About Us

We are a small group of volunteers that wanted to do something to help our furry friends in Adams County Ohio. We started transporting dogs from the Adams County Dog Pound to Veterinary Hospitals and to Rescues. It's really been a rewarding experience to help these dogs, and now cats, get a second chance to have a good life in a loving home. You can follow us on Facebook and check out what we are doing and what we have accomplished!


We also are happy to announce that we have a FB page for our rescue efforts in Adams County Ohio. We do our best to keep it updated. Check us out on ACORN Adams County Ohio Rescue Network.

All monetary proceeds will go to Lickety Split Pet Transport courtesy of Michele Kammer. Michele has been an advocate for saving dogs and pups from the Adams County Ohio Dog Pound for several years. She knows LSPT works hard to pull the dogs from the pound, transport them to the vet, keep them in boarding, and get them to their rescue.

Lickety Split Pet Transport has been helping rescue, pull, hold, and transport the dogs and puppies of Adams County Ohio for a year now! LSPT was founded by Melva Jo Kimball and Edward Kimball of Adams County Ohio. We also do most of the posting on the Humane Society of Adams County FB page, posting all of the dogs in need of good homes. We are in constant need of cleaning supplies, vaccines, dog and puppy food, and gas money.

We are a small non-profit group in a very rural area. We love our furry friends and want to help them get the best care and find their furever homes! We work with the Adams County Ohio Dog Pound and the Humane Society of Adams County Ohio. Our primary focus is to get dogs from Adams County Ohio into rescue so they can find their furever homes. We network with other transporters and are willing to help other counties and states get pets to rescue.

Scentsy began with a simple idea — a safe, wickless alternative to scented candles — and quickly grew into one of the most successful direct selling companies in the world. This wickless concept is simply decorative ceramic warmers designed to melt scented wax with the heat of a light bulb instead of a traditional wick and flame.

I first met Wes when he came to the Adams County Ohio Dog Pound a month ago. He was brought to the pound by the warden who had a call to go pick him up in the country. The people said he had wandered into their yard. Wes was in bad shape upon arrival. He was as blind as a bat and thin because he couldn't find food. We have no idea how long he had been wandering around on his own. He was wobbly on his feet, too. He was put in a large pen off to himself away from the rest of the dogs, so he could have a little peace while adjusting to his new surroundings. He was given a soft bed, fresh clean water, and stinky canned dog food, so he could easily find it. 

After a couple of weeks, he was doing better and was less nervous about his surroundings and was gaining some strength. Many people showed compassion for Wes by helping him find a good rescue or adopter. Folks even tried to find a nice sanctuary for him to live out the rest of his days. Nobody had room for Wes!

Then something wonderful happened! A couple of very nice ladies who had helped with getting another Adams County Pound dog safely to his rescue in Michigan, wanted to help Wess! Sandra wanted to foster him in her home, but she needed a rescue to sponsor her. Gaye started pounding the keyboard and made phone calls and found a good rescue that would take Wes. Last Day Dog Rescue has saved many shelter dogs in need! So, now we had a rescue and foster for Wes. All I had to do now, was go to the pound and pull him and take him to the vet for an assessment, shots, and a health certificate. My husband Ed did this for me since I was working that day. Our plan was to get him ready on Tuesday and take him to meet his transport on Thursday.

That plan started falling apart! Our Country Vet is a very smart caring lady, who just happens to love Australian Cattle Dogs. Once she saw Wes, she knew he was older than 8 yrs, which was the age in his bio. She guessed him to be more around 12 or 13. He was very blind and had been for years. He suffered from diabetes and cataracts. The pressure behind his eyes was very painful. Jenny did a heart worm test on Wes, next. His results confirmed what she suspected. He was in the final stages of heartworm disease. This was also contributing to his imbalance when he walked. She advised that due to Wes's age and health condition, he would not survive the necessary treatment and surgeries needed! We were all devastated!

