My name is Dodge, and I have been living at the shelter since the beginning of March. I am 5-years-old, a black-and-white male terrier/American Pit Bull mix. I am incredibly sweet and extremely playful.
I love to go for long walks and play with squeaky toys. The staff here has nicknamed me Wiggle Monster! I think that’s a compliment! I do like other animals but a meet and greet would be great.
Other things I enjoy: bath time, rub downs, bubbles and just enjoying the water. I am ready to play! Come and see me!

Winston: More ways
to help the shelter
Did you know that if you love animals but cannot adopt at this time, you can still help? In fact, there are plenty of ways for people to help.
We offer a wonderful sponsorship program.
Sponsor the cost of an animal while it is living at the shelter (pay the expenses for their food, medical care, etc.)
Sponsor an animal’s adoption fee
Sponsor an animal’s spaying or neutering fee.
It is important to explore your options so that both you and the animals receive the full benefit of any considered gift.
The Humane Society of Rome, New York, Inc. strongly encourages you to consult with an attorney or other expert of your choice.
The Humane Society of Rome participates in the Cat’s Pride Litter for Good Program.
And, so far, the shelter has 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.

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