This week our featured pets are Dori and Kyla.

Dori is a very pretty 4-month old patched tabby kitten. She has a very sweet and calm disposition. Dori got to go and visit Centre students on campus a couple weeks ago and she had a blast being passed from person to person and soaking up lots of love. Dori will make her lucky adoption a wonderful lifelong friend.

Kyla is a very attractive 5-month-old mixed breed puppy. We think she may be part lab and part hound and will probably be a medium sized dog when full grown. Kyla has a shiny black coat with brown legs and a splash of white markings on her chest. She has a very intelligent eye and is ready to make someone a great companion.

A reason that we often hear for the surrender of a dog or puppy to the humane society is, “he’s just too wild and he won’t listen to me”. This is not the dog’s fault. It is caused by lack of training and attention from the owner. Puppies are cute and sweet, but as they grown and their energy levels increase they need to learn acceptable behaviors. Teaching your dog basic commands, socializing him to new people and places, giving consistent discipline plus plenty of exercise will yield a well-mannered and balanced dog. The result is a happy dog and a happy owner!

This Saturday at 12:30 p.m. is our monthly DBCHS obedience class. The class is held inside the service department at the Stuart Powell Ford Dealership on the U.S. 127 Danville Bypass. The class is free for those who have adopted from a shelter or rescue. Others are welcome to attend for a small donation to the Humane Society. If you would like to attend please pre-register for the class by emailing dbchs@bellsouth.net or you may call the humane society at (859) 238-1117. Space is limited so please sign up by Friday at noon. We hope to see you on Saturday.
