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 Tucker

Two-year-old Tucker is as handsome as he is hunky. He weighs in at around 50 pounds and this guy loves a good squeaky toy! According to PC Pound Puppies,

...Tucker is stealing hearts with his looks. He's a rather stalky, brindle pit bull terrier. He is house and crate trained. He walks okay on a leash after his initial energy is out. He's is good with other dogs but might try to hum, just needs to be put in his place by the dog. He is completely obsessed with squeaky toys and will carry them around everywhere. He also loves the water and would probably make a great dog for going out on the lake.

If you think you would make a good companion for Tucker, please contact PC Pound Puppies.

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 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 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 Twix

Twix is a unique and beautiful little lady. With her long, soft torti fur she is waiting for some Netflix & purr time. She definitely would make a perfect companion.

At first glance at Twix, you will notice she is missing an eye, but look closer and you will see a beautiful girl, with stunning colors and long coat.  We are not sure what happened to Twix’s eye, but we do know she is a sweetheart.

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.
