News from the Springfield Humane Society

Martha came to us as a stray in September, along with her three kittens who were only a couple of days old. She was so thin she had been unable to feed them. In spite of her care and our efforts to feed them they didn't make it, but she is doing well and recovering from her hard life.

Now she lives in the community room and gets along well with others. She likes to go out in the outdoor pen and watch the leaves and birds fly by. She is a sweet girl who is sometimes a little skittish about being picked up. She does however, love to be petted. Call the Springfield Humane Society at 885-3997.

Twelve adoptions last week! How happy we are to have found so many great homes for our animal friends. These lucky critters now have families to share the Holidays with. We'd dearly love to find a loving home for all of our homeless waifs. If you want to be part of our Home for the Holidays campaign, visit the shelter. Please, until there are none...adopt one.

Did you know? The Springfield Humane Society receives no government funding or financial support from national organizations like the HSUS or ASPCA. We rely solely on the support of our members, friends and fund raising events. It takes over $200,000 a year to keep the shelter and organization going. It takes a lot of effort to keep the doors open for the animals and people who need our vital services.

We badly need a new small canister vacuum cleaner, canned cat food and brooms. Thanks to everyone who helps us this way. Shelter hours are Wednesday to Saturday, noon to 4:30 p.m., www.spfldhumane.org or call 885-3997.
