Named for one of the kindest Door County Humane Society (DCHS) volunteers, Loretta embodies the same sweetness as her namesake. This is a pure white shorthair female cat that was trapped along Highway DK in Brussels and brought into the DCHS in late June. Discovered to be pregnant when she arrived, Loretta lost all the kittens during an emergency cesarean so she was quiet and sad for a while. Now after her spay surgery and all the vaccinations, Loretta’s doing so well that she was granted full lobby-roving privileges. Loretta is 7 pounds, loving, and looking for her new home.

Crosby, a black Labrador mix, is an absolute doll, if one can say that about 90 pounds of canine affection. A stray from the Clark Lake area, the DCHS used radio and Facebook trying to find his owner but to no avail. Crosby has been neutered and now is available to a new family that will love and protect him. At 2 to 4 years old, Crosby will be a boon companion for many years.

Adoption costs are $85 for cats and kittens, $125 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. For more information call 920.746.1111 or visit

The Door County Humane Society will be serving beer and stuffed pretzels at their Fall Fest booth on Saturday and Sunday in Sister Bay. New logo merchandise and stocking stuffers will also be available for purchase.
