Classic Hits and the Best of Today

Join The Mix 107.9 each Monday for our special Pet of the Week

Sponsored by Hight Ford

Each week, the Somerset Humane Society in Skowhegan shares with us a special animal that is ready to find 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:


Somerset Humane Society Pet of the Week
