Our pets of the week are Gretel and Liam. Gretel is a cute, 12-week-old buff-colored kitten. She’s very sweet and loves to be held. Gretel has been at the shelter for several weeks and is now big enough for adoption. Can you give this pretty girl a loving home?
 Liam is a darling 10-week-old shepherd mix puppy. He is one of a litter of seven puppies found in a box in the middle of the road. This precious little fellow and his six sisters deserve forever homes where they will receive plenty of love and attention. If you are considering adding a pet to your family, please come to our adoption center on the Danville bypass next to the fairgrounds and visit the beautiful animals waiting for new homes. You may also preview many of our available pets at our website
Our next obedience class will be 12:30 p.m. Saturday at Stuart Powell Ford on the Danville bypass. The class, taught by dog trainer Cheri Carbone, is free for anyone who has adopted from a shelter or rescue. Others are welcome to join in for a small donation to the humane society.
The humane society needs volunteers to help on weekend afternoons at our adoption center at the PetSmart at Brannon Crossing in Nicholasville. To learn how you can help with the rewarding work of placing homeless animals with their new forever families, contact our volunteer coordinator by e-mailing
The humane society welcomes donations of Purina puppy chow and Purina cat food and kitten chow along with bleach, paper towels, laundry detergent, dish detergent and hand soap. we always need used towels and blankets. Donations to the shelter are greatly appreciated.
