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 Queen

Queen is one of five terrier mix puppies that PC Pound Puppies have just taken into their care. She is sweet as can be and full of puppy energy. She and her siblings are not housetrained yet but they are up to date on their shots and have also been spayed and neutered. Queen is obviously quite young she weighs in at 20 pounds - and still growing.

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, the weekly PC Pound Puppies 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.

Meet Houdini

This week's adoptable kitty is definitely a handsome little man and an escape artist! Posey County Humane says that Houdini,

loves to hide until he gets to know you! Once he warms up to you he will be your best friend and snuggle buddy.

He is FIV positive so Houdini will need to bein a home where he is the only cat. Feline Immunodeficiency Virus is only contagious among cats and is difficult to transmit. Posey Humane says that FIV requires no special treatment. At this time, Houdini is living in the PHS Cat Den with two cat buddies who are both FIV positive also. They say he does fine with cats, children and dogs upon proper introductions.

Posey Humane Society has plenty of other kitties as well as lots of dogs, both young and old. Their adoption fees are $30 for cats, $50 for kittens up to 6 months old, $100 for dogs and $150 for puppies under 6 months old. The adoption fees include their 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
