Hola!  My name is Chance. I am six months old and was brought to Saga by my owner who could no longer take care of me.  I’m so thankful to be here and I know someone out there will not be able to resist my beautiful blue eyes and will take me home with them soon.   Please come see me and all my friends at the Saga Humane Society today!

Another Happy Tail from a Saga Dog, Luke! He’s happy, healthy and living the dream of a Forever Home. Adopt a policker from Saga, they’ll love you for it. Bark Bark Wag!
Just wanted to let you know that Luke (aka Lucio) is doing great in Boston! He’s a happy healthy guy who loves his brother!

SAGA Humane Society Says ‘THANK YOU’!

SAGA Humane Society would like to give a big ‘THANK YOU’ to Mike & Danielle the owners of AJ’s & (Average Joes) & their staff for hosting our monthly Cook-off Fundraiser held on Wednesday, May 23, 2012.   What a night!

First, we had the battle of the North and the South bars…Scott Harnish & his staff from Palapa Bar & Grill and Mike & Danielle and their staff of AJ’s…we have not seen anyone bring their own kitchen…but Scott and the boys did!

We had a great night…we had 15 entries and a great crowd!!  We thank everyone who entered a dish.  The battle of the bars was close…but First Place went to Scott Harnish and his crew from The Palapa Bar & Grill with their Bacon with Maple & Chocolate Sinfully Fried. WOW!!  It was great!  And the crowd overwhelming voted for them!  They took home a Nano IPOD.  Second Place went to Laura Sutton with her Artichoke & Shrimp Dip.  She took home a Oyster 3-Cup Mini Chopper and Third Place went to Letti Hernandez and her Cheesy Stuffed Potato.  She took home a Hamilton Beach Juicer with accessories.  The other entries who were all outstanding, and the votes were close were:  Chicken Nuggets w/Honey Mustard BBQ – Wade the Gringo; Spinach Dill & Garlic Dip w/Homemade Bread – Joanne Frei; Pesto Pizza  – Renee Steinmetz; Penguin (Olive) – Nancy Scott; Tropical Roll-ups – LouAnn LeClair; Plaintain Ball w/Peanut Butter, Bacon, Cheese & Onions – Brenda; TNT Shrimp – Kendra from Orange Walk; Slow Smoked (not fried) Chicken Wings – Palapa Bar; Jodie’s Smoked Fish Spread – Palapa Bar; Sausage Dip –Palapa Bar; Salt-n-Pepper Wings – AJ’s; Deep Fried Pickles – AJ’s.

Hi!  My name is Chula.  I’m here with my sister China but she wasn’t in to having her picture taken today!  We are 8 months old and have been at Saga for about six months now.  We get along well with dogs and are very ready to go home with you today!  Please come see us and all of our friends at the Saga Humane Society.


Hi!  My name is Tootsie!  I was rescued a month or so ago by the good folks at Pampered Paws and brought to Saga.  I was a real mess but as you can see I am all better now.  I’m about 1 1/2 years old and would be a great companion to you.   Please come see me and all my friends at the Saga Humane Society today!
