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 Buddy

Buddy is a handsome little guy. He's about 6 years old or as our friends at PC Pound Puppies call him, middle-aged.  He didn't have the greatest start to life - according to PC Pound Puppies,

Buddy is a middle aged guy who has lived his life outside in a rabbit hutch! Yes, a rabbit hutch. We cannot even imagine how he has lived. He needs someone to show him love and tlc. In his foster home he is housetrained and good with dogs, kids and cats.

 

He is available for a two week trial adoption where we can loan you a crate leash and collar during the trial.

As you can tell from the photo, Buddy is going to make a most excellent buddy! If you think you would make a good companion for Buddy, 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.

Posey Humane Society

Meet Amelia

This sweet little tuxedo kitty is Amelia. She has the cutest little pink nose and big ears to compliment her black and white coat. She is waiting on someone like you to scoop her up and take her home. She would love a soft bed and a warm lap to cuddle in and something tells me she would be your new best friend.

Amelia is up to date on his vaccines, microchipped and spayed. Her adoption fee is a small investment to bring so much love into your life.

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.

To prepare yourself for a potential incident, always keep your vet's phone number handy, along with an after-hours clinic you can call in an emergency. The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center also has a hotline you can call at (888) 426-4435 for advice.

Even with all of these resources, however, the best cure for food poisoning is preventing it in the first place. To give you an idea of what human foods can be dangerous, Stacker has put together a slideshow of 30 common foods to avoid. Take a look to see if there are any that surprise you.
