Shelter on the Hill: A Humane Society



When the weather turns chilly, Adopt a Senior Pet Month reminds us some four-legged friends need a family, too. In November, consider making a home for an older furry pet during Adopt a Senior Pet Month.

Lil Manny is waiting for his forever person. Someone who loves dachshunds and older cutie senior dogs. He's such a good boy!! Aww, he's snug bug, little walk , some food and he'll be warming your feet at night?????? He's a sweet little guy, easy to walk and just loves people. He's housebroken and so sweet with his sideways little tongue peeping out.... This adorable boy was found as a stray dog.

Manny invites you to come to the shelter and meet him. Adoption hours are Thursday, Friday from 10 AM to 4 PM & this Saturday from 10 AM to 3 PM.



October Winnespago

On a slightly wet day, Friday October 12th, it was a busy day at Shelter on the Hill. We thank Simi Valley Non Profit Spay and Neuter Clinic, Dr Kerry and staff with their Winnespago RV. They spayed/neutered 29 dogs and cats! Also 19 microchips were inserted at a nominal fee of $5, as SOTH paid for the microchip itself. We feel it's so important that cats and dogs can find their way home with microchip ID.

We thank the County of Kern and the Family Resource Center for making vouchers available.

Thank you Pamela McGee and Becky Trask for organizing the event. Shelter volunteers Candace, Teresa, April, Melissa, Connie, and Alice who also volunteered to help make this a success.

Pictured last is our volunteer Melissa and she is getting a microchip for her chihuahua Mikayla.

Bear Aware

Bears in the yard Many residents of the hill have experience bears in their yards, on their streets and even entering their homes in August. We asked Los Padres Bear Aware if we could use their checklist. We recommend looking at their Facebook page as well. If you are having trouble with bears please contact them. Thank you to Charlotte Deese for the photo of the mom bear and two cubs in her Pinon Pines yard.
