Do you really want a dog for a pet?
In this part of Kentucky dogs require routine checkups and medication
for diseases like heartworm and rabies. A pet dog can be a loving family
member, but like all family members they require some extra attention
Does a dog really want you for an
owner? Dogs are social animals (That's why they're such good pets!),
and that means that they need an owner who will spend time with them.
Some dogs need play time, others just need your company, but they all
need more than just food and water.
Why choose a cat or dog at the shelter?
Many of the dogs at the shelter had previous owners who simply neglected
them or couldn't take care of them, and so they were either dropped off
or released into the county. Adopting a shelter animal not only gives
that dog or cat a new home, but can help break the cycle of homeless puppies
and kittens that adds to the problem of stray animals in the county.
Finally, shelter adoption is a bargain. The adoption
fee for dogs or cats from the shelter is $70.00, which includes:
- Physical exam/initial check-up
- Rabies vaccination
- Parvo-Distemper vaccination
- Spay-Neuter surgery
