Meet the new Pet of the Week: Kody (w/video)

The Echo Press and the Lakes Area Humane Society (LAHS) in Alexandria present this week’s “Pet of the Week” – Kody.

Kody is a 1 to 2 year old male cat. 

The LAHS says, "Kody arrived to us a very scared and timid cat, not sure what to think about people. Since his arrival, Kody has flourished! He loves spending time with his favorite volunteers and even warms up to strangers if they are kind and gentle to him." 

If you are interested in adopting Kody, call the LAHS at (320) 759-2260.

The LAHS animal shelter is open to the public Mondays and Wednesdays (noon to 6 p.m.), Thursdays and Fridays (noon to 5 p.m. and Saturday (11 a.m. to 4 p.m.) at 3811 Nevada Street SW in Alexandria
