Prevention is wiser than destruction.  Please neuter your pets.

Bubba is at the Monroe County Animal Shelter waiting for his new home and family. He was mentioned in a previous Pet of the Week as very adoptable but was heartworm positive and would need to begin treatment. A generous donor stepped forward and offered to pay for his treatment, so he is currently being treated for heartworm and his new family will have continue that at no cost and then be sure that he's on a monthly preventative so that this doesn't happen to him again.

Bubba is a happy boy and loves both people and animals. He's a neutered Mastiff mix in the prime of his life at approximately 7 years old, leash trained and loves riding in the car. His previous life was lived outside so he will need a secure fenced in yard where he can run and play. No chains to tie-outs for any dog, including Bubba. He's a little on the thin side, but he'll respond well to TLC and a good diet.

He's been at the shelter for a while and needs to find his forever home soon. Adopting a mature dog has many benefits. Puppies are cute and we do have lots of those at the shelter, but a dog like Bubba has already passed through all the not-so-cute puppy behaviors, i.e. chewing, midnight walks and frequent feedings. He'll make a great companion for many years to come. Please stop by the shelter and meet him. Bubba could be just the dog for you!

                   

So many of the animals that come into the shelter are heartworm positive and unless they have a generous donor to pay for their treatment, many of them cannot be saved. Heartworms are preventable by a simple monthly pill and Shelter Director, Tom McCosh urges that everyone place their pets on heartworm preventative. Given the climate in East Tennessee, heartworm preventative needs to be given year round, but the good news is that's is just about totally preventable. Check with your veterinarian to see which medication is right for your pet and get started today. Prevention is 100% easier on both your dog and your pocketbook.

MCAS needs to keep very accurate records on the animals that come into and go out of the shelter. There is simple software to accomplish this, but we are in dire need of some human to enter the data. This task does not necessarily have to be done at the shelter, but can be accomplished from your own home. Please, if you've ever thought about how you can help, this could be the way. You don't need advanced computer skills and training will be available. You can check with Liz or Tom at the shelter to find out more about the job.

Featured shelter needs this week are for laundry detergent, paper towels, brooms, mops, Dawn Dishwashing Liquid and Bleach. Ongoing donations of these items are ALWAYS needed and appreciated-as you can imagine cleaning NEVER stops at the shelter. Visit the shelter at 170 Kefauver Lane in Madisonville (behind Wal-Mart) Tuesday-Friday from 10-5 and Saturdays from 9-1. The shelter is closed to the public on Sundays and Mondays. Call 423-442-1015 for more information.



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.
