Snowball and Shelby: Boyle County Humane Society Pets of the Week

Our featured pets this week are Shelby and Snowball.

Shelby is a pretty 10-month-old tabby and white cat. She was a stray that was brought to the humane society so she would be safe and out of the cold weather. Shelby is a gorgeous girl with big stunning eyes that reflect her inquisitive nature. She is a very friendly kitty that enjoys attention and petting. Shelby is doing fine, after a short adjustment period, settling into one of our kitty condos and sharing space with other adult cats. This sweet girl is ready to make both a loving and beautiful companion if you choose her for adoption.

Snowball is a cute 2-year-old yellow lab mix. He weighs 40 pounds, so he’s smaller and more compact than the average lab. Snowball came from a situation where he was not getting the basic care he needed, and when he first came to the humane society he was scared and did not trust people. But with some TLC and quite a few treats he has made a wonderful turnaround and is now a happy dog. He gets along great with other dogs during play sessions. Give Snowball a home with structure and love, the things that were missing from his past, and he will be your forever friend in return.

Ring in the New Year by giving yourself and your dog a great gift and attend our DBCHS-sponsored obedience class this Saturday at 12:30 p.m. The class is held inside the service department at the Stuart Powell Ford Dealership on the U.S. 127 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. If you would like to attend 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. We hope to see you on Saturday.
