New Arrival
Our neighbors at Evans Mill Cattle Company welcomed the arrival of a new litter of Kangal puppies. Solar Equinox Betsy gave birth to 7 rambunctious pups (5 boys and 2 girls).

HJ Winter Pet Choice
The HJ Winter Pet Choice is a combo pack, Ken and Karen. Ken is a 10 year old beagle mix that weighs 20 lbs. His primary color is black and secondary color is white. Karen is also a 10 year old beagle mix and weighs 17.8 lbs. Her primary color is black and secondary white. These dogs are two peas in a pod. They are extremely sweet and loving. They have created a strong bond and want to find a home where they can preferably be adopted together.

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.
