Adoptable Candie

Meet Candie.

Today, we need your help. We’re reaching out to the entire Paws Humane Society family – thousands of animal advocates like you – in hopes you can help us find a very special dog a very deserving home. Candie is a three-year-old mixed breed dog who came to Paws Humane as a stray rescued from Columbus Animal Care and Control. She’s been waiting longer than most to find her forever home. More than 400 days to be exact.


That’s nearly half her life.




Candie currently resides in room number seven on our dog adoption floor. It’s safe to say she calls this room home now as she’s lived here for far too long. And as much love and attention she receives from staff and volunteers, our shelter is not the forever home she deserves.

Candie originally came to Paws Humane at the beginning of 2020. During that time, she was adopted one time for a few months and then returned to the shelter. She’s a sweet and affectionate girl who loves nothing more than to receive pets and back scratches all day long. In fact, when you stop petting her, she’ll express a nice little grumble from her mouth to let you know she would like the affection to continue. Silly girl!

Wonder why she has been with us for so long? You see, Candie needs a special home. And sometimes special homes take a while to find. That’s okay though because we are dedicated to Candie, and we think you will be too!

Candie’s ideal home:

• A cat and small animal free home would be best but, a meet and greet with a resident dog is always a possibility
• Children in the home are teens and older
• A family who loves to spend time outside and will take Candie on outdoor adventures with them

What can you do to help Candie?

Foster Candie first

Foster-to-adopt is a recommended option for any potential adopters! The last thing we want to do is disappoint our girl, so this option allows you to see how Candie fits with your lifestyle, with full support from our foster and behavior teams. If for some reason she isn’t the right fit for your family, you may bring her back to the shelter.

We understand not everyone is looking to add a furry family member to their lives, but we do know the right family for Candie is out there somewhere. All we ask if for a quick share. Share Candie’s story and help us find her a life outside of the four walls in room number seven.

If you are interested in adopting Candie, our adoptions team is here to answer any questions you may have. Please call us at 706-565-0035 or email adoptions@pawshumane.org.
