Mama & Countess Need Families to Look After [WHS Pet of the Week]
If you are lucky enough to have a great mom, you know how important it is for them to always look out for their loved ones, have a kind demeanor, and always be ready for a snuggle. Two kind, older ladies are looking for their own families at the WHS.
Hey puddin'! I'm Mama. I'm a happy older lady (shhh I'm nine) and they say I'm a pit-bull mix. Did you know pitties were originally bred to be babysitter dogs? That's me to a tee! Now, I might be a bit older but that doesn't mean I just want to lay around all day. I still like playing and going for walks. I'm fine with little kids and other dogs but I sure don't like them cats! If you are interested in me, please put in an application today!

Bonjour, Mon Amour. I'm The Countess. I am about five-years-old, and I'm very outgoing. I do enjoy the company of other cats. I'd be happy to call your home, ma maison. <3 Jsqu'à ce que nous nous revoyions...

And if you are looking for someone with lots of energy, our Pet of the Week from two weeks ago is STILL available. How can this be? Meet ROSCOE!
Hello! I'm Roscoe. I'm a year-old cattle dog mix. I have SO MUCH ENERGY! I need a special family without other dogs or cats because I love my people so much - I don't want to share! I need someone who can teach me manners and just love me for who I am! I've been at the WHS since July so, I just have so much energy that I need to get out! Family, please come get me!

If you are interested in any of the animals up for adoption at the WHS, please be aware of their current 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Warrick Tails on Trails has started up again! Please watch their Facebook page for details!
OTHER STUFF HAPPENING AT THE WHS
If you want to adopt but can't, consider donating something to the shelter. They are currently in need of: Cat litter - any brand, laundry detergent - any brand HE, and bleach. There are also some upcoming fundraisers and events.
