Back by popular demand, Pope Memorial Humane Society of Knox County will be running our Certified Pre-Owned Cat adoption promotion through the end of August. Cats 1-year-old and older are available to qualified adopters with $0 down, 0 percent financing and no payments. We have a huge selection available of many makes and models loaded with adorable features: plush exteriors, loving interiors, four paw drive and a motor guaranteed to purr. These Certified Pre-Owned cats come in an assortment of colors and designs and with a multi-point inspection that includes spay/neuter surgery, age appropriate vaccinations, flea treatment, de-worming and a free medical evaluation. Here's your chance to get great rates on pre-owned cats. Looking for newer models? All brand spankin' new, right off the lot kittens are 50 percent off. Help cats cruise into new homes. Adopt today. For those who cannot adopt but want to help, cash donations are welcome to help offset the funding lost through this special promotions and donations of canned cat food are also appreciated.

Our pet picks of the week are Charlotte and Scepter. Charlotte is a super friendly gal around 5 and a half years old. This affectionate beauty is looking for a lap to land in and call home. Looking for someone a little younger and more active? Scepter, a little pint-sized kitten is very playful, full of mischief and downright adorable. We have wall-to-wall cats at the shelter, well over 100 friendly, fabulous cats and kittens looking to be adopted. There is no better time to adopt then during our Certified Pre-Owned Cat promotion.

During the month of August, Rite-Way Cleaning of Waldoboro will once again donate a portion of all pet-related rug cleaning proceeds to support PMHSKC. Just mention the words “Humane Society”. To schedule a rug cleaning, call Mike at 785-3484.
