Found Kittens?

KITTENS. Everyone is finding kittens. Local rescues are full. There are not enough fosters.

Options: 1. Foster the kittens for a rescue 2. Use your network of people to find a foster for the kittens 3. Get on waiting lists with a rescue 4. (our favorite) Foster/find a foster and re-home the kittens – please make sure they get spayed/neutered. Yes, we know they aren’t your cats – but not ensuring they get fixed will increase the likelihood that you will find more kittens in a month, 4 months, a year… The Athens County Humane Society holds low cost clinics all year round. They serve everyone, regardless of income. Charge a re-homing fee to cover your costs.

Our networks are saturated. You have different contacts than we or the rescues have. Please use them to your advantage.

Visit our website for SAFE ways to re-home pets.

THANK YOU for caring and trying to help the helpless.

In Case You Haven’t Heard…

we love puppies

We will never sell ANY live animal for profit. All pets who come from chain pet stores are coming from unsavory conditions and dealers. Use your voice, don’t shop in chains who support misery. Looking for a cat or dog? Adopt through http://www.petfinder.com. Looking for fish or a pocket pet? Our local pet shop Fish N’ Stuff is an ethical shop which carries reptiles and fish. We love Athens because Athens loves LOCALLY OWNED!

What Are You Feeding Your Pet?

Beneful – such a pretty bag! Look at all those veggies and meats! And the price, you would think you are feeding your dog a good-for-him diet right? Unfortunately you would be wrong. Most grocery store foods are not made from quality ingredients. Feed your pets better for LESS at Friendly Paws!
