When I adopted my dog Chaz many years ago, I knew he'd had a really rough start to life and his behavioral and aggression issues were a direct result of being mistreated as a puppy. But, I also think his past made him truly appreciate and even love me on a deeper level.

Eli also has a sad story. He was adopted out from WHS five years ago. But, was found back in June and returned to the WHS by animal control. He was heart worm positive.

Elis is currently in a foster home and receiving treatment but he needs to find his forever home. Linsdey, the Director at WHS told me he's sweet and friendly to everyone he meets. He'd be a great family dog. And with such a rough start in life, I'm sure he too would appreciate his new family on an even deeper level.

And if you want to adopt but can't, consider donating something to the shelter. They are currently in need of: Cat litter - any brand, Landry detergent - any brand HE, and Bleach. There are also some upcoming fundraisers and events.

If you are interested in any of the animals up for adoption at the WHS, please be aware of their current COVID-19 policies.

WHS COVID-19 Policies:

  • Adoptions are by appointment only - please fill out an adoption application online, and we will contact you to set up an appointment. Applications can be found here: https://warrickhumanesociety.org/adoption-info/
  • We will schedule three adoption appointments per hour, and only two people per family/group will be allowed in the shelter at one time. This will allow for people to spend time looking for the right pet while practicing social distancing. Additional people/family members will be allowed to wait outside and the pet (dogs only) can be taken out to meet with them. This will also allow ample time for staff to properly clean between each adoption.
  • Masks are required by everyone while in the shelter. Please bring your own mask. If you do not have one, the shelter has some for purchase for $1 each.
  • To keep traffic to a minimum, we will not be allowing volunteers inside the shelter at this time. We will have things for volunteers to do outside. If you're interested, please email volunteerwarrick@gmail.com.
  • Warrick Tails on Trails has started up again! Please watch their Facebook page for details!
