    - Hey guys, I'm Kellogg! I'm currently searching for a family to love me and to love in return. I really enjoy the company of people. I will curl up in your lap for a snuggle. I came to the shelter as a stray, when I got here I had a terrible skin infection. I am still missing some of my hair, but my shelter friends are taking really good care of me and it is growing back! I know I'm a senior dog, but I'm not ready to be bald just yet! The right home for me would not have any cats or critters, and the children should be over 12 years old (for my comfort)- I seem to enjoy the company of other canines. If you would like to meet me, I would really like to meet you!

    - I'm a regal male tabby; I prefer the spectator life, although the laser pointer intrigues me, and I chirp at it when I get really excited. Give a swat or two at the wand toys too. I'll sit in your lap too once we become pals. Yep, I'm pro lap. My favorite thing, though, is a scratch or two on the head -- I'm a cat who won't ask for much! If I could be your one and only cat, we would be so happy together. I am patiently awaiting my turn to be picked for a new home. So please come on over so we can get properly introduced. Just ask for Bisquick. I’m obligated to report that I am FIV+. Please don’t pass me by! You don’t need to worry. A positive result doesn’t mean that I will have significant health issues in the future. I can live a normal and happy life. I want to go home and do all the other things that kitties do, like soak up the sun, chase toys, meow for my dinner and give you all the love, loyalty and happy companionship that I possibly can. Us, FIV+ kitties can live safely with non-positive kitties as long as we do not fight (FIV is only spread through deep bite wounds). And it is NOT transferable to people or dogs!

  • | Arts and Entertainment, Dr. Seuss, musical, live
    - Show times at 1:00pm and 4:00pm.

    Tickets: All seats $15

    "Oh, the thinks you can think" when Dr. Seuss's best-loved stories collide and cavort in an unforgettable musical caper! Adapted from the Broadway version, this musical adaptation, especially for young audiences, features The Cat in the Hat as the host and emcee (and all-around mischief-maker) in this romp through the Seuss classics.

    When the sweet, good-natured elephant Horton hears a small cry for help coming from a small speck of dust, he promises to rescue and guard it because "a person's a person, no matter how small." Along the way, Horton meets JoJo, an imaginative young Who from Who-Ville; Miss Gertrude McFuzz, the one-feathered bird; and the amazingly lazy Maysie La Bird.

    Dr. Seuss's beloved classic characters find themselves intertwined in an incredible crazy-quilt adventure, in which the power of imagination and the most miraculous "think" ever save the day!

    This program is approximately one hour in length and is appropriate for audiences in grades K-5.

    (An HSHA exclusive)

    Debo: OK, what is it that you heard?
    Susie: They are saying we are a bonded pair.
    Debo: I thought we were brother and sister, born in 2012?
    Susie: We are. But the humans say we are bonded, and that means we have to be adopted together.
    Susie: They also said we are part Dalmation and part Rottweiler.
    Debo: I have no idea what that means. We don't look like either of those.
    Susie: Let's just go with it? It's on the paperwork. Plus, everyone loves that you have different colored eyes!
    Debo: I guess it is my strong point.
    Debo: I love blankets and milk bones, do you think our new family will have those?
    Susie: Of course! Our new family will have lots of those. I hope they know that the right home for us will not have any other pets and children will have to be over 12 years old.
    Debo: You promise we will stay together?
    Susie: Dog's honor, big brother.
    Debo: Love ya, little sis.

    Come meet Debo & Susie!

    - Rated R, 2hrs & 17mins
    Drama

    After the death of his older brother Joe (Kyle Chandler), Lee Chandler (Casey Affleck) is shocked to learn that Joe has made him sole guardian of his nephew Patrick (Lucas Hedges). Taking leave of his job, Lee reluctantly returns to Manchester by the Sea to care for Patrick, a spirited 15 year old, and is forced to deal with a past that separated him from his wife Randi (Michelle Williams) and the community where he was born and raised. Bonded by the man who held their family together, Lee and Patrick struggle to adjust to a world without him. Written and directed by Kenneth Lonergan (You Can Count on Me), Manchester by the Sea has been nominated for five Golden Globes, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Actor, and Best Supporting Actress, as well as for Screen Actors Guild awards. It is likely to repeat these nominations for the Oscars.
    Ty Burr of Boston Globe writes that the film "is an experience worth having, not for the magnificence of its impact or the far-flung grandeur of its settings but for the way it illuminates with quiet, unyielding grace how you and I and our neighbors get by, and sometimes how we don't." Ann Hornaday of the Washington Post says that "Manchester by the Sea is a film of surpassing beauty and heart. Even at its most melancholy depths, it brims with candid, earnest, indefatigable life."

    - Debo and Susie, In Their Own Words
    (An HSHA exclusive)

    Debo: OK, what is it that you heard?
    Susie: They are saying we are a bonded pair.
    Debo: I thought we were brother and sister, born in 2012?
    Susie: We are. But the humans say we are bonded, and that means we have to be adopted together.
    Susie: They also said we are part Dalmation and part Rottweiler.
    Debo: I have no idea what that means. We don't look like either of those.
    Susie: Let's just go with it? It's on the paperwork. Plus, everyone loves that you have different colored eyes!
    Debo: I guess it is my strong point.
    Debo: I love blankets and milk bones, do you think our new family will have those?
    Susie: Of course! Our new family will have lots of those. I hope they know that the right home for us will not have any other pets and children will have to be over 12 years old.
    Debo: You promise we will stay together?
    Susie: Dog's honor, big brother.
    Debo: Love ya, little sis.

    Come meet Debo & Susie!

    - Hello all! I'm Gizelle, named after the famous supermodel. I think I'm pretty good at working the camera too! My kittens and I are living in a foster home until we all go our separate ways into our forever homes. I love affection from humans and I really love to chase around my favorite stuffed mouse toy. If you would like to meet me, please contact the shelter so we can all arrange a time for us to meet (In between my photo-shoots, of course)..I cannot wait to find my forever home!
