We have completed our first project of 2019! We put portals in 58 of our cat kennels. When space allows each cat will be able to have two kennels. One kennel will be for their food, bed and toys, while the other kennel will be for their litter box. Our hope is to reduce the stress level for our kitties that are waiting to be fixed and moved over to Kitty Korner!
We received several Kitty Kasa’s thanks to a few generous donators! Our Kitties in the free roaming rooms will have snuggly “bedrooms” to stay in if they please. They are easy to sanitize and the beds can go right in the wash. We couldn’t be more excited or grateful for these awesome additions to Kitty Korner!
We would like to give a huge thank you to our volunteers and Santa Paws for another successful Pose Your Pets with Santa event! Annually community members, volunteers and Santa Paws get together for a few photos at the Canterbury Inn. This helps raise funds our doggies and kitties here at the shelter. With over twenty participants this year we had a very busy day. We couldn’t be more grateful for the outcome!
The shelter is asking for donations of new Kuranda dog and cat beds, cat towers, mats and more. Please visit our page on the Kuranda website to view all the items on our wishlist, and be sure to share this with your friends and family who are also supporters of the Humane Society.
The dogs and cats thank you in advance!
Thanks to generous donations and one of our dedicated staff members, Kitty Korner got the remodel it needed. With new flooring and paint the lobby is looking better than ever! Don’t worry the dogs are getting some love too. The dog adoption floor is next!
In the beginning of January Lily was brought into the shelter by one of our animal control officers. She was found alone in the rain. Lily was underweight and she had a severe case of mange. Although she has seen some hard times Lily is an absolute sweetheart to everyone she meets. Shortly after coming to the shelter she was lucky enough to find a loving foster mom. Her care included medication and routine medicated baths that her foster mom gave her. She has been a trooper throughout this entire process. After three months of care Lily has gained 18 pounds and her skin has almost completely cleared up. Here are just a few photos of her recovery.
Donations of clumping litter needed
Cats have a reputation for being fussy, but they really only need a few things to be happy: food, shelter, love and litter. Right now, the Humane Society is in dangerous short supply of the last one on that list! That’s why we’re asking for donations of clumping litter of any brand name.
Donations can be dropped off at the shelter office Monday through Friday between the hours of 11am and 6pm, or on Saturdays from 10am to 3pm. People who wish to donate but cannot visit the shelter in person can order the litter online and have it shipped to: Humane Society of Cowlitz County, 909 Columbia Blvd, Longview, WA 98632.
Contributions of supplies like cat litter can save the shelter hundreds of dollars per month, which can make a significant impact on our ability to provide services in other critical areas. Help the kitties and donate litter today!
