Adopt-A-Pet: January 17, 2019


ADOPT-A-PET THIS WEEK IS STARTING OFF WITH THIS HANDSOME BLACK CAT NAMED RIBSY. RIBSY IS A TWO- YEAR-OLD DOMESTIC SHORTHAIR MIX. HE’S AN INDOOR CAT THAT ISN’T SHY AROUND PEOPLE OR OTHER CATS. UNFORTUNATELY, RIBSY IS A LONG TERM RESIDENT OF HELPING HANDS. HE WAS BROUGHT TO THE SHELTER AT THE END OF SEPTEMBER, AND HAS BEEN PATIENTLY WAITING FOR A FOREVER HOME SINCE THEN. LUCKILY, RIBSY DOES HAS A SPONSOR BUDDY, SO PART OF HIS ADOPTION FEE HAS ALREADY BEEN COVERED. NEXT UP IS EMERALD. EMERALD IS AN ENEGETIC FOUR- YEAR-OLD POINTER AND LABRADOR MIX. JUST LIKE RIBSY, EMERALD HAS BEEN CALLING HELPING HANDS HER TEMPORARY HOME SINCE SEPTEMBER. EMERALD IS VERY FRIENDLY, BUT SHE DOESN’T ALWAYS KNOW HER OWN STRENGTH. WITH THAT IN MIND, SHE WOULD DO BEST IN A HOME WITH OLDER CHILDREN AND ONE WITHOUT CATS. LAST BUT NOT LEAST IS PATRICK. PATRICK IS A ONE- YEAR-OLD HOUND AND GERMAN SHEPHERD MIX. HE’S A SWEET PUP THAT LOVES BOTH BELLY RUBS AND PEOPLE. PATRICK DID COME TO THE SHELTER WITH AN INJURED LEG THAT WILL NEED SOME ONGOING CARE. IF YOU’RE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING HIM, THE VET AT HELPING HANDS WILL BE HAPPY TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT HIS LEG. YOU MAY NOTICE THAT PATRICK HERE SHARES THE SAME FIRST NAME AS KANSAS CITY CHIEFS STARTING QUARTERBACK, PATRICK MAHOMES. AFTER A SUCCESSFUL CHIEFS THEMED ADOPTION SPECIAL LAST WEEKEND, HELPING HANDS WILL BE PUTTING ON ANOTHER ONE IN HONOR OF THE CHIEFS UPCOMING GAME AGAINST THE NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS. ADOPTION PRICES DURING THE KELCE- ING LOVE AND FINDING MAHOMES EVENT WILL BE CENTERED AROUND THE NUMBERS OF BOTH TRAVIS KELCE AND PATRICK MAHOMES. Kelce is number 87, so all of the dogs are going to be 87, and then all of our cats and kittens are going to be 15, and our senior dogs are going to be 15. So come on out and see us. THESE ADOPTION PRICES WILL NOT BE APPLICABLE TO HIGH PROFILE PETS. THE KELCE-ING LOVE AND FINDING MAHOMES ADOPTION SPECIAL WILL BE GOING ON THIS SATURDAY AT HELPING HANDS HUMANE SOCIETY FROM 11:30 UNTIL 6, AND THEN ONCE AGAIN ON SUNDAY, FROM 1 TO 5.
