Beautiful Dani is back in the spotlight, hoping for a home


Hi everyone:

It’s Winston here. Once in a great while, we feature one of our shelter animals for a second time, and we are doing so with the lovely Miss Dani! She is pure white and living large! This beauty is a 6-year-old female ready to meet you.

This sweet lady would do best sharing her home as the only cat in the castle. Please call us 315-336-7070 to set up an appointment for a meet and greet!

Winston says more

Well, readers it sure has been a heck of a year. Whew! We know that the pandemic affected everyone in many different ways, whether it caused people to lose their jobs and income, to dealing with sickness, to having to move…….. all of these life changing events affect our pets. Please know that if you cannot care for your pet because of any unfortunate circumstance, please bring them to us!

We will house and feed them, give them all of the comforts they need to get by until they are adopted. Please, under no circumstances, put your cat or dog out on the streets. That is cruel and inhumane treatment — especially in the wintertime — and the animal will suffer greatly. There is no reason to go to that extreme. It’s important that you remember to let us know if you need assistance. We are here for you!

Thank you, Winston and the entire staff at the Humane Society of Rome.

Adoption updates

Cats — Bai, Robert, Daisy, Skittles, Penelope Polkadot, Peyton Piper, Missy, Felix, Sassy, Flower, Downey, Stark, Gorilla

Dogs — Gizzy, Nicholas.


Because it’s such a hectic time of year and in keeping with the CDC’s health and safety guidelines, we kindly ask that anyone interested in visiting our shelter, to please make an appointment first. This goes for dropping off animals, for possible meet and greets for adoption purposes and for making donations.  

It would make things go so much more smoothly with appointments set in place. Also, if you happen to stop by without an appointment we may ask for your patience and to please wait in your car until we wait on the person ahead of you.  

We apologize for any inconvenience, and thank you for your understanding.

Cat’s Pride
Litter program

We participate with Cat’s Pride Litter for Good Program — we’ve received 4,000 pounds of cat litter due to nominations from the community.

This is an ongoing promotion. The more nominations, the more litter we receive.

Litter as you can imagine, is a great expense for us, 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. 

4. Buy a green jug of Cat’s Pride Fresh and Light – every time you do, another pound of litter is added to the total amount donated
