Kiss Me, Kate – the dog, not the play


Kate, a 9 year old Rottweiler, has been at the shelter since November.  A loving and exuberant canine, she is lavish with her love and her kisses.  She is seeking her forever home and is hoping to find one with older children and room to play.  In good health, she is robust and ready to go – loves walks, and her toys.

Technically classified as a senior dog, she is eligible for a discounted adoption fee as an added incentive to take this kissy girl into your loving care.  Although Rottweilers frequently evoke fear and anxiety, Laura from the Humane Society spoke to this popular but unfair connotation.  She indicated that no dog is predisposed to aggression – and this is true of Kate.  She is a calm and well mannered girl who is undeserving of this reputation.  A “smiley” dog, with her tongue lolling, she is fun and sweet.  For more information on Kate, you can go to her profile here.

Currently, the Humane Society is not open to in-person visits and the adoption application must be submitted in advance.  Adoption forms can be accessed online or you can go in person to 962 Second Line East to obtain a paper copy.  Complete the application and submit it to the Humane Society, and then you will be contacted to arrange an in person meeting with your potential new love.

If you are not in a position to take on a pet full-time or are unsure if you can fit a pet into your life, the Humane Society is also recruiting foster homes to assist with caring for pets, on a short-term basis.  For more information on how to become a foster home to a pet in need click here.

Other ways that you can help include making a donation of cash or food items – either kibble or wet food (pate is preferred).

Kate, the loving Katie girl, is looking for you to love her forever.  Start your application today!
