Our featured pets for this week are Mouse and Connie.

Mouse

    Mouse is a sweet and loving 10-month-old kitty. She was surrendered to the humane society because of her elderly owner’s failing health. Mouse is a beautiful girl with swirling tabby markings and white on her chest and all four feet. Mouse is very social. She loves attention and will make a wonderful pet for many years to come if you can just offer her that second chance at her forever home. 

    Connie is a precious 3 ½-month-old Jack Russell Terrier mix puppy. She is white and black with a tri-color head and has cute whiskers on her face. Connie is a little bit of a shy girl but she loves to snuggle and is just looking for someone to give her a little extra attention and love. Connie weighs about 12 pounds and should stay a nice size for a house dog. She’s playful and her sweet personality will keep a smile on your face if you decide to choose Connie as your forever friend.

It is early spring now, but soon it will be “kitten season.” Cats produce kittens during the warm months of the year. By mid-May shelters and rescues start seeing a great influx of cats and kittens. Did you know that the humane society takes in more than 150 cats and kittens each month during the late spring and summer? Many of these are kittens born to stray or feral cats.

If you choose to feed stray or feral cats, please be responsible and have them spayed or neutered. Cats that have been altered live longer and have healthier lives and they will not be contributing to the vast number of unwanted cats and kittens that are surrendered to animal shelters every year.         

Low-cost, high-quality spay/neuter surgery is available for pet owners with low and fixed incomes.  Call our Happy Paws Clinic today at (859) 691-1137 for an appointment. Please help control pet over-population by having your pet spayed or neutered.
