Featured Pet Of The Week

AT THE SHELTER. This 2-3 year old Walker Hound female was brought in on an animal cruelty case and has been sitting at the shelter for close to 7 weeks waiting for a release. She is now ready to be adopted. When she came to us, she was skin and bones with a deep gash in her neck from an embedded collar around her throat. The State Vet gave her a 1 1/2 rating out of 10! It's amazing what food will do for the health of a dog! Now, her throat is healed and she looks wonderful! It is time for her to get a permanent home. She is a walker hound through and through and would like a home with lots of space for her to exercise. She came in with another dog so don't believe there are any dog issues. Wouldn't trust her with a cat though! If you are interested in learning about her, please contact the Scott County Animal Shelter at 812-752-4380 AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

Family just didn't want him anymore. Had a hard time keeping him at home. He doesn't seem real comfortable with new environments and jumps in your lap for reassurance. Loves to give kisses. May be housebroken. Not good with kids and likes women more than men but if a man is sitting down when they meet he is fine. He will go right in to sit and snuggle. A man standing makes him very insecure. Not sure what happened earlier in his life but it must not have been good and involved a man standing up. Contact 812-896-6968
