Ketchikan Humane Society - Blog Post 1

Posted on July 15, 2013 at 1:11 PM
The 4th of July float felt like a success to us, even though we didn't win any prizes or make national headlines. We learned a few things: start earlier, add a lot more bling, have more people on the float, let the float come first and the dogs can walk behind, and make the music a little louder. Next year we'll know how to do it better, but we felt like it was a good effort for our first time. We had lots of positive responses, and one family even said that they were going to buy from a breeder, but decided after seeing our float to call us and look into adoption. YAY!  Many thanks to KHS husbands Brian, Eric, and Ozzy, and to Alex and Woody, who helped us with the work. It took a lot of their time, but as one wife pointed out about her rescue hobby, "Honey, it's cheaper than pull tabs!"
 
Several KHS rescues went to new homes this week: Davenport, Phoebe, Charm, Buzz Bomb, and Gingersnap are all on trial runs in their new homes, and things are looking positive for them. What's not to like? They are the sweetest, best-trained, most socialized pets in the world, as far as we're concerned. A giant Paws Up to the families who chose to make adoption their option!
 
 We have several kittens and one adult cat available for adoption after they've been spayed or neutered. Check our website for photos of the soon-to-be-available adoptees.
 
We also have the nicest little dog coming available as soon as he is housebroken. Buster Brown is an All-American Mutt, probably some kind of Sheltie mix. His foster family is already in love with him. He's five years old. He was never allowed inside during his previous life, so he had no idea when he arrived that he was not allowed to lift his leg just anywhere. His entire philosophy was, "If you didn't want me to pee on the refrigerator, then what did you put it there for?"  He is making progress, however, and as soon as we know he can be trusted indoors, he will be ready for a new home. He's already neutered, but he'll need a dental, so his adoption fee will be about $150.
 
Don't forget about the Third Annual Ketchikan Humane Society Fundraiser, to be held Saturday, September 21, 2013 at the Ted Ferry Civic Center. Lots of great food, beer and wine, and the most fabulous silent auction items ever. We owe a debt of gratitude to the many businesses and individuals who are so generous with their donations. We rely completely on this generosity to fund our rescue efforts. All KHS board members and volunteers donate their time, so all the money earned goes to care for the animals. Save the date, and come have fun!
 
We've already rescued seventy animals so far this year!
