Say ‘hello’ to sweet cuddlebug Bonza


Dear Winston:

Hello, my name is Bonza. I am a 3-year-old female feline who was brought into the shelter as a stray. I am looking for someone who is low key like I am, someone that I can just snuggle up and take a nice long nap with. I would absolutely adore being the only pet in a home with no small children.

If you would like love and affection from a sweet cuddle buddy than I am the perfect one for you! Winston, please tell your readers to come and visit me and see if there is a match. Thank you ever so much!

Love, Bonza 

Dear Bonza:

Hello my dear and thank you for writing! What a great photo! I am sure there are a lot of people reading this that would love to have you as the “lady of the house” in their home! Good Luck to you! Winston

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 tocatspride.comand 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.

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.

We appreciate everything you do for us, as we are not-for-profit 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. We are in great need of general donations at this time, more than ever. Thank you as always for thinking of us!
