Pets of the week: Dozer and Zoe

BY KARI KUH

Our featured pets this week are Dozer and Zoe.

Dozer is a sweet, silly boxer mix with a muzzle that appears lightened from age. Don’t be fooled, though; this cutie is only a year old.

He was recently neutered and had to wear a cone of shame for a week while his sutures healed. Dozer was a good boy and handled the situation well, remaining happy-go-lucky even as he bumped the cone into all the things! Dozer has access to an outdoor section of his kennel but prefers to do his business in the yard — what a good boy! This block-headed doggo takes treats gently and loves to spend time with people.

Zoe is a gorgeous 3-year-old cattle dog whose owner recently passed away. True to her breed, she is alert, attentive, loyal, and protective; she can be wary at first but warms up quickly.

In her short time at the humane society, she’s established herself as the chief patroller of the backyard and likes to check the perimeters to make sure all is well.

Zoe is ready for a fresh start and would love a family who will help her thrive with vigorous exercise and activities that stimulate her active mind and body.

Both Dozer and Zoe are fixed, vaccinated, microchipped and ready to go home. Considering adoption? Complete an application online to save time: https://bit.ly/2Qo4EfE, and call us with any questions at 859-238-1117.

If these pups aren’t what you’re looking for, check out dbchs.home-home.org. Our direct placement adoption site currently has many dogs, cats, and kittens looking for new homes.

When we bring a dog or cat into our family, we intend for it to be “furever.” But things happen, and there are times when rehoming a pet may well be the most compassionate and responsible thing to do. That’s where the online service Home To Home™ comes in.

Here’s how it works: You’ll complete a pet profile and upload pictures of your pet. Once approved, your pet’s profile will be published on DBCHS’s Home To Home™ website and promoted on the DBCHS Facebook page, where we’re lucky to have a large, dynamic following. If someone is interested in your pet, you’ll receive an email from them that you can respond to privately.

Home To Home™ reduces animals’ anxiety by keeping them in a home and out of the shelter; plus, it gives potential adopters a chance to learn more about the pet directly from the people who know them the best. It also helps us reserve shelter resources for neglected, abandoned, injured, and helpless animals. Since we launched the program in February, we’ve helped people find new loving homes for more than 50 pets!

The Danville-Boyle County Humane Society is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) established in 1972 that promotes the humane treatment of animals through compassionate care, engagement, and support.
