Ranier

Meet … Ranier!

What are people thinking???  Dropped off at the shelter as a senior!   Unbelievable!  I'm a good boy and I have the typical appeal that all deserving dogs have ... soft fur, sweet eyes, irresistible ears and because of my unfortunate present state, some very insecure behavior :). Hey, you may as well know it up front ... I'm nervous and concerned for my future.  In fact, at this point I lack a bit of confidence. You see ... I was once in a house and use to a couch.  No middle aged or senior dog should have to find themselves in a shelter in their golden days.

Did you know that approximately 25% of all dogs and puppies in a shelter will be purebred or of a designer breed.  Designer breeds are two desirable breeds that are mated for the sole purpose of producing highly-salable puppies for profit.  Yep ... crazy isn't it!  People purchase pets and then, often, loose their commitment to be a pet parent.  This is not uncommon in higher socioeconomic situations where the larger sum of money to purchase the pet wasn't a factor and pets are viewed as disposable. And, there are sometimes when these pets are in a shelter because they have wandered away from home and have never been reclaimed by their owner or were surrendered by their owner.  Whatever the reason, it is important to know that you can find an amazing selection of deserving, orphaned dogs at Summit County Animal Control.  Because they are always so exceptional, they won't be here long! Don't delay ... let's get these deserving dogs in a home today!  Thank you, photographer, Olivia Mandala, for capturing their cuteness!

Note:  Please keep in mind that all adoptable pets need time to decompress once they enter a home.  For some it will happen quickly and for others it might take a few weeks.  You'll want to be understanding of what they have been through and their level of insecurity.  We ask that you treat all of them as if they were an 8 week old puppy.  Assume they know nothing and begin at step one.  You'll soon know what they are capable of and what behaviors you will need to kindly work on with your new family member.  It's called commitment!  And, that's what these pets want more than anything!

Woody

We have another gentle dog  in need of a home.  Woody is just PERFECT!  What an agreeable boy he is.  Weighing in at about 36 pounds this boy is considered to be medium in size but on the smaller side of medium.  Middle-aged and senior dogs are the best!  They know their manners and they are use to a house and a couch.  They’re through the pesky stage and they just want to please.  Don’t delay … let’s get Woody his home for the holidays!

Note: Please keep in mind that all adoptable pets need time to decompress once they enter a home. For some it will happen quickly and for others it might take a few weeks. You'll want to be understanding of what they have been through and their level of insecurity. We ask that you treat all of them as if they were an 8 week old puppy. Assume they know nothing and begin at step one. You'll soon know what they are capable of and what behaviors you will need to "kindly" work on with your new family member. It's called commitment! And, that's what these pets want more than anything!

Zachary

Meet Zachary! We have Zachary down as a terrier mix, but truth is he is a lot of different things! Who really knows? And better yet, who really cares?! This boy will love you with all his heart! He is a young adult, so he's mature but has a good amount of energy to keep life interesting! Are you interested in this small, mixed-breed boy? Don't delay... he won't be there for long!

Kimberly

Meet Kimberly …  I'm a good girl and I have the typical appeal that all deserving dogs have ... soft fur, sweet eyes, irresistible ears and because of my “recent” unfortunate past, some needy behaviors :). Hey, you may as well know it up front ... I'm nervous and concerned for my future.  In fact, at this point I lack a bit of confidence. You see ... I was once in a house and use to a couch.  No middle aged or senior dog should have to find themselves in a shelter in their golden days.  My kindness and calm personality will make me a wonderful addition to your quiet home!

AUDIO: Know Your Candidate Todd McKenney

Todd McKenney Candidate For Common Pleas Court Judge, spoke with WAKR's Ray Horner in the Know Your Candidate segment.

He will be running against Jon Oldham for the open seat.

He feels he would be the person to fill that seat because of his experience as a lawyer and his work at the Chapel, helping people get away from a life of crime and on the right path.
