POSTED 8/8 -  They are a high intake facility, taking in over 12,000 animals a year. In order to help rescues help them, all dogs are fully vetted and have no pull fee.  Please take a moment each day to share some of these dogs. Space is limited at Animal House and not all of these dogs will have the chance to get there (and be more in the public eye) BUT that doesn't make them any less worthy of a foster or adoptive home! Please be sure to include the animal's ID number in all correspondence. Transport can be arranged, they run weekly from Louisville.   Please be sure to include the animal's ID number in all correspondence.

Annie English Coonhound Mix Medium Adult Female -

Eli Pit Bull Terrier Large Adult Male - BLIND! Help Eli find a home! This four-year-old boy recently came into the shelter as a stray and is having a difficult time adjusting to shelter life. While it is stressful for any pet to adjust to the new smells and sounds of the shelter, Eli's anxiety is compounded because of his lack of eyesight. We believe this sweet boy is blind, which means he is experiencing this scary place in the dark. This has made Eli extremely fearful. Please help comfort this scared guy! Sweet boy.

Tinkie Domestic Short Hair Large Adult Male -

Mark Domestic Long Hair Large Adult Male - FREE TO APPROVED ADOPTER! This five-year-old handsome fella found his way into the shelter as a stray about three months ago. He is very laid back and does not need much to be a happy cat. All this boy needs is the right family to love him unconditionally and a comfortable couch to cuddle up and sleep on.

Honey Bun Domestic Long Hair Large Adult Female - Spayed. This seven-year-old darling came to the shelter about a month ago after her owner passed away. Not only has Honey Bun had to cope with this tragic loss, but she's also had to make the transition from a cozy home to the stressful shelter. The transition has been hard on her. Honey Bun loves affection and cuddles!

There are two ways to see the shelter's animals who are online: 1 - Animals in the adoption program (Animal House) can be viewed at:  2 - Other animals waiting in the shelter who are NOT in the adoption program (and therefore only available to rescues) can be seen at by searching for Louisville Metro Animal Services using 40215 zip code. There are Chis, JRTs, Dalmatians, Labs, Doxies, Beagles, Lhasas, Bassets, Danes, Australian Shepherds, Boston Terriers, Collies, Yorkies, Pitties, Pyrs, Boxers, and anything else you can imagine. Metro gets a huge number of purebred animals and a ton of absolutely perfect mixed breeds. These animals really need help. They aren't even in the adoption program.

Rizzo Lab Mix Large Young Female URGENT  Rizzo is around 6-7 months old. She is some type of lab mix. Rizzo is a shy girl, but she has opened up a lot since she's been at the shelter. She is great with other dogs! Unfortunately, she has an injured leg she is on medication for, but she may possibly need surgery for.
Rambo Pit Bull Terrier Large Adult Male - This sweet 6 year old boy is Rambo. He came to us a little skinny but he's putting some weight back on. He can be nervous around new people, so you have to give him some time to warm up to you. Once he does he is such a sweetheart! Rambo loves back scratches, and to cuddle up on his blanket in his kennel (so I'm sure he'd love a couch much more!) He does have an old injury to his leg, but it doesn't seem to bother him and it surely doesn't let him down!

MESSAGE FROM NEW SHELTER MANAGER: As my first week we winding up, I realized that I have not introduced myself. My name is Kevin Crum. I am the new Ohio County Animal Shelter Manager. I am a married Iraq war veteran with 3 wonderful children. The shelter’s and my goal is to come close to a no kill shelter as possible. The only way that can happen is with the support of the community and rescues, and using social media to get the word out to the community as much as possible. There are changes that are coming to the shelter. The community cat room isn't being used at this time due to the kennels being open and the risk of spreading disease is high, So with that the goal is that room to be turned into a meet and greet room for potential adopters. No other room in the facility is being changed at this time. Animals are not being euthanized after 10 days. There is always two individuals making that call. As the shelter manager if I see any rare case that it does need to happen, I will consult a veterinarian before anything is done per Ohio county animal Policy and Procedure manual section 19.01. With the help of the community and rescues the animal shelter will continue to be a positive light in the county.
