“We may have pets, but when it comes to unconditional love, they are the masters.”

When the world seems out of control where nothing makes sense any more, it’s nice to turn to the one furry creature that makes no judgments, doesn’t tell your secrets and is willing to just let you be you.
If you’re looking for a real “honey” of a four-legged member of your family, look no further than Honey, a 1-year-old Siberian husky mix that arrived at KCAC as a stray.
Honey is so sweet she could almost raise your cholesterol, but fortunately, hanging around with her adds zero calories to your daily intake. If anything, walking her will help your blood flow while your heart will thank you for the additional exercise you’ll get as you become her first trainer and forever buddy.
She loves to get attention from anyone who will turn in her direction. Other dogs don’t bother her as long as they keep to themselves. In fact, if Honey could be the only dog in the house, it would make for the absolute ideal partnership.
As Honey squeezes herself onto your lap for cuddle time or lays down by your feet as you relax on the patio after a long day of playing fetch, a warm feeling of contentment washes over you.
For some reason, the crazy world that seemed out of control not so long ago, now actually makes sense as long as Honey is by your side.
Congratulations to Onyx, our 7-month-old black lab puppy with enough energy to turn back time.
Onyx left KCAC for his forever home, tail wagging all the way. We’re so happy for you, Onyx.
You’re pointed in the right direction now!
