DBCHS Pets of the week, May 1

Our featured pets for this week are Mayla and Milo.

Mayla is a truly gorgeous long-haired gray tabby. She is a young adult that was found as a stray in town and brought to the humane society by a concerned citizen. Mayla is a very friendly and relaxed girl. She has always been easy to handle and adapts quietly and quickly to new surroundings and situations. It seems reasonable to assume that Mayla was once an indoor kitty. She has now been spayed and brought up to date on vaccinations and she’s ready to make some lucky adopter a very special friend.

Milo is a darling, 20 pound, tri-colored Beagle that was found out in the county. His owner has not been located so Milo is looking for a fresh start with a new family. He has a pretty face with some graying, indicating he is a bit older, and he has those big brown eyes that tug at your heart. Milo may have a few years on him, but he has plenty of playful energy. He’s a friendly fellow that’s never met a stranger, and he would love to become a treasured member of your family.

The entry fee is $30 and includes a cool t-shirt. Check-in opens at 7:30 a.m. and the race will begin at 8:30 a.m. Even if you prefer not to race, come and cheer on the dogs and their humans as they complete the race course. It’s a fun time and you will see many breeds and breed mixes represented and ready to strut their stuff. All crowd friendly dogs on leash are invited.
