Meet this Week’s “Friday FurBall”- Hudson

Posted on by Courtney

26060409-aa68-407e-af07-9362987d1bbbHudson is a 12 year old hound mix who is looking for an experienced owner with no children under 12 years old. Like our other senior guys, Hudson is still quite young at heart! He’s very active and enjoys spending lots of time outdoors. He will need to be kept on leash or in a securely fenced area for his exercise since he gets very distracted by all the interesting smells the world has to offer! Hudson qualifies for our seniors for seniors program and his adoption fee will be reduced by 50% if you are 65 or over.

If you would like to adopt Hudson or any of the other “Friday Fur Balls” visit www.kingstonhumanesociety.ca or stop by Kingston Humane Society at 1 Bennington CRT.

Ebola – Texas

The Texas health department has released a statement confirming a second health-care worker has tested positive for Ebola.  A man died from Ebola last week and the Dallas hospital that treated him is now caring for a nurse who was infected by the man.  The second health care worker also provided care for the man who died.

No Comment – Suspended Workers

The city of Kingston has launched an internal investigation into allegations that up to half a dozen bylaw enforcement officers who ticket vehicles have been taking bribes. The city says police are not involved.  Officials aren’t making any other comments about the news report saying it is a human resources matter.
Mayoral Race – Poll

A poll on Kingston’s mayoral race says there’s a virtual tie between the top three candidates.
The telephone survey conducted last week found 23% support for Bryan Patterson, 21% for Rick Downes and 20% for Dorothy Hector.
One of the biggest factors is undecided voters.  The Prime Contact Group says 22% of voters hadn’t decided who they’re going to vote for when the automated phone survey was taken on October 8th.
There are three other candidates in the running.  Brenda Slomka got 7% support, Scott Foster 2% – but there was no option on the survey to select the other candidate – Michael Owen.

Meet this Week’s “Friday FurBall”- Buddy

Posted on by Courtney

Buddy1Buddy is a very special boy who is looking for a very special home. You see, Buddy the hound was surrendered into our care when his owners realized that they could not meet his needs, and he had already been through one home before. Buddy is blind in both eyes. The world, and shelter, can be an especially stressful and scary place when you can’t see anything around you. Despite all of the changes that Buddy has endured so far in his short life, and the adjustments he has had to make, he is keeping his spirits high as can be! When you come to visit you will find Buddy in his kennel with his tail wagging on high speed, waiting patiently for his forever home. He loves going out for walks, and seems very interested in other dogs. Buddy has a lot of energy to burn and could use to work on his manners, but just needs some guidance from an experienced owner. This unique pup would thrive in a home with children over 6 years old. Buddy’s adoption will be an extremely thoughtful process for our shelter staff, and we hope that somewhere out there is a loving and perfect home made just for him.

For more on Buddy click here
If you would like to adopt Buddy or any of the other “Friday Fur Balls” visit www.kingstonhumanesociety.ca or stop by Kingston Humane Society at 1 Bennington CRT.
For more information contact the Kingston Humane Society at 613 546-1291
