Irvine, KY: CLARICE NEEDS RESCUE!  Fully vetted! Transport help available! Clarice Domestic Long Hair Young Femal - Clarice was pulled from the Estill County Shelter in June. She had 3 kittens with her at the shelter, 1 was adopted. She along with the remaining two kittens were pulled to avoid euthanasia and went to a temporary local foster. Sadly the two remaining kittens fell ill and passed away suddenly. Clarice is a beautiful, petite, long haired young female. She is extremely shy, once cornered she loves to be petted, with too much freedom and places to hide she will revert to being less social. She absolutely hates to be held and will struggle mightily to get down but has not bitten or scratched. I feel with a really good foster who can spend a lot of time with her, Clarice will blossom into a wonderful cat. She will still probably do best in a quiet home with a another nice calm cat, she adores our young cat Nanook who is friendly and playful. She is skinny, a bit finicky about eating loves the gravy off of wet food but the not food, loved the Iams kitten chow but is eating Purina Muse Salmon flavored dry. Maybe more brands need to be explored to find something she really likes. CONTACT: Email: [email protected]  or Sherry Reams - PH: Cell  (859) 582-1279 Home (606) 723-7367 Email: [email protected]

 POSTED 7/12  - Please do not think all the animals on our list are safe, they are not. HBW posts animals in need of rescue on behalf of 4 different facilities in the areas of Quincy, IL and Hannibal, MO. Transport is available!

CONTACT: Email: [email protected]

Just a reminder that HBW, Inc does not perform adoptions, we only do shelter to shelter transfers. Therefore all animals posted are sitting in a kennel somewhere no closer to their forever home.

In need of rescue but not listed: Odin, Mittens, Socks and Boots.

Rudy American Staffordshire Terrier Adult Male -  NEUTERED, ALL VACCINES.  2-3 years old. Rudy was an owner surrender for not getting along with the other dog in the house.   Rudy is a very nice guy and good with kids as there were kids in the home but he needs to be an only pet.  The biggest and number one issue we see with Rudy is he needs someone to teach him some manners.  He isn’t a bad dog but it is clear no one has worked with him.   He is neutered and current on rabies, DHPPL and Bordetella.  He will be heartworm tested prior to transport.

Reggie American Staffordshire Terrier Mix Young Male - Has ALL VACCINES.  5.5 months old. This little guy is just the cutest!!!!   He is so sweet and loving!!!  He loves kids and other dogs.  He was surrendered because the lady who owned him her and her kids lived with the grandmother. The grandmother was tired of the daughter not working with him and not training him so he was jumping on her and the grandkids and doing all the things that untrained puppies do.   So Reggie had to go.   He is not neutered and too young to heartworm test but is current on vaccines.  He has to be with other dogs.  We learned that in the shelter by himself he shut down and wouldn’t eat, but once he was put with other dogs that he could play with he bounced right back.
Zara American Staffordshire Terrier SENIOR Female - MEDICAL URGENT! OBESE! SPAYED, MC, HW NEG, ALL VACCINES. 9 years old, 62 lbs! Zara has had a rough go of it. She surrendered just over two years ago. She spent almost a full year in the shelter and then her lucky day came, so she thought. She was finally adopted! Fast forward one year and she is surrendered again. Why? Because she needs to be an only dog, the person adopting her knew that. The girlfriend moved in with her dog and back to the shelter Zara was sent. Sadly the owner didn’t take the best care of her the last year either and let her eat all she wanted and she gained a whopping 25 lbs! She came back in at 72lb with a leaky bladder so she was started on Proin. She has lost 10lbs and is now down to 62lbs and the leaky bladder seems to be correcting itself now that the weight is coming off. She really is super sweet and friendly and would make a great dog for an older couple/ person that wants a companion and someone to take for walks. She is fully vetted since she has been adopted before.

Butch Min Pin Adult Male URGENT! NEUTERED, ALL VACCINES. 4 years old.  Poor Butch was surrendered because they said he was just too high strung and couldn’t deal with it anymore.  He was super excited to greet me when I entered his kennel and came right to me. Even in the photos  you can see he just smiles!!   He is good with everything dogs, cats and kids.   He is neutered and current on rabies, DHPP and Bordetella.  He will be heartworm tested prior to transport.

