Mae, adoptable from Sullivan County Humane Society

“I am 3-year-old Mae. I had a family that just left me behind when they moved. I do not know why, because I am a good girl!

“I would love a furr-ever home.

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

(Mae 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.)

Spunky, adoptable from Lucy Mackenzie Humane Society

“Hi! My name’s Spunky and I’m a 3-month-old neutered male kitten.

“A nice woman found me, my littermates and mom living outside all on our own. She made sure we made it safely to Lucy Mackenzie and lots has happened since we’ve been here. I’ve been neutered, vaccinated and have received a clear bill of health. Now, I'm available for adoption and ready to find my very own home!

“I live in the kitten room here at the shelter with lots of other kittens. We’re all very playful and kind, and deserving of great homes.

“If you’ve been looking for a new feline companion, stop in and meet me today!”

(Spunky 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.)

Gracie, adoptable from Upper Valley Humane Society

We can’t believe that Gracie is still here! This sweet girl came to UVHS in February. She had been tied up most of her young life, and was a bit of a wild child. After a medical examination, we discovered that she had been born with a hole in her diaphragm and all of her internal organs were pushed up into her chest cavity. 

After surgery and some training from our dedicated staff, Gracie has turned into a snuggle bug who is super smart and loves to learn new things. She’s still a wild child, but she will stop to get a hug or climb into a lap. Gracie will do anything for a treat!

Gracie’s heart has some defects from being crowded into her chest cavity for two years, so no one is sure how much time she has with us. She doesn’t have any restrictions on her playful activities, because we want her to live as happily as possible for however long she has.

Gracie likes to be the center of attention at all times, and does not like to share the spotlight with other pets. She ignores other animals when she is on leash and does well on walks, but she needs to be your only pet at home. 

Our greatest wish is for Gracie to find a family to love her for the rest of her days.

(Gracie 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.)
