great outdoors. She is very treat motivated and her favorite pastime is how many treats she can catch in the air or bounce off her nose. She is actually quite good and entertaining with it! Her overall health is good. She had a dental and was spayed on earlier this year.
Call or email the shelter to meet Big Mamma!

These boys have come in to the shelter yesterday. Neither has ID or a registered chip so please help us find their families!

Black Lab was found at the Ogleville Church early on Sunday.

Cocker Spaniel is very elderly and has an unregistered chip which means no contact information has ever been connected to it. We have no way to reunite this very old mannie to his family!

Meet Gus! He arrived this morning for surgery very fearful. Gus was picked up as a stray and it looks as though he has spent some time on a chain in addition to being very thin. 😞 After surgery, we offered Gus a stuffed monkey which seemed to really comfort him. So, we got a couple more new toys to go back to the shelter with Gus! He's doing well after a big day. We all love him! [Gus will be up for adoption at Bartholomew County Humane Society...] 🐶🐵🌽💜😊
Caught this cat over off 100 N around otter creek golf course. Kind of friendly seems like it could be someone’s cat. Please let me know if it is someone’s cat. It will be taken to human society at 12 when they open, if no one responds.
There is a female boxer on 46 W. between country club Road and Georgetown Road. She looks as if she’s just had pups she’s very thin. People have tried to catch her but they can’t please keep an eye out or if you know someone on the west side that is missing a female brown boxer