Ed brought Wes to our home where we made him a nice comfortable bed and gave him fresh clean water and more of his favorite stinky canned dog food. All of us involved with rescuing Wes from the pound took our time to discuss our options. We came to the very hard decision to let Wes go to sleep and not suffer anymore. On Friday morning at 8:35 am 8-17-2012, while I held Wes and hugged him one last time, with tears in my eyes, Wes slowly went to sleep and his life faded away.

Gaye had worked so hard to find Wes a nice place to live in Michigan. She feels that the right thing to do by Wes, is to let him complete his journey. She is having Wes cremated and his ashes sent to her home in Michigan. Our Crazy Michigan Dog Lady has a heart of gold!!!

If anyone would like to help with the cremation expenses, please contact Gay Pierce @  ody-burgle@comcast.net 


Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

Champ is an unaltered adult male Plott Hound: approx weight 70 lb approx age 3 yrs.

Champ was left at the Adams County pound, tied to a trailer. He looked as if he had been hit by a car, with road rash on his face and body. Luckily, he had no broken bones, but he did suffer damage to his teeth.
He is out of the pound now and living with a foster. He is seeing the vet this week for neutering, and dental work.
Please donate to Champ's ChipIn! Small amounts add up fast! Thanks!

Mulberry Street Dogs Of Adams County Ohio Need Help!!!

Here's the story and description of the Mulberry Street dogs in West Union, Ohio: Adams County.

                                   Awful House Outside

On a quiet street in a small town in the poorest county in Ohio, there sits an abandoned house, covered in vines, barely visible to passersby.  The house is rotten and crumbling.  Boards hold up the front door.  Carpet covers the openings where windows had been.  The floors are made of bare dirt.  Inside the house, eight loving dogs are living alone, abandoned when their owner was sentenced to fifteen years in jail for a crime he committed twenty years ago.  Despite the criminal past of the owner, the dogs were loved.  All but one have been spayed or neutered.  They have collars with current licenses, and are being fed and watered by kind-hearted neighbors.  Some of the dogs are shy and wary, some are quiet, some are boisterous and jolly, but all are desperate for human attention. Each would make a wonderful pet if given the chance.  Any help finding these dogs loving homes or safe shelter with a rescue would be GREATLY appreciated.  Thank you!

Please contact:
Christine Troutman: Humane Society of Adams County Officer

                                    Awful House Inside

Bear: Bulldog/Bird Dog mix.  Male/Neutered. Shy,  but loving once he warms up.
Boogie: Australian Shepherd Mix. Male/Neutered. Black, fluffy coat, with white chest and paws.  Playful.

Bud: Black Terrier/Chow Mix. Female/Spayed.  Has an eye injury, needs veterinary attention immediately.  Friendly girl.  

Hummer: Pekinese Mix. Neutered. Brown coat.  "Little brown dust mop" appearance (Very cute).  Active lap dog.

Missy: Collie Mix. Female/Spayed. Black and white coat. Senior.  Has a skin condition (missing some fur), but could be simple flea bite dermatitis.

Molly: Pomeranian. Female/Spayed. Approx. 4 years old.  Too shy to get a photo, so we took a photo of the tiny hole under the foundation that she lives in.
                                       Molly's Hole

Sammy: Border Collie Mix. Female/Not spayed. Senior.  Has tumor on her belly and limps.  

Shy Girl: Black Collie Mix, Female/Spayed. Pictured next to the person. along with Sammy, Missy, and Bug.

 Two more pictures of Missy and her skin condition.

Lickety Split Pet Transport got our 3 precious pups, (Tucker, Tilly, and Gee Gee) from the pound to Grove City, so they could get on a special transport to PA. This transport was set up just for them. Now, they can be fully vetted and get the training they need so they can find their forever homes. While they wait, they can run in the grass and play! I love happy endings!!!
On a side note, LSPT had last minute car trouble and work schedule conflicts, but still managed to do this transport. They will be asking for more transport help in the future to get our Adams County dogs to safety. Please consider donating your time and gas to help us. We will post for more help soon.
Also, if anyone can donate a good running van to the HSAC (501C3), please contact Christine Troutman. mountjoyfarm1@frontier.com With a van donation, either from an individual or company, more dogs can get to vet clinics and rescues. The value of the van can be written off your taxes. Once we have a van, then we will need volunteer drivers and gas card donations to the HSAC. Thanks!

