This week our featured pets are Chaplin and Hazel.  

Chaplin

Chaplin is a sweet little 3 ½-month-old white and black kitten. You can see by his photo how he got his name. He has a darling black mustache that gives him a cute, comical look. Chaplin’s personality matches his appearance. He is friendly and playful and he is sure to keep his new family entertained. If you are looking for a purrfect addition to your home, please come and meet this sweet fellow!

Hazel is a beautiful 2 ½-year-old Pit Bull mix. She has been through the Mutts With Manners program but just hasn’t found her special person yet. Hazel is gorgeous and very smart and affectionate. She loves to play ball, go for walks or just follow you around and be close. Hazel is house-trained and also knows lots of tricks. She needs a home where she is the only dog and no cats. If you are looking for a loyal companion contact the humane society for a meet and greet with Hazel so you can if you are her perfect match!

Our Mutts With Manners program was developed to help some of the humane society adult dogs find loving homes. This program is great for adopters who are interested in adding a new canine companion to their home, but prefer not to go through the various stages of puppyhood with a new dog. Sponsored by the DBCHS in conjunction with the Northpoint Training Center in Burgin, (Northpoint Trained Canines Program), specially selected inmates train the shelter dogs for a 6-8 week period. The dogs learn basic obedience, socialization skills, crate-training and usually a few tricks along the way to help them become more adoptable.
