George, adoptable from Upper Valley Humane Society

November is “Adopt a Senior Pet Month” and we’re celebrating with half price adoption fees on all cats 8 years and up!

George is about 14 years old and has been blind most of his life. He likes to spend his time relaxing, playing with mice toys, and hanging around his human friends.

George would prefer to be your only pet. If you’d like to add a sweet senior cat to your family, George is who you need! 

(George 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.)

Baloo, adoptable from Lucy Mackenzie Humane Society

“Hi! My name’s Baloo and I’m a 3-year-old neutered male that came to Lucy Mackenzie as a stray. I can’t imagine still being homeless, because I absolutely L-O-V-E people! I’m so happy to not be living outside on my own anymore.

“So much has happened since I’ve been here — I’ve been neutered, vaccinated and tested for feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV). It’s a good thing, too, because I tested positive for it. Don’t worry, though: FIV-positive cats can live as long and healthy a life as non-infected cats, and we have the same needs as as any other cat. I should always be kept indoors, and should only live with other FIV-positive cats. My human friends here at the shelter can answer any question you may have it.

“What I can tell you is that I promise to bring my new family lots of joy.  If you’re looking for a new loving feline best friend, stop in and meet me today!”

(Baloo 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.)

Melody, adoptable from Sullivan County Humane Society

“I am 3-year-old Melody. My owners moved out and left me behind in one of the local apartment complexes. Fortunately, a kind neighbor realized what happened and reached out for help and now I am here — where it is warm and I get lots of food and love!

“I am a sweetheart and they tell me that I am very cute — especially since I do not have a tail.

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

(Melody 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.)
