It hurts our hearts knowing that Miles still hasn't found his forever home after all this time. He's been at our shelter for over two years now and has never had the chance to live a "normal" dog life. Miles is great with our volunteer dog walkers and the team here at the shelter but needs help learning to meet new people. He was the inspiration for our new adoption program that allows potential adopters to meet special dogs like him over a series of visits. This allows our team to help new people "speak" the language of dogs like Miles and to learn to help them adapt in their new homes.

If you're ready to invest the patience and love to help Miles get to be a real dog with a home and a family of his own, please call and make an appointment. He is looking for a home without children or other pets. He's a smart boy who's ready to learn and we know he's the perfect match for someone out there. We are desperately hoping he will find his forever home soon! His adoption fee will be waived for the right adopter.

Please call or email for an appointment or to get more information about Miles. If you're not looking to add a pet to your family right now, please help by sharing this post.

Our shelter philosophy is to strive to provide The 5 Freedoms to every animal staying with us. One of those is to be Free from Pain, Injury and Disease.

We’re so pleased to have added an RVT to our staff who can assist our veterinary associates in rapid diagnosis and treatment!

Our community can be assured our team is caring for the medical needs of each animal with diligence!

This month is Responsible Pet Owners month!

One way to be responsible is to chip your pet. This allows for any Good Samaritan that might find your pet to have it scanned at a vet clinic or animal shelter and reunited quickly!

Our shelter can chip your pet, with an appointment, for $20!

Give the pet you love so dearly the chance to come back quickly if an accident finds them on walkabout!

PUPDATE: we have been inundated with requests for appointments for this pup, thank you so much for your interest in adopting! We’ve already filled up for this guy but we’re happy to add you to our wait list for future pups! Call or email a description of your perfect pet!

Puppy Gill is the last one in his litter to be chosen—WHY???

He is about 3 mos. old, fixed, up to date on vaccinations, using a puppy pad to work on housetraining and is full of energy.

His foster mom noted that his favorite toys are the squeaky kind and he loves every human he meets!

This chocolately lab mix boy needs his forever family! Call or email our shelter to set up an appointment to meet him!

The Dodo Partners with Jordan's Way

We are so excited that Kris Rotonda of Jordan's Way will be visiting the shelter this Saturday at 5pm and taking over our Facebook to help us raise awareness and fundraise to make sure we can find loving, forever homes for all the animals that come through our doors! Kris is so passionate about clearing shelters all over the nation and is visiting shelters in all 50 states.

Kris was featured on The Dodo when he spent 72 hours in a shelter, learning what it feels like to be a dog without a home. He really gets what it's like from the time he has spent with shelter animals and staff. It's heartbreaking sometimes, but we know we can make a big difference in the lives of animals and the people who love them. We hope you'll consider joining in virtually on Saturday with Kris and helping us save lives!

Visit our Jordan's Way fundraiser here: https://www.facebook.com/donate/1697726713733776/

01/26/2021

Stay tuned for more information about a fun, virtual event featuring Kris Rotunda of Jordan's Way here at our shelter this weekend!

There might be some challenging exercise, dessert and puppies!!

More teasers on the way!

It's "Indoguration Day!" First dog, Major Biden, will be the first ever shelter dog to live at the White House. We hope Major's time as #DOTUS will inspire others to adopt and contribute to organizations who help animals like him find loving homes.

We would also like to welcome our former Vice President Mike Pence and his family back to Columbus!

Hunter has run off!! Please contact me if you see him. He may look a little scary but he is a very sweet dog. We live in North Columbus near Taylorsville.
My daughter's kitten "Casper " can anyone tell me how to help him? I've spent 200 already he still looks miserable. I listen on wkkg. Thanks. [email protected]
Danny (long hair grey) with our Senpu. Senpu has been much happier now with the addition to the 2 cats we adopted.
Adopted 2 cats awhile back from yall. Pretzel and Danny. Pretezel is slowing coming out of her shell. She loves being petted (we still have to let her come to us) and she gives love nips. She loves laying on the couch watching the birds outside. She likes the laser pointer too. Her and the other 2 cats will play and chase each other. Danny is such a love bug. She loves to lay in bed with me. She loves snuggles and attention. She likes to be brushed. Due to her eye she has a hard time playing with the laser pointer, but still enjoys it. Her favorite place is on the back of the couch or my bed. She likes to follow me around. Our cat, Senpu, that we got the other cats to give her company, has really enjoyed having the company and playmates. Her and Danny are often chillin in my bed together. Pictured: Pretzel
Lost cat from Rockwood St. in Midway Addition just west of CERAland Park. Sometime last night (Friday night). Answers to Kitty. Six-year-old tiger cat. Chipped, declawed in front, indoor cat and unprepared for outside. Jim Howe - 812-350-8176 or Debbie Howe - 812-374-7400
