Featured Pet Of The Week

Anton, neutered male with a beautiful swirl pattern on his coat. Allows you to pick him up and pet him and comes to you for affection. A really nice boy! Gets along fine with other cats and is available for adoption through our cat adoption facility.

Humane Society volunteers visited the 2nd grade classes at Vienna-Finley Elementary School Tuesday. They talked to the classes about the humane society and pet ownership responsibility. Otis, the puppy, and Anton, a beautiful shorthair cat, were big hits and the kids enjoyed the chance to have some close-up time with the pets. These young people are collecting all kinds of needed items for the animal shelter and the cat shelter.

" Rebecca "
4 years   F

We have a gorgeous tortie just waiting for you to adopt her. Contact Sue at 812 820 1680 or sueann60@hotmail.com

"Shiloh" beagle/chihuahua
5 months   female

turned in by owner - just a little thing but has a lot of energy! Contact 812-896-6968

"Amos" lab mix
2 years   Male

What a looker. Very sweet tempered. Likes other dogs. Doesn't seem to mind cats. About 55#.

If you would like an application for Amos, please email rockhaven83@gmail.com.

"Pixie" Min Pin Mix
1 to 2 years   Female

About 8-10 pounds. Had puppies. She is very playful and has a LOT of energy but also loves to snuggle up with you on the couch. She has super long legs and can jump really high. She is afraid of cats but is beginning to tolerate them. She loves other dogs and would probably do best in a home where she had a dog to play with. She is housetrained and crate trained. A home with a fenced yard would be nice because she loves to get outside and run like crazy. She likes to play rough with humans so a home with a small child probably wouldn't be a good fit. She still acts very much like a puppy. She is shy at first (even a little grumbly) but it took her less than 24 hours to come out of her shell and settle in in her foster home. Local Adoption only.

If you would like an application for Pixie, please email rockhaven83@gmail.com.

"Blueberry" Pit//boston mix
4-5 yrs   female

such a worried looking girl! Wearing a very tight collar and feels much better now that it has been removed. 42# and gentle. Walks well on a leash and loves people. Seems housebroken. Will stay in crate but prefers to sleep on the couch! OK with male dogs but needs to be the only female. Likes to play but can stay calm too. Contact Kjbarger@hotmail.com

"Tootsie" lab mix

brought in as a stray but the pup sure did get upset when the people left her behind at the shelter! Cute pup. Contact 812-896-6968

"Trixie" heeler mix
4-5 yrs   Spayed female

seems to be a pretty happy girl but this one has heartworms too. What an epidemic in our shelter. Everyone out there needs to be aware of having their current pets on a heartworm preventative - so vitally important! Thank you, Pam, for your help in getting Trixie treated!!!! She will now be in "rehab" for a month and then will be available for adoption.

"Sandy" australian shepherd mix
3-4 yrs   female

AVAILABLE MID APRIL....found running the countryside with several other younger dogs. Don't know if she was part of this pack or just joined them for the company. She doesn't look anything like the others but she does seem comfortable with them. After being treated for heartworm, Miss Sandy, surprisingly delivered 11 healthy puppies! Sandy will be ready for adoption in several months. emelfoster@frontier.com

"Munchkin" MinPin/Chihuahua Mix
6-7 years   Spayed Female

Surrendered because the owner had too many animals.
Has been through a lot of changes in the last couple of weeks. Settling into foster home but is housebroken and starting to get used to so many new things. would love a nice, quiet home where she can just sit on her person's lap and enjoy life! Local adoption only

If you would like to meet Munchkin, please call 812 896 6968.

"JoeMaxx" blue heeler
1-2 yrs   neutered male

great about entertaining himself!!!! Not good with poultry! Contact nitemare92@gmail.com

"Harley" terrier
10 months - 1 yr   male

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

"Bandit" beagle mix
2 years   Neutered Male

A little slow to warm up but once he decides you're OK, he will not leave your side. Would be a great companion for an older person. About 30#. Does need a physical fence. If you would like to meet Bandit, please call 812 896 6968.

"Turk" shepherd/akita mix
3-4 yrs   Neutered male

OUTSTANDING DOG! Turk, a 3-4 yr old male shepherd/akita mix, has tremendous ball drive and will stay focused whenever a ball is in sight. Appears to be deaf which may be why he looks at you so attentively. Smart as can be. Tested with other dogs and is fine with them. Would be good with another dog since he loves to play with them. Good with people too. Best in an adult household. About 78# Hope someone is willing to give this boy a chance! Turk is being obedience trained to hand signals and learning fast! IS LEARNING TO BE A HOUSEDOG!!! You need to see this boy in person. Contact emelfoster@frontier.com
