DBCHS Pets of the week, March 6

Published 7:40 pm Tuesday, March 5, 2019

Our featured pets for this week are David and Max.

David is a precious 7-month-old domestic shorthair. He was a friendly stray that was brought to the humane society along with his siblings in early January. David is mostly white with a couple gray spots on his body and gray markings on his head. David is very social. He is in one of our kitty condos where he lives peacefully with several other kitties. David loves to play, explore and interact with visitors. This furry fellow would make a great feline addition to most any home.



Max is a handsome 1-year-old shepherd mix that weighs about 40 pounds. He has a rich brown coat with some black highlights around his muzzle. Just check out the big smile in Max’s photo and you can see he has a big personality. Max is full of joy with an outgoing temperament. He loves to go for walks and would make a great jogging buddy. Max has been in a wonderful foster home and does great with other dogs, but he needs a home with no cats. Come visit Max this week at the humane society while his foster family is on vacation. Max is eager to meet you and find his forever home.

It is early spring now, but soon it will be “kitten season.” Cats produce kittens during the warm months of the year. By mid-May shelters and rescues start seeing a great influx of cats and kittens. In past years the DBCHS has taken in more than 150 cats and kittens each month during the late spring and summer. We want to substantially lower this number, but we need your help.

If you have taken in a stray cat or kitten or if you choose to feed outside cats, please be responsible and have them spayed or neutered. Cats that have been altered live longer and have healthier lives and they will not be contributing to the vast number of unwanted cats and kittens that are surrendered to animal shelters every year. If you need help with low cost or even free spay or neuter surgery for your cat or kitten, call the humane society at (859) 238-1117 for assistance.

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.
