All Points/Money raised for this CPHS March Muttness teams will go to help their cause for example our Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Program – SPAY DAYS! This team is the Spay Day Sputters!
Spay Day Sputters This team represents our Spay & Neuter program called Spay Days. This program is offered by the Central Pennsylvania Humane Society (CPHS), and is designed to offer some financial support for loving, responsible pet owners who are not financially able to afford the entire cost of surgery.
GO SPAY DAY SPUTTERS!
Feral Furies This team represents our TNR (Trap, Neuter, and Release) program! TNR was created to help spay and neuter the stray cats and kittens. This is a volunteer run program. The volunteers, when granted permission, will come onto the property where colonies of feral cats reside and trap them. They will come to CPHS to be altered, ear tipped, given a rabies vaccine, and returned to the area where they reside. This helps drastically control the stray cat population. GO FERAL FURIES!
Foster Failures This team represents our foster angels! We have a team of fosters that take in kittens beginning at hours old until 12 weeks of age. The shelter is a high-risk environment for kittens due to their immune system not being developed. Each kitten receives flea medication, deworming, kitten vaccines, until they are altered and microchipped and ready for adoption. A lot of times, the fosters form a special bond with a kitten (or two) and ultimately adopt! GO FOSTER FAILURES!
Medical Longshots This team represents our Trinity’s Fund – Emergency Vet Care Team! CPHS prides itself on being able to medically care for animals who need life saving measures to have a better life. Whether an animal has been hit by a moving vehicle, suffered abuse from a neglectful situation, or starts exhibiting symptoms; we utilize these funds to diagnose and treat each case at CPHS or at a local veterinary practice.
GO MEDICAL LONGSHOTS!
Paw Protector Patrol This team represents our Humane Officer! CPHS employs a full-time humane officer that responds to neglect/cruelty calls from citizens, but also to state, as well, as local police departments. In order to appropriately protect himself and the animals in need of his protection, he has annual upgrades for equipment that are a necessary part in remaining as safe as possible. Our officer logs over 100 plus miles per day on the vehicle responding to calls to keep the animals safe.
GO PAW PROTECTOR PATROL!
Mighty Mutts This team represents our dogs. Each dog at CPHS is vaccinated, assessed for specific behaviors, altered prior to adoption, microchipped, and dewormed/flea treated. We can house 48 dogs comfortably. Each dog gets fed twice a day, medications if needed, walked, outside time, and given specialized prescription food when deemed medically necessary. Each dog is safe with us, with no time limit on their stay, until they find their forever home. GO MIGHTY MUTTS!
Puppy Puddle Growlers This team represents puppies who make their way to CPHS. CPHS doesn’t often get litters of puppies, but when we do, we make sure to keep each puppy as healthy as possible. Just like young kittens, puppies do not have an immune system built up. Therefore, a puppy under 8 weeks of age will be placed in a foster home! Each puppy is provided with flea treatment, deworming, vaccinations, their annual rabies vaccination, altered, and microchipped prior to leaving the shelter for their forever home at an appropriate healthy age.
GO PUPPY PUDDLE GROWLERS!
Kitty Cat Crumbler’s This team represents our entire cat and kitten population at the shelter. Did you know at one time, we had close to 200 cats in our care? Every day the cats/kittens get fed twice a day, litter changed, medications if deemed necessary, prescription food if medically suggested, and socialized! Prior to adoption, each cat and/or kitten is altered, microchipped, flea treated, dewormed, vaccinated, and tested for FeLV/FIV.
