Scooby is a big boy with even bigger heart


Hello Winston:

My name is Scooby. I am a big boy but don’t let my size intimidate you; I am a big love who enjoys meeting new people and getting cuddles and attention!

I like to be outside and play with the staff whenever I can get the chance. I get along with most of the dogs here at the shelter but a proper meet and greet would be required. I am not a fan of kitties but that shouldn’t be a deal breaker!

Stop by the shelter and ask to see me in the yard.

I came into the shelters as a stray back in June, I’m a pit bull mix and weigh in at a healthy 67 pounds. I am 3-years-old and a male as you already know!

Please Winston, tell your readers to stop by and see me. I promise they will be happy they did!

Love, Scooby 

Winston says:  

Hi Scoob! Thank you for writing. If I am not mistaken this is your second time to shine in the pet personals spotlight so hopefully this time will do it and you find a home young man!

Big and lovable, that’s you. Readers, stop down to see this handsome lad and help make his dreams come true. I thank you, the shelter staff thanks you and of course, he thanks you!

Sincerely, Winston

Donate (You can specify where you would like your donation to go: Medical Fund, Spay/Neuter Fund, Building Fund or General Fund) 

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 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.

The Humane Society of Rome Shelter, 6247 Lamphear Road is open from Tuesday - Saturday from 11 a.m. - 5 p.m., Sunday from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. For information, contact the shelter staff at 315-336-7070.
