The Bangor Humane Society desperately needs the local community to adopt a shelter pet. Currently, the Bangor Humane Society has over 100 cats and kittens available for adoption along with dozens of dogs. They also have a waiting list of 150 cats and nearly 50 dogs needing to be surrendered for rehoming. There are also many more residing in foster care.
In an effort to find new homes for their current adoptive pets and to help the many more waiting in need of rehoming, the Bangor Humane Society is again offering an August Back to School adoption promotion. Cats 7 months and older are only $5, and all large breed dogs 7 months and older are “Name your own fee” with a minimum of $25. Of course, the Humane Society encourages those who can afford to donate more to do so, as all adoption fees go toward the care of the many cats currently in care of the Humane Society. The discount program is effective for the entire month of August.
All animals adopted from the Bangor Humane Society are vaccinated, spayed/neutered and behavior evaluated.
In addition to the animals available at the Humane Society, they hope to increase adoptions by expanding their offsite adoption partners. Additional adoptable felines from BHS are located at Petquarters, Petco, and Petsmart onStillwater AveinBangor.
They also have relaunched their mobile adoption program, Cats on Tour, to take adoptable felines across outlier cities in their service area to increase adoptions by bringing the felines right to the adopter. Adoptions are done right out of the BHS van at various business locations. Check the website www.bangorhumane.org for upcoming tour dates.
The next Cats on Tour event is scheduled for this Saturday, Aug. 17th at the Tractor Supply in Millinocket from 11-4 pm.
