Pet of the Week:

Honey

There is a reason she is named Honey!

Miriam-Webster dictionary definitions of honey include a superlative example. Just by looking at Honey’s smiling face you know she's a honey of a dog. This tan and white lady loves to cuddle. Honey is slightly over 1 year old; she is medium sized, spayed, and is a collie-smooth/hound mix. And for those of you looking for a canine companion who likes to fetch, it is reported Honey loves to retrieve. Plus, she gets along with other dogs, cats, and children. Honey also loves her food and is jealous if other animals are around, so it is best to feed her alone if you have other pets. Of course, a dog as young as Honey will need some loving, training, exercise, and patience. She has all the potential to be a wonderful and loving addition to any household.

Honey has her vaccinations, is chipped and is ready to accompany someone to her new forever home. Visit Honey at the Monroe County Friends of Animals and see if she is the one waiting to be your special pal. Our address is 170 Kefauver Lane in Madisonville (behind Wal-Mart). Open Tuesday-Friday from 10-5 and Saturdays from 10-2. The shelter is closed to the public on Sunday and Monday. Call 423-442-1015, our website is http://www.friendsofanimalsmc.org/

This week was very busy as we prepared for the PetSmart National Adoptathon that was held this past weekend. Thanks to all of those who helped to make this such a success.

When you adopt a dog make sure she is right for your circumstances. For example, a large or high energy dog may not be best suited for you as a senior. A miniature breed may not be best for a family with active young children. Take the time to socialize a bit with the dog you think is the one for you by walking her on a leash, taking him to a fenced-in compound so she can run and play with you. You will learn a lot about the pooch if you do this. Also, and determine how much, if any, training he may have. If the dog needs training make sure you have the time and resources to train her, or your relationship with your new best friend may quickly end.

Due to a shortage of labor we can use all the help we can get. It has been a tough week and we could not have made it without the help of volunteers Tom S, Roy, Alan, Esther, Terry, Sue, Dawn, Tom F, and Deb. Thank you all for helping us this week.

Special thanks to Deb, Bruce, and Zoe for organizing and transporting for the Adoptathon.

As always, thanks to Jenn and Dot.

We celebrate all the volunteers who work with the Monroe County Animal Shelter and the Monroe County Friends of Animals. They are a big reason so many animal's lives are being saved in Monroe County. Smokey and Miss Kitty represent us as good will ambassadors and live in their costumed characters through snow, sleet, freezing cold and blasting summer heat and humidity. A special thanks to Paul and Tina Wenner for their dedication.