Top to bottom: Tucker, Tilly, and Gee Gee.

The Adams County Puppy Project in Ohio

The Adams County Puppy Project in Ohio: litters of pups and their mommas or abandoned pups, or ultra pregnant dogs, don't go into the pound. They go to the HS farm. They get loved and cared for, get wormed and vaccinated, and fed high quality puppy food. When they are old enough for rescue/adoption, they get posted. We have lots of approved rescues wanting healthy puppies. Lots of times, these rescues have the pups spayed/neutered at the Rascal Unit clinics that come to Adams every month or we get our local vet to do it, before they get transported. Or, the rescues S/N the pups upon arrival. These puppies and mommas would most likely get sick if they were at the pound. Most of the mommas get rescued with their pups. Most of the pups have all gone to rescue and there is room for more at the farm. There have been as many as 50! The HS also works with other shelters and takes in puppies. The Humane Society does not make a profit from the puppies. They have donations and grants that cover most expenses. Rescues often reimburse for vetting, too. We give the puppies and mommas the best chance for having a happy life. We are interested in helping your puppies!
To see the puppies and mommas we have available for rescue/adoption, please look at our album on FB.

 Please read this article about our new Humane Society shelter, and then watch the video. You will understand how much work and how long we have waited to make this dream come true! Thanks to everyone for your support!

Dogs will have another shelter in Adams County as well as the continued protection by the Adams County Dog Warden Paul Hughes, according to Adams County Humane Society reports. The new facility will also take cats, once it is operational this summer.

Wednesday, April 4, 2012


I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE AN ANNOUNCEMENT. LSPT will NOT transport to an unapproved rescue or use an unapproved transport. Anyone interested in helping us rescue dogs from Adams County has to be approved by our Humane Officer, Christine Troutman. You can be preapproved by sending all of your info to mountjoyfarm1@frontier.com Our main goal is the safety of our dogs and pups! We want them to be loved and cared for while they wait for their new forever home!
Thank You!

Transporting is fun!

We always have fun doing transports! Don't get me wrong, it's work, too! Those crates must be cleaned and bleached between transports! We don't want to spread any sickness! The dogs and puppies we transport mostly come from the Adams County Dog Pound or from the Humane Society farm. Occasionally, we help other shelters. Also, transporting is not a clean job! None of our pound dogs or farm puppies have had baths! Our pound, even though the kennels do get cleaned daily, is old! The dogs get stinky! Picking up puppies from the farm, as I've talked about before, is a dirty job, especially on rainy days! But, you know what? I love getting dirty! I dress very casual. I'm ready to pick up and carry and hug all of my puppies! I wear boots to walk in the mud and puppy poo. I have plenty of paper towels, newspapers, bleach, and Lysol to clean up the pups and their crates during and after transports when they have accidents or get sick! I have plastic grocery bags and trash bags on board so I can throw the mess away at the gas stations. I have hand sanitizer to always use after cleaning or between handling puppies. Bonus rewards are playing with the puppies! I love all of the hugs and kisses I get! We overnight often, so we can get our pups on their way the next day. It's a pleasure to have them as our guests! We have helped save so many lives by transporting to vet clinics and to rescues. The puppies need to be vetted before they can travel, in most cases, or the receiving rescue takes care of the vetting upon arrival. All pups are spayed/neutered before adoption! The puppies are then put in foster homes or are boarded until the perfect home can be found for them! We often get pics of our pups from rescues and from adopters to keep us updated on how well our pups are doing! That always puts a big smile on my face! I try to post as many as I can, but sometimes I don't have all of the pics to post! Most of our transports to rescues are to the city, because we are so rural. We go to Cincinnati, Dayton, and Columbus. We go on longer transports occasionally. We love to try new restaurants after we deliver the pups. This is another added bonus!

Transporting is volunteer work for us! We can always use help, though! Anyone wishing to help us do transports or help us with gas and cleaning supply costs can contact us at lspt1123@gmail.com

We had so much fun with these two sweet puppies we kept overnight! They had fun on our front porch and in the yard. Cici, our boxer was their Nanny. It's so much fun watching her with them!

