We very much believe in the slogan, "Don't shop. Adopt!" Melissa & I are both moms to rescued animals. She has her two pitbull pups, Wrigley and George and I have my Maine Coon mix, Jupiter Jack. There's no doubt that rescued animals have a way of wiggling into your heart and making your forget who rescued who.

That's why 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.

PC Pound Puppies

Meet Casper

Casper is almost 4 years old and he weighs in at 65 pounds. He is a sweet yellow lab, German Shephard mix just waiting for a foster or forever family. Here's what PC Pound Puppies have to say about Casper:

He is a great dog, good with dogs and cats, protective of his home and very friendly when taken out to public places.

He knows sit, down, shake, spin, jump up and will go to his kennel if told “kennel up” He’s an energetic guy who likes to play so an active family or another dog would be best.  He also sits politely for a nail trim. Casper is house trained, neutered and will be UTD on vaccinations, heartworm tested. If you can foster Casper please message our page. We provide a crate to use while he’s with you. If you are interested in adopting him, applications can be found on our website...

The PC Pound Puppies adoption fee is $150 which goes to cover a portion of the vetting costs. 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. See more adoptable dogs from PC Pound Puppies here and be sure to follow them on Facebook for the latest news and upcoming events. Unfortunately, due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, their weekly adoption events on Sundays at the Pet Food Center on First Avenue in Evansville have been cancelled for the foreseeable future. You can get in touch with PC Pound Puppies by email at pcpoundpuppies1@gmail.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 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.

Posey Humane Society

Meet Ms. Grace

This sweet lady is two and a half years old and has been described as "the real boss of Posey Humane."  They say she "loves ear rubs and snuggles but only on her terms." So in other words, Ms. Grace is very much a cat! She would do best in a home as an only pet and without small children. Her adoption fee is $40. The adoption fees include a microchip, spay or neuter, heartworm test and getting the animal up to date on vaccines. 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.
