Somerset Humane Society Pet of the Week

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

Sponsored by Hight Ford

The Somerset Humane Society in Skowhegan will be sharing 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:


Type of Pet: Cat
Breed & Known for: Domestic Long Hair Tortie
Name (pronunciation if needed): Vera
Age: 10 years old
Best-Fit Home: Vera is requesting to be in a home with her brother, Armani (currently at the shelter).
Personality Traits: Vera is very friendly and loves to sit in your lap and steal all of the attention, she loves to be other cats as well.
Exercise & Grooming Needs: Regular nail clipping and brushing.
Special Needs & Diet: He is currently eating a dye-free cat food.
Skills/Talents/House Broken: Ravi is litter box trained.
Adoption Cost/Fees: Loco’s adoption fee is only $40.00 at this time.

Note: Please remember when you come in to adopt a dog from us, bring a collar and leash with you. We will need to keep ours for reuse.

Stop in to see all of our cats that have $40 adoption fees.

Extra bonus…anyone that adopts a pet from us and mentions that they heard about us from Mix 107.9 will get an extra $5 off the adoption fee.

Current Shelter Needs:

  • Cat litter
  • No-dye dry cat food
  • 30-gallon trash bags
  • Dish soap
  • Laundry detergent

We are also always in need of people to sponsor cat spaying and neutering. This is also a great way to help a specific cat at the shelter if you are unable to adopt. $80 will spay a female and $40 will neuter a male.

Fundraising Events & Public Announcements:

The Somerset Humane Society has teamed up with Funds 2 Orgs again this year and we are starting to collect shoes!

Shoes can be donated as long as the sole is still intact and not torn. It is fine if they are dirty as long as they are in reusable condition. They can be dropped off at the Shelter anytime.