 Sandy Domestic Short Hair Dilute Torbie Young Female URGENT!  FIV/LEUK NEG, ALL VACCINES.  1 year old. Sandy was surrendered with a litter of 4 kittens. The kittens have gone to rescue, but Sandy is still looking.  She is very sweet and affectionate and would make a great companion. She is FIV/Leuk tested negative and current on rabies and FVRCP

Frick & Frack Domestic Short Hair BABY Males URGENT! FIV/LEUK  NEG, FVRCP.  10 weeks old. Owner surrenders as  owner had  too many cats and kittens. This due is a volunteer favorite to watch and play. They are active little guys and rush to the cage door when you open to leap in to your arms. They are super adorable.

Annabelle Domestic Medium Hair Adult Female -  FIV/LEUK NEG, ALL VACCINES. 1.5 years old. Annabelle was found as a stray and not reclaimed.  The person who brought her in thought she was a kitten because she is so tiny.  She is very sweet and affectionate and would make a great companion. She is FIV/Leuk tested negative and current on rabies and FVRCP.

Selina SENIOR Female - EYE DAMAGE! Selina came to the shelter as a stray. She is a very sweet kitty that seems to have had a bit of a rough life. Selina has some damage to her eyes, likely from a severe infection that was never treated. She seems to see okay and gets around without any issues. She will likely need prescription eye drops on and off the rest of her life so her new family will need to be prepared for that. Selina is estimated to be about 10 years old but is in good physical condition. She is fine with other kitties and very easy going.

Barkley Terrier Mix Small Adult Male - ADOPTION SPONSORED! Weighs 25lbs. Meet one of our very special guys, here at the shelter. Barkley originally came to us back in 2016, with his brother. They were petrified and we could tell they had a very troubled past. He was finally adopted in 2017 to whom we thought understood he was going to need time and patience. Unfortunately that wasn’t the case and he's been with us ever since. You will not see Barkley in the runs or small dog/puppy room however. He runs around with us. It still takes him some time to get used to people, but once he knows he can trust you, he's a friend for life. Barkley is heartworm positive which we recommended you speaking with your veterinarian about treatment. Barkley needs to be in a calm laid back home with no young children, and without a lot of new people in and out. We know that his special person out there somewhere, and we are not gonna give up on him.

Clyde Shepherd Mix Medium Adult Male -  HW POSITIVE! 2 years old, 42 pounds. Clyde found himself wandering the streets. Unfortunately no one ever came looking for him, but he’s not letting that get in the way of his future. Clyde seems to love everyone he meets. He gets along with other dogs also. Clyde is heartworm positive, so you would need to talk with your veterinarian about treatment options and pricing.

Belle - Shepherd Mix Medium Young Female - Spayed. Belle was recently returned to us. Belle is a very nervous girl, and has trouble trusting. She needs to trust on her own time. Belle currently shares a kennel with Buddy Mac, who also is a little bit of a nervous guy. They seem to do great with each other, and she seems a little more relaxed with him being in there with her. Belle deserves a home that will show her the love and attention she deserves. She’s a great girl, and would make a wonderful companion. She just needs someone who will give her the chance she needs, and not give up on her.  E!  Belle - Shepherd Mix Medium Young Female - Spayed. Belle was recently returned to us.

 Andi Boxer Mix Medium Adult Female - LONG TIMER! AT SHELTER FOR 3 YEARS! 45lbs.  The wonderful ladies who care for me at the shelter tell me every day how wonderful I am and that I am such a good girl. So, why do I not have a family to call my own? I get along with most dogs and love every human who takes the time to give me attention. I wag my tail and dance when anyone walks into the kennel area. I love people. I have been at the shelter the longest of any dog! I am a young, attractive young pup who would be a wonderful addition to your family. I am spayed, vaccinated, wormed, flea treated.

Magic Mike Labrador Retriever Mix Medium Adult Male - LONG TIMER!   Good with cats and children. Magic Mike is about five years old and a medium-sized dog. He is a small lab, in other words. Why this sweet, eager to be loved dog is stuck in a shelter is unknown. He is so adoptable and so cute! He likes kids and adults, but has trust issues. He also doesn't like other dogs, due to his hard life scrounging
and fighting for food. He needs a home where he will be loved and appreciated. He has had shots. He weighs about 40 pounds.
 Willie Feist Medium Adult Male - Good with cats, children and other dogs. What a cutie Willie is! He is about 1-2 years old and weighs about 35 pounds. He is a small to medium-sized dog. He likes to have fun and play and would make a great little family dog.
Willie likes to boss male dogs, but when he is neutered, this tendency will cease.He is a friendly, happy dog that needs a loving home.

