The Somerset Humane Society in Skowhegan will be sharing with us a special animal that is ready to find themselves a new loving family.
Stop by each week for pictures and information to find a cuddly new furry friend! Plus, if you adopt their "Pet of the Week" you'll receive a special discount on the adoption fee!
This week's Pet that needs a loving home is Denali!!

Exercise & Grooming needs: Denali is a clean cat and doesn't mind getting her nails clipped
Special Needs & Diet: She is not a special needs cat.

We will have our Luck of the Draw Auction on April 5, 2014 at the American Legion in Skowhegan. We are not hosting this event; it is being done for us, but we are accepting donations. Donations can be brought to the Humane Society. Any and all is appreciated!
Don't forget, if your pet is missing, please call the Animal Control Officer for your town and the shelter that is contracted with your town immediately. The sooner you call, the better chance we have of being able to help you.
Please remember when you come in to adopt a dog from us, bring a collar and leash with you, we need to be able to keep ours to reuse.
