This Saturday is Shoot for the Shelter Pool Tourney!

Come check out our “Adopt-A-Kennel” program where our local individuals and businesses can show the community their support for our area’s homeless animals. This month’s (JANUARY) Adopt-A-Kennel is from another anonymous awesome friend who is asking for a post Christmas Miracle. He saw that we are still overwhelmingly full and his wish is also that “All of our furkids find wonderful and forever homes”. Ask about our “Adopt-A-Kennel Program”… It’s the perfect way to honor someone or memorialize them by adopting a kennel in their name. Call us for more information or visit our website www.mccookhumanesociety.com for more information and to fill out a form online. You can also sponsor an adoption for one of our available pets if you’d like to help out in that way.

We’re super excited about tomorrow and the 18th Annual “Shoot for the Shelter” Pool Tournament, Saturday, January 27th at TJ’s Family Fun Center. The FB Event Page is up and will be continue to be updated as time progresses. It’s promising to be an amazing event thanks to some awesome sponsors, volunteers and participants. Can’t wait to see everyone!

It’s still cold outside. We’re going to continue our sweater giveaway. We don’t want any furkid to be cold, we have some very nice sweaters set aside for anyone who needs one for their furchild.

We’ve had some very loving people come in and sponsor adoptions to help make sure that our temporarily homeless furry friends find homes for the holidays. Come on in and see who’s adoption fees have been completely paid for: Runa, Charlie, Apricat, Doug, Dardaen,  Harley, Hondo and Lizzie. Some wonderful pets have found truly amazing forever homes because of these generous people.

Spay/Neuter Fees waived… A wonderfully generous anonymous donor has decided that it was time to let the dog’s at the shelter get help in finding homes also. This friend of the shelter started a spay/neuter reimbursement fund for them because, as she said, “they need help finding permanent loving homes also”. So, spay/neuter fees will be waived on all dogs who have been available for adoption for over 30 days, until this fund is depleted. At this time the spay/neuter reimbursement fees are still being waived for the felines. We will continue to waive the spay/neuter fees until the Linda Hedges/Mary Ellinger Memorial fund is depleted. We have truly seen a dramatic increase in the feline adoptions since we’ve been able to waive the spay/neuter fees for them, let’s see if it helps with their barking friends. If you’d like to make a contribution to help either of these funds continue, please make sure that you let us know that it’s for the fund. You can stop by, call us, email us, Facebook us, or reach out on the “Contact Us” form on our website for help.

Did ya know… Cupid is soon going to be upon us, and while next week we may once again talk about the dangers of chocolate, certain plants, gifts and decorations, have you ever considered making a special Valentine’s Day which includes your furkid? There are plenty of fun, exciting, and romantic dates for dog lovers out there, including some where your dogs (some cats can be a bit more difficult to take along) can go too. Look up the nearest dog friendly trail, or park. They are full of interesting sights and smells, particularly if you’re a dog, and room for running and playing games. You and your date can toss Frisbees, take a leisurely stroll with your dogs, or just kick back for some entertaining dog-watching as long as the temps allow it. Dog-friendly bars and restaurants. More and more establishments are realizing the value of setting a place at the table for dogs. Go shopping together. Pet stores are always dog-friendly zones; check out fun new products together, scope out the fish and birds available for sale, you may even get a little paw mani-pedi together! Are there any dog shows or performance competitions going on? Whether it’s a low-key obedience match or an exciting agility, dock diving, or herding trials, it’s a great place to bond over your passion. Go on a Picnic if weather permits (hey this is Nebraska, ya just never know). There is nothing more traditionally romantic that going on a picnic date, and it’s super easy to take the dog along.

HAPPY TAILS! The following pets were adopted: Charlie, Zeb, Runa, Moto Moto, Tango, Earfiren, Miss Khat, Moybo, Lexi, Patrick and Molly!
