Kana2-1

Aren’t I beautiful?! I’m an Argentine Dogo/Shepherd mix. I have a great personality too, which means I’m just an all-around great dog!! Looking for a snuggle buddy? I’m your girl! I love to snuggle on the couch while getting my belly rubbed and falling asleep. I’m VERY smart too! I’ve been training to get my C.L.A.S.S. certification. (For more info on C.L.A.S.S. please ask our dog trainer. She can give you all the details.) I also know many commands, like sit, stay, down, and paw! I’m a pretty quick learner! I also am crate trained and sometimes I just enjoy lying in the crate and chilling out on my own. Please come and visit with me. I’m sure my looks and laid back personality will win your heart over!

Baltimore Humane Society’s Pets of the Week: Natty Beau and Dory

Natty Beau

Hello. My name is Natty Beau and I am a beautiful young Labrador Retriever mix who is friendly and sociable with people. I enjoy tennis balls, rope toys, kongs and nylabones. I am a well behaved boy who knows a few commands like sit and down, and am working on “paw.” I like playing fetch (especially with tennis balls — I have to admit they are my favorite thing). I hope to find a loving, safe and happy forever home with people who want a fun-loving family dog. If I sound like a good fit for you then stop in soon. I’ll be crossing my paws while waiting for you. Hope to see you soon. Thanks!

Messua

Hey there! I’m Messua, a cuddly, 2-month-old kitten looking for my forever home. Could that be you? My foster mom says I am independent and I am so busy that I’m the last to come around for my food. She even says I just stay and hang out when she vacuums. The noise doesn’t even scare me. I am easy going, enjoy being with my siblings, and playing with furry mice toys! Please come out to the shelter and visit me. See you soon!

Kayla

Hi there. I’m Kayla and I came here from another shelter. I’m an active, happy girl who likes going for long walks and playing with stuffed animals, tennis balls, Kongs, and nyla bones. Sometimes I get excited while walking, especially if I see another dog I’d like to meet. In my excitement to play I may also jump a bit and try to grab your hands. In my world, it’s always play time!

If you have other animals, I can be cat tested or have a dog intro to make sure everyone gets along. If you are interested in me please come to BHS soon. Did you see my picture?? How can you resist my beautiful eyes?? 

This Week in Research: Optimism is Good, Cat Poop is Bad

Here’s a reason no one calls cats “[hu]man’s best friend”:  their poop may be toxic to us. And they deposit approximately 1.2 million tons of it into the environment each year. Researchers at Johns Hopkins are doing the heroic work of, uh, digging deeper into the problem of Toxoplasma gondii, a parasite that’s found in feline feces, and that can cause serious health problems.

Ugh, this story makes my blood boil:  earlier this week, a woman in Anne Arundel county noticed that the stray cat she’d been feeding over the past year had been shot with an arrow. Yes, you heard me right:  someone took a bow and arrow, aimed at a fluffy orange tabby, and let fire.

If you’ve always wanted a cat, (and who hasn’t??) now is the time to get one.

To save lives and find homes for hundreds of abandoned and unwanted cats and kittens in Baltimore, the Baltimore Animal Welfare Alliance is holding its fifth annual Baltimore 500: A Race to Save Lives promotion.

During the month of June, national Adopt-A-Cat month, the Maryland SPCA, Baltimore Humane Society and Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter—all members of BAWA—will waive adoption fees for cats and kittens.

“We are now in ‘kitten season’ when there is a surge of adorable, unwanted kittens entering animal shelters that are already full with cats needing homes,” said Aileen Gabbey, Executive Director of the MD SPCA.  “Our goal is to find forever homes for at least 500 homeless cats and kittens in our shelters throughout June, so we encourage people to consider adopting their first cat or adding to their family.”
