From our first day in operation in 2002 our singular purpose has been to find safe, loving homes for every adoptable Barbour County companion animal that is unfortunate enough to find itself lost, abandoned, neglected or abused.  

For the most part, we are able to place our 'fur kids' in a relatively short amount of time, but others have waited patiently for as much as years until the perfect adopter comes along.

While we find great joy in each and every successful adoption, it's particularly heartwarming for us to see the 'long timers' finally placed in that very special 'forever' home.

Day by day, one by one, young and old, big and small---we send them off to 'home sweet home'.

  Happy people!  Happy pets!


If you adopted a pet from us anytime in the past and you would like to send us a photo or two and a note, we'd love to hear from you.  Submissions can be made by clicking on the button below.
Little Ellie was overjoyed to be going home to be the new "best friend" in this family!
These folks thought our Minnie would be the perfect choice to go home with them.

And not too long after Minnie went home, we got this note from her new mom and dad . . .

Minnie is fantastic! Except we changed her name to Angel Sprinkle Sparkle! I just call her Angel. She is great in her crate and she’s doing well with potty training.  

Thanks for all you do and for the great opportunity to adopt Angel! We adore her.  Also, things are fine with getting along with Bandit!

Thanks again Liz and Prasad

One by one, the "T" puppies are leaving us. Tulip is sure to have a happy life with this lady!
Duke left us awhile back and has already decided he's thrilled with his new forever home!
Aspen, now named Amber, is going home to join a family of canines and new kitty friends, too!
Tilly, the last of the "T" puppies couldn't have been happier when she found out she'd be going home with this lady!

One more "T" pup is on her way HOME!  Tessa can't even begin to imagine all the fun, adventures and love that await her!  We think she's counting on treats, too!!

 We adopted little Phoebe with a call from Judy saying she was found wandering, covered in fleas and underweight. We’ve had her 4 years now and adore her, she’s so cute, funny, and sweet.

  My daughter and her husband adopted Ralphie from Judy over a year ago as a puppy and he is their baby boy, so playful and happy.  

We can’t thank you enough for the work you do and for bringing these wonderful pets into our lives.

Sweet L’il man, now known as Ziggy, is so lucky to be adopted by Shiloh and his family. Ziggy and Shi have already bonded, and we’re told that the little puppy follows him everywhere. A truly happy ending!

We've learned that Ziggy is LOVING life in his new home!  He especially enjoys going for walks where he meets new friends!
Hi Judy- I have been thinking about you on and off and wanted to send you another update on my precious baby girl Haylie. She has been such a joy! She is getting grey with age but is still so beautiful to me! She turns 9 years old on September 3rd. Can you believe it? Time has flown by. I got her when she was only 2 and a half! (March 2013)

Other than a couple of manageable health issues, she is a happy howling "puggy" and LOVES her mama! (me!) She loves her raw carrot slices and steamed green beans as treats. She has a couple of favorite toys and will frequently pick one up and carry outside with her when she goes out to potty. Silly girl! I keep telling her she isn't supposed to take her toys outside, but she doesn't listen very well.

Do you ever hear anything from Mikey or Emmie's forever families? (Haylie's father and sister)  I hope they are doing well and are as happy and healthy as my Haylie bug is.....

The 3rd photo is of both Max and Haylie. Max is on the left, Haylie is on the right.

Thinking of you....

What a GREAT day for our boy, Webber who had been waiting for quite some time for his chance to go to a forever home!

He's even got that big, goofy "I just got adopted!" smile on his face!

Our best wishes to all for many happy years together!!
Can't you just tell by the way his new mom is holding him, that Ju Ju is going to be a very special "baby" in his forever home?  We see lots of love, toys and treats in his future!  
It looks like Ju Ju is settling in just fine!  He's sure found himself a comfy spot on his mom's lap in that rocking chair!
Hi Judy! I took Webber, now Boone, to the vet today. The Dr thinks that this is just an allergic reaction to something. He put him on temaril-p to get it settled down. 
He is trying to settle in, just a little skittish to any unexpected noise. He is so sweet and I hope he soon feels completely at home.
Thank you both for spending time with me. I hope I can help you out in some way, some day.
Hello! I wanted let you know that Tulip, or Willow as she is now called, is doing great! She just had her vet check up and follow up boosters, and is scheduled to be spayed on 9/25. She has also gained 11 pounds since we took her in. We also did a dog DNA test and I’ve attached a picture of the results in case any other owners of her adopted siblings would like the information.  

Thank you and I’ll send in the form confirming her spay when that is done.

Just wanted to update you on sweet little Avery. She’s doing great! She has SOOO much energy and we now know where she gets it! I purchased a dna kit for her and look at the results! LOL! I’ve dubbed her a “miniature coonhound” :) I thought it would be something interesting and fun to share with you.

 We recently took a weekend trip to Detroit and Avery went with us and stayed in a pet friendly hotel. She seemed to really enjoy it and did very well. The other pictures I attached are from there. We have also been visiting our local dog park and letting her play with the big dogs. Thanks again for taking such good care of her! 

Tilly, now known as Ginger, is doing great. She has her first vet appointment the first if September to get her ready for spaying. Still working on the house training. She is so easy going and very loving. 

Little Lucy is now on her way home to a life filled with love and excitement!
Angel is doing great! She’s gained about a pound. She’s either crazy or all curled up and sweet. Here she’s sweet and quiet, all curled up next to Sarah....
Just a quick update---Pebbles is doing well. He has recently graduated puppy class at PetSmart, and we will be scheduling his neuter soon. 

Timing is EVERYTHING!  Ron came looking for a new "best friend" and Brush (now known as Rush) had spent just one day at the shelter and knew he wanted OUT!  Ron saw Rush and Rush saw Ron---and that was that!  We wish them many, many years of companionship and happiness!
