Don't worry, with all the crazy things happening in the world right now, pets are still being cared for at the Tri-County Humane Society, but that can't happen without the wonderful volunteers and staff, and donations from the community.

To help the pets in an age of staying at home and social distancing, the Tri-County Humane Society has been hosting online silent auctions on Facebook for different baskets, and area businesses have jumped on board to donate.

Help support Tri-County Humane Society pets by bidding in our online silent auction! Here how it works: Post your bid as a comment in the item's post. Bidding closes at 2 p.m. SHARP on Thursday, April 9.

Mello is 3.5 years old and ready for a new home. He is so over the shelter experience and is sad every time he has to go back in his kennel after a walk. Although he is a sweetheart, he does not do well with other pets, so he MUST be a solo guy. He has been in and out of the shelter since mid-February, so we'd REALLY like him to get a home ASAP.

And to any TCHS fosters who don't have other pets, we're open to getting Mello into a foster home to give him a break from the shelter! Contact Foster Care Coordinator Kallie Braun for details.
