Jasmine is an 8 year old Rottweiler from the Connecticut Humane Society who is looking for a new home where she can relax and take a nap next to you and walk outside every day. She is very sweet but lets you know when she wants to be petted by banging her head against your hand or knees. Her favorite activity on walks is sniffing anything and everything in the grass. Jas would prefer a house with few or no stairs because she has arthritis. She would also like to be your only dog ​​because she loves people so much, but can be open to being friends with a cat. She is on a special diet to prevent bladder stones (and has had it surgically removed at the CHS veterinary service), but she doesn’t mind. This happy woman just wants people to love and be there all the time. Visit CThumane.org/adopt to learn more. An online request can be found in the profile of each animal.

Kentucky Humane Society welcomes animals from Hurricane Ida https://hsmcohio.com/kentucky-humane-society-welcomes-animals-from-hurricane-ida/ https://hsmcohio.com/kentucky-humane-society-welcomes-animals-from-hurricane-ida/#respond Thu, 23 Sep 2021 14:06:00 +0000 https://hsmcohio.com/kentucky-humane-society-welcomes-animals-from-hurricane-ida/ JEFFERSONTOWN, Ky. – The Kentucky Humane Society has welcomed more than 60 animals that were sheltered in Louisiana before Hurricane Ida rocked the state.

JEFFERSONTOWN, Ky. – The Kentucky Humane Society has welcomed more than 60 animals that were sheltered in Louisiana before Hurricane Ida rocked the state.


What would you like to know

  • The Kentucky Humane Society has welcomed more than 60 animals displaced by Hurricane Ida
  • KHS tries to get animals adopted as quickly as possible
  • All animals were assessed, updated on their shots and spayed or neutered
  • At least 60% of KHS animals come from overcrowded shelters

Welcoming these cats and dogs has given them a much better chance of finding a new home and maybe even surviving. But now the Kentucky Humane Society is packed, so staff are hoping to get the animals adopted quickly.

Royals is one of the new dogs, and she’s as happy as she can be now, said Andrea Blair, director of public relations marketing for the Kentucky Humane Society.

“They’ve definitely had a few stressful days to get here,” said Blair.

It has been a long journey for the animals, and could have ended abruptly much sooner.

“These animals are lucky to be outside of these flood zones and all the terrible things that are happening in Louisiana,” Blair said. “We have taken in over 60 animals from overcrowded shelters. This allows shelters in Louisiana to then make room for animals that were lost to the storm or had to be returned after the storm. “

The animals were all saved by the Bissell Pet Foundation. They were first taken to an emergency shelter in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

“When it comes to things like hurricanes and other types of disasters, animal shelters are really on the front lines. So when they are overcrowded, they often have to make difficult decisions, ”she said.

Tough decisions can mean slaughtering animals.

But now that the 30 or so cats and 30 dogs are at the Humane Society Pet Retreat in Jeffersontown, they’ve tried to find a new home.

Blair said she really hoped people would give them that chance.

“Honestly, that’s a lot. We probably already have at least 300 other animals in care right now. So when we take in animals like this, we want to get them to work as quickly as possible, and then we really want people to come out and adopt, ”she said. “We have a few that are shy and temperamental, but overall they are very good animals. So they’re just looking for a second chance.

“When you adopt from an animal shelter, you help save lives,” said Blair.

All animals were assessed, updated on their shots and spayed or neutered.

The Kentucky Humane Society is Kentucky’s largest destination shelter, which means when other shelters are overcrowded, they turn to KHS for help.

At least 60% of the Kentucky Humane Society’s animals come from overcrowded shelters.

FAIRMONT, W.Va. – The Marion County Humane Society is moving forward with plans for a new facility.

Christina Mickey presents plans for new building to Marion County Commissioners

Humane Society volunteers on Wednesday asked Marion County commissioners to consider helping fund the cost of a new building.

Volunteers said the total cost of a new building would be approximately $ 1,758,000. The humanitarian company plans to use the funds from the domains given to it to cover the $ 350,000 of the project. A contractor for the company said he plans to completely demolish the old building and rebuild it on the same land. The project would take, at most, 9 months to complete.

Their current building is 2,900 square feet. The plan of the new building reflects 12,672 square feet. Volunteers said this project had been in the works for 6 years.

Marion County Commissioners said they did not have the budget to fund their entire project, but said they would help fund the project and suggested that volunteers find more people who could do a Don.

“When I came to council years ago as commissioner, they weren’t supporting the humanitarian society,” said Randy Elliott, Marion County commissioner. “We thought it was important to help them too, so we’re contributing, I think it’s about $ 60,000 a year just to help human society. And we’ve helped them with other projects that they’ve had in the past, but to help them build the new facility that’s going to happen. At what level this time we do not know.

