Our featured pets this week are Rudy and Frankie.


Rudy is a precious 3-month-old orange tabby kitten with white markings. He is one of three brothers brought to us as strays. Rudy seems to have boundless kitten energy until you pick him up and then he is ready to cuddle. He seems to be a smart little fellow and he knows how to give you that sweet, little innocent look. Rudy has his whole life ahead of him to bring plenty of joy to his new home. Come meet Rudy and fall in love!

Frankie is a darling 4 ½-month-old mixed breed puppy. We are guessing that he may be part Boxer. Frankie is a little chunk, built close to the ground and at this point weighs about 20 pounds. He is a handsome brindle color with enough white markings to add a little flash to his looks. Frankie is a sweet and happy puppy and his perky attitude will bring a smile to your face when you see him in person!  

Join us this Saturday at 12:30 p.m. for 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. We offer this class to help get new dog and puppy adopters off on the right foot. Obedience training strengthens the bond between dog and owner. A well-mannered dog will be more welcome in public places and will be better behaved with visitors in your home. Training your dog or puppy is fun for both you and your canine companion. 

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 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.    

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.
