We’re delighted to report that kittens Jill and Jane have been adopted together so they’ll get to spend their lives together. Lucky girls. Peter the rabbit has left us for his new home, while his brother Teddy will be leaving soon for his new home as well. Good news all around.

Saturday, Dec. 16, is the date of the next visit by All Pets Medical Center. If you would like to schedule an appointment for your pet, please contact them at 508-743-8338.

We’d like to thank the Martha’s Vineyard Museum for hosting the Animal Shelter of Martha’s Vineyard for their Lunch Lecture on Nov. 3. A wonderful time was had by all. If you would like more information the museum’s lecture series, please visit mvmuseum.org.

Do you know about Hubbard’s Cupboard? If someone has a financial need, and/or their pet’s life is in danger, we will assist them with the monies being paid directly to the veterinarian.

The Animal Shelter of Martha’s Vineyard is here for our community. We’re always available and our door is always open should your adoption not be a perfect fit. Also, if anyone is in need of cat food, dog food, or a crate, we have plenty and are happy to share. The Island Food Pantry also has pet food for those in need. Just give us a call during regular shelter hours.
