We’re pleased to announce that, starting today, The Big Something will partner with The Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region to feature pets in the greatest need of adoption Tuesdays through Fridays. It’s our hope that, whether you’re looking to adopt a new family member or not, that you’ll help spread the word about these animals by forwarding the posts to friends or reposting them on Facebook and Twitter. Below you’ll meet our first pet of the day, Sweet Bee. Please help her find a home. Thanks!

Hi, my name is Sweet Bee. I am a two year old, spayed female cat. I came to the Humane Society as a injured stray, and sadly no one came to find me. The resident veterinarian had to remove my badly mangled eye, but I really don’t mind, it just makes me look like I’m winking all the time. I am very affectionate, I love to petted, and I am very playful too! I am called a “Personal Assistant” in the Humane Society’s Feline-ality program. My adoption fee is $68 and includes a free vet exam, vaccination vouchers, and one month of pet health insurance. A $15.00 license is required for city residents. Please come visit me and all of my friends at the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region, 610 Abbott Lane, Colorado Springs, CO 80905. Click HERE for directions.
