Thankful for Sadie, Boo, and HSforBC
Thank you HSforBC for allowing Sadie to adopt me
in 2010 after being my foster for many months.
She has been my constant companion and life.
Sadie had been in the HSforBC family for a long
time without finding her forever home. She attended nearly all adoption events without success
and was passed between foster families many
times. In 2010, Sadie was the HSforBC canine
queen for the Lebanon 4th of July parade and was
the HsforBC pet advocate for senior dog adoptions
attending events, parades and fundraisers.
I found Sadie's genealogy on Lebanon Chatter,
which explained her history being adopted as a
puppy from the Clinton County Animal Shelter, being a homeless street dog, an inmate at the Lebanon Street Department and she failed various rehoming attemps before finding her path from foster care to me. My life is better because HsforBC
saved Sadie and gave us our forever friendship. If
you are considering adopting a senior -just do it! A
senior dog will be devoted and appreciate you as
their savior. God bless our friends and family at
HSforBC. Its with a broken heart I share that
Sadie crossed the rainbow bridge on Halloween.
Then, along came Boo. Boo was found lost or discarded in the median on I65 at the busy Zionsville
exit on the day before Halloween (the same day
Sadie collapsed). Boo is such a perfect fit its uncanny. Almost like Sadie met Boo in their crisis
and Sadie filled Boo in on how to be my perfect
I miss Sadie terribly but Boo
“Bear” is doing a great job filling the void, all
77 lbs of her! She is the largest foster dog I
have hosted, taking up the whole loveseat and
both front seats in the car. She happily goes up
to everyone greeting guests with tail wags and
kisses. Thank you Humane Society for Boone
County for allowing me to foster senior dogs!

7 ways to make
the holidays
safer for your
1. Keep people food out of the reach of your pet and ask
your guests to do the same.
2. Make sure your pet doesn't have any access to treats,
especially those containing chocolate, xylitol, grapes and
raisins, onions or other toxic foods.
3. Don't leave your pet alone in the room with lit candles,
a decorated tree or potpourri.
4. Keep holiday plants out of reach of pets (especially
holly, mistletoe and lillies).
5. Consider leaving the tinsel off your tree if you have a
6. Secure your Christmas tree to keep it from falling
over if your dog bumps it or your cat climbs it; hanging
lemon-scented car air fresheners in the tree may deter
your cat from climbing it.
7. If your pet is excitable or scared when you have company, consider putting your pet in another room with
some of his/her toys, a comfortable bed, etc. or providing a safe place for your pet to escape the excitement
(such as a kennel, crate, perching place, scratching post
shelf or hiding place).

Dear Friends,
This has been an incredible year for the Humane Society for Boone County (HSforBC)! We raised more
than $92,000 this year earmarked specifically for our building fund through fundraiser events. We are
over half-way to our goal of raising $1.5 million dollars to make a physical shelter a reality. Please help
us grow our shelter dollars faster!
We have an incredible opportunity with our partners at the Community Foundation of Boone County
(CFBC) to match donations made to the Humane Society of Boone County Non-Permanent Fund held at
the CFBC. Funds held at the CFBC are professionally managed to responsibly grow the fund values. The
HSforBC non-permanent fund is designated to fund a shelter. The Community Foundation will match
fifty cents to every dollar donated to this fund up to a total of $35,000 in matching dollars thru March
31, 2016 (or until the match is reached).
While the critters still need and appreciate your donations for medical care and general needs, please
consider a special year-end gift specifically to help us receive the match donations for the shelter
fund. Donations for the shelter fund eligible for the match should be made out to CFBC and mailed directly to:
Community Foundation of Boone County
Memo line: HSforBC Non-Permanent Fund
102 N Lebanon Street, Suite 200
Lebanon, IN 46052
To make an online match eligible gift, go to and specify the HSBC NP fund.
A financial gift of support from you will greatly assist in helping us reach this monumental goal. Thank
you for your trust, your support and a wonderful year. Here’s to helping more dogs, puppies, cats and
kittens in 2016 and beyond!
Pawsitively yours,
Susan Austin
Vice President and Director of Fundraising, Humane Society for Boone County
