Happy Tails


Happy Tail 11.26.18

Owner's Name: Natalie King
Pet's Name: Porky
City: Wapakoneta, Ohio

We were looking to find a companion for our other dog that we had adopted before from this shelter months earlier. I kept looking at their website and saw Porky's picture one day on there. It was love at first sight. Lol. I didn't know if he was a pig or a dog cause he was so chunky! He he. I knew that he would be the perfect fit for our family! Sure enough...he was! Everyone just adores him and compliments on how well mannered he is. A very calm personality! He wags his tail in this short fast way that resembles a piggy. I call him my "pig dog". He has helped my other dog with her anxiety. She no longer tears things up when I leave the house to run an errand! I would highly recommend this shelter! They are the best place that I have visited...and I've visited a few of them! The process is easier and less lengthy. The dogs seem happier.  They provide after support if needed. It is truly a great place to look for a pet and saves an animal at the same time from a cage or being put down. He is a pitt mix and looks very intimidating...however he is such a sweet boy! Pitts have a bad reputation, but, it's really a matter of the caretaker and how they are trained/raised. Never let their bad rap discourage you from taking a chance on one. When I look at how much this dog has brought to our lives...I can't imagine how anyone would have given him up or let him get away... So in love!

Happy Tail 10.22.18

Owner's Name: Brock & Meg Baker
Pet's Name: King
City: Botkins, Ohio

Our shelter story started with a Facebook post and ended with a happy family and dog. We were in the midst of looking for a companion for our Saint Bernard puppy, Willow, when we saw the shelter's post for King, a one-year-old Saint Bernard. After reading his story and looking through his photos, we just had to meet him. We are very grateful to the Shelby County Animal Shelter for helping us find King. He's been a wonderful pal for Willow and has truly become a part of our family. He's quite the entertainer at the park and dog class, and is an awesome member of Meg's welcoming committee when she gets home from work travels.

Happy Tail 10.8.18

Owner's Name: Brandon & Alicia Ferguson
Pet's Name: Hoosier
City: Sidney, Ohio

We adopted Hoosier in January 2018.  We lost our beloved Sammy a beagle lab also adopted from the shelter in August 2003 and were heart broken.  I had stopped at the shelter to get dog tags and visit the pups like I love to do. Saw Hoosier in the kennel and couldn’t resist. My husband had been looking for a blue tick hound for years.  I must say he’s been the most well manner boy we’ve ever had.  He was 6-8 months old when we adopted him. He’s now 1 1/2 years old.  He’s helped heal our broken hearts and gets along great with our other beagles.  Thanks for all you do and we’ll be life long supporters of the Shelby County Animal Shelter.

Happy Tail 9.24.18

Owner's Name: Laura Denney
Pet's Name: Marcus & Cleo
City: Sidney, Ohio

Marcus & Cleo came from the shelter when they were 1 day old. I took them home to foster, planning to bring them back when weaned. Found out at 6 weeks old that Marcus had a health issue that would make it hard for him to find a home, so we adopted him and his sister!

They are the best, sweetest kittens ever and we just adore them.

Happy Tail 6.19.18

Owner's Name: Linda & Chris Edwards
Pet's Name: Groot Thomas
City: Sidney, Ohio

We stopped at the shelter to drop off cans and came home with a puppy! Groot is a lab/aussi mix and was 11 weeks old when we brought him home. Shown here with his buddy Riley. Riley and our other little guy, Jax, were also rescued from The Shelby County Animal Shelter. All fantastic dogs. There's a reason dog and God have the same letters! Adopt, don't shop.

Owner's Name: Laughlin-Jarrell Family
Pet's Name: Groot
City: Sidney, Ohio

We adopted Groot, aka Bruce in May of last year. We saw his gorgeous long black fur and lovely bright green eyes and just fell in love!
He is a sweetheart who likes playing with his canine pal Venkman, and the face he's only got 1 hind leg doesn't slow him down at all! We are so glad we got to adopt him and give him a loving home.
