Our pet pick of the week is Bennett a 1-year-old orange and white medium-haired cat. Bennett was trapped as a feral kitten. Although he received his fair share of love and care in foster care, he was extremely scared and timid and some questioned whether he would ever be socialized enough to become someone's house pet. Well, it's taken some time but with lots of love, affection and patience, Bennett is eager to be someone's loving companion in his very own home. Bennett is a very sweet boy. Now, through the end of the month, Bennett and any adult cat can be adopted for just $10 during our Tag Sale adoption promotion. Adult dogs are included too — $25 off the adoption fee.

It's another Dog Gone Yard sale. This Friday and Saturday, May 24 and 25, we will be holding our annual Yard Sale/Plant Sale/Bake sale at American Legion Post 37 on Starr Street in Thomaston from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will be plenty of treasures and goodies to choose from plus plants to fill out your garden. Questions? Contact volunteer@hskcme.org.

Save the Date: Thursday, June 13 is the 6th annual Eat for Pete's Sake edible fundraiser where select local restaurants donate a portion of their profits to the shelter.
