I am already neutered, good with kids, not good with dogs, and not good with cats.
Joey was surrendered because his owner was moving and could not take him along. He is a very friendly cat who is good with children and other cats but does not care for dogs. He has a very distinctive "Meow" and it sounds like he is talking. Joey is 9 years old and litter trained. Because Joey is a senior he will be part of our Adopt a Senior program. His adoption fee will be waived with an approved application.
We are animal lovers. We hate the idea of putting an animal down -- for any reason. However, unlike other shelters, we take-in all animals -- including abused and medically neglected animals. There are times when an animal is simply so vicious that we can not responsibly adopt the pet to a family. We have, at other times, been told by our veterinarian, that it is not humane to extend the life of a very sick animal. We make every effort to find homes for every animal in our care.When our shelter is over-crowded, we rely on a network of "foster families" to take care of our pets. All the while, we have increased our efforts to "get the word out" about our pets (e.g. this website, pictures, newspaper publicity, etc.) Our efforts pay off. The Staff and Board of Directors at the Humane Society love pets, and our actions bear out that simple fact. Our animal guests get the very best care while they are with us. Please help! We need volunteers to help us exercise the dogs. We try to walk the dogs each day to provide them with the exercise and attention they so desperately need. You can volunteer as little or as much as you like. If you would be interested in helping us care for our animal guests, please call the shelter at 814-443-2121.
