Mountain Humane Recognized For Community Improvement!

Mountain Humane has been presented with the Community Improvement Award by The Chamber at their annual Business and Community Awards Celebration!

The purpose of this award is to recognize a business or organization for excellence in new construction, building rehabilitation or community infrastructure.

We are so proud of the efforts we have made to support the people and pets of this community and beyond!

Staff Pick: Grey!

It’s time for our weekly Staff Pick! Nadia, Stephanie, and Kelly are featuring Grey!

We LOVE Grey so much!! He has been an “office foster cat” for only a few short weeks, and although he was shy at first, he has already managed to steal the hearts of 3 very finicky ladies.

Grey is extremely smart, and never involved in office politics. Oh and by the way he is extremely handsome and velvety soft!
He spends his days resting at his desk, hunting bugs and greeting visitors with such a sweet, tender spirit! Not to mention he is pretty darn handsome.

He is neat and tidy, and obeys all of our office rules… And we probably don’t have to tell you how handsome he is….
He is the envy of all of his colleagues and admired by his peers; pure 4-legged “office eye candy”!

Although Grey takes every day in stride, we think he would prefer a home with his fur-ever family over the daily grind of shelter work.

Staff Pick: Cinder!

Happy Caturday! This week we are sharing our Marketing Coordinator’s staff pick, Cinder! Here is what Cyndy had to say about him:
 
Cinder is an absolute cuddle-bug. He would never pass up a moment to give you chin kisses or fuzzy cuddles. It’s not just me or because he is my namesake, Cinder is a definite staff favorite around here. Who couldn’t love a kind gentleman that melts the heart of everyone he meets? I wouldn’t waste another moment to see Cinder, he’s everything you could ask for in a kitty!

Stop by Mountain Humane for a tour!

Have you seen our new facility? We are offering tours to share our amazing new space with the public!
From adopting a pet, volunteering your time, hanging out with adoptables, joining us for events, and so much more – there are many ways to interact with Mountain Humane. You can help us connect more pets and people for a better community!
 
Join us for a tour on Saturdays at noon, or Thursdays at 4 PM.

November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month!

This November, consider giving a home to an older animal during Adopt a Senior Pet Month!

While the kittens and puppies often get all the attention, you’d be surprised how well an older animal might fit into your lifestyle. Often, they have mellowed out and they don’t need all the extra playtime or attention a puppy or kitten would require. They also often come with good manners and training already accomplished!

 

Here are our Super Seniors just waiting for you to come to meet them!

Happy National Cat Day!

It’s National Cat Day and our adoption counselors are excited to share a few of their current favorite feline adoptables! Don’t forget there is still a couple of days left in our “Witchcats & Wizardry” interactive event. Stop by, visit with some cats, enjoy a cup of coffee (or a Butter Brew Latte!), and enter the raffle for the sword of Gryffindor!

Alisa & Daphne

“Daphne is like a sweet cup of coffee on a cold day, her cuddles and purrs reach right to your soul.”

Kelsey & Mardi Gras

“Mardi Gras is a beautiful Chimera cat who loves to cuddle up in a nice warm lap for endless cuddles!”

Yamilex & Citroville

“Citrovile is the sweetest/most gentle kitten ever! Even though she is slowly coming out of her shell, she just melts right into your arms the minute you interact with her.”

Lauren & Calablaza

“Calabaza came to us as a very shy, undersocialized kitty. With each day that goes by, he becomes more and more lovable. I love seeing him come out of his shell!”

Happy Tails Update From Nash!

Happy Tails update from Nash!

“I’ve had him a little over a year and a half now and every day I love him more – even though each day I don’t think it’s possible.

Thank you a million times. Nash has literally saved me. He sleeps with me every night and we go for long walks every day. He goes everywhere with me – he is never left by himself – he doesn’t like to be left. I hope I am giving him half of what he has given me. He is the best dog I’ve ever had and I’m so thankful for him and for your organization that brought him to me. He has the best personality and every day I wonder how anyone could drop him off – he is just the funniest, most loving dog ever!

If I ever win the lottery or even get money ahead, I will give you what I can. Bless you people for what you do. I cannot tell you what your kindness and hard work have done for me personally – because of you people, I have the best companion ever.

I’ve attached a picture of Nash and the funny way he sits. He just is a blessing in so many ways. Thank you!!”

Staff Pick of the Week: Delilah

It’s time for our weekly Staff Pick!
Here is what our Kennel Supervisor, Lauren had to say about Delilah:

Delilah is one of my favorite residents because she has such a good soul. She may take a minute to warm up and get to know you, but once she does you’ll be best friends for life. She’ll be the girl to dance around the kitchen with you while you cook, or snuggle up and watch Netflix on a rainy day.

Delilah, like all of us, just wants to be loved and to have a warm home to call her own. She is a little shy at first, but if you give her a chance, I assure you, you won’t be disappointed.

Long Road Home: Meet Delilah

This is the first episode in our Long Road Home series! Every month, we’ll be highlighting one of our longest term residents. This month, we’re highlighting adoptable dog Delilah. Delilah has been with us since May 2019 and has really come out of her shell.

From learning new behaviors with our training team, opening up to our kennel staff, and enjoying some time away from Mountain Humane in a foster home – Delilah has shown what a sweet, cuddly, warm dog she truly is. Learn more about Delilah here: mountainhumane.org/adoptable-pet/meet-delilah/
