Every year, the Kentucky Humane Society assists hundreds of scouts of all ages in earning a badge or award.  Created back in 2007, our Girl Scout program was an instant success.  We only had 157 Girl Scouts go through our workshops that first year but the news spread and since then, we have worked with at least 400 girls every year.  Success lies in the natural draw that children have towards animals and the simple mission statement of the Girl Scouts:  to help girls become confident and compassionate, making the world a better place.  The Girl Scouts needed an animal connection in the community.  KHS needs young advocates for our homeless animals.  It was a perfect partnership.

Is your dog bored? Sometimes our animals need stimulation, even when we don't have time for play. One option to keep them occupied and happy is a puzzle toy. Puzzle toys make your dog think about how to get to a treat. The right toy can keep your dog occupied for quite some time. While there are dozens of puzzle toys on the market, you can make your own, as well.

When I was 13 my surprise birthday present was a Miniature Schnauzer puppy. I wanted a dog for years and finally I got one! I was ecstatic! A few months later, my mom enrolled us in a private behavior class from a trainer who was “recommended.”

I’ll never forget the feeling of terror as I gazed upon my lifeless dog, Lulu.

It was the holidays. My family had gathered at my house to exchange gifts and unbeknownst to me, Lulu had been given a forbidden gift: a tiny rawhide bone. Rawhide isn’t allowed at my house. I have experienced problems with it before. It was completely new for Lulu who grabbed it and ran to another room to relish her prize. I suddenly noticed that Lulu was not with us…and that never happens. She loves to be right in the mix of things. I got up to search for her and found her in the corner of a bedroom…not breathing.
