Tails From Home
Tails from Home
Jenny
"I adopted "Hazel" from the Hamilton County
Humane Society in Noblesville, Indiana on 9/12/17. She was about 8 years old and full grown, but only weighed 6.5 pounds! The adoption counselor said that Hazel may look full size, but "she's all fluff". She had been turned in to the shelter as a stray and they named her, "Hazel". She had only been at the shelter for about 12 days and didn't respond to "Hazel". So I let her pick her name from about 20 choices and she picked "Jenny". I don't think Jenny was ever a stray, but it was obvious that she had been abused and neglected. She was filthy and the real Jenny is very much a neat-nick! She's very clean and rarely has any food, water, or litter out of place! When I brought her home she was terrified of everybody and everything! 
 
She hid in my closet for 3 months and only came out to quickly eat or use the litter box. If she  saw me or someone else - she rapidly retreated to her closet. After 3 months of positive reinforcement  and healing, she started to sleep with me in my bed. It was a relief to me because all I wanted to do was  love her and make her feel better. She still is reluctant to let me pick her up and hug her, but she lets me
cuddle with her in bed and gives me lots of kisses! Jenny is now up to a whopping 8 pounds which is where  my vet wants her. In the past month she has really started to show her personality. She runs around our  home with abandon, rolls on her back in the middle of the living room floor, plays with toys like a kitten,  and loves to be on our balcony with a view of a pond, fountain, ducks, and birds. She still hasn't conquered  the cat door to the balcony, but I'm sure my plucky little girl will master it one day! Thank you for  allowing me to find and fall in love with this very sweet cat!"

-Ellen, Jenny's Mom

 
We want to hear your happy adoption tails. 
Paws of the Month
Meet Henry
 

Oh, Henry!
 
This energetic 6-year-old is looking for his forever home - could it be with you?

Henry is currently our HSHC celeb! He's been attending red carpet events with our staff to show off his looks and find a forever home! He's even been given the title of, "Handsomest Dog Alive!" I mean, can you even resist that face?

Henry gets along well with other dogs and older kids. He politely asks that there are no cats in the home - he's not on the best of terms with the cat community. 

Despite his large size, Henry is quite the lover/cuddler. He loves his humans and will always be up for play time followed by a cuddle on the couch. His current favorite flick is "Secret Life of Pets."

   
 
Meet Regina
 
Meet your queen!

Regina is a 13-years-young with stunning green eyes. She'd seen a bit of battle before coming to HSHC, but she's recovered and is ready for her new kingdom! 

She had a short reign in 2015, but had to abdicate her throne when her owner moved into assisted living. No kitties allowed, no matter their status. 

Our queen is sweet as can be, but can be hesitant at first. She has to make sure you're friend, not foe! Regina has a healthy appetite and also enjoys a few delicious snacks throughout the day, maybe followed by a cat nap. 

Come to the shelter and request an audience with Regina. She's the queen you've been looking for! 

Special Recognition
Volunteer of the Month
Kathy Sharp

"As with most volunteers, I volunteer because I am passionate about the welfare of all animals and volunteering for and supporting HSHC is the best way I know to demonstrate that passion and caring.  Secondly, passion and caring alone are only the start.  It takes lots of dollars to provide a no-kill, high quality shelter which is why I spend lots of time at Trends for Tails Resale Boutique, finding avenues for donated items, and helping other Trends volunteers make the shop a wonderful and inviting shopping venue.  Finally, the enthusiasm, positive attitudes, and support provided by HSHC staff is contagious and welcoming to volunteers. From the first moment I volunteered, I felt appreciated and supported."
