A hold was put on Hobo and Sugar together. The application is at the Shelter and is being processed. Remember, Lucy goes home this Wednesday. The wheels are in motion for a couple of new guys to come to PetSmart by the end of the week.
Just a reminder... When completing paperwork for holds and adoptions please consult the steps listed on the top of the adoption table. I know it is a tad tedious but the Shelter has rules to follow. Hold receipts are copies of the hold agreement itself. Staple the cash to one copy and leave it in the cabinet. Complete a SECOND hold agreement and give it to the person for a receipt. The shorter cash receipts (in triplicate) are ONLY completed when an adoption is finalized and the balance of the fee is being paid. Make sure the applicants are aware that on average the adoption process takes three-five days. Explain that rental agreements or home ownership is verified and vet references are checked. After that the Shelter Director does a review of the application and makes the final determination on the approval. Applicants with animals who are not current on vaccinations will not be automatically denied however they will not be approved until the animals are brought to a vet and the vaccinations administered. If you have any questions you can always call the Shelter seven days a week during the day. Do not hesitate to call me as well.
I am going away (yes, again!) from December 28 until January 5. I will be back to work the adoption table on Sunday, January 6. Should you need coverage for your shift in the morning please contact Anne. Should you need coverage for your shift in the evening please contact Jenny. I will send you their e-mail addresses and phone numbers in a separate e-mail. Should you get REALLY stuck and can not contact either one of them call the store and ask for the manager.
I owe Sugar an apology! I mistakenly told you that she is a he. Sugar is a female! Sorry, Sugar!
Can't ya just picture our sweet Sashimi sitting quietly on a window perch! Thank you, Santa!
Have a wonderful Christmas!!

Now, keep your fingers crossed...Sashimi got a hold! The application is at the Shelter being processed. Barb A met the applicant last night and said the home seems perfect for her. The gentleman applying wants a mellow cat and already has a window perch in his house. He had an older cat that he recently lost to cancer. He lives alone in a quiet house and wants a quiet, low maintenance cat. He spent some time with Sashimi and she stayed with him and purred and happily accepted treats from him. She is so sweet and not a bit of trouble! I am hoping to get the process expedited so she can go home tomorrow night. If any cat deserves to be home by Christmas it is Sashimi. I will keep you posted!
Seventy-two people came to the Shelter staff & volunteer dinner at the Golden Inn on Monday night. Thank you to all who attended and helped to make it a success! While there a group photo was taken of those who participated in the West Cape May Christmas parade this year on a float with their dogs. The purpose of the float is to bring attention to the Shelter and to homeless animals. The group, organized by Barb A, marched their own dogs in the parade dressing in a "beachy" theme. This year again they won an award - 1st place in the comic division. In the picture from left to right ( rear) Larissa S and her husband Matt, Joanne R, Joan S, Barb A & husband Glen...from left to right (front) Jess F and Alex C. You can see the big trophy being held by Joanne. The trophy will be placed on display in the lobby at the Shelter. You, too, can be a part of this prestigous group next year! Mark your calendar now and bring your dog next year!!
Three new cats were brought to PetSmart on Sunday. Sugar is a sweet male tiger stripe, Scout is a friendly black male and Hazel is a big old calico. It is a nice group!
Just a reminder...30% of the cats adopted from the Shelter in 2007 were adopted through the program at PetSmart. Your compassion and commitment to this program truly makes a difference to the feline population at the Shelter! Thank you for another successful year! It is truly a pleasure and an honor to work with all of you! Enjoy the holidays!
Here is Sugar, Hazel and Scout...

