As most of you know York Adopt a Pet takes advantage of the Hearts United Organization that has a very low spay/neuter program. You can visit their website at hua.org. Their moto is dedicated to the relief of suffering animals. They have a few cats but deal mostly with dogs and are such advocates of shutting down puppy mills. They have been so generous and helpful in the last 15 years that we have been taking cats to their location between Nebraska City and Auburn.

Meet Charlie, he’s a big guy; a Chocolate Lab and German Shorthair mix. A blend the pup can thank for the gray chin whiskers which make him appear much older than his youthful 3 years.
In my last article I wrote about a cat that was found with a chunky soup can stuck on her head and was rescued by a woman who has in the past rescued several other desperate cats and kittens in need. I dubbed her the angel of mercy. I am happy to say that this sweet little cat, who was destined to a long and painful death prior to being rescued, was adopted by another angel of mercy when this past week Richard came to Adopt a Pet and adopted little Angie.
Almost 40 years ago, two sisters began a project in a small shed on the road to what was then known as the York City Dump.
Two days after this past Christmas I received a call that a calico cat had been found on north Highway 8l. She was found on a property with a Campbell’s chunky soup can stuck on her head. Once again an angel of mercy was there to rescue her. She was brought to the York Animal Clinic where she was checked out and brought up to date on her shots. She was later spayed and is now waiting for her forever home.
They are only 8 years of age, but they’re seniors already. That’s because 8-plus is the age dogs at York Adopt-a-Pet are considered senior citizens.
Those are the events that alter the course of your life: marriage, births, job changes, moving locations either across town or across the country. Sometimes we get so wrapped up in our usual schedule of daily responsibilities and familiar routines that when something changes within our personal universe, we can be completely thrown off kilter.
The years continue to roll on, the hill is steeper and the months and years are sliding down faster each year. We are already half through the month of January and as of today at 5 we have received 22 cats and kittens in the month of January. Thankfully we have adopted 14 cats and kittens with three or four more that will be potentially adopted this week.
We are proud to be part of Bissell Partners for Pets
