Featured Pet Of The Week

Hope is a sweetie. She is a 1 yr old, fully vetted female shorthair. She just loves her people and is always ready to get attention. Contact Sue at 812 820 1680 or sueann60@hotmail.com

IN FOSTER: Munchkin is still looking for her new home and family! She is a 7 yr old minpin, fully vetted and spayed. She came from a hoarding situation so she was not socialized like most dogs her age. Despite her background, Munchkin is affectionate and loves attention...once she knows you are her friend. "Munch" curls up and sleeps with her foster mom every night and when relaxing on the couch, she is right there with all the other fosters. She does pretty well on a leash but is wary of new situations and will shy away. Munchkin is also housetrained. If you would like to meet her, contact Amy at 812-704-4131 or email at a_morr@live.com "Local Adoption Only"

"Zac" Border Collie Mix
10 mo   neutered male

He is shy although he will walk on a leash a little bit. Is getting better and seems to enjoy attention. Owner called but doesn't want the dogs back - he did say they had been in the house so are familiar with house manners. Very people oriented. Very quiet. Contact nitemare1962@gmail.com

"Jasmine" chihuahua mix
11 yr   spayed female

IN FOSTER: owner went to nursing home. This little gal is close to 15 pounds and you just want to hug her - she's very squishable.

She appears housebroken and will trot right along on a leash. contact emelfoster@frontier.com

"Maggie Mae" pit bull
2 years   Spayed Female

IN FOSTER: Maggie ended up at the shelter because her dad was sick and getting worse. Her mom couldn't take care of both of them. Mom brought ALL of Maggie's things to the shelter. She couldn't stand to have any reminders of Maggie in the house.

Maggie knows sit, shake and drop. Housebroke.

Maggie could stand to loose a pound - or 10. She probably weighs about 60# right now.

She LOVES to play with other dogs. She does rush up to other dogs to show her enthusiasm to play.

We are working on walking better on a leash. Maggie is always in a rush to get where she is going.

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

" Jenna "
1 year   F

Jenna is a light gray tabby and the perfect little female kitty for your family. Contact Sue at 812 820 1680 or sueann60@hotmail.com

"Luna" terrier/lab
3 yr   spayed female

IN FOSTER: Luna is HEARTWORM POSITIVE so she is on hold for the moment. She is good with dogs and ok with cats although she does have some interest in chasing them. She was a little hesitant around men but is now sitting with husband and letting him pet her so she is already becoming much more trusting of men. She enjoys being in the house and is crate trained. Not fully housebroken but we are working on that. She will go into a crate and sleep quietly through the nite. Luna weighs 30 pounds so is a great size family pet. She has not had her treatment yet so if you would like to help with Luna's treatment, please contact send to HSSCI, PO Box 711, Scottsburg, IN 47170.

"Cosmos" husky mix
1-2 yrs   male

AT THE SHELTER...bi eyed and quite unique looking. Thin build - looks like he could run like the wind. Friendly.

"Pearl" lemon beagle
6-7 yrs   spayed female

IN FOSTER: HEARTWORM POSITIVE - please have your animals and put them on monthly heartworm preventative. ...not nearly as old as she looks. Was wandering with her friend, Ellie Mae, through the back roads on the west side of town. Was seen on and off for about a week before they ended up getting to the shelter and to safety. They were hungry and tired by the time they were picked up - tongues hanging out all the way to their toes! Speaks beagle.

If you are interested in Pearl, please email rockhaven83@gmail.com. She will be available the end of June when her heartworm treatment "rehab" time is over.

"Wiley" Shepherd / husky mix IS BACK
1-2 years   Neutered Male

THIS GUY IS BACK AND SAFE AND SOUND! Thank you Katie, for keeping an eye out.

He was running with a beagle. Obviously likes other dogs. A privacy fence would probably be best for this boy. Going to see how he does in a 6' fence. He escaped from a 4' fence.

Likes other dogs About 45#.
