Midnight, adoptable from Lucy Mackenzie Humane Society

“Hi! My name’s Midnight and I’m a 10-year-old spayed female.

“I originally came to Lucy Mackenzie in 2015 because the youngest family member became sick and they soon realized it was because he was allergic to cats. I was adopted last year and returned several months later because the family I was living with had to move. Now, I’m back here looking for my new home!

“I live in one of the communal cat rooms where there are many nice places to take naps and lots of people come to visit. I tend to keep to myself and in my new home, I’d be most comfortable being the only cat or living with another calm cat.

“I may be older, but I have lots of life to live and lots of love to give. If you’re looking for an adorable senior gal that would love to live out her golden years in the comfort of a home, stop in and meet me today!”

Midnight 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.

Rex, adoptable from Upper Valley Humane Society

“Pssssst … over here! Hi, my name is Rex!

“I’m the type of guy who likes to keep things on the down low. Too much commotion can make me bonkers! I enjoy spending my time exploring, and I’m always curious to find out what everyone is up to.

“I am one of the last two small animals at UVHS right now, along with another sweet white 1-year-old guinea pig named Woody. He likes to take his time getting to know people, but don’t be fooled — Woody loves to cuddle once he’s comfortable. However, he would prefer to be the only guinea pig in my new home. 

“If one of us sound like your perfect pet, come on down to the shelter to meet us! We would love to go home with you.”

Rex (and Woody) are 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.

Chuck, adoptable from Sullivan County Humane Society

“I am 3-year-old Chuck. I appeared on someone’s porch with a bloody face and head from a wound behind my ear. Before they could get me to safety, I disappeared. But two weeks later I reappeared with a huge scabbed ear, and this time I stuck around.

“They called the humane society and immediate plans went into action to get me off the streets — and fortunately they worked. I was then taken to the vet where they examined and cleaned my wound. It looks like I cut my ear on something —probably in the shed that I used to sleep in — but I am on the road to a full recovery!

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

Chuck 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 and Facebook. Call 603-542-3277 or email
