Sweet 16 Pupdate!

Sparty & Wolverine when they first arrived at their foster home
The NCAA tournament may be over, but for our Sweet Sixteen, life is just beginning!  These adorable pups were found abandoned in a plastic container outside the Pitt County Animal Shelter on a cold, rainy night.  Lacking the resources to care for them, the Humane Society received an urgent call, and we quickly found foster homes for all sixteen, where they have been loved, socialized and cared for.
Wolverine is ALMOST ready for his forever home.

We got an update from the foster mom of Sparty and Wolverine, two very small puppies who learned that people and playing are a lot of fun!  These happy gals have thrived on a diet of puppy food and milk replacement, and enjoy roughhousing, cuddling and giving kisses.

We are very grateful to everyone who stepped up and donated money, formula, wet food, and newspapers to help with their care.  Now these lively pups are getting ready to move to a new home court!  This Saturday, April 19, they will be spayed, neutered, and ready for adoption.  You’re invited to come visit, and maybe find a new best friend – or two!  They’ll be available on a first come, first served basis beginning Saturday at 1pm, and we’ll be there from 1-5 with sixteen very sweet reasons to drop by!
Sparty is getting BIG!

Over 3 for Reduced Fee! April Special... Cat Edition

Everyone knows that cats have nine lives, and the fact that cats often live well into their teens and beyond means that even an older kitty will have lots of time to spend in their forever families.   This month, adopters of pets age three and better will get a double reward – a seasoned cat, and $20 off the regular adoption fee! This means these gems can be adopted for only $60!

Here are just a few of our experienced cats:

Linda hates being in a cage, and who can blame her?  She came to us when her human moved to a place that didn’t allow pets, and she’s wondering when she’ll have a home of her own again.  She’s lived with dogs, cats and kids, and is a real beauty with unique markings. 

Harley will bring a whole lot of love to his forever home.  At 18 pounds, he’s a BIG boy.  Brought to us by his former owner, he’s sad and forlorn in the shelter.  He’s a real people person – a laid back cat with a fondness for ear scratches and head bumps who would love nothing more than to have a home of his own!

Buddy is a sweet and outgoing fellow who’s a favorite of the staff and volunteers.  He love people and other cats, and is a mellow guy who loves to be petted.  We can’t figure out why he’s still here, and he’s hoping someone will come get him soon!
