Sky is a Labrador Retriever/Terrier mix who came into the shelter as a stray so nothing is known of her background. She's a little over a year old and appears to have had some housetraining. She's friendly, loves attention and she's received the "great dog award" from the shelter staff and volunteers who provide her care. Come down to the Monroe County Animal Shelter and visit Sky; she's just waiting for her new family to find her.

In partnership with St. Huburt's Animal Welfare Center, we transferred 38 dogs on Tuesday to New Jersey!! This was truly an overwhelming day for several of us. A HUGE thank you goes out to everyone who had any part of this great day, the volunteers, the staff, the trustees, the fosters, the drivers with The Canine Solution and St Huburt's!

The Monroe County Friends of Animals has been out and about bringing shelter awareness to the community. We thank all who made a donation at our Sweetwater Roadblock in early September. Smokey and Miss Kitty were on hand, waving to all you generous motorists.

Many of you had a chance to meet Max-a-Pooch, the "green" dog who made his Monroe County debut at the Muscle Car Show in Madisonville. Max demonstrated how he helps by picking up litter for recycling. Since Max is a recycled dog, having been adopted from a shelter by his owner, Keith Sanderson, this is a subject near and dear to his heart. We love Max-a-Pooch and can't wait to see him again.

Max also traveled to Turkey Creek last weekend for Petsmart Charities' National Adoptathon. He was happy to share his message on the importance of giving homeless dogs and cats a second chance. Thanks to Max and his driver, Keith, and the volunteers who work so hard and long preparing, transporting and showcasing homeless at The Monroe County Animal Shelter. Because of all your tireless efforts, 18 of our animals were adopted at the Adoptathon.

Adoptions were happening back at the shelter, too, but so were the incoming - 61 newbies in all. We thank you for bringing them to us so that we can care for them and hopefully count them in the lucky numbers of adoption and transfer to rescues. Please remember when you think of adding a furry member to your family - Adopt, Don't Shop. There are so many wonderful dogs and cats who find themselves homeless and loveless, just waiting for a family to love. Check with the shelter often or visit our current residents on line at www.friendsofanimalsmc.org. You will be amazed at just who you might find there, waiting for you. Shelter Needs: Paper Towels, Laundry detergent, lots of scoopable/clumping cat litter, copy paper, bleach, Q-tips, cotton balls, and Original blue Dawn-all cleaning & office supplies are always needed!

The Monroe County Animal Shelter is located at 170 Kefauver Lane in Madisonville (behind Wal-Mart) and is 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 and check out all available pets on our web site at www.friendsofanimalsmc.org. Adoption Gift Certificates available all year. Like us on Facebook at TN Monroe County Animal Shelter.

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.
