The pets featured this week are Nacho and Elsa.

Do you want to build a snowman? Our Elsa can’t help you (no opposable thumbs), but she will be by your side as you let off steam in the snow or relax by the fireside. Elsa is about two years old and came to the shelter as a stray.

No one claimed her, so now Elsa is ready to show up, step into her power, and become something new.

Elsa is a warm and friendly girl who enjoys belly rubs, squeaky toys, basking in the sun, and tasty treats. She has a pretty stocky figure and the best tilt of her head ever. And, like her namesake, she has a courageous mind and takes on life’s challenges in stride. Once you meet Elsa, she will steal your heart and never let go.

Nacho is a 7 month old beagle whose owner has undergone a dramatic change in life circumstances. Nacho’s sister has found a new home through direct placement site, and Nacho is still looking.

According to his former human, Nacho is “an excellent dog, energetic and friendly.” He gets along well with my children, including my three year old who has special needs.

Life at the shelter is tough for even the most easy-going puppy, and Nacho was nervous and calm at first, unsure of his new surroundings. Now that he’s settled down a bit, we can tell he’s all that and a bag of tortilla chips too!

Nacho loves to kiss, cuddle, and be adorable in general. Bring this little snack into your life, and you will no doubt be satisfied.

The two dogs are fixed, microchipped and vaccinated; meet them on weekdays between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. and bring your family and puppy too. Call 859.238.1117 to make sure they are still available and complete an online application to save time: Can’t make it to the shelter during opening hours?

Research shows that, like Nacho, most animals experience high levels of stress in a shelter. DBCHS is looking for short-term foster homes for Thanksgiving and Christmas so that every homeless animal can spend the holidays in the comfort of a warm home. We will make sure to find you a suitable pet for your lifestyle and provide you with all the supplies you need.
