    Gooney and his friends are safe yet hopeful during these times

    From the desk of Executive Director Tracy Sala, It’s a bit strange here at the shelter. Not quiet, as the dogs still bark and the phone still rings, now more than ever, but…empty. We are being cautious and safe by following the recommendations of the CDC. So, our doors are closed to the public, we have limited staff and we asked the volunteers to stay home for their safety. Which, I have to say, is difficult for …

    All Roman wants for Christmas is a family who loves to play ball

    From the desk of PMHS volunteer coordinator, Kelly Gould, As a volunteer coordinator, I spend a fair time out in our kennels leading canine playgroups and training dog walkers. While I am there, I get to watch as customers come into the kennel area to look at dogs and I have started to notice a pattern. A dog catches a person’s eye, they stop outside the kennel to say “hi” and perhaps toss the dog a treat. The …

    From Bahamas to Maine, Isabel is searching for her forever home

    From the desk of PMHS Events Coordinator, Kasey Bielecki, ‘Tis the season of giving. Due to its popularity last year, we have brought the Pet Angel Tree back to Pope Memorial Humane Society.

Despite the cold and the icy roads, our shelter volunteers are in full gear. Volunteers in the …