Caramel and Taffy went home last night. They are going to a house that presently has no pets. Their new family had a dog and a cat for years and both passed way this past year. They have been waiting for the right time to adopt again and saw these two in the big cage at PetSmart. I am sure they will have a great life! How lucky they are to get to stay together!
I am in the process of arranging for new guys to come down to PetSmart to replace the recent adoptees. I will let you know when they arrive.
A District Manager came to the store last week and reviewed our operation at the adoption center. Although the DM approved of our use of the PetFinder bios they also would like us to utilize their cage cards. So, from now on we will be displaying a combination of the PetFinder pictures and bios and the PetSmart cage cards.
January schedule looks great!! Only the following two mornings are still open: Saturday, 1/12 and Saturday, 1/26. Only one afternoon/evening/adoption table shift is still open: Sunday, 1/26. You know the drill!
Last call for the dinner at the Golden Inn on Monday night, December 17!! If you have not responded please let me know immediately if you would like to attend. I will be giving the Golden Inn my final head count Friday, December 14 in the early afternoon.
Thursday, December 06, 2007
Emma left on Wednesday, November 28. Leila, Mae and Bagheera all left on Saturday, December 1. Leila and Mae went home together. How great is that!! Bagheera was adopted by an older gentleman who had just lost his 25 year old cat. Bagheera will be splitting his time here and in Florida - yes, he will be a snowbird!
Lucy has a hold and the application has been approved. The adopting couple can not pick her up until December 26. Per the Shelter, should someone else show interest in adopting Lucy you can take the application, however explain that she has a pending application and if the couple do not come through she may be adopted.
It looks like the two holds on Finn and the one on Shortie are not going to go anywhere. The Shelter has continued to attempt to contact the applicant of Finn's first hold however no one answers the phone and there in no answering machine. As far as the second hold on Finn, the applicant does not want to complete the paperwork required by the Shelter. The applicant for Shortie has not contacted the Shelter since November 12 which is telling in itself. Don't worry - good homes will find them!
Five new cats came to PetSmart today. They are a great bunch and all their names are easy to say!! Caramel and Taffy are two orange and white young brothers who moved into the big cage. They are sweet, friendly and playful! It is going to be difficult for someone to separate them! Hobo is a young black male kitty who is vocal and friendly! I put him on the first row with Finn and Sashimi. I did not open his cage however should you see that he mixes well with the other two feel free to open the cage. Richard is a young orange male and is very playful and friendly. He is sharing cages with Athena, a young black female. Yes, all the guys this time around are youngsters!
I know I have addressed this before but just a reminder...please do not put beds, blankets or towels in the cages. I know that you are trying to provide comfort on the cats' journey to their forever homes and I certainly understand why you want to do so. However, under these circumstances keeping beds, blankets and towels clean presents too many challenges. The cloth gets dirty quickly and absorbs odors. The washer and dryer at the Shelter operates constantly as the towels and blankets are washed daily. The number one turn off to people entering an animal shelter is smell. Clean, uncluttered cages are more "customer friendly." Please keep in mind that at PetSmart we are essentially "marketing" our cats and the Cape May County Animal Shelter. I removed the beds and blanket that were in the cages. I will wash them and put them in the cabinet when I work the adoption table this weekend.
Please take a look ahead to the January schedule. You will see that Monday and Thursdays mornings need coverage. Also, if you did not get the e-mail about this Saturday (December 8), Judy M needs coverage. Please let me know if you are available.
Remember the Christmas Dinner/Meeting is Monday, December 17 at the Golden Inn in Avalon. If you have not RSVPed please do so! I really hope to see all of you there!
Meet Athena, Taffy, Caramel, Hobo and Richard

Emma is scheduled to be picked up tomorrow night.
Hopefully you have all received the invitation to the annual volunteer and staff dinner. Again it is being held at the Golden Inn. It was a very nice event last year so if you missed it please make sure to attend this year. It is a great opportunity to spend time with people of like minds.
The December calendar looks great!! The following morning shifts are still open: Saturday (12/15), Thursday (12/20), Saturday (12/29) and Monday (12/31). The following adoption table slot OR evening shift is still open: Saturday (12/29). Please let me know if you are available for any of these shifts.
Barb A is again entering a float in the West Cape May Christmas Parade this Saturday, December 1. Last year Barb's float was a prize winner! Everyone is welcome to bring their dog and walk in the parade along with Barb. I will send you her phone number and e-mail in a separate e-mail. If you are interested in joining the parade please call her. The float is entered to raise awareness for animals sheltered throughout Cape May County. If you need a dog to walk in the parade she has a few extras!!
I will be away for a few days this week (Wednesday, November 28 until early afternoon Sunday, December 2). Should you have reason to need coverage for your shift in the morning please contact my mom, Anne, and should you need coverage for your afternoon/evening shift please contact Jenny. I will send you their phone numbers and e-mail along with Barb's.