“Basically right now we’re just going, because the talks are happening so early, just asking for some kind of contribution,” said Christina Mickey, a volunteer with the Marion County Humane Society. “I know that city councils and commissions are overloaded; we are stretched; everyone’s running out of steam, but whatever they can contribute we’re going to ask, you know, not a specific amount right now, but hoping they’ll consider it in their new budgets.

Donations to the Marion County Humane Society can be made through the company’s PayPal, here.

The Marion County Humane Society was founded on August 27, 1945 by Florence “Flossie” T. Flemming and 13 other members of the community. This is a non-profit 501 (c) 3 “No-Kill” shelter for lost and adoptable cats and dogs.

Albuquerque, NM, junior Evan Pfeiffer welcomed Ghost, a Siberian husky, for a few weeks after learning that the Humane Society of Central Texas was reaching maximum capacity.

“Someone told me the Humane Society was at full capacity and they were potentially going to shoot dogs,” Pfeiffer said. “I walked in with the intention of getting him adopted, but he was just a little bigger than I could have given him in an apartment.”

According to the Humane Society website, animals can be placed for a short time: 24 hours or one to six weeks.

“I kept it as long as possible, but then I had to leave town,” Pfeiffer said. “I sent him back to the Humane Society after two weeks… but he was adopted within the two days he was there.”

San Antonio sophomore Megan Huff also welcomed a dog through the Humane Society over Labor Day weekend, giving the dog a short break away from its crate.

“My roommates and I decided to host because we thought it would be a fun bonding experience and we wanted to help a dog in need,” Huff said.

While students living on campus cannot accommodate animals, students living off campus in apartments or houses can often welcome or adopt animals if their lease allows them to do so.

“I think if you can foster, you should,” Huff said. “Yes that was a lot, and I don’t know if I could do it again with my current workload, but if you can you should do it because it’s important and fun to have a pet. “

Through the Humane Society, those hosting will have a weekly check-in with a Host Family Liaison from The Humane Society of Central Texas to ensure the situation is well suited.

“Animals don’t care if you live in an apartment or a house, if you have a garden, what kind of work you have or what time you wake up in the morning,” the Humane Society said on its website. Web.

While fostering benefits the animal, the animal can also help students feel comfortable. According to a 2017 academic article in the Journal of Modern Psychological Studies published by the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, professors at Troy University wrote that “animals have been shown to have positive effects on human beings. people with a variety of ailments including depression, stress and homesickness ”.

Animals, in the right situation, can help students relieve stress and improve their mental health.

“Pet therapy can be helpful in de-stigmatizing mental illness and increasing the chances that students will seek advice,” the academic article said.

Baylor students who have been placed in foster care have felt the benefits of having a dog, even if only for a short time.

“It was great fun having a dog because I have three dogs at home and I miss being with them,” Huff said. “Not having pets in college is sad, but having a companion by my side for a weekend was something I loved to do.”

Those interested in fostering, volunteering, or adopting through The Humane Society can visit its website for more information. Additionally, the Humane Society of Central Texas is hosting a 5k Zombie Race on October 30, featuring a costume contest for humans and dogs.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – The Kentucky Humane Society has said that a malnourished puppy that was found taped to a box on Friday has worsened.

According to the organization, the puppy, who has since been called “Liam”, was hospitalized after testing positive for parvovirus on Tuesday morning.

“Our team rushed him to a veterinary hospital, where he is receiving 24-hour emergency care in their quarantine ward,” the Kentucky Humane Society wrote in a statement. “Parvo is an extremely serious and highly transmissible virus that attacks unvaccinated dogs. Symptoms include vomiting and severe diarrhea. Parvo causes intestinal damage, leading to severe dehydration and electrolyte imbalances, and it can lead to sepsis, a fatal blood infection.

The agency says the infection could well prove fatal.

“Since Liam’s immune system is already so compromised by demodectic mange and poor nutrition, we don’t know if he has the strength to cope,” KHS said. “Please keep Liam – an Irish name meaning ‘guardian’ – in your thoughts and prayers. “

The Kentucky Humane Society reminds the public that all puppies should be vaccinated to protect against parvovirus.

The agency says Liam was discovered by a KHS employee on Friday. It was inside a cardboard box that had been placed near the agency’s recycle bin. The box was taped with ventilation holes and the words “FOUND HELP ME” were written on it. At the time, Liam’s skin was inflamed, raw, and swollen from an infection, and most of his hair was missing. The agency says he was so weak from the infection that he was unable to stand on his own.

TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) – The Toledo Humane Society recently received a special grant to help find homes for even more shelter dogs. The money will be used to continue efforts to remove tags from mixed breed dogs.

Experts say guessing a dog’s breeding can sometimes make it difficult to find a home. Kristen McCann is the Shelter Manager at THS.

“Studies have shown that visual identification in mixed breed dogs is very imprecise, even among animal welfare professionals. It has been shown that we can be wrong up to 75% of the time. So, since less than 1% of a dog’s genome is what it will look like, that doesn’t do us or the dogs justice in guessing. “

The shelter welcomes more than a thousand dogs of all shapes, sizes and breeds each year.

“Anything we can do to help families look at dogs as individuals will find the right solution for the dog and the adopter,” says McCann.

Abbey Hall is the director of development for the refuge. She says that sometimes good dogs are ignored simply because of a breed tag.

“If you take out the breed tags it allows people to come here and connect with a dog based on their personality, when I want a certain breed because they have those qualities. This allows them to enter and organically meet the animals for adoption, and not be judgmental about a tag.

THS removed breed labeling for dogs from the shelter a few years ago. A $ 1,000 grant from the Animal Farm Foundation will help continue this work.

“That’s what it’s all about in our field, connecting animals to the right family with no perceived breed label,” says Hall.

Experts say that if you really want to know your dog’s breeds, they suggest you buy a dog DNA test.

EASTHAMPTON, MA (WGGB / WSHM) – The Dakin Humane Society hosted a Barks & Brews fundraiser for residents of western Massachusetts and their furry friends. The fundraiser took place in Easthampton at the Fort Hill Brewery.

The funds raised will help offset the cost of housing, treating and caring for thousands of animals each year.

It will also benefit a number of programs and services such as the Pet Food Assistance Program, the Plus Clinic, the Vaccination Clinic, and the Community Sterilization and Sterilization Clinic.

At the event, there was a hot dog tasting competition for the puppies. The dogs were able to cool off in the splash zone and had mini dog training sessions.

Western Mass News jumped into the action, and we spoke with Stacy Price, Director of Development and Marketing at Dakin, who shared her enthusiasm for bringing pets and their owners back to the event, all in support of a good cause.

“Dakin is very keen on keeping people and animals together and celebrating this bond that we share. So we wanted to have an event that would allow people to just be with their dogs and be with their friends at the same time and have a good time, ”Price said.

Through a partnership with Heartland Humane Society, new pet owners can redeem a coupon at Animal Crackers after adopting an animal from the shelter. Lindburg said she still sees people walk in with these coupons every day.

While the business side of the pet industry is doing well, new pet owners themselves may be the ones who are struggling. Animal cracker sales manager Miriam Orzol said she has spoken to customers who see behavioral issues with their pets.

Orzol said many people adopted pets while stranded at home and looking for a mate. While she said it’s a good thing overall, pets and owners can run into issues as daily routines change and owners return to work.

Animal Crackers even started curating their selection to include treats and toys related to potential behavioral issues new pet owners face.

For example, the store is expanding its selection of soothing treats. Orzol said new pets may experience separation anxiety as their owners start leaving the house more often than they were when the pandemic started. This can lead to animals chewing on sofas and tearing up pillows and other items around the house.

Orzol believes the United States idealized the idea of ​​having a dog, especially a puppy. As a result, some owners do not always know what they are doing. It’s dangerous to have a pet for the first time during a global crisis, according to Orzol. However, Lindburg added that the pandemic has benefited the adoption process as shelters are no longer crowded and people are forced to wait for an appointment to have a pet.

WILTON – A proposal for a new regional headquarters for the Connecticut Humane Society along Highway 7 was generally supported by the Planning and Zoning Commission, but was rejected by neighboring residents earlier this week.

The building will be over 14,200 square feet and will include animal space, an animal care clinic and an enclosed outdoor space for dogs kept at the facility.

After an initial presentation with the Wilton Inland Wetlands Commission, representatives of the CT Humane Society proposal sat down in front of the Zoning Commission members and detailed the topography of the land, nearby traffic, material selection and other specificities of the site.


President Rick Tomasetti said the initial pre-bid process with the commission went “as well as we might expect”.

The zoning commission will need to authorize a text amendment to their current regulations so that the nonprofit can move forward with their plan. Tomasetti appeared open to amending the text, adding that it was in line with the city’s conservation and development plan to be “a little more forward-thinking”.

Other members of the committee agreed.

Commission member Christopher Pagliaro called the proposal a “model application”. Commissioner Eric Fanwick also found the proposal satisfactory.
