Dog Pound Pet of the Week

This brindle little boy is Banjo, a shy, 9-month-old with a very mixed family tree and the Highland County Dog Pound Pet of the Week. Beaten and abandoned, Banjo has had a rough early life, but despite his mistreatment, he is gentle and sweet-natured. A little timid, still, he is willing to accept new people in a very short time and he seems fine with other dogs. Just 30 pounds, Banjo is stylishly slim and runs like a fawn. To meet Banjo, or any of the many good dogs at the pound, make an appointment by calling 937-393-8191.

Pet Wow - Vet Experience with Our Cat - Florence, KY

As my boyfriend and I are moving shortly, we needed to take our cat Daisy to the vet. Our new apartment requires updated records and a couple of shots she did not have up-to-date. When looking to book at short notice, we settled on Pet Wow in Florence, KY. They also have another location in Highland Heights. They were able to get us in for a weekend appointment and we had a great experience with them.

Between them, the Highland County Dog Pound and the Highland County Humane Society Animal Shelter are currently housing about 40 dogs and over 20 cats.
