Rhonda was adopted from us as a young kitten and sadly received no socialization while in her adopted home. After her adopters had her for 2 years, they brought a puppy home and Rhonda did not like the puppy at all.  Sadly, her adopters chose to bring Rhonda back to the shelter. Rhonda is still very unsure of shelter life and while she does ok in a community room, she would prefer a loving home. Rhonda would be fine living with one other cat but has proved she is not interested in sharing her space with a dog. She would be perfect for a quiet home with someone looking for a cat to love on. Adopt Rhonda! Come to the shelter today to visit Rhona. I am sure she will win you over! Her adoption fee is just $25.
  2. 2. a collar with information from the last place you lived, this will end up a dead end when your pet is found and brought to a shelter. So what is the best method? Microchipping! It can’t be removed or discarded like a collar can and is a very safe method of protecting your pet. So how does a microchip work? A veterinarian inserts a sterile applicator, much like a syringe used for vaccines, with the microchip in it. The microchip is the shape and size of a grain of uncooked rice and gets inserted in the loose skin behind the shoulder blades of each animal. Once inserted, the animal is scanned which records a specific number to that animal and any identifying information about him or her, like name, breed and address. There are no batteries in the microchip itself, nor can it deteriorate in the animal’s body, so there is no harm to the animal. Microchips are designed to last much longer than the lifespan of cats and dogs, and only are active when the scanner passes over them. If you are worried about what microchip to use on any pets that you may have acquired outside of our rescue, there is one simple rule to follow. Make sure the microchip that is inserted in your pet is on the worldwide scan system. That way, any scanner, in any location, will read the number and the information to locate you. Additionally, if you are someone who travels a lot and would like a more stable contact person, many microchip suppliers recommend also including information on MCSPCA Officers President Tom Jenkins Vice-President Shaun McWilliams Treasurer Nicole Florio Secretary Sandy Larson Board of Directors Jennifer Anzalone Cindy Brode Patrick Hahn Will Klingel Michael Kozimor Dr. Thomas Lehner Erica Moehring Bonnie Morris Diane Pekarek William Post MCSPCA Staff Tracey Miller Director of Operations Humane Officer Carrie Moore Newsletter Editor Tori Thomas Atelier Design, Graphics Tina Wagner Medina County SPCA 8790 Guilford Road Seville, OH 44273 330-723-7722 SHELTERNEWS Tracey Miller Director of Operations A lack of pet identification has become a real problem for our shelter and many rescues around the country. Home Again, a trusted pet locating and microchipping service provider, reported recently that over 10 million dogs are lost or stolen a year. A year! For the feline friends, only 2 percent of cats that are lost are returned to their home, due to lack of collar, tags or microchip. If this produces chills down your spine, like it does to mine, it is time to change the statistics and do a few simple things to help make sure your dog or cat gets returned to you in the horrible event they become lost. The first overlooked necessity for a dog or cat is a collar with tags or embroidered information on the collar itself. Although these can be removed or fall off while your pet is on the loose and is not as fool proof as a microchip, an identifying collar still can help in the event we find your pet. However, a collar is only as good as the information on it. If you are using Jillian Jillian is good with other cats, really friendly and sweet, and has a musical meow, she is also a good biscuit maker, too! Find more information about Jillian on page 13. Medina County SPCA The Shelters Perspective
  3. 3. URGENT ADOPTION REQUEST JD has been at the shelter for almost 800 days. Isn’t there anyone that has room for a sweet horse? We are asking you to seriously consider making room in your pasture for this terrific horse. Two full years at an adoption center is just too long!!! JD is looking for a miracle to happen soon. He has been at our facility for way to long, watching his pasture mates get adopted and is looking for a forever family of his own!!! JD is a 21-year-old, 16 hand, half Arabian gelding, who is full of love. He has an easygoing nature and is just so happy to be with other horses and people who love on him. Since he came from a situation where he was by himself for quite some time, JD prefers to spend time with other animals in a pasture, whether it be other horses, goats, alpacas, or potbellied pigs. JD loves everyone. Are you willing to give this guy a forever home? If you are interested in this awesome guy, please call the Medina County SPCA at 330-723-7722 for more information. JD’s adoption fee is $250 or you can sponsor him for $50/month. Hooveswithheart your veterinarian. This gives a second layer of protection to make sure your loved pet will be returned home to you. Unfortunately, along with missing collars or collars that have the wrong information on them, we find lots of animal’s that have microchips that are not updated with current owner information. Without that piece of the puzzle we don’t know who to return the pet to and we must put it up for adoption if we can’t find the person who owns it. When I tell you that this happens on a very regular basis, I am not kidding. Can you imagine the heartbreak when you find out that someone else has your dog or cat because you failed to update the information needed to return it to you? Most dogs or cats adopted through the MCSPCA will have a microchip already inserted and registered with 24 Pet Watch. We even update the records for you, upon adoption and the service that records this information is free for the life of the animal. In the event that you move, want to update the information or purchase additional pet locating products you can do that on their website at or call 1-866-597-2424. If you would like further information about the microchipping service we use for our adoptable cats and dogs, please feel free to call the shelter at 330-723-7722. We would also welcome monetary donations to our microchipping fund. You can do that through our website at on the donate tab. Looking For A Furrever Home

