Say hi to Kai!

Kate from Tri-County Humane Society describes Kai as a "stout little dude". Kai is about 38 compact pounds wrapped into an energetic ball of love!

Kai is a 9-month old German Shepherd/Siberian Husky mix. He's neutered and *probably* house-trained; Kate notes that while Kai keeps a clean kennel, his new adopters should take care to keep him on a consistent potty schedule.

Book Buddies Reading Program

Pets love to be read to. If you have a kiddo (age 5-15 years preferred) in your household who would LOVE to read to a shelter resident, then the Book Buddies program is for you (them)! Pets don't care about mispronounced words, and it's beneficial for both the kiddo (who gets practice reading aloud) and the resident, as shelter life can be stressful.

Tri-County Humane Society is located at 735 8th Street Northeast in St Cloud. Call them at (320) 252-0896 for questions or to make a deposit for your new family member!
