This mother-son relationship is not complicated: they're besties! And besties should stick together, so Tri-County Humane Society is offering a BOGO for Besties deal on top of the Name Your Price deal for Mama and Harvey, today's Pets of the Week!

Mama is 5 years old and Harvey is one year old, so both qualify for the TCHS Name Your Price deal! Both are in great health, but neither has experience with dogs or children. Slow introductions to new family members is always recommended. Harvey helps Mama out of her shell, and they love to nap together and play together, so we'd love to keep them together. A wonderful BOGO deal for you!

Book Buddies Reading Program

Pets love to be read to. If you have a kiddo (age 5-15 years preferred) in your household who would LOVE to read to a shelter resident, then the Book Buddies program is for you (them)! Pets don't care about mispronounced words, and it's beneficial for both the kiddo (who gets practice reading aloud) and the resident, as shelter life can be stressful.

For Pets' Sake!

Thursdays through Saturdays from 2pm to 5pm, For Pets' Sake Thrift is open next to the animal shelter! Get gently used collars, pet beds, leashes, apparel, and accessories, with all profits staying to take care of the residents!


Tri-County Humane Society wants you and your new family member to succeed, so they've teamed up with GoodPup to provide a customizable, affordable, and positive dog training program that you both can work on from home!
