From the desk of the PMHS Shelter Manager Theresa Gargan:

As I sit here relaxing on a perfect fall Sunday, my mind is filled with the memories of yesterday's first-ever K-9 Carnival at Harbor Park. If an event's success is measured by the pure joy of the people participating, then this one hit it out of the park. From the carnival games to the puppy playpen, the dog lure course to the dunk tank (and, yes, I did get dunked), everyone, two- and four-legged together, had smiles on their faces or tails wagging.

For me, the most wonderful part of the day was seeing so many of our alumni dogs with their families. Pups who had just recently gone home as well as those adopted years ago came for the canine festivities. Hearing how these dogs have made such a positive difference in the lives of their people and seeing how happy they are with their families reminded me of why we at the shelter do what we do. Waiting at Pope Memorial are many more dogs and cats, as well as guinea pigs, ferrets and bunnies, waiting to bring unconditional love to your home. Let me introduce you to two of them; they are waiting patiently and hoping you might be the one.

Luna is a 2-year-old pug/beagle, aka puggle. She is a recent graduate of K-9 Corrections, our training program with the Maine State Prison, that would love a home with another dog. Luna can be initially shy with people and can startle easily, so a home with little foot traffic would suit her perfectly. If your dog is in need of a very sweet playmate, bring them in to meet Luna. She just might be the perfect match.

Winter is a 2-year old Siamese/ragdoll mix. If you are looking for entertainment, he's your cat. Winter spends his time looking for excitement and would love a home full of toys for his amusement. He isn't a fan of being cuddled and becomes easily overstimulated. Because of this, we believe an adult home would be best. If you are a fan of quirky, independent cats, come on by and meet this handsome boy.

Luna is requesting fleece blankets for herself and her kennel buddies. She noticed a nip in the air and wants to be prepared for colder weather.

Winter agrees with Luna on the fleece blanket request, but also wanted to remind everyone that there can never be enough Temptations cat treats.

Thank you all for your continuing support of Pope Memorial Humane Society.
