Clark County Humane Society pet of the week: Daijon.
Oh man, am I a cute little guy or what? My name is Daijon - it means "gift of hope" - and it fits me. My growth was stunted due to severe illness when I was a few weeks old. I've fully recovered, but I'm quite tiny, except for my heart, which is just full of love. I will always be a small, cuddly, bundle of energy.
If you have room in your heart and home and would promise to love me, I think you should stop in to meet me. If I'm not exactly what you're looking for, I'll bet one of the others here will be just right. If you think you could provide a good home for me or any of the other pets here, go to the website and check out the pictures and descriptions. Some of the cats cost $30 (many only $10) to adopt. Most of the dogs cost only $60. You can apply to adopt online or in person at the shelter.
There are 39 cats or kittens and 34 dogs or puppies here now. Surely we will have one that would be just right for you.
We have a program called "We Love You 2." Each of our cats that are 2 years or older cost only $10 to adopt. We also are offering any two cats for the price of one during this time. This includes a lot of cats that have already been spayed/neutered, blood-tested, vaccinated, micro-chipped and treated for internal and external parasites. If you were thinking of getting a cat or two, this is a great time to do it.
If you've not been to a shelter because you felt they would be sad, dreary, dead-end places, you really need to stop in at CCHS! This shelter is a bright, clean and happy place where the pets are well-cared for and loved while they wait for their new homes. CCHS is proud to be a no-kill shelter. Our service area includes Clark, Wood, Jackson and Chippewa counties. We are the fourth largest shelter in the state, and we're still growing. We'd be glad to give you a tour of the building and show you the pets available for adoption too. We know you will be very happy with what you'll see here.
If you love animals and want to help them, it's time for you to get on our team here. Just contact us and we'll set up a time for you to learn about CCHS and how you can help us to help the animals.
