Big Red, adoptable from Upper Valley Humane Society

“Hey, hey, hey! I’m Big Red, nice to meet ya! I am quite the special cat, if I do say so myself.

“I made a trip up north here from down south, and I must say I love it here! I’ve lived here at this shelter for a while and really become close with my human friends; they always know just what I need. I have to have a special food, and they make sure I get the best of the best. I’ve heard them say I need to exercise a little bit, but that’s OK because I love to follow them around everywhere.

“I’ve met cats here and I’m a little picky about my feline friends, but I do like laid back, respectful dogs.

“If you’re looking for a talkative feline friend, stop looking — I’m the man!”

(Big Red 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.)

Bucky, adoptable from Sullivan County Humane Society

“I am 5-year-old Bucky. I was surrendered with Rigby, Moana, Pipurr and Pipurr’s babies, Mickey and Minnie, when our mom had to be moved into a nursing home.

“We are all very nice cats and would love a furr-ever home of our own!

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

(Bucky 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

Tiger, adoptable from Lucy Mackenzie Humane Society

“Hi! My name’s Tiger and I’m 13-year-old neutered male. I know — I don’t look 13, do I?

“I was adopted from Lucy Mackenzie more than a decade ago. I lived well in my home until I started having issues with the children that would come to visit. Unfortunately, we couldn’t come to an agreement, so I came back here.

“It’s true — in my new home, I’ll have to live with adults only. The good part is that I’m incredibly affectionate, handsome and will make adults very, very happy. I promise to bring lots of love and joy along with me.

“If you have room in your home and heart for a deserving senior (that neither looks nor acts like a senior!), stop in and meet me today!”

(Tiger 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.)

Montana, adoptable from White River Animal Rescue

Montana is a beautiful, 6-year-old girl with a great smile. Montana is a sweet girl, who really loves to go on walks and hikes and loves to swim! Montana can be a bit shy and would prefer to be the only dog.

(Please go to White River Animal Rescue’s website at to fill out an application. We will contact you for an interview once your application has been reviewed. Our adoption fee is $500 and the minimum age for adopting is 28. To adopt a puppy under 5 months, you must be able to be home with them or take them to work with you.
