Our Pet of the Week for this week is Kenai, the cutest little “Tripawd” you’ve ever seen! Kenai came to the shelter with a break to his rear leg. Thanks to funds generously donated to your Lincoln County Animal Shelter’s Medical Trust, Kenai was able to have surgery to remove the broken leg so that he could live a full, pain free life. Now Kenai has recovered from his surgery and he is ready to go to his forever home.
Kenai is a 3 month old, neutered, male Dobermann/Weimaraner mix. He’s already nearly 30 pounds so we expect him to grow into a very large dog. Kenai is very smart and attentive, loves other dogs and is respectful of cats. If you are interested in adopting Kenai, we recommend doing research into the care requirements for a three legged dog. These special needs pups often need to see their veterinarian more often than their 4 legged counterpart and this can mean higher vet bills than your average dog. Believe us when we tell you, Kenai is more than worth the extra effort and money it will take to keep him healthy and happy.
The fee to adopt Kenai is only $200.00, which includes a vet visit (generously supplied by our local veterinarians), microchip, flea treatment, wormer and vaccinations, two free training sessions with Dog E University’s Tammy Boysun, and a free bag of dog food courtesy of the Feed Corral, and all animals are spayed and neutered prior to adoption.
Please come and visit all the animals at your Lincoln County Animal Shelter, located at 510 NE Harney St. in Newport (just east of the Fairgrounds). Hours are: Tuesday through Friday 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Also, if you can help us restock our pet food pantry for our Meals on Wheels and Food Bank programs, that will really help. We need wet cat food and we distribute hundreds of pounds of pet food each month to those in need. For additional information on our available animals, or on volunteering, please call the Shelter during business hours at 265-6610 & press option 6.