 Max Pit Bull Terrier Medium Adult Male - LONG TIMER! Good with other dogs and children. I'm Max, a strong pit bull with a heart of gold. I came to the shelter with Cassie. We were removed from our home due to neglect. We were too skinny, had worms, and were tied up. We are much healthier now. I am friendly, but cautious. I like people and other dogs, but NOT cats. However, if another dog challenges me, I will challenge him back with growls. When I get neutered, I'll be more appreciative of other male dogs! I weigh 55 pounds. I am a family dog, not meant to be tied or penned up.

Johnie Pit Bull Terrier Medium Young Male - Good with other dogs and children. Would prefer a home without cats. Johnie came to the shelter as a stray. He is still fun-loving. He likes everybody, is a baby really, and is good with other dogs. He is very handsome, and strong, but easily trainable. He would make a great companion for a home that can give him daily exercise and attention. He is a pet, not a watch dog - he is too friendly for that role-and not to be tied up. He belongs with a family who will treat him as the treasure he is. He weighs about 55 pounds.

Artie Feist Mix  Medium Adult Male -  35lbs, 1-2 years old. Good with other dogs, children and cats.  I'm a small to medium little brown fellow with a cute, short tail! I have a fun-loving personality, and I love to smile! I was a stray that was brought to the shelter with an unknown past. Can you make up for what I have lost? I would make a great family pet.

Peppermint Hemingway Polydactyl Young Male - I have grown up at the shelter, which is a shame. I am a male kitten, about 7 months old with extra toes on my front paws, so I am unique! I look like I have an attitude, but really, I love attention, and to play and have fun.

Snowball Domestic Short Hair White Adult Male - Blue eyes! blue eyes! I have plush, short hair and I am very sweet. I live in a foster home with other cats and dogs. I must be an indoor house cat. 1-2 years old. No rough-handling or chasing.

  Jasmine Russian Blue/Domestic Short Hair Mix Medium Adult Female - LONG TIMER! About 2 years old. Loving, quiet and curious. Good with other cats, dogs and children. If you want a beautiful silver/blue cat, then I am for you! I have been at the shelter for a few months with a lot of interested adopters, but no one has committed to me. What a shame!
I am calm, quiet, but young enough to play. I love to climb to the highest spot I can find, and watch and explore. So, a cat tree would be perfect for me! Since I am the quiet-type, I love to chill out. I am fine boned and elegant. I am a beauty!
Biggie Smalls Domestic Short Hair Tabby Adult Male - ONE EYE HAS BEEN REMOVED! Biggie Smalls is a handsome tabby male with nice chocolate tabby stripes. He is about two years old and lives in a foster home with other cats. Unfortunately, Biggie Smalls had an eye infection when he was a kitten that required one eye to be removed. But, that doesn't stop him from playing and being an affectionate cat! He is best as a housecat, due to lack of sight on one side. He could get in trouble real quick outside. Biggie is also neutered.

 Melon Domestic Hair Orange Tabby Extra Large Adult Male - I am called Melon because of my color. I am a deep orange tabby. I am extra large, and a love bug. I love to be petted and get attention, but I am not demanding. I am a laid-back guy. I like other cats and dogs and people, too! I am neutered and had my shots.

April  Domestic Medium Hair Tuxedo Medium Adult Female - LONG TIMER! AT SHELTER FOR OVER 1 YEAR! Loving, shy, quiet and playful. Good with other cats, dogs and children. I came to the shelter with my sister and her kittens. They have all been adopted, but I'm still here! I have big, beautiful eyes, semi-long hair, and a very sweet temperament. I don't know why no one wants me. I am quiet, and a bit shy, so I need a quiet home with older children until I get used to my new home.

 Franklin Domestic Short Hair/Tiger Mix Large Adult Male - Franklin is one of the most loving cats we have ever met. He loves to be petted and butts his head against your hand, encouraging you to pet him. He loves attention and is very gentle. Franklin came to us as a surrender due to skin conditions. Our vet concluded that this precious young cat suffers from severe food allergies. Unless he is kept on a grain-free diet, he itches and his skin and eyes become inflamed. The cure is simple: a grain-free diet only. Rachel Ray grain-free dry is what he is eating at the shelter, and his improvement is remarkable. Please give this one-of-a-kind Franklin a good inside home, where he will love you forever.
