Bolt is our Pet of The Week, sponsored by Easy Pet Fence!

This handsome boy has been with us since August 2022 and is quickly approaching his two year anniversary of being in our care with hardly any interest in that time period! While he is still a relatively shy cat, Bolt has made great progress with both staff and volunteers and would love to find a home with other cats where his humans will understand that he may initially enjoy the company of another cat over the affection of a person.
One of the quickest ways to Bolt's hearts in through treats and plenty of patience! Bolt LOVES nothing more than squeezable/lickable cat treats and it is the quickest way to make him your friend. If you have a treat for Bolt then you are able to do just about anything with him at that time and he will even crawl up as close as he can to you to get a bite! Bolt has also been a big fan of feather toys and anything that has catnip/silvervine in it and can often be seen bouncing around or rolling after toys. Bolt does currently live in our free-roam cattery and would do best in a home with another cat to keep him company. He has been very agreeable with almost every cat he has ever met and is certainly not one to instigate a fight and would rather find a playmate to keep him company or curl up somewhere else if there is a cat being grumpy with him.
Bolt enjoys spending his time relaxing on our cattery's cat trees and has a blast jumping from wall shelf to wall shelf when he has the zoomies and is in the mood to play.
Mr. Bolt has been waiting patiently for a family to come his way and open their heart and home to him. If you feel you could be the home for Bolt then stop by and meet with him today!

Bolt is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.

Mr Bolt is the best! He is my favorite and if I didn't have an ornery orange boy, and an ornery husband, I'd take him in a heartbeat. He has so much love to give. He'd be perfect in a multicat house as he plays the submissive role always. He loves all treats but lickables are his absolute favorite 😍

The thoughts and prayers from the staff at the Antietam Humane Society are with the families of the Philadelphia Avenue fire. Our hearts and hopes go out towards their animals that they may have escaped and be found safe.

We unfortunately did receive two cats the day of the fire that did not make it. One was micro chipped and the owner has been contacted and informed. The other is an unneutered male tabby that has not been claimed yet ***Update 6/17 - the male tabby cat has been identified by it's owner. We are sorry for your loss***.
In the unfortunate event that anyone discovers that their pet did not make it out of the fire we will temporarily house your beloved pets remains until rainbow bridge arrangements can be made.

The AHS Pet Food bank is also open to any of the victims of the fire for their pet, donations can be dropped off or picked up if needed. The Antietam Humane Society stands by its communities in good times and bad, we are only a phone call or message away.

Below are photos of the animals that we are aware of so far that are still missing.

He or She is Precious

What a beautiful baby, thx for he or she ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Happy Saturday Caturday! 🐱
Are you more of a single cat person or would just like to have one furry friend as your companion? Good news! We have plenty of adoptable, human-friendly cats that would love nothing more to be the only kitty in your heart and home.
Many of these adoptable cats have been our longer term residents and are still awaiting the right adopters to come along. Just because they would rather be in the only kitty in the home does not mean they won't make up for it with all the love they have to give! ❤️
More information on each cat can be found under their individual photos as well as our website.
