Johnson County, IN - URGENT Dogs!

Today I received an e-mail from a Dream 4 Pets member, who'd been contacted by a worker at the Johnson County Animal Control facility in Franklin, IN.  Here's what that worker had to say:

"My name is Megan & I work for Johnson County Animal Control in Franklin, IN. I’m writing you regarding animals that we have here at our facility. Unfortunately, we are having an outbreak of kennel cough at our facility. In this facility, we try our best to treat it and get the animals healthy again. But, right now it is going out on control. We are trying our best to get as many out as possible so we do not have to euthanize our whole kennel. Below are the ones that are most urgent. If you can help, please contact me as soon as possible."

Here are the dogs she mentioned:

Mr. Honey is a Collie/Chow Chow mix - here's what the shelter staff had to say about him: "Mr. Honey came to the shelter as a stray. He is around 8 years young. It is hard to believe that someone would let this guy go. He is just as sweet as can be. Mr. Honey loves for you to pet his head and give him any sort of attention. And in return, he will give you sweet licks. Mr. Honey is very laid back. You can tell that someone loved this guy at some point. He is definitely ready to break out of here and find a new family that will never let him go. If you think you can give Mr. Honey the perfect home come visit him!"


"Fiona came to the shelter as a stray. She is about 3 years old and weighs 65-70#. Fiona may come in bit of a plain brown wrapper, but with her pretty widow's peak and huge smile, you can't help but love her. Fiona is very friendly and seems to love people. She is strong on a leash and is playful, so she would have plenty of energy for running in the yard or taking nice long walks with her new family. Fiona really hopes to meet that family very soon and deserves a chance at the good life. If you'd like to meet her, please come by the shelter!"

"Wishbone came to the shelter after his owners just weren't able to take care of him anymore. Wishbone is about 6 years young and just a fantastic dog. This dog is as sweet as can be. Wishbone is definitely a staff favorite. Wishbone is good with children of all ages. He is also housebroken. He is a "velcro" dog that likes to be right by your side. If you are looking for a new best friend that won't need much training come see Wishbone. He is ready to find a new family that won't ever forget about him! *Wishbone is heartworm positive*"
