The Angel Fund is a special fund at the shelter to help with expensive medical bills from special rescue cases. Please see Mollie's story and you'll see why we try to help the way we do!
Running scared, hungry, in pain from all the sores on her body, a little 7 pound stray Yorkie is picked up and brought to another shelter. She is diagnosed with Demodex Mange, bad teeth, not spayed or vaccinated. 1 week later, she is considered unadoptable, her time is up. We receive a phone call and asked if we would take her because we are her last chance.
Barry gets to the other shelter and there this tiny little girl looks up at him, licks his face and begs for help. He calls me and asked if I could help. How can we not. She has the worst case of Mange we have EVER seen. Her hair is embedded into her skin from blood, her eyes are almost closed shut, yet she still wags her little tail.
After we take her to the vet, she is placed on meds for her Mange and a secondary skin infection. I have to give her a medicated bath every day to loosen up the hair and to clean off the huge scabs on her body. On her 1st bath, I gently sprayed her with water. Her tiny little face looked up at me to say "Thank You". She tears at my heart and I cried to think that if we didn't help her, she would have never known what it was like to be loved.
Mollie is in her 3rd week of treatment. Her hair is all shaved off, her eyes clear and she even had a dental. We still have a ways to go. She will still need to be spayed and vaccinated.
I know some people will ask, "Why do we help"?. The answer is simple. At Pike County Humane Society we are a family of humans brought together to help and care for all animals that have no one to care for them. It is our mission in life, but we need your help. You are the angels that help us help them. For this reason, we are begging for your help with her medical needs. Please find it in your heart to donate and help this precious angel.

On June 9th all the girls from GS Troop 591 received their Bronze Award!!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the shelter and leaving contact information so we can get in touch.

Join us the Saturday of Mother's Day weekend at Walmart in East Stroudsburg from 10-4.
Spring has sprung and this is the perfect time to think about adopting your new best friend. We will have dogs and cats.
We will also have a bake sale that day and will be collecting donations. Please come out and show your support.
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.

It was great to have the helping hands of a group of Bushkill’s Troop 591 scouts at our Country Kettle Adoption Days on April 9th and 10th. While being shown how to handle the cats and kitties and the pups and dogs, the girls enjoyed playing with and socializing our felines, and cuddling and walking the smaller dogs at our event.
“Our pets really benefit from exposure to kind and gentle young people, making them more adoptable as they become more comfortable with loving humane contact,” noted Phyllis Simpson, a Humane Society volunteer who works with our Kathy Varkados in lining up volunteer opportunities for individuals and groups.Pictured here are some of the participating scouts and pets: Abril holding little Trish, Corrine and Sulai holding Chihuahua twins O’Malley and McGuiness, and Edna with Bella, a sweet little Schipperkee /Jack Russell pooch.
