There's no place like homePope Memorial Humane Society of Knox County
Dorothy of the Wizard of Oz said it best and Toto knew it too, "There's no place like home." We're hoping that all the shelter animals will know it with our There's No Place Like Home Adoption Event.
Now, through the end of October we will be reducing the adoption fees on adult dogs to $75, adult cats to $20, Kittens to just $50 and all small mammals will have their adoption fees waived. A home, that’s what we wish for and work toward for each and every animal that comes through our doors. Do you have room in your home to adopt a wonderful shelter pet? Can't adopt but want to help? Sponsor an animal while they wait for a home. Sign up to be a foster family. Volunteer your time or donate money or items from our wish list. Together we can make dreams come true.
Our pet pick of the week is Montero, a striking 1-year-old neutered male long haired feline. He is a very loving affectionate lap cat looking for a lap to call his own. He is fine with sharing his home and affection with other cats and kids. Montero is an indoor-only kitty.
Thank you to all the good folks on Vinalhaven for donating the proceeds of their annual Bingo night, an amazing $1,368, to help the homeless animals in our care. We thank them for their wonderful show of support made in memory of a dear friend of the shelter Laura Hamilton. Donations from events like Bingo night and the annual Vinalhaven Pet Show are greatly needed and appreciated. PMHSKC doesn't receive any state or federal funding nor do we receive funding from any national animal welfare organization. We rely on local support to provide shelter, food, medical care and a second chance to more than 1,500 homeless animals a year. Vinalhaven is one of 20 towns in Knox and Waldo counties that PMHSKC serves. What an inspiring example of a community rallying behind their animal shelter in support of our mission to help the homeless and abandoned animals. Thank you Vinalhaven!
Our 2014 Pet Calendar is now on sale. This stunning calendar celebrates the animals that fill our hearts and our lives and is filled with photos of cherished pets from PMHSKC supporters and shelter animals that have recently been adopted. The calendar is only $10 with 100 percent of the proceeds going directly to care for the animals at the shelter. They’ll make excellent presents this holiday season.
