DBCHS Pets of the week, July 3

Our featured pets for this week are Aiden and Queenie.

Aiden is a darling 8-week-old kitten. He is almost a solid blue gray in color with just a small white patch on his chest. Aiden is a very sweet and cuddly little fellow. He loves to be held and carried. Aiden is just one of our many precious kittens that needs a loving home. Come for a visit and it will be hard to resist his handsome looks and charming personality.

Queenie is a gorgeous 5-year-old heeler mix. Her coat is a mixture of brown merle color and lots of flashy white. Queenie was a stray, but her owner has not been found so she is ready to make a fresh start in a new home. Queenie is a good girl and seems to be quite intelligent. Even though she is a bit older, she will need attention and exercise to keep her happy. Come meet Queenie and see if she is your perfect match.

This Saturday at 12:30 p.m. is our monthly DBCHS obedience class. The class is held inside the service department at the Stuart Powell Ford Dealership on the 127 Danville Bypass. 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 dbchs@bellsouth.net or you may call the Humane Society at (859) 238-1117. Space is limited so please sign up by Friday noon. We hope to see you on Saturday!

Tomorrow we’ll be celebrating the 4th of July. This is a fun and festive holiday for people, but it can be very traumatic for our dogs and cats. They are sensitive to the loud sounds of the fireworks and some dogs and cats find it quite scary. So please make sure your pets are in a safe and secure place during the fireworks. And just in case your pet should escape make sure he has proper identification.

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.
