The No Kill Central Kentucky Regional Humane Society would like to express our sincere appreciation to all our patrons and volunteers the evening of April 25 for making our first annual SPAY-ghetti Benefit Dinner so successful. Attendance was wonderful, the food was superb, the fellowship so warm and the giving so generous. Thanks to the Lancaster Christian Church for the use of their wonderful facilities. High “paws up” to the cook, Joyce Marshall, for preparing the delicious meal and to our amazing group of volunteer event staff: Jane and Woody Prather, Judy Adams, Ronnie Baker, Jennifer Grubbs, Trayce Poynter, Teresa Moberly, Chelsey Moberly, Kayde Gilbert, Ward Brown, Abigail Hodge and Judith Hodge.

Our featured pets this week are Grayson and Muffin. Grayson is an outgoing 1-year-old cat. He has a handsome, bluish-gray coat color and a cute bobbed tail. Although Grayson came to the humane society as a stray, he is the friendliest boy you will meet. Grayson considers everyone to be his buddy and he'd love to be your special companion. Muffin is a sweet 3½-month-old white and brown puppy. She appears to be a mixture of hound and collie. Muffin didn't have the benefit of a lot of one-on-one attention before she came to us, but she is a very loving girl and will blossom with some TLC in her forever home.

February is National Spay and Neuter Month, and the Danville-Boyle County Humane Society and local veterinarians are asking pet owners to spay or neuter their cats, kittens, puppies and dogs to help eliminate the pet overpopulation crisis in Danville and surrounding counties. “Many people do not realize that there are great health benefits of spaying and neutering cats and dogs,” says DBCHS Director Kathy Nelsen. “Spayed and neutered animals have less desire to roam, lower risk of testicular and ovarian cancer, and altered animals have decreased aggressive behavioral problems.

LANCASTER — A plethora of low-cost ways to spay and neuter pets will soon be available to Garrard County residents. Currently, Garrard has no regular options for getting dogs and cats spayed and neutered on a tight budget. But the options are scheduled to begin arriving soon from two different animal-focused organizations. The Garrard County Animal Shelter is helping to coordinate monthly low-cost spay/neuter clinics that will begin in March, while the Central Kentucky Regional Humane Society is preparing to hand out low-cost spay/neuter vouchers.
