Hello, my name is Pan, a 9 years young Long Coat Chihuahua mix ready for a second chance at a forever home. I need some tender loving care and a warm lap to cuddle up in! I have some allergies, but the vet is working at resolving them. Give me a chance to be your buddy; I love to play and give kisses. Take a look more information and photos by clicking on my photo above.
It's been a busy time at the shelter with volunteers transporting animals to and from very successful adoptathons and driving to meet transports so that our Monroe County homeless will quickly find new homes and have a second chance at a wonderful future. Drivers are needed to shuttle animals for veterinarian checkups and also to meet larger transport efforts. Some of the runs are very local, others may involve some longer drives. If you can help from time to time, please call the shelter at 423-442-1015.
Most of the animals that are eligible for rescue runs need to be housed out of the shelter for a short period of time. Many are puppies, but some older dogs need temporary housing as well. There have been times when we could not give an animal a spot on a rescue run because he or she didn't have a foster home. If you think you might be able to provide temporary care to help these animals, please call the shelter.
The Monroe County Animal Shelter is located at 170 Kefauver Lane (behind Wal-Mart) in Madisonville. The shelter is open Tuesday-Friday from 10 AM to 5 PM and on Saturdays from 9 AM-1 PM. Volunteers and donations are critical to the successful operation of the shelter. This week's special supply need is for crates of all sizes (wire or plastic), paper towels, Dawn detergent and bleach.

NOTE: All animals are spayed/neutered before adoption.
Please spay or neuter your own pets and help us keep our county's pet population under control.