If you would like more information, please call 330-723-7722. Calling all pig lovers… please give this little piggy a home. Scooby Stay calm, stay calm, look serious, I need them to think that I’m a good boy, such a good, calm puppy, who sits so nicely and looks very serious and good... Whew! That’s a tough thing to do! Because I’m NOT a calm puppy! I’m a bouncy puppy! A fun puppy! A SMART puppy! I even learned a new word, here! My new word is “ob-nox-ious”! Obnoxious! I think it means, “a really fun puppy who is bouncy and great with tons of potential to be an awesome dog when he grows up”! So cool! And so, so true! Because I’m super fun! And I LOVE people! And treats are great and toys are great and everything’s great! It’s no wonder I can’t keep myself calm! Who could be calm with so much great stuff going on? Especially, when I may be getting a real family of my own, soon! Gosh, I hope they love to have fun! Do you know them? My new family, I mean? You can’t miss them – they’re fun and nice and patient and kind and they know how to teach me rules and all the cool stuff a good puppy should know! Oh, and they’re active, too – because I’ve got the energy to keep the party going, for sure! When you see them, can you please send them my way? Tell them to ask for Scooby – that’s me! More about Scooby: Scooby is nearly 6 months old, neutered, microchipped, and current on his vaccinations. His adoption fee is partially sponsored and is only $150. If you have an existing dog, a meet and greet is needed to make sure that Scooby isn’t too bouncy for them. Scooby is not house trained or leash trained or anything else trained as far as we can tell. However he’s sweet and has great potential to be an awesome dog with a little structure in his life! Scooby has been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and has tested neg. for heartworm which is included in the $150 adoption fee. If you would like to adopt this dog, please contact the shelter at 330-723-7722. SAVE THE DATE! 9th Annual Night at the Races Saturday, February 23 Williams on the Lake adoption News
  5. 5. citizens have discovered a stray or injured animal. An example is receiving a call from a concerned citizen that saw a cat being thrown out of a truck. I arranged to meet the caller. When I arrived, the couple had picked up the abandoned cat and was holding it in a blanket. At the time, the cat seemed in overall good health with a few abrasions. He was purring and seemed affectionate. I was able to take him to the shelter where I fed him and put him in a cage with warm blankets. Upon a veterinary exam, X-rays revealed that the cat had been shot with approximately 13 bb’s. Knowing I was able to be available to rescue a harmless animal and give it another chance at a better life, is what makes this position rewarding.” If someone came to you about volunteering with the MCSPCA, what would you say? “I would welcome the potential volunteer and let them know what a rewarding experience it has been for me. I would ask them what their interest would be in; cats, dogs and horses. So far I have seen pigs, rabbits, snakes and hamsters come to the shelter. There are many opportunities at the shelter for someone to volunteer their services depending on what they like to do. A big reason I like coming to the shelter is the people that work and volunteer there. Lisa, Jessica, Kathy, Sally, Debbie, Nicole and last, but not least, Tracey. These are very hardworking, diligent people that truly care about what they do at the shelter. It can be hard work, but coupled with other amazing volunteers, I believe most everyone would find it a very rewarding experience.” Can you tell me about the pets you have at home? “I was lucky enough to be able to adopt two beagles from the MCSPCA in the past year and half. Bentley, a blue tick beagle, and another beagle, Daisy. In both adoptions, I had the opportunity to get to know both dogs at the dedicated Hearts For some people, it takes time to figure out what volunteering situation is right for them, but for Mike Cobb, his love for animals drew him to the Medina County SPCA and he has never looked back. How long have you been a volunteer with the MCSPCA? “I have been a volunteer with the MCSPCA for the past two years. I have volunteered at food banks, parks, Boy Scout camps, zoos and schools, but what I’ve always enjoyed most is animals. When I began at the MCSPCA, we had two rescued beagles. I realized someone had to get those dogs ready for adoption and I wanted to help do that for other animals.” After the orientation class, what was your first task at the shelter? “I know most people don’t start out this way, but my first task as a volunteer was helping with a cat adoption. A woman wanted a cat that she had seen at Petsmart before it was transferred back to the shelter. The cats at Pet Smart get rotated to make them as visible to as many people as possible. During transfer, she followed the cat from Pet Smart to the shelter and then sat with the cat a very long time in the cat room. She made