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.

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, Zeb, Doug, Dardaen, Moybo, Harley and Hondo. 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 you know… As the weather stays cold, we humans tend to stay inside where it’s warm. Many of us are lucky enough to enjoy winter comforts like heating, fireplaces, blankets, and warm places to sleep. But for small animals that live outside, such as cats and rodents, finding a cozy place to sleep isn’t as easy. This is why drivers often find cats in car engines looking for a warm place to hide from frigid temperatures. Of course, this behavior can be deadly for the animal. Luckily, there are some things you can do before driving off to check that no critters are hiding under your hood. Some examples are; banging on the hood of your car, honking your horn, opening and closing your hood, and covering your car. These things may help save a small animal’s life.

HAPPY TAILS! The following pets were adopted: Franbo, Raisin, Cookie, Duffy, Vinnie and Woody!
