This week our featured pets are Petunia and Scooby.

Petunia is a gorgeous one-year-old solid white cat with beautiful big golden eyes. She was an owner surrender. Unfortunately, her family was moving to housing that did not allow pets. Petunia is as sweet as she is pretty! She has been an indoor cat and has been around children. Petunia is a loving girl with a quiet disposition. She is ready to make a fresh start in a new home so come for a visit and see if Petunia is your purrfect match!

Scooby is a handsome two-year-old German Shepherd. He was a stray but his owner has not been found so Scooby is looking for a second chance at his forever home. Scooby is a smart and friendly fellow. He does very well on leash and knows basic commands. Scooby will climb fences so he needs an indoor home where he will get the love and attention that he needs and deserves. If Scooby sounds like a good fit for your family, please come and meet this sweet fellow in person!

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, KY (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.
