Pets of the Week, Feb. 5, 2020

Our featured pets this week are Barney and Lily. 

Barney

Barney is a friendly 2-year-old cat with handsome black and white markings. He was a stray that was brought to the humane society for a fresh start. Barney has a beautiful face with expressive eyes and a relaxed demeanor. He is living in one of our community kitty rooms with several other adult cats and has adjusted very well. Barney has been neutered and brought up to date on his vaccinations and is ready to come and be a loving member of your family.

Lily is a gorgeous 4-year-old Great Pyrenees mix. She has a lovely white coat with big, beautiful brown eyes. Lily was a stray and her previous owner has not been found so she has been spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped to prepare her for a new home. Lily is quite the social butterfly. She loves to meet new people and plays well with other dogs. Lily will climb fences if left alone so she will need supervision as she adjusts to a new home. Come spend some time with this special girl and see if she is the perfect match for your family.

Lily

February is Spay/Neuter Awareness Month. There are several excellent reasons for having your pet spayed or neutered. Altering your cat or dog will help reduce the number of homeless animals, improve your pet’s health and reduce unruly behaviors in your pet. Altered animals live longer and healthier lives and make better pets. Spayed and neutered animals will not be contributing to the problem of pet overpopulation that we witness every day at the humane society. You can help by always spaying and neutering your pets and educate your children, friends, family members and co-workers about pet overpopulation, adoption and the importance of spaying and neutering.

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.
