DBCHS Pets of the week, November 28

By BARB BEANEY

Our featured pets this week are Wilma and Spot.

Wilma is a beautiful adult calico cat. She was a stray and even though she was microchipped we were not able to contact her owners, so this sweet girl is now ready for a fresh start. Wilma is quite the social butterfly. She lives in one of our kitty condos with several other cats and she gets along fine. Wilma is sure to greet any visitors with a purr and sweet meow and outstretched paw. Come for a visit and let Wilma put a smile on your face.

Meet our dog of the week, Spot! Housebroken,  he stands at 5-foot-4, gets along with all walks of life and loves a good fundraiser. Spot is quite special and has a forever home in the heart and soul of DBCHS, yet he still needs your help! Spot’s goal is to raise awareness and encourage support for his thousands of furry friends who pass through the doors of DBCHS each year. They live in a top-notch facility with friendly staff and volunteers who can’t do what they do without your support. Instead of a home this week, Spot is asking that in the spirit of the holidays you give of your time or resources to help his shelter who will passionately continue in their mission. Whether it be donations, volunteering at PetSmart, adoption events or just spending time with his friends, Spot is eternally grateful! Stay tuned to Facebook for more ways to help.

Our next DBCHS obedience class is this Saturday at 12:30. The class is held inside the service department at the Stuart Powell Ford Dealership on U.S. 127 South Bypass. The class is free for those who have adopted from a shelter or rescue. Others are welcome to join in for a small donation to the Humane Society. 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 at noon.
