Pet: black and white small dogHJ’s Pet of the Month
The June Pet of the Month is Hero. He is a 19 lb Beagle/Border Collie mix that is 7 years old. His primary fur color is black and a white secondary color. Hero is great on a leash and does well with other dogs. He likes dry food, but isn’t interested in wet food. He does extremely well with vet techs which comes in handy for his check-ups.

The Lexington Humane Society has two adoption locations, Old Frankfort Pike (main location) and the Hamburg PetSmart. Hamburg Journal’s Pet of the Month is available for adoption at the Hamburg PetSmart location. Hurry over and meet your next furry family member.

Fido Fest
The Summit partnered with local friends and retailers to create a day that celebrated our fluffy friends and benefits Lexington Humane Society. Families enjoyed pet selfie stations, kiddo activities, food and drink vendors, retailer pop-up shops and live entertainment. We also spotted our neighbors from Southern Barker.

Woodford Wag
Last month the Woodford Humane Society hosted their annual Woodford Wag that raised money for the shelter. Families enjoyed a casual walk through Falling Springs Park and games with their furry friend.
