EATON — The Humane Society of Preble County is serving several dogs with disabilities.

According to HS officials, donations from the community allow the HS the keep them until they find their loving family. Many shelters are not able to care for dogs that are blind, deaf, need medication daily, or are senior dogs. The HSPC can only keep them because of donors’ generosity.

Ziggy, a two-year old golden colored terrier/lab mix has juvenile cataracts. This causes him to be able to only see solid shapes. He goes in and out of his kennel with no problem and could easily learn to navigate a home and yard. He’s smart, well trained and adorable. Surgery is an option but would cost $2,000 per eye.

Christy is a 2-year-old fox terrier mix with pancreatic insufficiency. She is a tri-color with a sweet smile. She must have a powder put on top of her food so it will help with digestion. This medication is a simple procedure but the issue has prevented her from being adopted numerous times, shelter works said.

To see all of the pets go to: or come into the Pet Center located at 951 South Barron St. in Eaton.
