More Pets Who Need Homes     Last updated  2022-12-08

"Nonny" mountain cur
4-5 yrs   female

AT THE SCOTT COUNTY ANIMAL SHELTER..This dog spots a cat and it's all over. She is obsessed with them so must be in a household with no cats and probably no small furry critters due to her high prey drive. Pretty skinny so needs some good old fashioned vittles in her belly! Imagine she's been on the run a good while.

"Jack" aussie mix
4-4 1/2 months   male

Owner surrender. Daughter pregnant and could no longer care for the pup. What a sweet boy! Contact

"LeRoy" Collie Mix
2-3 yrs   male

AT THE SCOTT COUNTY ANIMAL SHELTER...found near the bottoms with burs and mats. Other than that, he seems in good shape. Social. No tags and not microchipped but feel sure there is an owner out there.

"Winni" terrier/jack mix
4 months   female

Loves everyone and loves to play but not a crazy wild child! Pretty well housebroken and good in a crate! Will make a great companion for someone! Contact

"Bestie" staffordshire/lab mix
8 months   male

AT THE SCOTT COUNTY ANIMAL SHELTER...He is just the "best" boy! Wife brought dog home to be part of the family but husband explained they already had 2 dogs and didn't need more! So, Bestie is at the shelter to find a new family!

"Zena" pit lab mix
1 yr   female

AT THE SCOTT COUNTY ANIMAL SHELTER...surrendered. Owner can't afford so hoping the dog will get a chance for a better future.

Roosevelt is rockin a new haircut. He is a long hair . He is neutered, rabies, wormed, flea treated, vaccinations and is negative for feline aids and feline leukemia. Roosevelt would do better as an only child. Contact Sue at 812 820 1680 or

5 yrs   male

Turned in by owner when there were some "chicken" issues. For the safety of the dog, he was turned in to the shelter to be safe from unhappy neighbors. He is a big boy but walks relatively good on a leash and is supposed to be housebroken although we aren't seeing that! Loves people!!! HEARTWORM POSITIVE. Contact

"Lilgirl" Labrador
1-2 yrs   female

turned in by owner and this poor girl is totally shut down! Working with her to give her TLC so she can realize it's going to be ok. Seems in excellent physical shape. Appears housebroken. Contact

"Oliver" beagle
5-6 yrs   neutered male

One of those fat, friendly, rolypoly beagles that just wiggle all over. This boy deserved more than a life on a tangled up short chain! Very quiet and very seldom barks! He is being treated for heartworm today thanks to those of you who helped financially for the treatment! Once the treatment is completed, he will have a few weeks of rest and recouperation and then ready to go to a new home! Contact

"Diamond" beagle/terrier mix
3-4 yrs   neutered male

Diamond is turning out to be a very nice young man!! He hasn't had a lot of positive reinforcement in his life so far. Pretty obvious that his owner really didn't care much about him so he spent a lot of time outside with whateever affection came his way. He was adopted out but we have now learned that he can climb over a chain link fence so will need a tall fence or underground fence. He just wants someone to care about him and he adores anyone who pays attention. Great size only about 35#. Contact

7 months   Female

Blair is our little Russian Blue mix. She was just recently spayed and is ready to be adopted by you. Contact Sue at 812 820 1680 or

6 months   Female

Rosie is a dark tabby and will make a great pet for you. She is playful and loving. Contact Sue at 812 820 1680 or

"Spooky" border collie mix
10-12 months   neutered male

Spooky has accomplished so much in the last 5 months since he has been in our foster program. He was timid and shy but now trusts people and will come to be petted. He is still somewhat unsure and he will probably always have some hesitancy but he has absolutely blossomed more than we had ever hoped. Spooky is ready for a home of his own with a gentle loving family. He would be best with another dog friend that he can gain more confidence from. We are so proud of Spooky and encourage you to really consider making him part of your family! Contact

"Jubilee" pit bull
4-5 yrs   spayed female

JUBILEE IS IN OBEDIENCE TRAINING AND DOING WONDERFUL!!!!!JUBILEE HAS BEEN WAITING FOR HER FOREVER HOME FOR 8 MONTHS....242 DAYS AS OF OCTOBER 1! That's a long time to be homeless. Foster home gives her love but it's not the same as a real home that is hers everyday forever. Jubilee adores people and does the wiggle butt thing whenever she gets excited and she gets excited whenever a human shows her attention. After she gets that out of her system, she is a couch potato who is just happy to be by your side. Jubilee is perfectly housebroken and crate trained and quiet all night long. She loves to take long walks and is great on a leash. She is a stout 55 pounds or so but even so, she can climb a chain link fence with the greatest of ease if she sees a person walking down the road and wants to say "hello". With that being said, it would be well for her to have a taller fence or she would do well as an apartment or condo dog as long as the new family is aware of her energy and willing to go for those necessary walks a couple times a day. Jubilee seems friendly with most dogs but every now and then, a dog will rub her the wrong way and she just doesn't care for them! You would need to do a preliminary meet/greet if you have other fur buddies in your house. Cats are probably a no-no too. It doesn't seem fair that a nice dog like this is having such a hard time finding a home! Please Help Jubilee! Contact

"Dex" lab pointer mix
1 yr   neutered male

PENDING ADOPTION! Dex is a good sized boy, about 60 pounds, but sure is a sweet one! Good with people and seems great with dogs as well. A little strong on a leash but doesn't jump up on you real bad! A good all around dog!!! Contact

""Venus" husky mix
1 yr   spayed female

Venus, a one yr old spayed husky mix, has those gorgeous blue eyes that are always associated with the husky breed. She is strong and active but and is learning about a leash. Foster home thinks she would make a good housedog if she had plenty of chance to get her energy out! Loves her people!!! Crates well. Will go over fences. Contact
