Adoptable Dog in Southern Indiana Looks Just Like a Real Version of Zero from ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ [GALLERY]
We've teamed up with our rescue friends in Posey County, Indiana. Each week we share an adoptable dog from PC Pound Puppies and an adoptable feline friend from Posey Humane Society as well as details on how you can make them a forever part of your home. Let me introduce you to your next best friend.
Spanky has had a bit of a rough go of things as of late. He came to our rescue friends more than a little unhealthy with some really terrible dental issues and skin infections. Luckily for Spanky, he found himself with some of the most caring humans to care for him. This ten-year-old guy weighs just 13 pounds and is good with other dogs, still has a lot of spunk, and does enjoy a good car ride. He also prefers to sleep with his people, and frankly, at his age and all he's been through, this guy deserves nothing less. According to PC Pound Puppies,
He recently had a dental and at least half of his teeth were removed due to infection. He has lost vision in his left eye and he has no natural tears so he requires daily prescription eye drops for life. His hair is growing back but he is still getting medicated baths 3 x week. We believe that Spanky had been fed table scraps with his previous owner so switching over to kibble has been a challenge. His foster mom has agreed to compromise and he gets half kibble and half chicken.
And the more we got to looking at Spanky, the more he resembled Zero from The Nightmare Before Christmas.
Adoptable Indiana Dog Looks Just like Zero from 'The Nightmare Before Christmas'
The PC Pound Puppies standard adoption fee is $175 ($250 for puppies 6 months and under, or small dogs 15lbs or below) which covers a portion of the dog's vetting costs. The adoption process includes the completion of an application followed by an interview. If you're interested in adding this pup to your family, you can fill out an adoption application here. The adoption process does require a completed application as well as an interview. The rescue will not schedule a meet and greet without having first received a completed application.
You can get in touch with PC Pound Puppies by email at email@example.com or by phone at 812-483-4341. They do respond to inquiries and adoption applications at the earliest opportunity, but please remember to be patient as they are volunteers who all work full-time jobs. They always do their best to return messages and schedule adoption interviews within a couple of days of receiving your application. Again, you can submit an application here.
Meet Three Kittens in Mittens
These three kittens are the cutest thing in mittens you will see all day and one - or all of them - could be your new best friend. Bubbles is the female in the bunch but she and her male counterparts, all born April 29, 2021 and all six months old, have all been spayed and neutered. They are also up to date on their vaccines and are microchipped as well. With an adoption fee of just $40 each, why not take them all home with you?
Posey Humane Society has plenty of other kitties as well as lots of dogs, both young and old. If you're interested in meeting this week's adoptable cat or any of the other wonderful and deserving animals in the care of Posey Humane Society, you can visit them on Facebook or by visiting their official website, PoseyHumane.org. They are also in need of foster homes where the animals can wait for their forever families without having to stay inside the shelter.
