Kathy Lindakugel of the Steele County Humane Society was a guest this week on AM 1390's Talk of the Town. A check of the Steele County Humane Society web site shows a large uptick on cats available for adoption. You'll also notice several more dogs seeking homes as well.

This fall the Humane Society traveled to Texas to bring back animals from humane societies. This then freed up room for Texas pets that got separated from the owners during the hurricane. Of the 8 dogs brought to Owatonna, 6 of them have been adopted by their foster owners. A 7th one will probably be adopted as well. However, the foster mother of this dog got a surprise when this slender dog gave birth to 9 puppies last weekend. She's said to be excited but only plans to keep the mother. This means there will be 9 puppies looking for permanent homes by sometime near the end of the year.

This weekend the Humane Society is expected 3 part Great Dane dogs to arrive from down south. These boys are big ones. They're around 9 months old and one of them already weighs in at 60 pounds or so and the other 2 check in at 45 or so pounds. If you have room to adopt a big doggie, contact the Humane Society.

Remember the dog and cat style show on Sunday, October 22 at the Owatonna Holiday Inn. Besides dogs and cats they also have at least one rabbit and a fainting goat that will be part of the show.

The next MN Snap visit will be January 6, 2018. It's your opportunity to have your pet spayed or neutered at a discounted price should you qualify. Last year all the clinics were full by May so it's wise to check out their website now.
