Dog of the Week - Bismark
Cat of the Week - Hermes
This handsome kitty cat is Hermes. He is a neutered 3 year old male who tested negative for FIV/FeLV.  Hermes is a calm well mannered cat with a lot of love to give. We think he would do best in a home with no other cats because he tends to get a tad bossy. If you are looking for a cat to snuggle with and shower you with love than stop by and check out Hermes! 
Dad's concern for pets goes beyond the development of healthy foods. We have created "Have a Heart" program to help provide homeless animals with food, shelter, and loving care. You can be a part of the program too. Just save proof-of-purchase UPC codes from ANY Dad's pet food and send it to the Spca In Cattaraugus County. We will redeem them for money from Dad's which can be used to care for animals in need.
Garfield can't handle his excitement for Dad's Have a Heart Program!

This is Whisker Wonderland and on the opposite side is Hotel Catifornia. Hotel Catifornia is for shy/semi feral cats.

They are part of the new Margaret Mahar Cat Room. These new spaces will give many SPCA cats the opportunity to leave their cages behind and enjoy a large area to roam and play.

However before a cat can frolic in these new cage-free areas he or she must be spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and test negative for FIV/Felv. To accomplish this we are targeting to spay/neuter 20 SPCA cats during March, 2014 in order to move them from cages into the new cage free areas. However at a cost of $77  each we need sponsors to donate and make it a reality for an SPCA kitty to leave his/her cage behind. Please consider sponsoring an SPCA cat to be spayed/neutered!

Below are some of the cats who really would love to wander freely in Whisker Wonderland, because we hate to have all that space and no cats in it.

Meet Bismark! A Catt County Spca pup in need of a fur-ever home. Bismark is an adult male and the staff thinks that he might be a rott/gordan setter mix...a real mystery mutt! He loves long walks! It gives him time to stop and smell the roses or whatever he can find to sniff and he love feeling the grass between his toes....he told me it feels like what sand feels like for us humans....just heaven. Bismark is a little set in his ways so he needs an owner with experience and that will take time training him. Bismark would also be best suited in a home with no small children. So if you are interested in meeting Bismark please stop on down to the Spca and visit him today. Thanks for taking the time to read my tale and as always sharing is caring!!!
