Pet Tails: Support the animals from the comfort of your couch

From Feb. 28 through March 12, the Brown County Humane Society will conduct the first online auction to support homeless animals. Everyone will have the opportunity to bid on great items, right from the comfort of home.

The auction is huge, with more than 100 items available. There are a wide variety of categories, including antiques and collectibles, furniture, artwork, vacation packages, sports memorabilia, crafts, toys and jewelry. Some items (like furniture) are only available for local pickup, but many things can be shipped. That means that people can bid from anywhere in the country.

You could own a piece of sports history, like an autographed Peyton Manning Indianapolis Colts helmet. Or take a dream vacation with the family to Disneyland or Gettysburg. We also have some very special vacation packages for people visiting Brown County that might entice your friends or family to come for a visit.

We’re very grateful to everyone who dona- ted items and to the local (and non-local) businesses that contributed gift certificates and special packages to help make this auction really exciting.

If you like shopping, we hope you’ll try out the auction. If you’re a supporter of the BCHS, we encourage you to share the auction opportunity with friends and family around the country as well, so that they can help support something so important to you and our community.

Pet of the Week

photoNow that all her pups are raised and off to new homes, it’s Candi’s turn to enjoy life a little — and boy does she know how! Snuggling with people is the best! Playing ball, so much fun! Even with all her happy energy, she still has enough control to refrain from jumping on people. Now that’s a skill we wish all doggies had! This fun-loving girl will bring lots of liveliness to her new family.

Welcome Sharon Hensley, DVM


We’re excited to welcome Sharon Hensley as our new shelter manager.

Sharon is a licensed veterinarian and was mostly recently a program director with the Tennessee Department of Health, focusing on state communicable disease programs. Prior to that, she was a staff veterinarian with Metro Animal Control Services in Nashville, Tennessee, and manager of veterinary services at the Nashville Humane Association.

She holds a doctorate of veterinary medicine from the University of Tennessee and a bachelor’s degree in office administration from Miami University in Ohio.

Sharon now lives in Columbus with her two dogs, Annie the Golden Retriever and Moose the Great Pyrenes. We’re looking forward to introducing her to our Nashville.
