Mr. Binx, adoptable from Sullivan County Humane Society

“I am 5-year-old Mr. Binx. 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. Now I am here — where it is warm and I get lots of food and love!

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

(Mr. Binx 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

Cocoa, 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 older!

Cocoa is a sweet 10-year-old cat. She can be a little shy at first and needs to be the only animal in her new home. She enjoys chasing laser pointers, lounging on laps, and making sure she gets plenty of affection.

If you think you’re the perfect person to spoil her, come meet her Tuesday through Saturday, from noon to 4 p.m.

(Cocoa 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.)

Sharon, adoptable from Lucy Mackenzie Humane Society

“Hi! My name’s Sharon and I’m a 5-year-old spayed female. I came to Lucy Mackenzie when I was found living outdoors with some of my kitty friends and family. It wasn’t the safest environment for us, so a nice lady brought us here.

“Things are different here at the shelter, for sure! Every day we’re becoming more comfortable around people. There’s always lots of food and warm, comfortable places to sleep.

“I hope that when I’m adopted that one of my kitty friends can be adopted with me. That would make me really happy.

“If you have room in your home and heart for a shy little kitty (and hopefully one of her kitty friends), stop in and meet me today!”

(Sharon 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.)
