October 28, 2020 UPDATE in regards to COVID-19

Because we care about our community and want to help stop the spread of the virus, protecting our community, staff, guests and volunteers... we are taking steps as a precaution due to the COVID-19 Risk dial for the area being at "High". Stronger social distancing restrictions will be in place, meaning one person or family unit at a time will be allowed in the facility and we will be going by appointments during our normally regular business hours. An application for adoption is available on our website at www.mccookhumanesociety.com under the tab dog or cat, please indicate who you are interested in adopting. Our front door will be locked during our otherwise normal open hours, you may knock and if we do not have an otherwise scheduled appointment, or someone else in the facility, you will be able to come in and view our pets available for adoption.
Masks are mandatory. We ask that you do not come into the facility if you have been in contact with anyone who has tested positive with COVID-19, or if you have traveled to a known high risk area within the last 14 days, if you are at high risk, or if you are showing any symptoms of the virus. We appreciate your continuing support and understanding during these unusual times and wish everyone a happy, enjoyable and safe experience while visiting our facility.

Hi, guys! It's me, Dutch. (Remember me? I was with you back in September. I was a stray in McCook.) I just wanted to THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH for taking such good care of me until my new family, the McLemores, could come and pick me up! YOU ALL ARE AWESOME!Dutch, July 2010

Well, I'm living a half mile outside of Colby, Kansas, now. I have a big yard (1.5 acres) and my own swimming pool (see me in the pic). I also have a great neighbor dog, Abbey. She's some kind of cute little Australian shepherd or something. We love to RUN REALLY FAST so I get lots of exercise. She also is my very favorite chew toy (but I never hurt her!)

The McLemores have 3 big boys--but only Brandon is living at home right now. Blake's at K-State but he comes home often to see me. I haven't met Ryan and his wife, Samantha yet 'cuz they live in Minnesota. Dutch, July 2010I love to chase Brandon around the house. We have a big kitchen with an island in the middle, and also a circle around the living room and kitchen area. I bark and get pretty excited when we play! But I've also been on my best behavior and I settle right back down and am still my loving, sweet self. My owner's say I should be my own breed, 'cuz everyone would want a dog with my personality and cute, little "floppy" manerisms! I can tell that they all really love me 'cuz they're always hugging me.

Another thing I love to do is go on walks in the country with my owner, Suzie. Actually, they're hikes. She takes me off the leash and I run in the fields and hills. They keep saying stuff about going hunting, or something like that. . .I'm anxious to see what it's all about.

I had a bacteria in my stomach and intestines, (the vet thought it could be from what I ate when I was a stray) but I've been taking medicine and I'm feeling quite a bit better now.

At night I sleep in the house on my own doggie bed, but during the day they put me on a light chain while they're all gone. They lay my bed on the front porch so I guess it's not too bad; but I'm sure happy when they get home!

My favorite toys are my doggie tennis balls, and my squeaky duck. I also have a squeaky football and lots of big rawhide chews. For halloween, I'm going as a dalmation, 'cuz my owner, Bob, is the Colby fire chief.

Well, guess I'd better go for now. It's getting late and I need my rest. Thanks again for everything and give all my friends up there a big, wet "lick" for me!

Love to all, Dutch
