Drake is a large mixed breed who just recently celebrated his first birthday at Northshore Humane Society. He is very affectionate and cuddly. If you’re not careful, you’ll end up with lots of kisses. Drake came to our shelter in April as part of an unwanted litter, whose owner just couldn’t afford to care them. We have since learned that Drake is housebroken, knows basic commands, is treat motivated, and is very loyal. Drake is currently in a foster home waiting to find his forever home.

Visit www.NorthshoreHumane.org to adopt or see more information on Drake! The mission of NHS is to be the premier organization dedicated to enhancing and saving the lives of pets in the Northshore region through community engagements, adoption, spay and neuter programs, and sheltering.

This sleek girl is Macchiato, a one-year-old kitty looking for her forever home at Northshore Humane Society. Our adoption team likes to call Macchiato “Supermom” because she not only nursed her own kittens until they were weened and ready for adoption, she also gladly accepted another set of homeless kittens brought to our rescue! As you can see in her pictures, she is a very personable and curious cat.

She has the most gorgeous markings and striking green eyes! Macchiato would love a home where she can explore new things and go on mini-adventures or play with her human siblings.

Pet Tip of the Week/Wildlife Lookout

pet-animal-control-keep-your-dog-leashed-pick-up

 

The more that our beautiful parish grows, the more that displacement of local wildlife occurs.  For this reason, it is a very good idea to follow the leash laws that are in place for pets, especially at night, when the nocturnal animals tend to be more active.  It’s nice to think about our pets making animal friends with the non-domesticated animals, but it doesn’t always work that way.  Opossums and raccoons can be particularly vicious with both cats and dogs, causing injuries from bites, scratches, etc.  Non-domesticated animals may also carry diseases, bacteria or parasites that could cause other issues besides wounds.
The other aspect of allowing pets to roam is that they tend to relieve themselves in often inopportune locations, and the owner has no way of knowing if the pet is not being watched. If the owner is not aware of where there animal defecated, then the owner will probably not pick it up either, which is a problem.  It is unfortunate that pets are no longer allowed at public events in Covington, but one memory of the Farmer’s Market several years ago was of a woman who literally dragged a large yellow lab through the market while it was “doing its business,” dropping little bits everywhere.   Sadly, the woman ignored the fact, neglecting to pick up after her animal.   Please Be A Responsible Pet Owner!
