SAVE THE DATE! April 25th MCFA Gala, Tellico Village Yacht Club

Bandit is an American Bulldog mix who has been at the shelter since February 24. He's about 2 years old and is a big, sturdy boy. American Bulldogs are known as loyal, reliable, brave and determined. They are alert and self-confident and genuinely love children. The can have strong protective instincts and do need a confident, knowledgeable leader. Socialization and exercise are important to this breed. If you think Bandit might be the dog for you, come down to the shelter and meet him. He'd really love to have a new forever home.


When you're thinking of adopting a pet from the shelter, keep in mind that the behaviors you see that you might not like, i.e. jumping, barking, shyness, may not be the true personality of that animal. Often animals confined to a shelter existence develop survival skills that may not indicate who they really are. When you come to visit, take some time to visit, walk, pet, communicate and really be open to who that animal might really be. You may find a jewel hidden under his or her shelter cover up.

The MCFA and shelter volunteers and staff wish to offer a huge thank you to all those who helped out during our recent power outage shortage. Thanks to the quick-thinking of Shelter Director, Liz Sneed, the hospitality of Thrift Store Manager, Tina Wenner, and the generosity of all those who opened their homes to foster our animals, we were able to keep all safe and warm for the duration. We thank those who provided transportation and leash walks and those who helped with cleaning. Also thanks to those businesses who supplied us with Kongs and chewies to help our big dogs while away all those hours spent in crates.
