Kentucky Humane Society offers socialization classes for puppies adopted during the pandemic
The Kentucky Humane Society is now offering Puppy and “Teenage” Socials for puppies age 8 weeks to 6 months. The first classes start Saturday, October 3, 2020, at the KHS Sam Swope Pet Retreat in Jeffersontown.
So many puppies have found their forever home during the pandemic – but just like us, they’ve had limited opportunities to socialize. Proper socialization is immensely important to helping ensure your puppy will grow into a happy, well-adjusted and confident dog – which helps reduce future problems such as fear, anxiety and anti-social behavior.
Subaru of America and Neil Huffman Subaru are proud to partner with the Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) during Subaru’s October “loves pets” month.
As part of the celebration, Subaru of America and Neil Huffman Subaru will donate $100 toward the adoption fee of one select adult dog each day in October at KHS, or $3,100 in total.
“We are thrilled to partner with Subaru to bring attention to a different dog each day who is seeking a loving family. Thanks to their generosity, a total of 31 dogs in October will have their adoption fees lowered by $100 – helping adult dogs get adopted faster and providing savings for families,” said Robin Vincent, KHS Shelter Operations Director.
Old dogs have something to wag about this summer, as The Grey Muzzle Organization announces the recipients of its annual grants, and senior dogs assisted by the Kentucky Humane Society are among the winners.
KHS will use the $7,575 grant to help an estimated 51 financially struggling families keep their senior dogs happy, healthy and in their homes. The grant will provide veterinary care and other critical support to senior dogs whose owners live in poverty or who are experiencing economic hardship because of COVID-19.
