And Then There were 23
The siren call of the Cashiers-Highlands Humane Society’s cats and dogs extends far beyond the Plateau. And people respond.
With a national reach on adoption websites such as Petfinder and Adopt-a-Pet, as well as our own website, Facebook (with more than 24,000 followers) and Instagram, it’s no wonder that responsible pet owners travel from far and wide to meet their new best friend at CHHS.
Adding to that is the national publicity the CHHS Animal Rescue Team has received for our work during puppy mill raids, hoarding and cruelty cases, and natural disaster response. (The CHHS Animal Rescue Team has been featured on CNN, Good Morning America, and other news outlets around
It also doesn’t hurt that our 10-acre campus is one of the most picturesque no-kill shelters in the United States, and that we are located in the most beautiful place on the planet. So it’s a little-known secret that adopters from 22 different states have traveled to CHHS to give our shelter pets a forever home.
Make that 23.
Kathy and her son made the 14-hour drive from Connecticut this past January just to meet our shelter dogs. It was love at first sight for Scotty and Kathy. Scotty is a two-year-old Pit Bull mix we rescued last summer after he was found wandering as a stray in Glenville. We knew we would find Scotty a forever home but we never imagined this sweet dog would someday become a Connecticut Canine! Kathy checked in with us to let us know they all arrived safely back, and Scotty is loving his new family and home.
We are proud and honored to serve as the animal welfare ambassador for the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau, and to add the State of Connecticut to our national map of CHHS shelter pet forever homes.
