Lucky graduated to being a lobby cat last week after meowing at her cage door for awhile, and what a delight for everyone who meets her! This 11-pound, brown and white tabby is so social that she prefers to be held like a baby, letting out little squeaks of joy at the special attention. The two- to four-year-old girl will have no trouble making the transition to a new home.

On the morning of July 5, the shelter staff arrived to find a black dog huddled in one of the outdoor kennels. A little hand-written note was stuffed in the entrance door, saying that her name was Pandora. Her owner had moved into a small apartment and could not give Pandora the exercise she needed. The Humane Society exists to take care of animals that have nowhere else to go, and the kennel staff immediately brought Pandora inside, gave her a warm blanket and breakfast. Pandora is a 45-pound spaniel mix with a shiny long black coat and expressive face. She has been good on leash walks and responds well to her name. Pandora has been vaccinated and is scheduled to be spayed.

Adoption costs are $85 for cats and kittens, $120 for dogs, and $60 for puppies. All animals are vaccinated, and spayed or neutered. Dogs have had a behavioral assessment.

The Door County Humane Society, located at 3475 Park Drive (County PD) 
in Sturgeon Bay, is open for adoption Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from noon – 4 pm.

Volunteers are needed to help on Friday, August 5 at “Rockin for the Shelter” in Sister Bay. For more information or to volunteer call the shelter at 920.746.111.
