Shelter on the Hill, A Humane Society


Home for the Holidays

Home 4 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 (and lost and found) animal on our web site at and follow us on FaceBook Shelter Onthehill.


Shelter on the Hill continues to strive to meet the needs identified by residents nearly 20 years ago: to RESCUE companion animals from the dangers of the street, REUNITE lost pets with their loved ones, and REHOME adoptable animals to a new and loving family.

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.
