Posey County Pound Puppies Need People

Chance and Kya are among 65 adorable, adoptable dogs at the Posey County Animal Control Shelter. The shelter is located in a rural area ten miles from the nearest town and not opened to the public. Fortunately, volunteers from PC Pound Puppies, a Best Friends No More Homeless Pets Network partner, bring some dogs to adoption events every weekend. But it’s not possible to take all of them to these events. So the dogs’ friends are reaching out to Best Friends members in Indiana to ask for your help spreading the word and finding homes!

Meet Chance and Kya, two of many great, available dogs. Both graduated from the “Death Row Dogs” training program at Green River Correctional Facility in Kentucky. During the three-month program, they learned manners, obedience and basic commands. They’re also both housetrained, spayed/neutered, up-to-date on their shots, microchipped, and heartworm negative. To help these two cuties get out of the shelter and into homes soon, their adoption fees will be waived!

Voted “Class Clown” by trainers, Chance is a handsome mixed breed, possibly with pit bull-terrier and Dalmatian in his heritage. In excellent health, he’s a special-needs dog because he was born deaf. This smart boy responds to hand signals. He loves playing with sturdy chew toys and taking walks wearing a Gentle Leader head collar. Chance is two to three years old and weighs 50 pounds. He needs someone who will continue his training, give him plenty of exercise, and let him be their best friend. Chance prefers a home without cats, and needs to meet any potential doggy siblings prior to adoption to be sure they’re a good match. He likes other dogs, but sometimes plays rough and doesn’t always pick up on their signals to back off.

Kya is a big, beautiful, healthy, one-year-old Shepherd-mix girl. She passed her Canine Good Citizenship test with flying collars. Playful Kya loves everybody, including all other animals. She can’t wait to get out of the shelter and find somebody special to love. Still a puppy at heart, she’d benefit from additional training. Kya’s smile will brighten your day, every day for years to come.

You’re also invited to visit the PC Pound Puppies website to see photos and descriptions of other adorable, adoptable dogs. Or, stop by the Pet Food Center North on First Avenue in Evansville, Indiana any Sunday from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. to meet some of the dogs in person. You can also get updates by visiting PC Pound Puppies on Facebook.
