Special thanks to Walmart for the use of their facilities.

New Van Courtesy of Combined Energy Services!

Many thanks to Combined Energy Services of Dingmans Ferry, PA and Monticello, NY. 

Owner Mike Taylor of CES recently responded to our request for the donation of a van to the shelter.

Rather than scrap an older van they donated it to us and even found an engine that was needed to replace the old one.

Pictured is PCHS Shelter supervisor Kayleigh Keveson, Mike, PCHS Executive Director Barry Heim, Kyle Stalter of CES, PCHS Kennel Manager Janet Heim, and some of the critters that will be helped by this donation.

Kuranda Beds Needed

We are currently in need of new Kuranda beds to replace our existing ones. We have had them for a long time (and appreciate those who have donated them in the past) but many need replacing as they are showing signs of wear and tear.

We are looking for all sizes. The beds come in plastic and aluminum, the latter is preferred because it lasts longer.

If you wish to donate right from their website, click the following link which will take you to the page which will let you donate to us directly:

These are great beds which keep the dogs off the cold floor, they are a quality product as well and any donation will be appreciated.

Girl Scout Troop 591 Keeps on Giving

7/23/2011 UPDATE!!

On June 9th all the girls from GS Troop 591 received their Bronze Award!!

Well deserved!

5/24/2011 - After the girls of Troop 591 completed their volunteer requirements to earn their badge, they’ve continued to help the Humane Society because (they tell us) they feel their assistance is going to a cause they believe in – and because helping with the pets at an adoption event is FUN!
Composed of 5th and 6th graders, the troop’s volunteers donated over $500 worth of pet and shelter supplies through their own individual donations, from donations solicited from Bushkill Boarding, and from class mates at Bushkill Elementary and Lehman Intermediate schools.

“It is so rewarding to see what the girls are getting from their experiences, the pride they show in helping, and their enthusiasm with the pets,” noted a shelter volunteer involved in helping to set up the scouts’ participation. “Their leaders and involved parents are very instrumental in giving the girls this opportunity, and we are grateful to them as well,” the volunteer concluded.

Groups interested in becoming involved in gathering donations, helping out at the shelter or events should contact the Humane Society at or by calling the shelter and leaving contact information so we can get in touch.

An Angel In Trouble

Angel, a senior Border Collie/Flat-Coated Retriever mix, was surrendered to another shelter because her owner was moving and was not going to take her along. She spent her whole life on a chain outside with little or no human contact. She is 8 - 10 years old and has an old broken or dislocated leg. Being a senior and having an old injury, Angel did not stand a chance of Adoption. So, she was scheduled for euthanasia and even given the first shot to start the process. However, just before she was given the second shot it was discovered she was pregnant and ready to have babies. Angel was placed back in a kennel and allowed to wake up............3 days later she gave birth to 7 healthy babies.

UPDATE: Angel's puppies are now 6 weeks old and they are going to another shelter to be adopted. However, Angel was going to be left behind and stand the same fate as before she had her puppies. We, at Pike County Humane Society couldn't stand by and let her meet that same fate. Our hearts broke for this beautiful "Angel". So, Angel will be coming to our shelter on Saturday, April 23rd. She will get her much needed rest, going to a specialist (Our wonderful Dr. Carlos from Valley Central) for her leg and will be given the love and compassion she so well deserves.

4/26 UPDATE: Angel had her surgery today. She was scheduled to go down today, however, she was in such pain with her leg that I took her yesterday. She was so scared that she hid under the bench of the Doctor's office. Her leg is broken and it is due to a very old injury. Angel suffered for years with a broken leg. Her surgery will be $1200.00 for her spay and to fix her broken leg.

Why do we do this? WE CARE! All of us at Pike County Humane Society believe that no animal should die without knowing human love, kindness and compassion. Whether it is for an hour, a day or a year. Help us help her. We are in desperate need of funds to help with her surgery, spaying and other medical needs. Please find it in your heart and see what we see in this beautiful, senior Mom. She took care of her babies even with a broken leg. Angel will also be up for Adoption. If there is a family who wants to give an "Angel" a home and fulfill her dreams of what it is like to be loved, then come see her this Saturday.

Please, we are begging for help with her medical bill. Our funds are extremely low but we could not let this little girl die. She stayed alive to give her puppies a life, we felt that she deserved to live too. PLEASE find it in your heart to help our "Angel".

Donations can be either mailed to our address at PO Box 255, Milford PA 18337, or sent thru our Paypal Account (using the link above). Please notate on the donation that it is intended for Angel's care.
