June 4, 2020 UPDATE in regards to COVID-19

  • We here at the McCook Humane Society have been closely monitoring this situation and the impact it is having in our community. We are operating under a Limited Access Policy. Our priority has always been the safety of our staff, volunteers and guests, while still maintaining our mission in finding permanent homes for our temporarily homeless friends and reuniting the lost with their families.
  • Weather permitting, we are still planning on having our June Nail Day Event (Saturday, June 13th, from 1pm until 3pm). Please watch our Facebook page and here for more updates. This will be a fun outside event. Stay tuned for more details!
  • At this present time we will still be handling adoptions and surrenders on an appointment only basis, one family or person at a time. For adoptions, please fill out the adoption application online on our website. You will be contacted in the order in which the applications are received, and an appointment will be made during our otherwise normal business hours. You will be asked a series of health/COVID-19 related questions to ensure your safety and the safety of our staff.
  • We truly appreciate your considerate patience during this unusual time, and thank you for your continuing support. Please call us with any concerns or questions. By continuing to show kindness, and remaining calm, we will all get through this.
  • Come check out our "Adopt-A-Kennel" program where our local individuals and businesses can show the community their support for our area's homeless animals. This month's (JUNE) Adopt-A-Kennel Sponsorship is by Deanna Schmidt in honor of all animals because they are so near and dear to her heart. A very special thanks to all our sponsors for their continuing support.

  • This week's wishlist: Hand Sanitizer, Paper Towels and Clorox wipes! We can always use the paper towels, bleach, plain old Special Kitty cat litter, bath towels and cat/dog food and toys that you bring in! Thank you to those of you who bring us the items on this wishlist when you can. We may not be able to properly thank all of you as quickly as we'd like to and as big as we'd like to. Some of you are pretty firm about no thanks necessary! To all of you, all of us here at the McCook Humane Society just want you to know that it truly is appreciated more than you can know. YOU are appreciated more than you can know.

  • At this time, spay and neuter fees are still waived on cats and kittens only. Folks, while we are seeing a few more feline adoptions, we're still on feline overload and they're all such wonderful furkids! All cats are $46.75 (after tax), that means: spayed/neutered, all vaccinations including Rabies, Microchipped, etc.

  • Did Ya Know:
    • Now that the summer season is in full swing, walking with your dog requires a few extra precautions to keep them safe and healthy.
    • Practically every pet parent knows the rule about not leaving your dog in a hot vehicle, but not as many know the damage that hot asphalt, pavement or even sand, can wreak on a dog’s paws.
    • The air temperature doesn’t have to be excessively hot to burn a dog’s skin. The air temperature only has to be 77 F for the asphalt to be 125 F, and at 125 degrees, skin destruction can occur in just 60 seconds!
    • Hot pavement can cause painful blisters, welts or severe burns on a dog’s feet and lead to health complications like infections.
    • That’s where this five-second rule comes in. Place the back of your hand on the pavement. If you cannot hold it for five seconds, it’s too hot to walk your dog on the surface. Try walking the dog somewhere else and on a cooler surface like grass.

  • Don't forget to "Like" us on Facebook to keep up to date on all of the upcoming fun events and fundraisers.

  • HAPPY TAILS! The following pets have been adopted: Bailee, Randy Blythe, Bunny and Bushwacker!

  • The Shelter is currently closed to the public due to the current COVID-19 situation, and we are doing essential business only. We are answering phone calls during our otherwise normal business hours of 2:00pm until 5:00pm Monday through Friday and Noon until 4:00pm on Saturdays. We are handling adoptions and surrenders by appointment only and only one family unit per appointment. Please fill out the appointment application online at our website and list the furchild that you are interested in adopting. We will contact you to set the appointment with you. We thank you for your considerate patience during these unusual times.
  • If you need to surrender an animal, please call first during our otherwise normal business hours to make an appointment to bring the animal in.
