Clover Adult Female - 2 years old, 69lbs. Clover was pulled from the Estill County Animal Shelter back in March 2017 for medical care. She had a painful limp so we had x-rays taken. X-rays revealed she must have been hit by a car. Since that time Clover has healed, has been spayed, updated on vaccinations, has tested negative for Heartworm and microchipped. UTD on HW and flea prevention. Clover is a bundle of pure love. She is GREAT WITH OTHER DOGS. Not sure about cats but she loves everyone in her family. When she bonds with someone and is on a walk on leash she likes to protect her family and does not let people reach out to her. This is an area she needs work on. Recently while on a walk a person approached her foster person rapidly to pet Clover without permission. Clover bit her and then realized immediately she had done something wrong and dropped to the ground. She is out of quarantine. Animal Control said she was the sweetest girl with them and never saw anything bad from her. She really needs a large fenced in yard to play and run. She has been to many adoption events in Lexington and area with no luck of finding that forever family to love her. Can you be the one to give her a chance?

He is UTD and on HW preventative and flea/tick preventative.
 Kayla Young Female URGENT! 6 months old, 36lbs. Kayla recently started having seizures. Her family took her to the vet and got medication for her. They are now seeking rescue for her, not because they don't want to provide for her, but because they financially cannot. The family's young son has an unknown lung issue that they are in the middle of trying to get diagnosed and the mom just lost her job. They also have another child and a cat to provide for. They are devastated about not being able to do more for Kaya, but they want to give her a chance to get the proper care. Today, Kaya is on the last dose of medications that were prescribed and the vet asked them to bring her back in this week for a follow-up, but they cannot afford it. They haven't even been able to pay their vet bill from last Friday and they cannot afford the refill of seizure meds she needs. THE SITUATION IS URGENT!

POSTED 11/16  Though the shelters try very hard to not euthanize eventually they have to euthanize dogs and cats on this list that are not getting any interest to make space.  So 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. Transportation is available to your desired location!

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; ie shelter or boarding facility, no closer to their forever home.

 In need of rescue but not listed: Jeb, Calvin, and Reeses

Mokie Lab/American Pit Bull Terrier Mix URGENT!  HW POSITIVE!  HAS ALL VACCINES.  3.5 years old . Mokie was brought in as a stray Jan 5th. She clearly had puppies prior to this.  We are guessing she was dumped after the puppies were weaned as no one came looking for her.  We don’t know why as she is SUPER friendly and well mannered. She knows sit and wait and LOVES to play fetch.   She is good with kids. She is fine with dogs but honestly has no interest in being with them. She is very much a people dog and just wants to be with people.  She will chase cats.   She is not spayed but is current on rabies, DHPPL and Bordetella. She has been started on the slow kill method for heartworms.   She has been in the system 7 months now, will someone please give this sweet girl a chance.

Winston Border Collie Mix Adult Male URGENT! NEUTERED, HW NEG, ALL VACCINES. 2.5 years old.  Winston is a good boy but needs a home that can handle his high energy and high herding drive.  He is good with other dogs and does well in play groups every day.  He probably needs to be in a home with another dog to help tire him out each day.  He is neutered, heartworm tested negative and current on rabies, DHPPL and Bordetella.
Rudy American Staffordshire Terrier Adult Male URGENT! NEUTERED, ALL VACCINES. 2 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 according to the owner 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.
Gia Terrier/All American Mutt Mix Young Female URGENT! DEAF! SPAYED, ALL VACCINES. 1 year old, 40lbs. We really aren’t sure what mixture of breeds Gia is…. Terrier ears, long wispy hair, medium sized, she is any body’s guess.  Gia is special needs by being deaf and needs an owner who understands how to work with deaf dogs.   She has completed the Puppies 4 Parole program and knows basic hand commands.  She is very sweet but we are being told no small children who can possible “sneak up” on her and startle her.  She is spayed and current on rabies, DHPP and Bordetella. She will be heartworm tested prior to transport. She is good with other dogs.

Betty Domestic Short Hair SENIOR FemaleSPAYED, FIV/LEUK NEG, HAS ALL VACCINES. 10 years old. Betty was surrendered because her owner passed away and no one in the family wanted to take her.  She is super sweet, would make a great lap cat and loves to chatter with you all day long. She would make someone who is lonely a wonderful companion. 

