Looking for a new home

Dear Winston:

My name is Anya. My name is pronounced “ON-YA.” I am a 4-year-old Foxhound, American Mix female canine. I originally was brought into the shelter as a stray back during the 2018 Christmas season and I found a home! Unfortunately, I was recently brought back to the shelter due to unforeseen owner circumstances. So I am ready for another new home! 

I am a little shy when meeting new people and also when in a new environment. I do warm up pretty quickly though.

I love the great outdoors and enjoy walking on a leash or a harness. I get along very well with both cats and dogs!

The kennel staff would be more than happy to set up a proper ‘meet and greet,’ so Winston, please send everyone down to meet me!

I can’t wait! Thank you so much.

Love, Anya

Cat’s Pride Little
for Good Program

The Humane Society of Rome participates with Cat’s Pride Litter for Good Program, and it’s received 4,000 pounds of cat litter due to nominations from the community. This is an ongoing promotion. The more nominations, the more litter the society receives. Litter as you can imagine, is a great expense for for the Humane Society, so this would be a wonderful savings for our shelter. 

The public is invited to participate as follows: 

1. Go to and sign up for the free Cat’s Pride Club 

2. Click on the “Nominate” button to help us receive litter. 

3. Enter bonus code: 4GOOD and you will double your shelter nomination.

Thank you! 

The Humane Society Shelter is so grateful for those who take the time to care and to share...from the monetary donations to the countless donations requested on our wish list…it all makes a big difference to our animals. It makes their lives so much better.

While we provide only a temporary home for them, we want to be certain it is the best they can have for now. When you make a donation to the shelter, you can be assured that it is earmarked for exactly what you wish, whether it’s for the Medical Fund, Spay-Neuter Fund, Building Fund, or General Fund.

The Humane Society appreciates everything the public does for it, as it is a not-for-profit organization and the expenses are oftentimes monumental. The day to day costs of running a shelter is something that must be met. The cats and dogs must be fed, must have heat, must have medicine, must have staff to care for them. The society is in great need of general donations at this time, more than ever.
