Kade seeks a new home
Hi everyone! Happy July!
My name is Kade (the shelter staff calls me “Kader Pants”), and I’ve been living at the Humane Society shelter since Mid-May. I am an almost three year old Shepard mix male canine.
I am looking for someone special to show me a lot of affection and also someone who has patience and time to spend with me. I would fit in very well in a home with older children. I get along well with other dogs. I love car rides and due to the wonderful kennel staff, my leash manners have improved considerably!
My favorite toys to play with are anything that makes noise and squeaks! I would love to find a family to fit in with and call my own. Thank you so much for your time and I look forward to a meet and greet with someone soon!
Happy tails, Kade
Happy July to you as well, Kade! It sounds to me like you have a whole checklist of positive qualities! Good with other dogs, good on a leash, good with car rides, and playful. Readers, do yourselves a huge favor and stop by and visit Kade. Even if he is not a perfect
match for you, maybe one of his friends will be! You never know until you stop by. Good luck, Kade! Love & Happy Summer! Winston

Ways you can
help the shelter
Become a member!
Donate! (You can specify where you would like your donation to go: Medical Fund, Spay/Neuter Fund, Building Fund or General Fund)
Also, did you know that if you love animals but cannot adopt at this time, you can still help?
The Humane Society of Rome also offers a sponsorship program, where people can sponsor the cost of an animal while it is living at the shelter (pay the expenses for their food, medical care, etc); or sponsor an animal’s adoption fee or sponsor an animal’s spaying or neutering fee.
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 the Humane Society, so this would be a wonderful savings for our shelter.
The public is invited to participate as follows:
1. Go to catspride.com 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.

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.
