Pets of the week, June 5

Our featured pets this week are Cassie and Millie.

Cassie

Oh my, how cute is this precious eight-week-old tabby kitten named Cassie? She has been at the humane society for several weeks waiting for the day she is old enough for adoption. And that day is now! Cassie is a sweet, cuddly, bundle of fur and fun. She will delight her new family with her playful antics. Come and meet Cassie and you are sure to want to her or one of her darling siblings home with you!

Millie

Millie is a pretty black and tan Doberman mix pup. She will be one-year-old this summer and she weighs about 45 lbs. Millie was adopted early this year, but things did not work in her first home so she is hoping for a second chance at her forever home. Millie is a sweet girl with big brown eyes. She walks well on leash and would do well in a home where she gets plenty of exercise and attention. If you think you can give Millie the home she deserves, then please come for a meet and greet with this gorgeous girl!

June is Adopt a Shelter Cat Month. This is a time when shelters see a large influx of cats and kittens. If you are considering adding a feline companion to your home, remember that an adopted kitten or cat will be spayed or neutered, up to date on vaccinations and dewormed and tested negative for feline leukemia. By adopting from the humane society you are saving two lives; the kitty you take home and that also makes room for us to help another homeless cat or kitten.

Here are five reasons why cats make great pets. Provide a clean litterbox and cats housetrain themselves! Cats do not take up much room so they can easily live in small homes and apartments. Kitties do not bark. Cats are fun and will entertain you with their cute and quirky behaviors. The purr of a cat is known to be healing to human beings.

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.
