Our featured pets for this week are Spanky and Trina.

Spanky

Spanky is a darling 11-week-old tabby kitten. He was brought to the humane society because his family discovered their toddler was allergic to cats. Spanky is very social and outgoing. When you approach his kennel, he will reach through the bars in a playful manner and he loves to held and cuddled. Spanky is so sweet and will bring many years of love and joy to his adoptive family!

Trina

Trina is a gorgeous 4 ½-month-old mixed breed puppy. She looks like she may be part shepherd and part hound. Trina has a dark golden coat with pretty white markings including a neat stripe down her face. Trina is a sweet girl that will do great with a family that has time to give her the attention and love that she deserves. With consistent training and TLC Trina is sure to reach her full potential as a loyal companion! 

Kitten season has officially begun. This is the time when humane societies, shelters and rescues are overwhelmed with the influx of baby kittens and mother cats. Did you know that in 2016 the DBCHS took in 1,240 felines and over 750 were baby kittens? 

You can help by donating kitten care supplies such as dry kitten food, canned kitten food, fleece blankets, heating pads and bottles for feeding kittens. Foster homes are also needed for momma cats with kittens and orphan kittens. To learn more about becoming a foster parent and how to apply you can call the DBCHS at (859) 238-1117 or email us at dbchs@bellsouth.net. If you are ready to add a feline companion to your home now is a great time to adopt. You will not only save the kitty that you adopt, but you also open the space for another cat or kitten to be helped!    

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.
