Miss Roxie has been at Mountain Humane far too long – and she wants to start putting herself out there more in hopes of finding her perfect family. This girl is equal parts sweet, adorable, and playful. Check out her video below, then come meet her in person!
Big news everyone – there are still two days left in the year and we’ve already hit the monthly adoption goal of 50 pets finding their new families! It’s not too late to scoop up a new family member before the end of 2018 or to make a donation to make more connections possible!
At Mountain Humane, we strive to make every connection possible. From staff bottle feeding kittens in their own homes, volunteers stepping up to foster pets with special needs, and taking leaps most wouldn’t with animals who have extra medical needs. Check out the video below highlighting just a few stories about former feline residents who had some extra help along the way from the Mountain Humane family in order to find a Happy Tails story of their own.
Thank you to everyone who has brought gifts to fill up our tree for the adoptable animals!

It's the most wonderful time of the year! What better way to celebrate than to bring a new family member home for the holidays? Tomorrow, December 22nd, we're holding a special "Home for the Holidays" adoption event! All day long, all senior pets (7 years and older) and cats over 1 year will have ZERO adoption fees! Not only that, but all kittens will be adopt one and the adoption fee of your second kitten will be waived (kittens do really well when adopted in pairs!).
The first 10 adopters will get a free Mountain Humane gift of your choice (coffee mug, beanie, hat, etc!).
Need help getting into that festive spirit? Check out this adorable video of a group of Sage School students who came to Mountain Humane to sing holiday carols to the adoptable animals and staff! You can help support things like humane education programs, adoption programs, and more by donating to Mountain Humane this season!

Last month our Volunteer Coordinator, Jenny Gardenswartz, was selected to attend the Maddie’s Fund Optimizing Volunteer Engagement Apprenticeship at PAWS Chicago. She was chosen from an application pool of over 100 volunteer managers across the country, her and four others were selected and given grants to attend the three-day intensive apprenticeship!
Below, Jenny gives us a brief description of her experience at PAWS Chicago:
“Each day was more inspiring than the next, but we never lost focus of what was most important: how to recruit, train and retain volunteers in meaningful service. We first heard from the founder of PAWS Chicago, Paula Fasseas, and she set the tone for the seminar by reiterating that our organizations aren’t able to accomplish anything without our volunteers. We learned how to better incorporate our mission statements into opportunities, best social media practices, attended a new volunteer orientation to see how PAWS introduces volunteers to service, compassion fatigue resources, software updates, building strong staff/volunteer relations, scheduling inspiration, and an in-depth focus on Junior Volunteers (and more!). The timing of my attending this apprenticeship couldn’t be better as we look forward to our new future across the street!”
Special thanks to Maddie’s Fund for making this possible!
Who is Maddie’s Fund:
Maddie’s Fund® is a family foundation created in 1994 by Workday® co-founder Dave Duffield and his wife, Cheryl, who have endowed the Foundation with more than $300 million. Since then, the Foundation has awarded more than $225.7 million in grants toward increased community lifesaving, shelter management leadership, shelter medicine education, and foster care across the U.S. The Duffields named Maddie’s Fund after their Miniature Schnauzer Maddie, who always made them laugh and gave them much joy. Maddie was with Dave and Cheryl for ten years and continues to inspire them today.
Maddie’s Fund is the fulfillment of a promise to an inspirational dog, investing its resources to create a no-kill nation where every dog and cat is guaranteed a healthy home or habitat. #ThanksToMaddie.
