registration open polar plunge

More pets go missing over the Fourth of July holiday more than any other time of the year.

Here are some tips from the Warren County Humane Society to keep your pets safe.

Not using fireworks around your pets, making sure they’re wearing a collar with ID, having toys available for distraction, and turning on music to drown out the loud noises are just a few ways you can keep your furry friends from being overwhelmed and scared during the holiday.

More information can be found here on the Warren County Humane Society’s website.

jewel

Welcome back to Furever Friday! Each week, we spotlight an adoptable Pet from the Humane Society of Warren County.

Today we are featuring Dustin an approximately 1 year old orange and white cat who given time will love the attention you give him. Dustin would probably do better with a kitten or cat friend or two.

If you would like to give Dustin a forever home please fill out an application at humanesocietywarrencounty.com.  Once you apply and are approved, a staff member will contact you with the next steps.

You can also check out the Humane Society of Warren County’s adoptable pets on petfinder.com.

Furever Friday is proudly sponsored by Shear Elegance Pet Boutique. Shear Elegance Pet Boutique has been giving pets the love, care and respect they deserve since 2011.

Visit them today off John Marshall Highway and on Facebook.

The Humane Society of Warren County offers their Pick of the Litter Thrift Store at 450 S. Commerce Ave. Front Royal.

The store is a great way to support the Humane Society of Warren County by way of both purchase and donations.

Furever Friday – Meet Kevin

Kevin loves lounging on the bed in the living room here at the shelter but he’d much rather be cuddling with you on your bed in his furever home. Kevin has been at the shelter for 390 days and is still just as happy, goofy, playful and loving as the first day he got here. He doesn’t know why he’s here but he has made the best of it. We love him for that. We know you would too. He is about 9 years old and a lab mix. Apply today on our website or give us a call at 540-635-4734 for more information.

Polar Plunge for the Humane Society of Warren County

Our conversation with Meghan Bowers, Director of Humane Society of Warren County gave us details for their upcoming Polar Plunge happening on January 15, 2021 at 11am at the Front Royal 4H Center’s Lake Culpeper. Sponsorships & Plungers are still welcome.

Meghan also gave us an update on the Spay/Neuter Clinic they opened earlier in 2021. She explained their policies for getting “community cats” spayed/neutered and talked about the incredible staff she has at the clinic.

We also talked about the long-timers at the shelter, their pigeon & guinea pigs, the adoption process, and why surrendering is ALWAYS a better option than simply turning your animals loose.
