Little Hat, adoptable from Lucy Mackenzie Humane Society

“Hi! My name’s Little Hat and I’m a 3-year-old neutered male.

“I came to Lucy Mackenzie when the shelter I was staying in closed, and I’m glad I did. I’ve always been a little congested and sneezy, and the doctors here have been trying to make me better. They determined that I have something called chronic rhinitis. It’s not that big of a deal, but it means sometimes I have sneezing spells! I take a little medication every other day to keep things at bay. I live in a condo for the time being so my people-friends can tell if I have a flare-up.

“I am an incredibly sweet and affectionate cat (I just can’t help myself) and I love belly rubs. My ideal home would be one that has lots of soft beds, patches of sun to snooze in, and people that don’t mind an affectionate and sometimes sneezy cat!  If you’ve been looking for a kitty companion that will undoubtedly bring you lots of love and joy, stop in and meet me today.”

Little Hat is up for adoption from Lucy Mackenzie Humane Society, located at 4832 Route 44 in West Windsor and open to the public Tuesday through Saturday, 12-4 p.m. Lucy Mackenzie is also on Facebook and Twitter and can be reached at 802-484-5829.

Hercules and Helen, adoptable from Sullivan County Humane Society

“We are 3-year-old Hercules (long hair) and 3-year-old Helen. We are a bonded pair and need to stay together. Our dad adopted us when we were kittens and tried for years to get us to get along with the resident cat, but unfortunately, we never were able to work out our differences. So here we are!

“We are an adorable duo — if you are looking for two cats, look no further! Helen is very outgoing while Hercules relies on Helen to feel secure. We are vet checked, spayed/neutered, vaccinated for rabies and distemper, treated for fleas and worms, microchipped and FIV/FeLV negative.”

Hercules and Helen are up for adoption from Sullivan County Humane Society, located at 145 Broad St. in Claremont. Please see hours on the humane society website at www.sullivancountyhumanesociety.org and Facebook. Call 603-542-3277 or email sullivanhumane@hotmail.com.

Grey, adoptable from Upper Valley Humane Society

“Hi, my name is Grey. I’m a beautiful 2 year old grey and white cat. I’m the type of girl who likes to take things slow, because new things can be a little scary for me. Once I’m feeling comfortable, I love chin scratches!

“I’ve previously been around other animals and didn’t really seem to like them, so I would like to be the only pet in my new home. If you think you’d like a gal like me, then come see me today.”

Grey is up for adoption from the Upper Valley Humane Society, located at 300 Old Route 10 in Enfield and open to the public Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. The Upper Valley Humane Society is also on Facebook and Instagram and can be reached at 603-448-6888.

Robin, adoptable from Lucy Mackenzie Humane Society

“Hi! My name’s Robin and I’m a 4-year-old neutered male mixed breed dog that came to Lucy Mackenzie as a stray. Life hasn’t always been easy for me, but I’m looking forward to starting over in my new home. I’m a fun-loving, active fella that has tons of potential, and lots of love to give!

“Since I’ve been here, we’ve spent lots of time working on basic behaviors, like how to walk on a leash, how to sit and stay. I’ve come such a far way! I’d be the only animal in my ideal home, and my human would be committed towards continuing my training with me. It would also be nice if I wasn't left alone for long amounts of time, as I’m much happier when I’m around my people.

“All I really need in life is a second chance. If you’ve been looking for a new best friend, stop in and meet me today!”

Robin is up for adoption from Lucy Mackenzie Humane Society, located at 4832 Route 44 in West Windsor and open to the public Tuesday through Saturday, 12-4 p.m. Lucy Mackenzie is also on Facebook and Twitter and can be reached at 802-484-5829.

Chanel, adoptable from Sullivan County Humane Society

“I am 5-year-old Chanel. I was a stray that a nice woman was feeding. She hated to see me live my life as a stray cat but, sadly, could not bring me in because her dogs did not like me.

“I have the sad distinction of being the longest resident at the humane society. The volunteers here say they do not know why, since I am a sweet cat. I can be independent and am content just curled up in a warm spot but I also can be quite affectionate. I would be happiest as the only pet.

“I am vet checked, spayed, vaccinated for rabies and distemper, treated for fleas and worms, microchipped and FIV/FeLV negative!”

Chanel is up for adoption from Sullivan County Humane Society, located at 145 Broad St. in Claremont. Please see hours on the humane society website at www.sullivancountyhumanesociety.org and Facebook. Call 603-542-3277 or email sullivanhumane@hotmail.com.
