IMG_0902Welcome to the Humane Association of the Lowcountry(HAL) web site.  Be sure to bookmark it for future reference.  Take a few minutes to explore the wealth of information available to you.

Last month our gorgeous white foster cat, Kodak, was adopted.   YEAH!!    His new home is perfect.  He will receive lots of love from a cat-friendly family as well as feline companionship. He is a lucky boy and we are grateful they found each other.

Make it a Double 
chelsea-tyler sophie tobyWe have four kittens who are about four months old – Bree, Jack, Danny and Sage.  For additional exposure, we are placing them in pairs in the Lobby cage at Port Royal Veterinary Hospital. They get to experience dogs, cats, people, kids, smells, noise and chaos to amp up their resume and confidence.  Hopefully, animal friendly people will fall in love with them or spread the word to potential adopters.  Kittens do better in pairs.   There are many benefits to adopting two cats/kittens.
  • Two cats can play together, satisfying each others need for physical and emotional interaction.
  • Two cats can help groom each other by cleaning the hard-to-reach areas.
  • Cats who live in a multi-cat home are thought to be happier and less likely to get into trouble.
  • Cats who have already bonded or siblings, may be happiest if not separated.
  • An older cat will be quicker to accept two new kittens, who will play with each other and not bother the existing adult cat.
Pam Johnson-Bennett (pioneer in the field of cat behavior consulting) says, “Make it a double:”
  • Twice the loveIMG_1812
  • Twice the cuddles
  • It’s very entertaining to watch two kittens playing together
  • Two kittens can entertain each other while you’re busy or away at work
  • There’s not much added cost to having a second kitten
Please consider opening your home to two cats especially if they are a bonded pair.
The first step is to complete the HAL Adoption application.  It does not obligate you to adopt, it simply starts the process.
