 Hi! My Name is Mania!

I am a bit of a wild child and love to do things my way. I give the best head-butts and absolutely love affection. With my lovable personality, I bond quickly with people. Because I want all the attention to myself, I may not mind being the only cat (I've been told I have a "queen Bee" mentality when it comes to other felines!) Sometimes I can get a little over-excited when I play, so I need a person to understand when I've had enough. This outgoing girl is ready for her forever home!

Give your dog a chance to do what he does best - be a dog. The Monadnock Humane Society  has developed a wonderful daycare program for dogs. Open from 7am-6pm (full and half-day options available), the program allows your dogs to relax, let their fur down, and hang out with their buddies and play in a safe, fun environment - all for a reasonable price. After all, who knows dogs better than the Humane Society!

Benefits include:

  • Provides dogs with a safe,fun, and stimulating social environment while owners are at work or school. If you have contractors at your home, give your dog a break
  • Good manners with other dogs and people are taught and reinforced from the moment the dog enters daycare to pick-up time
  • Prevents boredom and related behavioral problems
  • Relieves anxiety of being home alone
  • A safe environment and positive experience for all dogs
  • Trained staff actively supervises all dog interaction at all times

DAYCARE IS GREAT FOR... Friendly dogs who really like being with other dogs. Puppies! Pups need lots of positive socialization and interaction with others to become well mannered adults. They even help with house training!

IF YOU had a choice what would you rather do? Sit at home by yourself for 10 hours a day or go to a "resort" where you can play, socialize and have fun? What do you think your dog would want? Call the Monadnock Humane Society 603-352-9011 x105 or email and give your dog a treat!


The holidays are approaching; travel plans have been made, but who will take care of your dog or cat? The Monadnock Humane Society  has complete boarding facilities for your pet.

For some pet parents, a trip's no fun if the four-legged members of the family can't come. But traveling can be highly stressful, both for you and your animal companions. With thoughtful preparation, you can ensure a safe and comfortable trip for everyone.

Planning a road trip? Traveling with a pet involves more than just loading the animal in the back seat and motoring off-especially if you will be driving long distances or plan to be away for a long time. The ASPCA offers the following tips to help you prepare for a safe and smooth car trip:

1. Keep your pets safe and secure in a well-ventilated crate or carrier. There are a variety of wire mesh, hard plastic and soft-sided carriers available. Whatever you choose, make sure it's large enough for your pet to stand, sit, lie down and turn around in. And P.S., it's smart to get your pet used to the carrier in the comfort of your home before your trip.

2. Get your pet geared up for a long trip by taking him on a series of short drives first, gradually lengthening time spent in the car. And please be sure to always secure the crate so it won't slide or shift in the event of a quick stop.

3. Your pet's travel-feeding schedule should start with a light meal three to four hours prior to departure. Don't feed your furry friend in a moving vehicle-even if it is a long drive.

4. Never leave your animal alone in a parked vehicle. On a hot day, even with the windows open, a parked automobile can become a furnace in no time, and heatstroke can develop. In cold weather, a car can act as a refrigerator, holding in the cold and causing the animal to freeze to death.

5. What in your pet's traveling kit? In addition to travel papers, food, bowl, leash, a waste scoop, plastic bags, grooming supplies, medication and a pet first-aid kit, pack a favorite toy or pillow to give your pet a sense of familiarity.

6. Make sure your pet has a microchip for identification and wears a collar with a tag imprinted with your home address, as well as a temporary travel tag with your cell phone, destination phone number and any other relevant contact information. Canines should wear flat (never choke!) collars, please.

7. Don't allow your pet to ride with his head outside the window. This can subject him to inner ear damage and lung infections, and he could be injured by flying objects. And please keep him in the back seat in his crate or with a harness attached to a seat buckle.

8. Traveling across state lines? Bring along your pet's rabies vaccination record, as some states requires this proof at certain interstate crossings. While this generally isn't a problem, it's always smart to be on the safe side.

9. When it comes to H2O, we say BYO. Opt for bottled water or tap water stored in plastic jugs. Drinking water from an area he's not used to could result in tummy upset for your pet.

10. If you travel frequently with your  pet, you may want to invest in rubberized floor liners and waterproof seat covers,  available at auto product retailers.