Tailor is scheduled to leave the Shelter today. He did his time and is now a free feline! Tinker got a hold last Saturday and his application was approved today. He is scheduled to be picked up at PetSmart tonight. Poor Mae! We did get a hold on her during the Adoptathon however the applicant never followed through with the Shelter. Hopefully Mae's forever home is just around the corner.
I do have someone available to do the evening cleaning on Sunday, November 11, however not the adoption table. If someone is available to do the adoption table that day let me know.
Arrangements are being made to get additional cats down to PetSmart on Friday or Saturday.
Please tell your friends and family and mark your calendars...Santa Claus is coming to PetSmart on weekends in December for photos with pets! This year PetSmart has upgraded to digital photographs. Remember, PetSmart donates half of the proceeds made through the photos to the animal welfare organization that provides volunteers and staffs the event. This year the Animal Welfare Society will be represented on December 1 & 2, Cape May County Animal Shelter Alliance will be represented on December 8 & 9 and Animal Outreach will be represented on December 15 & 16. Last year this was a very successful fundraising event for all involved organizations. Please spread the word and let's help make it successful again this year.

The applications for both Chewey and Vanilla have been approved and arrangements are being made for them to be picked up from the Shelter. In addition to Chewey two other dogs came down from the Shelter for a visit - Troy and Sausage. Shelter staff were also on hand for the event - thank you, Jess and Heidi!
Everyone is working so hard to make little Shorty feel secure during his time with us and it is paying off. Thank you so much for your compassion!
There is some openings in the November schedule. Please let me know what you can do. Someone is needed for the following morning cleanings: Sunday 11/18, Monday 11/26, Thursday 11/29. Someone is needed for the following evening cleanings: Thursday 11/8, Monday 11/26. Someone is needed for the adoption table OR evening cleaning: Sunday 11/4 and Sunday 11/11.

After Pinky & Binky left we had quite an empty house. Not any more! We presently have no vacancy! We are at maximum capacity - ten cats. Five new guys arrived Friday afternoon. At this point the door is open between three cages on each floor. As long as everyone is getting along this is not a problem - it lets the cats have more room to move around as well gives them company.
The new guys are Pertelot, Smudge, Leila, Tailor and Tinker. Pertelot is very Samantha-like. She is a big husky female who is all black and fluffy. She got a hold on Saturday! She has a sweet, gentle nature. Smudge is another black female. She is sweet, too, and gets along great with everyone. Leila is a pretty torti who seems to have really hit it off with Mae. She is friendly and loves to sprawl out on the floor when you let her out. Tailor and Tinker are litter mates that are about three or four months old. They are both males and are in the big cage and are SOOOO cute! Both are really friendly and not the least bit skittish. I bet we have no problem getting them into a home together. Tinker is the little tiger striped guy and Tailor is the one with the white on his chest and underbelly. Wait til you meet this crew! Unfortunately I can not upload photos right now with Blogger so can't show you the new guys! If you go to http://www.petfinder.com/ you can look these guys up. I will try again later to add the pictures.
Shorty was very sad today and scared. He jumps when you touch him. He is so cute with his big white whiskers and stubby tail! I feel sorry for him. Take some time with him, please.
Remember...next Saturday is the Make A Difference Day Adoptathon. Shelters are participating in various locations throughout Atlantic and Cape May County. If you know anyone interested in adopting a dog or cat tell them to stop in and see us at PetSmart. We also will have a list of participating shelters available. Barb A is handling this event and could always use more help!
Madelyn took some photos of dogs at the Cape May County Shelter from PetFinder and had then blown up. They are now posted at PetSmart above the cat cages. These dogs are representative of typical dogs in Shelters everywhere and will remain on the wall. They are beautiful photographs. Using a computer program Madelyn was able to remove the chains that can be seen in the original photographs.
November is almost here...please consult the calendar and let me know if you can do any of the open shifts.
Monday, October 15, 2007
A hold was put on Pinky and Binky on Friday evening. Yes, the hold is for the two of them! The application is at the Shelter and I am pretty certain it will be approved. Can you imagine these two racing through the house?! They are going to be so happy to be free of that cage! One of our volunteers will be sad to see Pinky go but will be so happy to know that not only does she have a forever home but she gets to share it with her sister - right, Lauren!
Three new arrivals came today...Shorty, Emma and Tori. Shorty is a black and white male and so named because he has a short tail. Normally he is friendly and affectionate. However, he was really scared after his trip from the Shelter so barely moved when put into the cage. Please keep this in mind until you can see he has settled in. He should be fine and should only need a day or two.
Emma is a female who is black and white with alot of white on her chest. She settled right in and kept wanting to come right out and explore. Tori is a small calico who also settled right in and is very affectionate. Tracey tried to put Tori and Emma in two shared cages but after seeing some spatting decided to wait and let them settle in first. We'll see how that goes.
Reminders: Saturday, October 27, 11a-5p, Adoptathon PetSmart Let me know if you can help Barb A at any time during that day. (Christina and Paige, I have you on the list! Anyone else if I forgot you please e-mail me again.) Sunday, October 28, Adoption Table or Evening Cleaning still needs to be covered.
I added a link temporarily to the right directly under the volunteer calendar. It is a story that appeared in Sunday's NY times and is close to all our hearts. Take a minute and read it.
Meet the new guys: Emma, Shorty & Tori

