Jed is a 2 year old male red and white hound mix. This sweet boy is a medium size and was transferred to the shelter by the County. He's got the great temperament of a hound dog and would just love to have a forever family to love. Stop by the shelter and meet Jed - he may just be the dog for you!

All animals adopted are spayed or neutered, have age appropriate vaccinations and are microchipped (with registration). Cats are FeL/FIV combo tested and dogs are heartworm tested (if old enough).

Remember-If it's too cold for you outside ...
it's too cold for your pets! Please bring them inside!

It's cold outside for us and even colder for our outside adult dogs at the shelter. We have less than ideal conditions for adult dogs in this cold weather, even with the use of heat lamps and blankets. Thanks to Sequoyah High School's Building Trades Program, lots of dogs are warmer today. They teamed up with Paul Walker at Lowe's for the Dog House Project. Seventeen dog houses were built and donated to the Monroe County Animal Shelter. Mr. Butler's freshman classes thoroughly enjoyed the project and the shelter dogs really appreciate all their hard work. They are enjoying keeping warm in their new houses.

Another big weekend is coming up at Petsmart in Turkey Creek, 11134 Parkside Drive beginning this Friday, February 12. The Monroe County Animal Shelter will be participating in PetSmart Charities® 3 Day National Adoption Event. The hours are 3-6pm Friday 2/12 (Dogs only), 11am-6pm Saturday 2/13, 12-6pm Sunday 2/14 (both dogs & Cats Saturday & Sunday). Adoption fees include spay/neuter, microchip, vaccinations, age appropriate tests, and other vetting.

These events usually result in large numbers of our animals finding new forever homes, but we need many, many hands to help this happen. At the shelter during the week, volunteers are needed to help socialize the animals (cat cuddling, dog visiting), bathe dogs and to help with equipment organization. The animals will be transported in the MCFA van but help will be needed at Petsmart to assist with equipment set up on Friday and breakdown on Sunday around 6 PM. During the entire event, volunteers are needed to help care for the animals and to talk to potential adopters about the our animals. This is an inside event.

Please contact Deb Moore at debramoore2804@gmail.com if you can help in any way. If you'd like to help the cat team specifically, contact Noreene Koan directly at years2you@aol.com

Shelter needs this week are for clumping cat litter, bleach, paper towels and laundry detergent. Volunteers are always needed to help with the animals at the shelter. Even a few minutes spent with a stressed and lonesome animal will help them through the long days of shelter life. Call the shelter at 423-442-1015 to see how you might be a part of making a difference in an animal's life.

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 our web site at www.friendsofanimalsmc.org.

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.
