Meet Spittie and Mimi!

Looking for a very, very good home that may be willing to adopt both Mimi and little Spit Fire together. Both kittens are approximately 4 ½ to 5 months old, have been spayed and have received their initial shots. They were part of a litter that was rescued from a farm and were both sick with upper respiratory and eye infections when they came into foster care. Spit Fire has made the most progress since coming being rescued. She was the smallest of the original four kittens, ate very slowly and hissed a ton - hence her name. However, now she has become very brave and loves to play and when held, purrs like a machine. She is still shy at times and careful as she learns to trust the environment. She is a sweet and pretty girl that with time will become a real love bug like her sister Mimi.

Mimi always has been a love. She rushes the door to greet her foster mom and loves to be picked up and cuddled. She too likes to play and the two kittens together are quite active and fun. Mimi does have residue scarring from the severe eye infection that she suffered as a young kitten. However, she has received a clean bill of health from the veterinarian and the doctor believes that with time, it is possible that the scarring will become less noticeable. Don’t tell Mimi that she looks a little different though. Her sweet demeanor more than makes up for it, not to mention the extra-long wispy hair coming from both of her ears.

At this time the two kittens are very bonded and ideally, will go to a home together. An experienced and patient cat owner who will give the kittens time to trust, grow and to continue to develop their own individual personalities also would be ideal. The foster mom is confident that with time, Spittie, the more shy kitten will become quite comfortable in her indoor home and be forever grateful for a home where she is safe to play and be cared for along with her more outgoing sister, Mimi.

We have no shelter, office, or paid staff. Our programs include Canine Foster & Adoption, Spay & Neuter Assistance, and Community Cats Information and Referral.

Mission Statement: The Alternative Humane Society of Whatcom County is an all-volunteer, non-profit animal welfare organization dedicated to improving the lives of dogs and cats and helping them find and stay in permanent loving homes.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We can be found showing off our loveable dogs at Petco on Bakerview and Guide Meridian in Bellingham on the 1st and 2nd weekend of each month. All our showings are between 11:00 am and 3:00 pm. Come on out and say hi!

Our Adoption Process...

AHS does not do same-day adoptions. We provide a form called a “Statement of Interest” for potential adopters to fill out. When completed, this form is reviewed by an AHS volunteer (the animal’s Case Manager) who will contact the potential adopter with any additional questions and arrange a meeting if it looks like a good match. The potential adopter usually hears back from a volunteer within 2-3 days, but since many of our volunteers also work at full-time jobs, the entire process can take longer. Although we try our very best we usually will not be able to contact every person who submits a Statement of Interest, we reserve our limited resources for those who look like a good match.

Adoption Fees:
Dogs under 18 months – $200.00
Dogs over 18 months – $160.00