Applications are pending for Samantha, Tag, Gossamer and a new arrival, Sara Lee. The woman adopting Samantha met her last weekend and loved her. At that time Samantha had a pending hold but it appeared as if it might fall through. The hold was pulled on Saturday and this woman came back to see if Samantha was still at the store. An application was completed and all the necessary information was promptly faxed to the Shelter. It all looks good!
On Thursday night while cleaning Jen introduced Tag to a family who have small children. The family was particularly concerned with how Tag would handle their little girl. He was wonderful and they loved him! On Saturday they dropped off a completed application and visited with Tag. That little girl can not wait to get him home!
Gossamer was introduced to a family and both of their cats last weekend. He did well with everyone and an application was completed and brought to the Shelter. The application looks like it is going to be approved, also. He has a clean bill of health and was brought back to PetSmart today.
You guys have not even met Sara Lee and she has a hold! She is a sweety! She is mostly white with some orange and has a sweet and friendly disposition. A family came in to PetSmart today and brought their cat to meet Sara Lee. Tracey said Sara Lee proceeded to immediately groom and kiss her new sibling! Well, that was all it took! A completed application is now at the Shelter for Sara Lee. I am hoping she gets to go home on Wednesday so for some of you this may be your only chance to see her...
Binky came back and joined Pinky on Tuesday. Binky also was given a clean bill of health. Apparently she will always have that wheezy, congested sounding breathing. I put the two girls together in the big cage and they are loving it! They rip race around and put on quite a show! They so need to go home together!
I put shy little Mae in a double cage with Sashimi. This way it will be easier for us to actually reach in and handle Mae. She is still a bit scared and so is Sashimi. Sashimi did do a little better on Saturday and was jumping in and out of the cage. I think it is very important for us to work with these two and give them extra TLC. I know we can help these two and can get them adopted!
The Adoptathon is on for Saturday, October 27, from 11a-5p. I am working on having additional cats and kittens brought to the store for the day and hopefully Shelter staff will be on hand with some dogs! If you can help at all on that day let me know.
What is a blog update without a reference to the schedule??? October is just about complete. Coverage is still needed for Saturday morning, the 20th, and for Sunday evening, the 28th. Sunday afternoon is usually when the adoption table is open. If you can open the table that would be great! If you can only clean that is fine, also. Keep in mind that the store closes at 6p on Sundays.
Our regular Monday morning cleaner, Katherine, is once again headed for warmer climates for a few months. Coverage will now be needed for Monday mornings starting the first week in November through March when Katherine will return. Please let me know if there are any weeks you can cover.
If all goes as planned you will be meeting a whole new crew by the end of the week!!
Monday, October 01, 2007
I am so happy to report that Mollie went home on Saturday. Her new parents are both so nice and I know Mollie will have an absolutely wonderful, pampered life! She will be living with two other cats and of course will be kept strictly inside.
Right now we have two holds pending... The hold on Alice looks really good. All the paperwork is complete. Tracey took a hold on big old Samantha last Sunday. However, so far the necessary paperwork has not been brought or faxed to the Shelter. We are still standing by on that one.
I checked on Binky. She still is having a little upper respiratory problem. You can hear the congestion when she breathes.
Since Tag, Gossamer and Samantha are such big cats and since both Tag and Samantha are not exactly tolerant of others I am going to wait to bring new cats to the store. These big guys can not do with one cage AND a large litter box.
If you have not seen it already I rearranged our supplies. I cleaned out all the high shelves. The only items that should go there are litter pans, brown paper and paper towels. It is too difficult for many of the volunteers to access these high shelves. Tons of items had been pushed to the back and the shelves were very cluttered. The rest of the supplies (toys, brushes, medical stuff, liquid cleaners, etc) were all moved to the lower cabinets. The cabinets have all been labelled to make things easier. PLEASE return things to the proper cabinet!! Also, just a reminder...do not put any large litter pans or bowls away that have not been cleaned first. The sink in the store room does have hot water - it just takes a few minutes for it to get hot.
Please look at the October schedule. As you can see with the exception of Friday, October 5, there are several Friday evening cleanings yet to be filled. In addition there is a couple of Saturday mornings, one Monday morning and a Sunday. Please let me know if you can do any of these days.
Monday, September 17, 2007
There was alot of activity over the weekend but unfortunately no holds were taken. A young girl was interested in Mollie and I was so happy to show her. Mollie behaved very well and I explained how she was one of our shy hard cases. The girl seemed really interested and seemed to understand poor Mollie. She left and said she would think about it. A very nice couple met Cayenne and absolutely loved him (who wouldn't!) and they also said they would be back. Maybe both will be back Wednesday night!
Samantha was showing signs of an ear issue. The Shelter vet tech went to PetSmart today and found she has ear mites. Her ears were cleaned and she was treated for the mites. She should be just fine and should get relief immediately. Let me know if she does not appear to feel better.
Poor Sashimi is such a shy scaredy cat! It is difficult to even drag her from the cage! She is breaking my heart! I hope someone sees fit to give her a chance.
Saturday, October 27 is National Make A Difference Day. That day we will be participating in an adoptathon along with many other Shelters throughout Cape May and Atlantic County. Preliminary plans are to have our animals along with animals from Animal Outreach and Animal Welfare Society at PetSmart that day. In addition the Cape May County Animal Shelter Alliance will be on hand to distribute information about low cost spay/neuter programs available to county residents. Barb A is going to be my "go-to-girl" for the event and will be needing help. Please let me know if you can help and I will pass your contact information on to Barb.
Two boys joined Cayenne and the girls at PetSmart on Sunday. Tag is a big friendly buff colored guy and Gossamer is a dark striped tabby cat. Both are very friendly and look forward to meeting you all!! Here they are:

