The Warrick Humane Society is a great place to find your new best friend. Unfortunately, right now adoptions are incredibly slow and they are completely full. WHS is a no-kill shelter so if they don't move these dogs out soon, other dogs from euthanasia shelters will not be able to take their place. So, this week, WHS is offering half-off adoption fees. This adoption special is valid on dogs older than 6 months who are fully vetted, and the adopted dogs must leave the shelter no later than 1 day after being adopted. The special runs 10/26 - 10/30.

Meet Jack

Jack is a one-year-old Boxer mix who weighs 53 pounds.  He has the best smile and the friendliest personality!  Jack loves to play ball, loves kids, gets along great with other dogs, and even gets along with cats. He walks well on a leash and is super sweet. He would do wonderful in a forever home with a family who can spend a lot of time with him spoiling him as he deserves. He would be even happier if there was another dog in the home to hang out with! Jack is neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm negative and up to date on heartworm and flea/tick prevention. His adoption fee is $200.

The shelter is open for visitation Wednesday - Sunday 12PM - 4PM with extended hours on Thursday until 7PM. Save time by submitting an adoption application on our website prior to visiting:


Meet Molly


Meet Molly. Molly is a pit mix that has been at the WHS for a little while now and is ready for her forever home! The BEST part about Miss Molly McMutt is that she is housetrained! She's four years old so she still lots of life left but old enough that she's settled down and doesn't have the puppy energy and habits. She doesn't care for cats so a home without feline friends would be best. She's awfully cute with her big doe eyes and sweet smile.


Meet Poppy


Meet Poppy! She's a beautiful three-year-old Pointer mix. Poppy is great with people, very tolerant, and enjoys snuggles. She has made some other doggie friends here at the shelter and is picky about others. We suggest a meet and greet if you have another dog. She keeps a clean kennel indicating that she is likely housebroken. Poppy has medium-high energy and knows a few basic commands such as sit and shake. This sweetie would love to be in her forever home!

Meet Pascha

Pascha is a beautiful 7.5-month-old pit mix looking for her forever home. She's spayed, heartworm tested, microchipped, and up to date on vaccines, flea/tick, and heartworm prevention. She only weighs 39 pounds now so we expect her to be a medium-sized dog.

The clinic is from 11AM -2PM (or later if pets are still being seen). Registration begins at 10AM and ends at 1PM. Registration is limited to the first 50 dogs or cats, and registration for the clinic is first come, first serve.
