We are Social Animals!

Meet Cheeky. This handsome fella went from unemployed to adding "mouser" and "farm animal companion" to his resume once placed in our Barn Cat/Backyard Buddy Program. Like many of our backyard buddies, Cheeky preferred the great outdoors to the confines of indoor living, but still required the protection of a shed, garage, or barn along with a regular supply of food and water.

You can help these adventurers today by bringing home your very own Barn Cat/Backyard Buddy. Provide food, drink, and the outdoor pad, and we’ll set you up with a spayed or neutered and vaccinated verminator free of charge! Plus, you’ll be making a difference in the life of a cat in need. If interested in learning more, please email Community Cat Coordinator Patty at pattyr@thehumanesociety.org.

Four-year-old Featured Pet Scarlet is a Rex rabbit, meaning her fur is dense, plush, and oh so touchable! While independent in nature, she does have a sociable side~once settled in and comfortable, she’ll most definitely be seeking attention. If you’ve got a single-rabbit household and a rabbit safe room/Xpen setup instead of a cage, Scarlet may just love you as much as she loves her daily greens. And trust us, she’s a big salad fan — #484443. ... See MoreSee Less
