Springfield Humane Society

Who is more likely to be adopted - a black lab mix or a yellow lab mix? A black cat or a calico cat? Unfortunately black dogs and cats are least likely to be adopted from shelters. Why? No one truly knows but it is the same across the country. Eighteen of our 59 cats and kittens are black or black and white and keep getting passed over by most adopters. So, it is time for a black cat special in time for after Halloween. Nov. 1-15 all black cats and kittens are 1/3 off regular adoption fee. This is not to de-value these amazing companions, simply a ploy to hopefully find them homes along with all the others!

Lovely Luna is a three-year-old sweet female who has been with us for several months. She is a perfect companion and gets along with the other dozen cats in her community room. Room in your home and heart for a black cat or two? If not how about yellow tiger, grey tiger.

Our next low cost S\N Clinic will be Dec. 7 in Springfield. They fill fast so reserve your space now by calling 802-885-2174. The next one will be in February.

Have a hard to gift person on your list for birthdays, anniversaries, or any holiday? We have nice gift cards so you can make a donation to us in their name! One size fits all. Stop by the Shelter to get yours or call Tom 802-885-2174 to have one or more sent your way.

We really need canned cat food (not kind with gravy) and paper towels. Also sealable plastic totes and dryer sheets.