it very clear she wasn’t leaving without it. Thankfully Lisa assisted me with the adoption and it further cemented that I had found a great place to volunteer.” Your current tasks include dog walking, general help and being part of the Rescue Team. Please tell me more about being an emergency rescue technician. “I cover one Emergency Rescue Tech on call shift on Fridays 5pm to 5am. The calls range from advice over the phone to assisting when the police or community “For the last two years I have been very appreciative of the opportunity of being able to work with other volunteers and staff that share the same passion for saving and nurturing stray and injured animals. Being able to care for them so that they can find their new families never gets old.” shelter, when I would feed, walk and play with them. Bentley was surrendered by his previous owner due to the owner’s illness and couldn’t be taken care of anymore. Daisy is a timid dog, but still is so loving, sweet and fun. She had a rough first 4-5 years of life, being a breeding dog. During her stay at the MCSPCA she was recovering from a broken pelvis. As many volunteers did there, they were instructed to walk her on short walks. Once Daisy became available, I couldn’t let her go and had to have her. I wouldn’t trade Bentley and Daisy for anything. I also want to remember two of my beloved beagles that I lost recently, Hunter and Tank. They both passed due to age. My wife and I adopted them from the Medina County Shelter in 2008 and 2009 respectively. They were an important part of our small family and I sure do miss them.” Anything else you would like to add? “For the last two years I have been very appreciative of the opportunity of being able to work with other volunteers and staff that share the same passion for saving and nurturing stray and injured animals. Being able to care for them so that they can find their new families never gets old.” Mike’s commitment to the MCSPCA has been a gift to the animals he has taken care of at the shelter. His determination and compassion is apparent, as he continues to focus on helping animals find permanent, loving homes. The staff and volunteers of the MCSPCA would like to thank Mike for all his efforts. If you are interested in volunteering at the MCSPCA, please contact the shelter at 330-723-7722 or you can sign up for an orientation class on Facebook. DedicatedHearts MikeCobb

  8. 8. wiskers &Wags After Amber’s childhood dog sadly passed away, Amber found herself casually browsing Petfinder, a website for adoptable pets.  Amber and her husband Mark, weren’t intending to adopt a cat, but upon seeing Hogan’s picture, Amber knew she had to meet him.  Hogan was rescued by the MCSPCA. Born with an eye that has a permanent wink and smushed little nose, Hogan quickly became one of the favorite residents of the shelter. Upon meeting Amber, Hogan immediately approached and gave her kisses when she entered the room he was staying in. You can certainly say it was love at first sight for both Amber and Hogan.    Hogan After Hogan’s adoption in 2014, Hogan very quickly adapted to his new home and family, that also included Gigi the yorkie. Hogan loves to play with Gigi, as well as with any toy that has catnip.  Anytime Amber is sitting on the couch, he is very quick to jump into her lap and lay there until she needs to get up.  He does the same at bedtime, even laying on top of Amber’s chest and will stay on her or right next to her all night.  Besides his undeniable cuteness, one of Mark and Amber’s favorite features of Hogan is how soft his fur is.  They’ve never met a softer kitty!   Amber quickly found that with Hogan’s unique features people were drawn to him. So after some thought, Amber decided she wanted to spread the happiness that Hogan brings to her and created an Instagram account for him called @hogan.winky.kitty.  He now has over 11,000 followers and gets more every day!  His followers enjoy seeing Hogan’s daily activities. The unexpected reward from Hogan’s followers has been the support they have given Amber as well as other people online that want to provide their home to a special needs animal. “Hogan’s page has brought to light the need for people to see a beautiful creature who deserves love just as much as any other animal. I believe Hogan is responsible for starting the dialog about this need and helping those animals find loving homes.” Hogan the Internet Sensation!

Wait, it’s... optamiksic? Um, optimistic? That’s it – I’m optimistic! It means “hopeful about the future”! (I’m good with words, too! I once pushed all the Scrabble tiles right off the board! Pretty sure that’s how you win the game...) Now, you might think that a cat who has been brought back to the shelter would be bummed out – not me! It’s true that my last place didn’t work out. There was just too gosh darn much commotion for me, there. But the people were nice and brought me back here so I could find a home that “fits better”. Works for me! And I don’t think it will be too difficult for me to find a quieter (and dog–free!) home. I mean, I’m good with other cats, I’m really friendly and sweet, I have a musical meow, and I’m a good biscuit maker, too! So if you maybe know of someone who needs a nice cat like me (and they have a quieter home with no dogs), can you please send them my way? Tell them to ask for Jillian – that’s me! Thank you! This lovely (and unique) girl loves chin scritches (LOVES THEM) and is friendly and sweet! Her meow is musical! And she’s a very fine biscuit maker with her little paws. So, if you have a quieter home (without running children and dogs barking) and need a perfectly sweet cat, come meet Jillian! Jillian is 3 years old, spayed, and current on her vaccinations.
