Pets of the week, April 24

Our featured pets for this week are Biscuit and Jaxon.

Biscuit

Biscuit is a handsome gray tabby with white markings. He is about three years old and was surrendered when his previous owner was no longer able to care for this sweet fellow. Biscuit was an inside kitty and we were told that he is good with other animals and kids. An interesting feature about Biscuit is that he has two different colored eyes. One is yellow and the other eye is a shade of gold. Biscuit will make a great friend for most any adopter looking for a special feline companion!

Jaxon

Jaxon is a cute brown and white Jack Russell Terrier mix that will be two years old this summer. He was brought to the humane society because his owner had too many pets to give them all the attention that they needed. Jaxon has a sweet and spunky personality. He loves to explore and play and he knows some basic commands like sit and stay (at least briefly). Jaxon just weighs 15 pounds and would do well with an indoor home where he will get the love and attention that he deserves!

This Saturday join us from 8:30 a.m. to noon at Millennium Park in Danville for the Doggie Dash 5k Fun Run/Walk. You can register up to and on race day if you would like to participate. Even if you do not care to race, come and meet some of our adoptable dogs that will be at the park.

Proceeds from the event go towards the development of an enrichment program at DBCHS. This enrichment program will include training sessions, toys, scents, and other experiences that will increase the physical and mental health of the dogs and puppies at the shelter. Entry fee is $30 until Friday and $35 on race day. Entry forms are available at Petsense, Danville Bike & Footwear and the DBCHS or you can sign up online at https://runsignup.com/Race/KY/Danville/DoggieDash5KFunRunWalk. Plan to bring your people and dog friendly canine buddy and join us for a great time!
