• 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 (SEPTEMBER) Adopt-A-Kennel is by Prairie Plains CASA... working for abused and neglected children, and your furkids too! A very special thanks to all of our sponsors for their continuing support.

  • This week's WishList! 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 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.

  • Thank you to everyone who came out this past Saturday, September 11th to our “Nail Day”! Because of you it was another wonderful day and big success. Next month's event will once again be special because it's "Dog Days"! This will be another outdoor event, our annual "Dog Day" event which we will offer Nail Trims, a Microchip Clinic, and have various vendors on hand. Stay tuned for this fun event coming up Saturday, October 9th! If you're a vendor that would like to participate, or volunteer that would like to help out, please give us a call.

  • Week #4 of the Clear the Shelters Event! We thank you for your support, and hope you continue to support your shelter during the final week of this event! Matching funds will be available to DOUBLE your donation's impact. Show your support today! clearthesheltersfund.org

  • Spay/Neuter Reimbursement Fees Waived for dogs also! This has been made possible due to a very generous donation by Grant Strunk! During the "Clear the Shelters" Event (which ends on Sept. 19th), the spay/neuter reimbursement fees are being waived for our dogs! Thank you Grant for your generosity and helping us in our mission to "Clear the Shelter"! The spay/neuter reimbursement fees are still being waived for the felines as well (until the Linda Hedges Memorial fund is depleted).

  • Last week folks! The McCook CatPack is finishing up strong with the 9th edition of "The Cats and Dogs of McCook Calendar" Photo Contest!

  • Did you know... How often you should bathe your pet is another one of the most often asked questions we get at the shelter during the adoption process. How often should you bathe your pet? That all depends on your pet. Factors include: his hair coat, hair length, how often he gets dirty, where he lives (if he is indoor or outdoors most of the time), shedding cycle, and any underlying skin problem. Some dogs need baths only a couple times a year while others need weekly grooming. It is beneficial to brush your dog about twice a week. Bathing your dog every month or two isn’t unreasonable, but some dogs will need more frequent cleanings. A good rule of thumb is to bathe your pet only when his coat gets dirty or begins to smell “doggy.”

  • HAPPY TAILS! The following pets have been adopted: Lottie, Stan, Ollie, Whispurr, Rose & Cat Benatar!
