Was Valentine’s Day a disappointment? Are you still looking for someone who is excited to see you when you walk through the door at the end of each and every day? Who listens without judgment? Won’t notice if you’ve gained a few extra pounds? Enjoys walks in the park or picnics at the beach? Or likes to stay in and curl up on the couch with a good book and won’t tell anyone that you secretly like watching re-runs of “I Dream of Jeannie?” Finding the right relationship can be easy if you know where to look. We’ve got them all at the Humane Society of Knox County. From mature, single ladies looking for love, and a-mewsing males looking for lifetime companions, to young singles looking for fun and adventure. We would be happy to help you find that purrfect match.

Looking for a family man? How about Carson? Carson is a 3-year-old neutered male Beagle. Carson is a great all-around dog. He’s super-friendly, getting along with everyone: other dogs, cats and kids. He is housebroken and enjoys going on walks, which is good because Beagles are notoriously fond of food and can easily become overweight. Carson is no different and could benefit from daily walks and a few less table scraps. Carson is all Beagle, which means that he has that very distinctive Beagle bark that he likes to share. For this reason, he isn’t a suitable pet for apartment living. He would do best in a country setting where his occasional conversations wouldn’t upset the neighbors. He is a great family dog just waiting for his own family.

We’d like to thank everyone who came out to support the Humane Society of Knox County and the AIO Food Pantry at the Knox County Feed Our Friends Event. It was great to meet so many supporters. The community was very generous, donating a truckload of much-needed supplies to help us care for the animals. Kids and adults alike were thrilled to meet cat extraordinaire Togus of Channel 6 Storm Center fame who lent his celebrity for the event. A special thank you goes out to Don and Donna Carrigan who shared their cat and their free time to help our cause. We’d also like to thank Candice Richards from the Knox County Administrator’s Office for organizing the event. We truly appreciate the support of the community. We can’t do what we do without your help.

Save the date: On Saturday, March 6 we will be hosting a Tropical Get Away Fundraiser at the Lincoln Street Center from 5 to 9 p.m. with steel drum band Steelin’ Thunder providing the music. Tickets are only $10 for plenty of food, fun and entertainment. We will have food and drink, dancing, a limbo contest, a silent auction of great items, a 50/50 raffle and a contest for the best tropical-themed outfit. The sponsors are Kennebec Pharmacy and Home Care, Warren True Value, Thomaston Place Auction Galleries and Horch Roofing.

There are only two weeks left to help us win $5,000 from the Bangor Savings Foundation. You can vote for us by following the link at hskcme.org or stopping by the shelter to fill out a ballot. You need to write in Humane Society of Knox County under Midcoast region. It’s one vote per person so tell your friends, family and co-workers to help the animals. Thank you for your support.
