Pet of The Week

5/3/21 - Pansy & Rose


Tri-paw Alert! Meet Pansy...she is no wilting flower!

"I came to the shelter with a badly broken rear leg that needed immediate attention. Even with the pain I was in, I was so thankful for the help that I purred loudly and made biscuits on the kind officer that brought me in.

The staff was determined to save my life. Surgery was scheduled and the vet carefully removed the shattered pieces of my leg. When the incision was made for my spay, it became evident that I also had a terrible infection in my uterus.

With gentle care and and lots of love, I'm happy to say that I'm now ready to find my new forever home where I never have to worry about being in such danger ever again.

Please come meet me and see how sweet and amazing I am!"

Rose is 9-years-old and was found stray in the cold of winter last December. She was very shy for the first couple months at the shelter, but suddenly she has sprung out of her shell and will greet you when you walk into her room. She may have to assess you from afar for a few minutes before deciding to let you pet her, then she will shower you in affection!

4/26/21 - Carmela


Carmela is a very sweet and outgoing 2-1/2-year-old Shar Pei/Terrier Mix. She is athletic and can go over 6 ft fences when left to her own device. She is very smart and willing to learn. In her past life no one has taken the time to work with her on basic manners and leash skills, but she is a very eager student. A training class, some great treats and patience would create a great bonding experience with her and her new family.


She needs an active family that will devote time to her to keep her busy. In return she is a very loving girl that loves to spend time being petted. Visit the Elkhart Humane Society website to fill out an application, meet Carmela or her other friends waiting on homes.

4/29/21 - BONUS PET - Lil Molly


Lil Molly is one of the longest residents at the St. Joe County Animal shelter. She came from a hoarding case, and took a long time to come out of her shell, and she is still working on it. She may be shy, but this beautiful girl has the kindest heart, and is so gentle. She won't come out and seek attention, but she LOVES getting attention. If you take the time to sit with her and scratch behind her ears, she will start purring and will close her eyes while she makes biscuits with her paws.

3/29/21 - Sally


This big, beautiful, 5-year-old gal was found stray in early February. The staff at the humane society could not believe it when nobody came looking for her.
She is a constant ray of sunshine to their staff. Her goofy antics makes them giggle constantly, and her smile lights up any room she walks into. She loves playing outside, and rolling around in the grass. She adores going for walks and would make an excellent exercise buddy! She wants to be an only fur-child so she can have all the belly-scratches to herself! She can't wait to find a family who will spoil her rotten.

3/22/21 - Buddy & Bowie

Meet Buddy, he is 2 years old and a return adoption. No fault of his own, his former owner developed allergies and was unable to care for him anymore.

He is described as very active, playful and lap loving=??? and loves car rides, runs, walks, toys. He is not found of being left alone and off lead walks.

Adoption fee is $170 --



Hi, I'm Bowie!
I'm about 8-years-old, but don't think that stops me from playing! I absolutely LOVE toys and playing fetch. I'd be the bestest summer buddy you could ask for. Just imagine playing in the back yard with me, under the bright blue sky, my ears flapping in the breeze as I trot after a tennis ball.
The cool thing about older dogs like me is, a lot of times, we have already learned a lot! For example, I already know how to sit, shake and lay down! Pretty neat, eh?
My previous owners surrendered me because they were moving and couldn't take me with, so I'm really in search of a home where I know I can settle in and stay forever.