The Humane Society of Adams County Ohio Needs A New Van!!!

The Humane Society of Adams County Ohio needs a van for transport and our clinic events. Our old van has approx. 250k miles on it. The driver's side door doesn't stay shut unless it is tied to the seat. There is no heat or air. The rear door latch no longer latches. The driver's seat belt is broken, and the list goes on and on! This van has transported hundreds and hundreds of dogs to safety and vet appts. We are lost without the use of this van! We aren't looking for fancy or new, just reliable and safe. We are a 501C3 and this could be a great tax deduction for someone out there. 
Please consider donating a van to the Humane Society of Adams County Ohio! Thanks!

Contact Christine Troutman: Humane Society of Adams County Officer.
Call: 937-587-5452

This picture is from a mobile low cost vet clinic, Rascal Unit, that comes to Adams County each month. The van is loaded to the max with dogs and puppies needing vetted. This is Christine's dog Steeler, an Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog, posing in the driver's seat! He is a star! He was on Animal Planet!

On this cold rainy Tuesday afternoon, I will tell you the story of my old '95 Volvo 850. We have been lucky to find and buy several cars and trucks on eBay. We drove to Pittsburgh and picked up this nice Volvo from the chef of the Harris Grill. I might add that the Rita Hayworth and the Pork Shank Redemption was exceptionally good!!! 

It's been a real good reliable car for our family. Of course, things do happen to cars that are used a lot! This picture will show you when I hit a deer on my way home from work one very foggy morning. You can see that the only damage was to the headlight! Old Volvos are like tanks, so stay out of the way, Bambi!!! I had no warning and couldn't avoid missing this poor deer!  Headlight fixed....check!

You can also see that I have a personalized license plate. It's a memorial to a couple of dear friends, Chris and Jody Bloomfield, who were killed in a car crash. We met them while we were roadies for a local metal band, Crowning Apathy. Chris played bass and Jody was a nurse. Chris started calling me Toast and soon that's what everyone called me! We helped put on an all day metal concert/benefit for Chris and Jody's 11 year old daughter. Most of us camped all night since we had a bit too much to drink. While sitting around the campfire, Thomas said I got "toasted" on the 1+ pitchers of margaritas, and laughed because my husband's name is Ed. So, we became Toast_Ed! That license plate name was already taken, so I settled for a backwards E. 

Now, that we are transporting our furry friends, we have come to rely on the old Volvo more and more, especially since our SUV is in the shop. We keep adding brake fluid and power steering fluid to keep it on the road. Then of course, the exhaust system came apart, and we had to hurry to get that fixed. The noise was deafening! Exhaust fixed....check! Now, we're waiting for a new windshield wiper motor. It decided to stop working last week, so now we can't drive in the rain or snow! UGH! 
UPDATE: Windshield wiper motor replaced and brake lines bled.....check!!!
UPDATE:2/18/2012 We got some good used parts for the Volvo. We got a rack and pinion for the steering problem and a master cylinder for the brake problem. Those are scheduled to be put on at the shop today. On the way to work this morning, we had a flat tire! So, we need tires!
UPDATE: Steering fixed....check! I forgot what good power steering was like! LOL Front tire replaced.....check!!!

Our Acura MDX is back at our local garage with the engine in pieces! We sent it to a dealer in Cincinnati to have the computer processor checked out and replaced, and the stupid mechanic stripped out a spark plug and damaged our engine. The dealership won't own up to damaging our Acura! Now, we need another engine! 

Oh how I would love to get all of our cars fixed! Even better yet, would be a nice van donation, so we can transport more of our furry friends safely!!

I'm very serious! Does anyone have a good used van to donate to us? We're going to try to win one with the Toyota give away. I don't know how our chances of winning will be. We're looking into it. In the mean time, we would love to hear from anyone with a generous soul and love for helping animals to contact us and give generously. We've had to turn down so many transports recently and we just want to get back on the road again! 
You can send us an email: lspt1123@gmail.com
Thanks For Everything!!!
