Frankie and Johnny, adoptable from Upper Valley Humane Society

“Hi, we’re Frankie and Johnny. We are two 8-year-old bonded cats who have spent our whole lives together!

“We like to spend our time exploring, snuggling and hanging out with human friends. We would like a home that’s laid back with lots of room to explore.

“We have seemed to like other cats we’ve met here, and dogs pending introductions.

“If you’d like two sweet and snuggly girls, then come meet us today!”

Frankie and Johnny 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.

Ellie, adoptable from Sullivan County Humane Society

“I am 2-year-old Ellie. I am a sweet girl but I do not like dogs. My family adopted me from another rescue that told them I was fine with dogs. They tried and tried to make it work, but I will have no part of canines! So, here I am.

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

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

Mooney, adoptable from River Valley Animal Protection League

M-O-O-N, that spells love. Or at least it does for this super cool cat. Mooney is a confident, smooth operating kind of guy, with piercing green eyes, lustrous black fur and a serious attraction to women with brushes. He is an affectionate fellow who enjoys grooming and petting sessions, often engaging in copious head-bunting of people and surrounding objects.

He is also a fierce hunter! His favorite prey is a certain fluffy, green mouse that he likes to carry around in his mouth after “catching” it. It’s likely that Mooney would make an excellent mouser.

Mooney gets along well with easygoing cats, but less so with other dominant personalities. He does especially well with his friend, Pinto, and has lived in community rooms with other shelter cats before.

If you’d like a fun, well rounded, Jack-of-all-cat-trades kind of cat, Mooney might be your guy.

Mooney is up for adoption from the River Valley Animal Protection League, located at 60 Cummings Ave. in Charlestown and open to the public Mondays, 4-7 p.m., and Saturdays, 1-4 p.m., or by appointment by calling 603-826-3061. The River Valley Animal Protection League is also on Facebook.

Porter, adoptable from Lucy Mackenzie Humane Society

“Hi! My name is Porter and I’m a 2-year-old neutered male that came to Lucy Mackenzie as a stray.

“I was really scared when I first arrived here, but things are becoming easier and much better every day! I’ve recently moved in to one of the main cat rooms here at the shelter and really like the other cats I’m living with. I tend to keep to myself most of the time, but come out for pets when people come in to the room.

“I’m still learning to trust people, but have made many good friends. I’m playful and sweet, and very much look forward to finding a home and family to call my own.

“If you’ve been looking for a deserving and loving feline to call your own, stop in and meet me today.”

Porter 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.
