Sebastian and Sparkle need a forever home!

The Humane Society of Elkhart County has two very special dogs currently looking for a forever home.   Sebastian is a Beagle/Basset Hound mix. He is approximately six years old. He is neutered and up to date on all vaccinations. Sebastian came to the shelter after being seized due to neglect. Through his whole life, he has not received proper vet care. Because of this, Sebastian has had chronic ear infections his whole life. Due to the extent of the infection and neglect, Sebastian had to have both of his ear canals removed. Sebastian still has a minimal amount of hearing. This surgery was extremely extensive and happened over about a four day period. Sebastian will need a home that understands he is a special needs dog and will need extra care for the rest of his life. Sebastian also has an allergy issue due to the state of his ears. Even though Sebastian has had a rough six years, this boy is so spunky and loving. He loves all dogs and people that he meets. Sebastian is loveable and enjoys spending time with people. This boy is definitely ready to be the prince in your life!

You can also give a monetary donation for food.

 

You can drop off donations at the shelter during business hours. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call us.

We will be CLOSED to the public on Monday January 27th and Tuesday January 28th  due to weather conditions. We do have a skeleton crew caring for the animals.

The staff will be monitoring our hotline messages for injured or animals in imminent danger. If an animal is out for long periods in this frigid weather, please call law enforcement first as this is against state and local statues.

Please be safe!
