   May is National Pet Month!
      A celebration of the loving pets in our lives - and us in theirs
"Yes, my eyes are the color of pumpkins!"
Meet Chessie!
Chessie is a one and a half year old female cutie!  Very sweet and loves to be petted - when she wants to be!  Chessie does have some medical issues.  Her previous family could not care for her so, she was surrendered to KHS.  She has allergies and currently is on medication and a special diet.  This may never go away.  So, her new family will need to care for her for the rest of her life.
Chessie will also need to be your one and only four-legged friend.  How could you want more!  Look at that face!  A beautiful, shiny coat and some purring completes her package!
Stop by any afternoon and meet Chessie.  You can't miss her.  Her eyes will lead you straight to her!
   Autos for Sale
KHS has 3 vehicles for sale!

1996 Blue Astro Van - A nice little van.  KHS used it to pick up small items for the thrift store and to carry event setup materials to local venues.  Has new shocks.  Only 135,456 miles.  Logo has been removed.  Paw prints can stay or can be removed.  Asking $2,000.

2002 Red Ford Ranger Pickup - This truck was donated to KHS after the original owner hit something on the front end.  It does run.  However, it is undriveable.  The owner had just put $1,500 worth of work into it days before the accident.  It has 128,933 miles.  Please stop by, take a look, and make us an offer!  

1998 GMC Box Truck - KHS has owned this truck for seven years.  It has been used to pick up furniture for the thrift store and has been driven in parades.  You can also contact the previous owner for maintenance records.  Wrap has been removed.  Asking $10,000.

   Celebrating 40 Years!

KHS will be celebrating all year long with many events highlighting our two, three, and four-legged friends.  Visit our website for a schedule of all the festivities that are being planned!  If you have a story of an animal adopted from KHS that you'd like to share, please let us know!  We'd love to highlight it!

What better way to celebrate 40 years of caring for our community's homeless animals than by creating a new facility for more animals to be rescued, receive medical treatment, and find a furever home!  Visit our website HERE for updates on the capital campaign and how you can become a part of our journey.