Little Binky was wheezing and appeared to be suffering from an upper respiratory problem. She went back to the Shelter Thursday morning. I saw her yesterday and she is doing well. She will be back with Pinky in a week or so.
Good news!! Blinky is going home Wednesday night! A hold was put on her on Saturday and the application was approved today! Yippee!! She is going to an apartment with a young man and his snake - no cats or dogs or children, though! She really took to him when they met and he really likes her. He did not waste any time and got the necessary paperwork to the Shelter on Sunday.
Unfortunately Loki was brought back to the Shelter. Apparently he was urinating throughout the house. He was taken to a vet who diagnosed a urinary tract infection. Poor Loki! He seems to be doing just fine now after a round of medication. You will see him back at PetSmart in a few weeks.
Three new cats arrived at the store on Saturday. Alice is a friendly little torti and is very cute! Mae is nice but shy. She has a funny looking left eye but she is fine. She will need a little extra coddling for a while until she settles in. Cayenne is big friendly orange and white tomcat. You will love him!
There is only two days on this month's schedule that need to be filled. One is the morning cleaning on Thursday, September 20. The other is the manning of the adoption table or the evening cleaning on Saturday, September 22. Let me know if you are available.
I am trying to get permission from the Shelter director for us to participate in an Adoptathon on Saturday, October 27 for Make A Difference Day. It is a coordinated effort among all the shelters and animal welfare organizations in Atlantic and Cape May County. Stay tuned for details on that!!
Here is the new guys...
Monday, August 27, 2007
Shelter staff spoke with Whitney's new home last week and were told that she has REALLY settled in. She and their other cat have become fast friends!! Ya just never know!!
Here is a picture of Amanda supplied by Heidi. As you can see she is doing well!!
Sassafras, a big, friendly adult male, arrived at PetSmart on Sunday along with two sisters, Pinky and Binky. Pinky and Binky are torti littermates and are adorable!!
The September calendar is just about finished. Coverage is needed for Sunday, September 2 for the evening cleaning - if you can do the adoption table it is even better but not necessary. The only other day that needs coverage is Thursday, September 20 in the morning. Please let me know if you are available.
Here is Sassafras, Binky and Pinky:

