Zionsville Country Kennel was born, and is driven, by our love of animals.
Over the years pets have been abandoned after a boarding stay, dumped into our exercise yards, and given to us after the loss of their owners. We have fostered these pets until a new home could be found. While we ARE NOT a humane society, and do not intend to become one, we do have a few stray animals looking for another chance.
Our trainers, Janalee and Sue play an integral part in fostering every stray that stays with us. They help them to be successful in their new environments by socializing them, training them, and teaching them new manners.
This page is dedicated to all of the strays that touch our hearts, past and present. We will post pictures of our current friends looking for new owners and will also include some of our success stories…because we all love a happy ending.
Please feel free to contact us if you have an interest in opening your home to one of our strays.
William is a 1 year old weimeraner/poodle mix. He arrived at the kennel in February, 2010 and was very withdrawn, anxious, and fearful of people...to the point that he would avoid all contact with humans.
Fortunately, William gains strength from other dogs and so Janalee and Sue have been able to capitalized on that and are working diligently to socialize him and to be less fearful of people. William is making slow, but steady progress. He now takes treats from the people he trusts, will accept handling and petting, and is learning basic obedience commands. He loves to romp and play with other dogs and especially enjoys a refreshing dip in the wading pool. William has no departure time line, but if/when that time comes he would do well with a patient owner that has experience with a fearful dog.
Bullet is an energetic and playful 9-month old lab/weimeraner mix who loves to play with people, dogs, and toys. He came to Zionsville Country Kennel from a family whose house was too small for a dog his size. He is good with kids and other pets. Bullet is just starting his training program and is looking for a new owner that will continue with his training, socialization, and a lifetime of wonderful adventures. Bullet is available anytime and would love to find a new forever home.
Marvin is a youthful (2-3 yr) Border Collie who was found running alone on New Years Eve, 2009. At that time he was extremely thin and very anxious, but quickly regained his weight and confidence at the kennel. He loves to run (and run, and run…..) and play with toys, dogs, and people. As spring rolled around, we learned that Marvin was terrified of thunderstorms and would throw himself against the walls, claw at the doors, and bark incessantly. Fortunately for Marvin, his new (and very active) adoptive family lives in Sacramento, California—far away from those distressing Midwest thunderstorms! Good Luck Marvin!!
Max who is a dignified boxer/pit mix, was almost one year old when he came to the kennel. Max was showing signs of dog-aggression and his owner could no longer keep him, nor could he find a suitable home. With an abundance of training, socialization, and exposure at the kennel, Max settled into being a playful, obedient, and loving dog. Max was lucky to find an adoptive family that understood and knew how to handle the breed. Better yet, his new pack included another dog, a new best friend! Max and his new friend Bailey still come to kennel camp on occasion. We love seeing them and it is obvious Max has found his perfect new family!!
