"Phoenix" is an adorable 1-1/2 year old male Polydactyl (extra-toes) kitty who made his debut at the HSOV on November 25, 2014. This sweet young man has a black-and-white-short smooth coat, extra-toes on his huge front paws, a long tail, and a handsome face with large golden eyes and the cutest pink nose. "Phoenix" has a captivating personality, though we admit he could be considered a bandit since he has stolen so many hearts :) This charming guy is affectionate as well as playful, and he seems to have the personality of a dog :) "Phoenix" loves everyone (adults, children, other cats, and dogs). He is a fairly big boy who currently weighs 10.8 lbs., so there is lots of him to love. "Phoenix" has been combo tested and is negative for both feline leukemia and FIV. He was neutered on January 9, 2015 and was also given rabies vaccine, so his adoption fee would be just $10 with an approved adoption application. "Phoenix" has enjoyed two wonderful foster homes and has gotten along marvelously (both homes have cat-friendly dogs). Please contact the HSOV at 740.373.5959 or send an email to if you would like to meet this debonair kitty in person. His adoption fee has been sponsored by someone who fell in love with him but cannot adopt him as her own :( NOTE: This short video was taken on January 31, 2015.
Turn up your speakers to hear Shadow's happy barks :) First time we heard him make a sound was when he saw his family! And he jumped into their arms :) :)
Rock "O" is a handsome 3-year old male Pit Bull Terrier mix who arrived at the HSOV on February 20, 2014. Our kennel tech supervisor, Mary Buck, discovered that Rock "O" knew several dance steps, so naturally our photographer just had to make a short slideshow :) Mary Buck told Rock "O" about the HSOV Fur Ball on February 22nd, so he and Mary practiced a few dance routines before his photo session :)

Luca is a beautiful 2-year old female Alaskan Malamute/Husky who was surrendered to the HSOV because her owner didn't have time to give her the attention Luca deserved.

This gorgeous young lady has a cream-and-gray short dense coat, a long bushy tail, and a classic Malamute/Husky face with pale blue eyes and large erect ears.

Luca's previous owner told us that Luca had been kept indoors and confined to a room when she was left alone, and that she was accustomed to taking sho...rt walks for her exercise routine. Luca is housebroken.

Her previous owner recommended that Luca be placed in a home where she could be an 'only child' and would not have to share her home with children, other dogs, or cats.

Luca weighs 44 lbs, walks fairly well on a leash, and will 'sit' on command. She has been heartworm tested and will be spayed before being adopted by her new family

Thanks to HSOV Humane Officer Jon McIntire and HSOV Lead Feline Kennel Tech Rennelle Casto, these three one-week old orphaned (abandoned) kittens' lives were sa...ved on the evening of Monday, April 16, 2018 Jon received a report from someone who heard tiny meows at a local business establishment earlier that day. Jon and Rennelle drove to the location and they found these three tiny souls meowing at the top of their voices. Sadly their little black sibling had not survived The temperature that night was close to freezing

The surviving kittens were already cold to the touch, but the evening kitten rescue was successful Rennelle kept the babies overnight and made sure they were warm and fed during the night. She brought them to work with her the following morning and contacted one of our newest kitten foster mothers Paula Enoch Oliphant to ask if she might be able to help. Paula picked the three kittens up later that afternoon and has arranged a partnership with Amedisys Hospice and the residents of Brookdale Marietta to assist in caring for the kittens

This photo of the tiny orphans was taken shortly before they left our shelter with Paula. The kittens have been named (from left-to-right): Angus, Moo Moo, and Ferdinand.
