This year’s Wine and Whiskers was the best yet!

We would like to dedicate our blog today as a follow-up for our Wine and Whiskers event back in early November. Thanks to all of the dedication and hard work of our staff members and volunteers as well as the generous donations from those who attended and the local businesses who donated for the auction, we reached our fundraising goal for the shelter!

Events like this keep the shelter open and running and continuing our mission of “putting pets with people.” We want you to know that we couldn’t have done it without you. Your donations and your generosity don’t just help the shelter, but help every single animal that comes into our care needing warmth, hope, and love.

So here is a great big thank you to everyone who helped: donors, businesses, volunteers, staff members. Thank you!


Hey there, animal lovers. We know that the shelter can be a little bit out of the way for a lot of people. But, all November long we’ve got an adoption event going on at the PetSmart in Columbia. These kitty ambassadors will be at PetSmart all month long. As they get adopted new ones will be added. Won’t you bring a new family member home for the Holidays?

If you’re interested in coming out and meeting these kitties, the ones currently calling PetSmart CoMo their home are the lovely Starr pictured above, Binx, Edgar, Gus, Juicy Fruit, Karen, King, Sig, and Sparky.

Just because they aren’t in the shelter right now doesn’t mean they don’t come with the same adoption promises offered in the shelter. These are still CMHS adoptable cats current on vaccinations and everything else. They are 100% ready to come home with you!

Come out to PetSmart and meet these kitties today!