I am bringing some new guys to PetSmart on Thursday. My plan is to put Othello and Ginseng in the big cage together. They have been getting along really well and look good together. I will move Redkin to a smaller cage.
Anyone know where the key is?? The managers at PetSmart are now giving us a back up key. The main key on the lanyard has disappeared!
The September schedule is shaping up well. When you have time please take a look at it and let me know what you can do.

Monday, July 23, 2007
Three new guys arrived on Sunday. They are youngsters - five months old. They are litter mates. The three will have run of the top four cages so please leave the doors open between them. There is Biolage, a female tabby, and Redkin, a male tabby. These two look very similar but you can tell them apart by their size - Redkin is a little bigger. The third is Suave, a gray male. When he first arrived he was a tad scared and sat on top of a shelf while his mates ran willy nilly. Let's hope he settles in soon! There is no pictures available as kittens are not put on PetFinder until they get a little older.
Amanda and Anna were both brought back to the Shelter and will be seeing the vet. Amanda has a sore spot above her eye. Since she was living with Anna both cats will be checked out. The Shelter staff are going to take precautionary measures and scrub out the big cage. Until that happens please do not allow the other cats to run free. For now clean the cages around the cats and make sure to use the hand sanitizer. I will let you know as soon as the Shelter advises me staff has cleaned the cage. Hopefully Anna will check out fine and be brought back very soon. I will keep you all posted.
Wednesday, July 18, 2007
As far as pending holds... The people who had put a second hold on Greco are now awaiting approval for Tucker and the hold on Anna has been pulled.
Anna and Amanda had been roomates at the Shelter for a long time. Now they are back together in the big cage. They really love each other and often curl up together. Please push for them to be adopted together! Remember...right now the adoption fee is waived on the second cat if you adopt two.
We need to get Whitney a home!! She will be going back to the Shelter very shortly. She is being placed into the Open Your Heart and Home program which reduces her adoption fee to $10. We have never brought any cat back to the Shelter since PetSmart opened for no reason other than they were not adopted. I know she can be tempermental and quite mouthy but there must be a home out there where she can reign as the queen of the house!
Arrangements are being made for new comers to arrive at PetSmart sometime on Thursday.
I still have no takers for the adoption table on Saturday, July 28. Please, someone give a try!! If I have no takers by next Wednesday I will send out a plea to have someone merely feed and clean that evening.
I know we are out of brown paper for the cages. The managers have been told about this and apparently are working on it.
Just a reminder for Jen & Lauren, Barb A and Jenny G - this is the last week of your schedule change. Starting next Tuesday (July 24) we are back to Jenny G doing Tuesday evenings, Barb A doing the adoption table on Wednesday evenings and Jen & Lauren doing Thursday evenings. Please let me know you are aware of the change.
Say goodbye to Mouse and the Incredible Loki...

Unfortunately the holds for Diana and Blinky have been pulled. The applicants never responded to several calls from the Shelter. The holds on Izzy and Lizzy are still pending. To date the Shelter has not received the required paperwork from the applicant's landlord. Do not hestitate to take a second hold on them.
The Cape May County Animal Shelter Alliance (CMCASA) is going to have an information booth at the annual 4-H Fair on Thursday, July 19 through Saturday, July 21. The booth is there to promote the animals of various organizations in Cape May County - including Animal OutReach, Animal Welfare Society and the Cape May County Shelter. Vilma is organizing volunteers to man the booth during the following hours: Thursday, July 19 and Friday July 20 , 3:30-9:00pm, and Saturday, July 21, 11:00-5:00PM. If you are available to cover any of these hours let me know and I will put you in touch with Vilma. It is not necessary to be there the entire time - if you can only do one or two hours, no problem.
I am bringing two new guys down to PetSmart on Wednesday. I will post an update with pictures later this week.
