Our featured pets of the week are Kathy and Shorty.


Kathy is a beautiful 2-year-old black kitty with gorgeous yellow eyes. She was a stray that was rescued by a kind citizen who brought her to the humane society so she would be safe and find her forever home. Kathy is very friendly and gets along great with other cats. Wouldn’t you love to have your own special Halloween kitty? Kathy will bring you only good luck if you choose her for adoption.

Shorty is a cute mixed breed dog that was found running loose in town. He is about 5 years old and maybe a Retriever/Basset mix. Shorty is chocolate brown with longer hair and he is a short legged fellow, build close to the ground. Shorty walks well on the leash and is friendly and gets along with other dogs. What more could you want in a great canine buddy. Come for a visit and see if Shorty is a great match for your family!

Join us this Saturday for Woof or Treat at the Boyle County Fairgrounds. This super fun event is sponsored by the DBCHS/Mutts With Manners.

Bring your dog or puppy dressed and ready to participate in his or her Halloween costume and vie for prizes for the most creative, cutest and best couple (dog & handler). So get to work on that perfect costume and come and have a howling great time!
