DBCHS Pets of the week, June 5

Our featured pets this week are DeDee and Blue.

DeDee is a pretty 1-year-old dilute tortoiseshell. Her coat color is a light gray with splotches of orange, and she has beautiful amber eyes. DeDee was found as a stray in town, she probably slipped out a door but her owner has not come looking for her so DeDee is ready to make a fresh start with a new family. She is very friendly and does great with other cats. DeDee has been spayed and with her relaxed personality, she should fit right in and make a purrfect feline addition to most any home.

Blue is a handsome 10-month-old mixed breed dog. He may be part retriever, shepherd and Pit Bull, a true All-American mutt. Blue was a stray and his owner has not been found, so he is now off stray hold and ready for adoption. Blue is a gorgeous dog with sweet eyes. He’s a big boy at 70 pounds and may grow just a bit more as he fully matures. Blue has a sweet personality, does well on leash, and will make a great jogging buddy and all-around friend. If you are looking for a loyal companion come and meet Blue and is if he’s your perfect match.

June is National Adopt-A-Shelter Cat month. Now is the height of “kitten season” when animal shelters everywhere have an increased intake of cats and kittens. To help as many kitties as possible find their forever homes, the DBCHS has reduced the adoption fee for all cats and kittens to just $25. This includes the spay/neuter surgery, feline leukemia test and first vaccinations and deworming. For their safety, all adopted kitties must go home in a pet carrier. Please bring your own, or a cardboard carrier can be purchased at the time of adoption. If you’ve been thinking of adopting a cat or kitten now is the time to do it. You will save a life and gain a forever feline friend and also make space for the humane society to help another kitty in need.

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.
