• 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 (AUGUST) Adopt-A-Kennel is from a very sweet young man named Asher Stamm. Asher saved his money, and decided that he wanted to adopt Petra's kennel to help her get adopted. It worked. Petra was adopted that very week. So this month's Adopt-A-Kennel Sponsor is Asher Stamm, because of his very special love of all animals. A very special thanks to all of our sponsors for their continuing support.

  • Congratulations to Mindee Hedrick for being The McCook Humane Society's "Employee of the Month" for August 2022!

We can always use the paper towels, hand sanitizer, clorox wipes, bleach, plain old Special Kitty cat litter, bath towels and cat/dog food and toys that you bring in! Thank you, and to all of you, all of us here at the McCook Humane Society just want you to know that YOU are appreciated more than you can know.

  • At this time the spay/neuter reimbursement fees are still being waived for the felines. While this fund is still low, this will continue until the Linda Hedges/Mary Ellinger Memorial fund is depleted. If you'd like to make a contribution to help this fund continue, please make sure that you let us know that it's for this fund.

  • Did you know... One of the biggest questions that we get asked in reference to training a newly adopted dog is why it's not working? Here's something to think about. Most folks that take on training a dog already know that kindness but firmness, and most importantly CONSISTENCY, is the key. Become the alpha, your dog must see you as the leader is essential. But wait! There's more! When your dog does something good, you smile and pat him. He remembers these signs and links your gestures to your happiness and satisfaction. He will repeatedly try to do the things that please you to enjoy your reaction. In similar fashion, he links your gestures, body movements and vocal tones to your words. If you are not taking interest in dog training and not paying proper attention, he may link wrong signs with wrong words. It can result in a failure of training. That is why you have to take interest in the training and should be paying attention to the dog throughout the training session. Consistency. Always.

  • HAPPY TAILS! The following pets were adopted: Gus, Aphrodite, Samson, Royce, Keeli, Hopper, Brooke, Felicity, Zina and Micah Belle!
