Pets of the week

GREENVILLE - The Darke County Animal Shelter has many pets available for adoption, including several breeds of dogs, as well as cats and kittens. The Shelter chooses pets to feature each week, this week they've selected:

Ernie is a 4 year old Springer Spaniel mix. He is black and white with a little brown. He has long hair. He is a friendly guy who loves attention. He weighs around 50 pounds. He walks well on a leash and is current on his shots. He will make a wonderful friend and companion. He has been altered and is looking for a good home. He is ready for adoption. 

Hank is an 8 year old Australian Cattle dog (blue heeler). He is black, gray and brown with short hair. He is full of energy and doesn’t know his age. He is a little over weight, but with a good diet and some loving care he will be just fine. He loves attention and does know some commands.  He is current on his shots and will make a super dog for an active family. He is ready for adoption.

They also have a boxer mix, a coon dog, a blond lab mix, a Spaniel, and a few other dogs as well as cats and kittens ready for adoption.

They have had a tremendous adoption/redemption rate. If they don’t have what you want now, please keep checking. The right dog might come in tomorrow. The rate is over 80%. This success is due to the website, pet finder, newspapers, word of mouth and radio. Their only social media outlet is “The Darke County Friends of the Shelter”. Any other social media postings are not affiliated or endorsed by the Darke County Animal Shelter.

The Shelter hours are 8am till 4:30pm Monday-Friday and 9:00 till noon on Saturday. The Shelter is located at 5066 County Home Road in Greenville, and the phone number is 547-1645.
