My story

Meet River! River is one of our " Special needs" cats. She is approximately 2 year of age and has been spayed. It was unfortunately determined by our vet that she is blind, this however does not seem to affect how she functions on a day-to-day basis to much. While she will need some special arrangements when being placed in home such as having lots of time to get used to her new surroundings and a relatively large and open space to live with limited obstacles such as stairs for her to acclimate to. She seems to do well otherwise and is the sweetest most affectionate kitty around. She would make an excellent lap cat as she loves to be cuddled and held. River would need to be in a calm and quiet free of small children and other pets.

More about this shelter

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.