Abbey Domestic Short Hair Older Adult Female URGENT! SPAYED,  FIV/LEUK NEG, ALL VACCINES. 8.5 years old. Abbey was an owner surrender when her owner went to a nursing home and no one in the family wanted her. She needs to either be an only cat or in a home with older cats that will not bother her and no dogs.  She is very slow to warm up and will most likely hide for several weeks in a new home, but once she gets comfortable she will become quite sociable.  She is spayed, FIV/Leuk tested negative and current on rabies and FVRCP.

NO UPDATE...Kisses American Staffordshire Terrier Adult Female URGENT! SPAYED, HW NEG, ALL VACCINES. 5.5 years old, very petite Kisses is a TOTAL SWEETHEART!!!  She was surrendered for not getting along with the other dog in the house.  We have had her with large dogs and small dogs and all she needs is to be taught some manners and guidelines. In all of our dog interactions with her she seems to have a ball playing with other dogs. She can play too rough for small dogs so may do better in a home with a dog similar or larger in size.  She had no problem keeping up with a 11 month old puppy either.   She is very people focused and absolutely LOVES KIDS!!!  She responds well to correction as she wants to please.  With the right owners she can be in home with other dogs but they will need to continue to work with her that sharing attention is ok.  There is no issue with food or toys.   She is spayed, heartworm tested negative, current on rabies, DHPPL and Bordetella.  She is only about 40 – 45 lbs and could stand to lose a few pounds.
NO UPDATE...Cindy Sue Rat Terrier SENIOR  Female URGENT! SPAYED, HW NEG, ALL VACCINES.  13 years old. Cindy Sue’s owner passed away and she had no one to take her in.  She is very sweet, good with dogs, cats and kids.    At 13 yrs of age she has the typical old age stuff like cataracts and fatty deposits but she is still full of spunk and let her off a leash and she will run like a bat out of you know what!    She is spayed, heartworm tested negative and current on rabies, DHPP and Bordetella.
NO UPDATE...Clover Lab/Collie Mix? Young Female URGENT! HW NEG, ALL VACCINES. 1 year old, 30lbs. Clover was an owner surrender as they stated they didn’t have time for her.  She is super sweet and good with dogs and kids. She has not been cat tested.  The owner said Lab/Border Collie blend but aren’t really sure on that as she is super tiny and pretty much full grow. She is not spayed but is heartworm tested negative and current on rabies, DHPPL and Bordetella.

NO UPDATE...Oreo & Snickers Domestic Short Hair Young Females URGENT! 4 months old. Mother is Reeses who tested negative for FIV/Leuk, 1 FVRCP,  Both are very friendly, playful and easily handled. 

NO UPDATE...Sassee Domestic Short Hair Adult Female URGENT!  FIV/LEUK NEG, SPAYED, ALL VACCINES. 5 years old. Sassee was an owner surrender with 4 other cats and 3 dogs due to her owner going to assisted living.  She is very friendly to the point that she won’t stop head bumping you until you pet her.  She wants to play with other cats and plays with toys like a kitten.  She is spayed, FIV/Leuk tested negative and current on rabies and FVRCP.

Marge Mountain Cur Mix Young Female - LONGER TIMER! Marge was dropped off on Renfro Creek Rd. She is a sweet girl, but she is a little shy. Marge would make a wonderful pet for anyone that would spend some time with her and gain her trust. She is only around 1 year old.

Thelma Mountain Cur Mix Adult Female - Thelma was dropped out in the Providence Church area. She is super sweet and loves everyone. Thelma appears to be around 2-3 years old and would make a great family pet.

Bodie Great Pyrenees Mix Large Adult Male - 2 years old. Bodie came to us after his owners had moved away and left him behind. Bodie is a very large boy, but he is a gentle giant.

Jenny Treeing Walker Coonhound Female - Very gentle. Jenny is a very well mannered girl who loves everyone and does exceptional on a leash. Hounds are often looked over because society thinks that all they do is howl which is the furthest from the truth.
  Hazel Beagle/Jack Russell Terrier Mix - Stray. Desperately seeking a new home. Hazel is about 1 year old and she is very submissive. She is slightly scared of a lot of excitement and she would do really well as an only dog.
