When Marcell came to us the first time, he was slightly conflicted about trusting humans. Fast forward a week and he had figured it out. Good people are good! Marcell got adopted by someone that pretty much immediately let him outdoors on her rural property (too many no-noes to count!). When he got picked up and brought to us by a well-intentioned neighbor and we called the adopter, she told us that she “couldn’t get him to stay on her property” and relinquished him to us.
Fast forward again to a sweet, silly, savvy cat that believes in second chances. The previous adopter said he was scrapping with some other free roaming cats but we have no way to know if Marcell was the instigator or the victim. That combined with the fact that he is mosty white and therefore more susceptible to exposure-related skin issues means Marcell should be predominantly indoors (although he would love a catnip! – ask about this or enjoy doing a web search). With patience and good intentions, Marcell will make biscuits like Martha Stewart as you scratch his head and cheeks and will proceed to roll slowly onto his back, stretching his front paws out towards you to hook you forever. Multiple volunteers reports that Marcell enjoys being petted and melts into your hands (and arms) and even when he reaches his limits (a cat’s prerogative), Marcel will simply gently paw you to let you know it’s break time.
What an incredible week it has been, we are so excited to announce the following adoptions this week:
Maeve - adopted!
Precious - adopted!
Monkey - adopted!
Shyra - adopted!
Tiger - adopted!

If you're interested in adopting visit our website at www.middleburghumane.org to view our adoptable animals and fill out our application (this is step #1 ). We are still conducting adoptions on an appointment basis.
Thank you again to the new families and congratulations!
These puppies were abandoned in a hidden nook up the hills, in a cage, where they can’t even access food or water :(
We’ve took them in and they’ve all settled down in foster families
How do your pets feel about you staying home? All. The. Time. Tell us in the comments below.
Spider Monkey is just kidding here and is actually thrilled his "servants" are staying home with him every day. This lovable guy purrs so loudly when he is held and is soaking up all the extra love (and giving it back tenfold). He is hoping that he can find his forever servants, er, he means forever family so just fill out an adoption survey here and an adoption counselor will be in touch soon.
HAPPY GOTCHA DAY JAZZY GRACE!! 🎉 you’re officially 🖐🏼 years old!! i am so glad i got “stuck” with this sassy, silly, derpy, snuggly little creature when i decided to foster two years ago. she’s such a little princess and i don’t know what i’d do without her. 🖤
Spending all the time I can snuggling this sweet boy for the next few days before he leaves me.👼🏼 I never imagined that Roscoe getting sick and me having to make these decisions would be how he would have to go. I’m absolutely dreading next week when I have to tell him goodbye, but I know it is for the best so that he no longer has to suffer in pain.
The Berry sisters wanted to stop by and remind everyone to keep in touch with your loved ones in these challenging times.
With quarantines happening all over the world in response to COVID-19, it can be easy to get overwhelmed. Check in on loved ones you can't actively be with to make sure they are doing okay, especially if they are older or immunocompromised.
When times are stressful, never forget that your pets are there to provide free love. If you don't have a pet of your own but think you can support an animal in these trying times, consider quarantining with a foster animal!
Silvia is a sweet senior dog who loves receiving attention. She is happiest around her person and is easy to love. Silvia will win your heart and earn her place by your side. She is looking for a home without children. She is smart and great in the home but does show separation anxiety. A little love and patience and you'll have a wonderful companion.
She came to POMDR from Santa Cruz County Animal Services after her person said they had grown too old to care for a dog. She was adopted and came back as the senior woman in her last home was tripping over her.
Well it’s safe to say Emma is feeling MUCH better!!!!! She just surprised me by jumping onto the recliner !!! I’ve had her 4 weeks now and she’s never come close to attempting that..... I even thought she must not have been allowed on the couch in her previous life. And here she is... my blind little daredevil. Thank God she didn’t bust the stitches in her side!! it’s amazing to me how much a little TLC can do for a dog. Her personality is starting to shine 🐾❤️
3 wee kittens were brought to us this morning: Maddox, Knox and Pax, 2 females (rare!) and 1 male! Found in front of someone’s home with no momma cat around, we were asked to assist.
These beautiful orange kittens have an upper respiratory infection. They are adorable and will be available for adoption as soon as they are feeling better!
Happy #whiskerwednesday from Karen, one of our adoptable cats.
We aren't entirely sure where Karen came from, but she showed up one day outside the office of one of our fosters on Cannon Air Force Base. From the start, she was friendly. She happily jumped into her foster's car where she settled onto her foster sister's lap. Karen has been with us since.
Karen loves carbs more than anything else, and her foster has to keep bread, crackers, tortillas, etc. in the microwave lest they be devoured when the family isn't looking. What can we say? She's just a carb kind of girl.
Karen is estimated to be about 2-4 years old. She does well with kids, dogs, and other cats. To find out more about her, visit her page on our website which is linked in our bio.
Been exactly 5 years since Roog came into my life🤩🤍
I love this boy more than I can usually express. He’s taught me more about horses & myself than any other horse I’ve ever been around.
I don’t know who I’d be today without him🤍
In other news, since roping & drill practices are now cancelled, I’ve been focusing a little more on using my new camera🤪
I’m still riding, but trying to find some ways to use my camera without actually having to be behind it all the time.
I’m hoping that eventually I’ll figure out how to take videos of all that I’m learning/doing with the ponies.
I got this really neat tripod that I can wrap around the panels to be able to take these shots. Plus I got a cord that I plug in that allows me to hold the button in my hand! Not sure of all the technical terms😂
Roog was very patient with me yesterday as I tried to set it up perfectly to get this cute little candid 😊
Anyone have any recommendations on some good online material to teach me more about my camera? I was given a Canon Rebel for Christmas that I barely know how to use😂
As always, I love my horse. I’m bummed we aren’t getting to go to roping practice till this all blows over ☹️ but excited to focus on some other fun stuff.
P.s. peep his blanket in the background that matches my vest. Scoob also has a matching bandana. To say I like red plaid is an understatement😂
