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.

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!

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!
