Pets of the Week – May 6, 2022

Published 7:00 am Saturday, May 7, 2022

Our pets of the week are Daisy and Jett.

Daisy is a big, beautiful girl about two years old. This mixed-breed pup is black and brown with a fluffy tail and a giant smile. That fluffy tail never stops wagging because Daisy is a happy gal! She gets along with other dogs in doggy playgroups and loves to run around the yard with her friends. One of her favorite things about playgroup is the kiddie pool: Daisy gets a kick out of getting in and out of the pool between romps with her dog pals. Daisy will do well in a home that provides her with plenty of space and exercise. If you are looking for an upbeat companion, Daisy might be the dog for you!

Jett is a handsome Shepherd mix with one blue eye and one brown eye, giving him a unique and striking appearance. He’s about three years old and a total sweetheart! He loves being loved and will nudge your hand to get petted.

Jett must have had a family previously because he is well-behaved and has some training. He knows how to sit, stay and lay down – he’s very smart! Jett walks on a leash well, too, no pulling at all. Jett is an all-around good dog and will make an excellent companion for almost anyone!

Both dogs are fixed, vaccinated, microchipped, and ready to go home. If you are interested in adopting, please bring your family and dog for a meet and greet Monday – Friday between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. Before coming out, give us a call to ensure the dog you’re interested in is still available, and complete an online application to save time: https://bit.ly/2Qo4EfE. Can’t make it to the shelter during open hours? Email me at karikuh@dbchs.org to make an appointment.

Approximately 75-95 million pet cats and 30-80 million community cats live in America. Considering there are only 120 million households in the U.S., you can see we have a problem: it is mathematically impossible to find indoor homes for all of the cats living here! That is why DBCHS makes access to spay/neuter surgery available through Happy Paws’ low-cost, high-quality clinic and encourages people to leave healthy outdoor cats where they are.

DBCHS’s Community Cat Program provides the limited and necessary intervention that allows outdoor cats to live healthy and happy lives and – more importantly – prevents shelter euthanasia. If you or someone you know is feeding outdoor cats in Boyle County, get them spayed/neutered and vaccinated at no cost: email dbchs@bellsouth.net to make an appointment.
