Shelter on the Hill, A Humane Society
Home for the Holidays
SOTH is just one of thousands of adoption which participate in the
Blue Buffalo "Home 4 the Holidays" event running from
October 1, 2014 through January 10, 2015. The goal is to provide
homes for more than 1.5 million homeless pets worldwide. The event
is sponsored by Blue Buffalo and the Helen Woodward Animal Center
which started the event in 1999.
Last year SOTH helped almost a dozen animals find new homes but
this year we are already on track to triple that number ! - and
that can happen, with your help.
If you (or someone you know) are planning to adopt a new family
member, please come meet the adoptable pets we have at the SOTH
Animal Care Center in Lebec. We always seem to have a wide range
of pets available: young, adult, and senior, with short coats and
long coats and of both the feline and canine persuasion.
Some people discourage others from adopting animals during the
holidays. SOTH does not advocate that pets be given as impulse
gifts. However we do encourage and promote responsible adoptions.
More families bring pets into their homes during the holidays than
at any other time of the year. We feel that the adoption process
removes much of the "impulse" from the equation. Unlike
animals purchased from a pet store, newspaper ad, or roadside
purchase, which are made available to anyone with the money to
spend, SOTH adopters must go through an application process and do
a "meet and greet" with the pet which may include other
family members, other pets within the home, and an adoption staff
member. All shelter staffers strive to match families with the
ideal pet for them, reducing the chance for a failed adoption and
return to the shelter.
On Saturday, December 13, will be at the Annual Christmas event in
Pine Mountain Club for a meet and greet with some of our pets
currently available for adoption, Come by the Cafe Silva Bella
between 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm. Or you can visit both dogs and cats
at the Animal Care Center all day on Tuesdays and Thursdays and
other days by appointment.
Puppies and adult dogs can be adopted for $135. The adoption fee
for kittens and cats is $65. The Animal Care center is located at
879 Lebec Rd. Call (661)248-5018. You can also view adoptable

Shelter on the Hill: A Humane Society, (SOTH), is a private,
non-profit, donor supported, organization whose purpose is to
operate a haven to rescue, reunite and re-home lost and abandoned
companion animals in the Frazier Mountain area of California.
Dedicated to promoting humane treatment and quality of life,
SOTH accepts all animals in need of care, provides appropriate
medical and behavioral intervention, rehabilitation, socialization,
and adoption efforts to save the lives of as many adoptable animals
and remains committed to the welfare of these animals beyond the
adoption process to the extent of its resources - and offers
community support through a myriad of services including but not
limited to, lost and found, sheltering, adoption, foster care,
behavior and training, humane education, pet assistance for people
in need, and inter-agency networking.
Dog of the Month
Daisy is approximately 2 1/2 years old, spayed female. Daisy is
one of those dogs overstocked with compatibility. She seems to be
a good fit for anyone, with or without other dogs, probably good
with small children. She is so housetrained she never potties
in her kennel. She always waits to go outside either on leash or
in our large play yard. She plays with small and large dogs alike,
is not rowdy or dominant. She has adoring eyes that let you know
she appreciates you. Giving Daisy a forever home would be giving
a present to yourself. She is a caramel brown color and is of
medium height. She is a wiggle worm when praised and very
attentive. Easy to train.
Cat of the Month
Shasta is a five month old neutered domestic shorthair kitten.
He looks straight into your eyes with an unencumbered trust and
interest in you. He is quick to respond to anything that moves
and anyone who gently cuddles him. He is dog friendly, cat
friendly, kid and adult friendly and indoor only. Shasta is
great fun and will make you smile! See
