The KHS Homes for the Holidays kickoff is on Saturday December 5th, with free hot cider and a giving area to receive donations and assist those who want to help local animals in need this Christmas. “We want everyone to know that the Kingston Humane Society is more than a shelter for animals in need at Christmas time. We have our adoption centre as well as gift suggestions that make giving more meaningful. ” says Connie Ball executive director. “There are Our Best Friends Calendars, T-shirts, sling bags, re-useable cotton tote bags and pet safety lights that can be purchased. A selection of handmade items including knitted hats and scarves, mittens, slippers, cards, baby blankets and more are made by local volunteers who support the Humane Society.”
It’s always sad when an animal’s owner passes away and the animal is left on its own. That’s what happened to Ruckus. This sweet senior dog came to us in May as a stray, but we later found out that his owner had died, leaving Ruckus by himself. Ruckus was a gentle soul who loved attention. He quickly became the front office mascot and liked to greet people when they came into the shelter. Although about 10 years old, his gray muzzle was the only thing that gave a hint of his age. He loved to play and cuddle. Sadly, though, his age worked against him, as many people are not looking to adopt an older animal.
