Halloween is right around the corner which means now is the purr-fect time to find your familiar, whether that’s a black alley cat or a bloodhound.
This week, we took a break from Take Out Tuesday, which normally features one lucky doggo who gets to visit our office for the majority of the day. Instead, we hope to shine some light on the other half of the Stephens County Humane Society, which has a cat-a-logue chock full of selection for those needing to add a furry family member.
Our first stop in the cattery was with Sandy, a domestic short hair kitty who is almost three-and-a-half years old. Unfortunately, Sandy has been in the shelter for far too long. She came into SCHS heavily pregnant, and is now spayed after raising her little family. Sandy is a sweet girl who sports a quirky meow, though sometimes it’s obvious she can be annoyed by the younger cats and their shenanigans. With that said, Sandy has a boatload of sass and always something to say, especially to whoever takes her home and will love her for the rest of her days. She is a domestic short hair cat, and though she wandered up to a business and was turned over to the Humane Society, she has become a cattery queen bee, allowing her to keep the young cats in line.
Next is Jean and Eugene. This brother and sister duo are six month old domestic short haired kittens that were abandoned on a country bridge with their sister Jeannie before being taken in by the SCHS. Jean is a female tortie who is quick, curious and social, and her brother Eugene is black and white and amazingly affectionate. They are ready to find their fur-ever homes.
In keeping with the Halloween theme, our last two featured cats have names that are 100 hundred purr-cent magic.
Sully, a domestic short hair about 17 weeks old, was found at the Honk and Holler at Fuller Road alone and scared at only six weeks old. Now, at four to five months old with a bit of extra weight, he just wants to find himself a family to play with.
And last, but not least… The Banner presents the Addams Family.
Perfect for Halloween, Wednesday is a 20 week old domestic short hair who is nowhere near as scary as her Addams Family counterpart, but just as fun. Wednesday has no trouble making friends, and her beautiful black and white coat will look great in any family photos. Speaking of family photos, Wednesday’s siblings are also available for adoption. This includes Gomez, who is Turkish Van colored; Morticia, who is tabby and white; and Pugsley, who sports a plush orange and white coat. All of the Addams family kittens are beautiful, and have been described as “wonderful, affectionate, social and an absolute delight to be around.”
While normally we would wrap it up here, we thought we would also sneak in one hound who still needs a family. Her name is Ruby.
Ruby came to The Banner last week. She is three years and three months old and is a lab mix, though on the larger side. At first, she was shy and timid, but she came out of her shell by the end of the trip. Now, she wants to find a companion who can keep her out of her shell and on her paws, though she has no problem just hanging around. Ruby is sponsored by Ean’s Dogs and is available for immediate adoption. We think Ruby would make a great dog for a family with older kids or just an older couple.
All animals are spayed/neutered, up to date on shots, and treated for ticks and fleas. Cats are tested for FeLV and FIV and dogs are tested for heart worms.
Normal adoption fees for cats is $75 and $100 for dogs, but SCHS frequently runs specials or has animals who have their adoption fees sponsored.
