Words cannot describe how much our pets mean to us.

They are our best friends, close companions, and often (not to mention, always) better listeners than people. A pet can bring so much joy to your life, enriching it for the better.

We would never pass up the opportunity to brag about our pets and their friendliness. Here is a picture of this writer’s cat. Her name is Emmie and she deserves to be bragged about all the time. Why? Look at her. She is precious.

Adoption center making adjustments to help dogs https://christ-yoder.org/adoption-center-making-adjustments-to-help-dogs/ Tue, 09 Aug 2022 09:50:19 +0000 https://christ-yoder.org/adoption-center-making-adjustments-to-help-dogs/

ZANESVILLE — Despite some growing pains, the Muskingum County K-9 Adoption Center is up and running.

“The building was a huge success,” Muskingum County Sheriff Matt Lutz said. “We’re in a more modern, updated, larger facility. It’s light years away from where we were.” The new facility opened to the public in February.

As with most new construction, Muskingum County Commissioner Mollie Crooks said, there are still bugs to work out. Stewards tried to be cost conscious, Crooks said, and to use materials they felt would work in place of more expensive stainless steel kennel walls. “But things don’t always go as planned,” she said.

Some dogs were able to chew through the plastic walls of some kennels, damaging them. It was initially thought that doors with opaque lower halves would help reduce noise, but this was found to not help dog behavior. “One volunteer compared it to isolating dogs,” Crooks said.
