I came to the shelter on 8/7/2016 and I will be ready for adoption on 8/14/2016 if I am not reclaimed. I weigh 52 pounds. The volunteers are getting to know me, so check back for updates! UPDATE 8/17/2016: The vet says I am 4 years old and heartworm negative. I am neutered too!

Apollo is a beautiful bird dog-hound mix who was brought to the shelter after he wandered up into a young man’s yard one evening. This particular young man adopted a pup from us in the past, and knew we would take good care of him, so he brought him to us the next morning.  Apollo was posted as found on our page, but his people never came forward for him in the allotted time, so he is now available for adoption. Apollo is now up to date on all of his vaccinations, neutered and healthy in every way. He did have quite the case of ear mites, but we are medicating and those pests will be gone in no time flat.
Apollo is long and lean and very graceful.  He prances when he walks and has the prettiest moves. Maybe a ballet dancer in a previous life?  He loves attention and is very gentle. Although we weighs 52 pounds, he thinks he is a lap dog. He is neat in his kennel and loves a bath and car rides.

UPDATE 9/17/2016:Wow! This is one awesome pup. We have gotten even better acquainted with Apollo since our first post. Letting him loose to run and play in the exercise pen is a thing of beauty to behold. He loves to play ball and is great at playing pitch and catch with himself if you are slow to get the game going. He can very quickly can get in a mellow, snuggle mood when he rolls over for a belly rub. He seeks human affection and has no mean bones in his beautiful speckled bod

About Wabash County Animal Shelter

About Our Shelter...

WHO WE ARE...The Wabash County Animal Shelter Buddies (WCASB) is a small group on volunteers who help coordinate adoption of dogs and cats from the Wabash County Animal Shelter. Our mission is to: Increase the number of pet adoptions/rescues from the county animal shelter, to provide a clean, safe, and friendly living environment to animals during their stay at the county shelter, educate the public about pet overpopulation and the importance of spay/neuter practices, and to promote awareness on the benefits of adopting a shelter pet. While the shelter buddies strive to ensure that each admitted animal receives a home, space is EXTREMELY LIMITED at our facility, and animals are still euthanized as open kennels run out. The shelter is in desperate need of loving foster homes...if you are interested in being a foster please email our shelter for details. Providing foster care for an animal ensures it will likely be adopted and spared from euthanasia. Keep in mind, the WCASB efforts are funded entirely by donations, and 100% of funds raised are used to care for these wonderful animals. Donations towards the WCASB vet expenses may also be sent directly to the Mount Carmel Animal Hospital.

Our Adoption Process...

All prospective adoptors are required to fill out an Adoption Screening Form (which asks for a vet reference). Once the screening form is evaluated and approved by the WCASB, the adopting owner pays a $14 fee to Wabash County and an additional fee (varies per animal) to the WCASB. The additional fee helps the WCASB volunteers pay for medical exams, tests, vaccinations, spay/neuters, heartworm/flea prevention, food, etc. Upon adoption, a legally-binding contract from Wabash County must be signed. This contract declares the adoptor as owner of the new pet, and mandates the animal receive proper care, annual vaccinations/vet care, and spay/neuter (if not already altered) of the pet by the adoptor. Violation of the contract will result in reclamation of the animal by Wabash County Animal Control. Furthermore, the Wabash County Animal Control Officer reserves the right to deny any adoption of a shelter animal.
