Louise needs a home!

Louise is one of our shelter dogs who has been here for several months. She is a real dog, with likes (playing, running, going on walks and getting snuggles) and dislikes (doesn't like to share toys or her food, not fond of cats) but don't we all have likes and dislikes?
She would be successful in a home without children or cats, with a fenced yard and a family active enough to enjoy walking and playing with her. She's wonderful and we are so grateful for everyone working to help find her a forever home!
Please call for an appointment to meet this little sweetie!

Barnabas is one of our senior cats who has been surrendered by his owner. At 8 years old, he's really stressed here at the shelter. He prefers to hide in a box or burrow under blankets but once uncovered purrs and enjoys attention. He's been around children but needs a calm, quiet home where he can relax and feel safe again.
If you'd like to meet this old mannie cat, please call our office for an appointment to meet him!

This sweet little face belongs to Khaleesi, who is very small but actually one of our senior cats!! She is still very playful and gets along with other cats. She's had a dental, and lost a few teeth, but enjoys eating dry kibbles as well as canned food.
We'd love to see this little old lady find a forever family! Please call our office to make an appointment to meet her!

Meet Ned!
This boy has been shuffled around a bit and just landed back at our shelter. Ned is very sweet, loves being brushed and is used to living with dogs, cats and kids. At 17#, he could stand a bit of a diet, but mostly he just needs a new place to call home.
If you would like to meet him, call our office for an appointment!

Call us to make an appointment to meet Miguel!

This week's Columbus Animal Hospital is Miguel!

Miguel is a handsome, shorthaired tiger who is about 2-3 years old. If you are looking for a kitty who can keep a conversation with you, look no further. He loves to talk to the staff and can hold up his end of the conversation! He loves to be with people and will follow you wherever you go, just in case you need help with something. He also loves to give hugs and be held. Miguel is neutered, up to date on his vaccinations and has tested positive for FIV. To schedule an appointment to meet Miguel or any of our other amazing animals, please call the Bartholomew County Humane Society at 812-372-6063.

Meet Cogburn! Cogburn is part of our SEA Program, our placement program for dogs who need some extra attention and time to make sure they are placed in the right home. Cogburn was adopted once and, unfortunately, made his way back to us. But we know the perfect home for him is out there and we're determined to find it!

Cogburn is an extremely intelligent boy who wants to please his people. He will often notice volunteers or staff attending to another dog and he will grab a toy to offer you in hopes that he can catch your eye. He is fond of belly rubs as well as a lot of exercise! He loves water play and other playful dogs. We have found that Cogburn needs a lot of exercise to work off his ample puppy power, including long walks, agility equipment and playing “fetch”.

Do you have time, energy, and love to share with a great dog like Cogburn? If you'd like to make an appointment to meet him, please give us a call at 812-372-6063.

Adopt a new best friend! Meet Louise!
• Breed: Pitbull
• Age: about 4 yrs.
• Bio: She's great walking on a leash, loves snuggles, and just really seems to desire being doted on by humans! Louise needs to be an only dog as she guards her toys and doesn't share well. She spayed, chipped, and up to date on vaccinations, and is benefitting from some cbd treats that are reducing the signs of anxiety.
Louise's adoption fee is sponsored by Pet Supplies Plus. To inquire about adopting Louise, contact Bartholomew County Humane Society.! 💚🐶😍

We have litters of kittens who need a quiet, friendly place to let them grow a little bigger. We also have momma kitties who would love a vacation so they can recuperate from nursing babies. All these fluffies will be placed up for adoption once they are ready to be fixed, but they need a little more time and our shelter is full.

If you have a little time to help babies or adults, please contact our office! Bartholomew Humane can offer litter pans, food, and other supplies to make our cats comfy while they are with you!

Abigale

We just can't figure out why gorgeous Abigale is still at the shelter! Miss Abigale is 7 or 8 years old. We think she may be a Maine Coon mix, because she is definitely not petite.

Sassy is a great adjective to describe her. It's so fun to watch her play. She loves chasing that red dot! She tolerates other cats, but she would thrive most in a home with older children where she is the only pet.

Abigale has been at the shelter for over 700 days now. Can you help us finally find her forever home?

********PUP-DATE********

THIS BABY MADE HER WAY BACK TO HER FOSTER FAM!!!

Her foster Fam literally got home at dark from searching all day to find her in their yard! These kind humans spottedher several times and never gave up or gave in!

Good fortune was upon this pup! Thank you to all who expressed support and sent up good thoughts—you helped us indeed!

Our organization is grateful for such dedicated foster families! The pets who receive this humanity gain so much. Thank you!

Friends, we need your help!

We’ve had a foster puppy take a walk-about on Baker Hollow Rd., near the county line. She got frightened and took off about dawn this morning.

She’s timid and quiet, so we’re not certain she will approach anyone.

This pup is 4.5 months old, spayed on 9/2 so she’ll have a fresh scar. Last seen wearing a pink collar, black harness likely dragging a retractable leash and not yet chipped.

If you see her or know of someone who might have seen her please call Bartholomew Humane at 812-372-6063.

Help us find this babe!

The 2020 Virtual PetPalooza will be going live from August 23 – 29!

We are partnering with our friends at City of Columbus Animal Care Services, along with Animal Outreach of Shelby County and Brown County Humane Society, to get adoptable dogs, cats and kittens out of our shelters and into their forever homes.

You will be able to see all of the adoptable animals virtually. Then, depending on which agency the animal you're interested in is with, you will work with them to fill out an application, set up an appointment, and finish out the adoption. We will be making appointments Monday through Saturday next week (we are closed on Tuesday).

Dogs and cats will have a reduced adoption fee of $50, which includes spaying or neutering, all applicable shots, and microchipping. The website will be going live tomorrow for you to check out all of the available animals. Don't miss out on this opportunity to find the new family member you've been looking for!

Have we mentioned lately that we have lots of kittens? If you're not interested in taking home one (or more) of our adoptable cuties, maybe you would be able to help us keep their bellies happy and full? We are running low on wet kitten food, which is a favorite treat! We have added Fancy Feast kitten food to our Amazon wishlist, so you don't even need to leave your home to help out these little ones. :)

Thank you for your support!

We have been able to get dozens of kittens fixed and ready for adoption in the past week! Here are some of the kittens of BCHS who are ready to head to their forever homes.

Kittens do really well if they have a buddy, so we are offering BOGO pricing for our kitten friends -- adopt one kitten for $110 and get a friend kitten at no charge! Normal application process and counseling conversation applies, but these youngsters are ready to impress your family with their acrobatics, feats of strength, agility and warm snugly purring! Call the shelter today (812-372-6063) for an appointment to pick out some friends!

ADOPTED!! Thanks to Anne's matchmaking abilities, this lovely old lady hit the jackpot! She's going home where her new parents are eager to spend hours of "lap time" together!!
#itswhatwedo

Meet Jinx! She is a 14 year-old declawed Calico kitty. She was very upset and grumpy when she was first surrendered to us. We found out that as a result of being declawed earlier in life, she had bone spurs and deep infection. She had to endure surgery to have these issues repaired, but she’s really relaxed since then! We've included a picture of the bone spurs removed from Jinx's toes. #DontDeclaw

Miss Jinx enjoys cat treats and a little canned food whenever she can get it! She would love nothing more than to spend the day warming your lap.

She’s living in our shelter director's office right now but is ready for a forever home! She’d make a wonderful office cat or a cozy companion for folks who adore seniors.

We’ve had a very generous donor who has adopted seniors from us in the past contribute to help cover the adoption fee of senior cats, including Jinx. Her adoption fee will be sponsored for the right adopter!

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
