Say hello to the ladies man Callen

Hello Winston and readers! My name is Callen and I am a one year old pit bull / lab mix. I consider myself a very happy lucky puppy with lots and lots of charm and tons of personality! I also tend to be a bit of a ladies’ man, but I will greet everyone (men and women) with my cute, cheeky smile! I love my squeaky toys and soft toys.

I can be picky at times, but the staff found that I love the moist foods and the Puperoni sticks. I am dog friendly and tested on cats if necessary. I would do well in a home with someone who can give me a lot of obedience training to help me with some of my manners. I think I’m quite a gentleman, but it sure doesn’t hurt to always learn something new. Thanks Winston!

Winston says:

Ah, a ladies’ man, eh? I’m sure there are a lot of women looking at your beautiful pic right now and thinking, “Well, maybe he is the one for me!” Ladies (AND Gentlemen), please stop by and see this wonderful boy for yourself and see if there is a match.

Care for cats and kittens

Did you know? The shelter will cut the claws of your kittens and cats. It is not necessary to make an appointment, but please call ahead if you can.

The shelter invites the public to stop by and visit our cats and kittens to see if there is a match, but if no one is talking to your heart, we also have cats located at PetSmart in New Hartford. Their opening hours are Monday to Friday from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Holiday gifts

Cat pride
Litter program

We participate in the Cat’s Pride Liter for Good program – we have received 4000 pounds of cat litter thanks to nominations from the community. This is an ongoing promotion. The more nominations, the more garbage we get.

The litter, as you can imagine, is a big expense for us, so it would be a wonderful saving for our shelter.

The public is invited to participate as follows:

1. Go to and join the free Cat’s Pride Club.

2. Click on the “Nominate” button to help us receive waste.

3. Enter the bonus code: 4GOOD and you will double your nomination to the shelter.

4. Buy a green pitcher of Cat’s Pride Fresh and Light – each time you do this another pound of litter is added to the total amount given.
