Bringing Home Basil

Bringing Home Basil is a  splendid successful adoption story to share. 

When my husband and I decided we were ready for a cat, we knew we wanted to adopt from an area humane society, as we're aware that so many loving animals are anxiously awaiting their forever homes.

After searching available felines on the OMHS website, I called right away to schedule an appointment to meet them. Thanks to Bonnie and Judy, I was able to meet them the very next day and begin the adoption process, which I was so very excited about!

Although many kitties caught my eye while visiting the shelter, I felt a special connection with Basil and knew she was meant to join our family. Judy was very helpful during our adoption of Basil, and made sure we were ready to give her everything she needs.

Of course, Basil (her new name we chose!) took a few days to settle into her new home, but she is doing great and makes us smile and laugh everyday with her fuzzy belly "needs" to be rubbed and sweet purrs when she is relaxed and happy. 

Thank you to OMHS for providing Basil with a safe, clean and loving home before her adoption into our family. We are so in love with our newest family member!   Most sincerely, Leah

Basil

Vince is Ready for a New Home

Vince is a polydactyl!  He has extra toes on his feet… both front and back.  Vince is a handsome, dark mackerel tabby with the "m" on his forhead.  His very splendid stripes on his legs and body and the white bib and feet make him a very striking feline, indeed!

Vince is a bit more quiet and gentlemanly than the rambuntious kittens and youngsters at the cage-free Haseltine Adoption Center, but he socializes very well with the other cats. He plays and sleeps and eats with them comfortably. 

Take advantage of the OMHS Adopt-a-Thon with its lower cost adoption rates.  You will save money because Vince, and all the other OMHS cats, have been spayed/neutered, are up-to-date on vaccinations and are socialized in the cage-free living environment!

Vince will travel to your home with a supply of food he is accustomed to, a toy, his medical records, and a handmade blanket for his naptime!
