Proud to be the FIRST Pets for Patriots Shelter in Tennessee! Tues., Feb. 25, was World Spay Day
SNAP (Spay Neuter Assistance for Pets) was set up at the shelter and gave out 73 vouchers for a free spay or neuter procedure for Monroe County animals.  The next SNAP voucher give-away will be on Sat., March 15, 10 am at the Sweetwater City Hall.  For information on how to qualify, contact Mike or Susan Cleverdon at 423-884-6801.
 
Prevention is wiser than destruction.  Please neuter your pets.




“Hi Everyone! We are Spanky (Maine Coon mix) and Darla (Tuxedo) we are “little rascals” and are looking for our forever home(s). We are both well-mannered felines, about 8 months old, already “fixed”, litter box trained and ready to leave the shelter on a moment’s notice…like NOW! Load up a couple of cat carriers and come ‘n get us! Due to a catastrophic illness of our caregiver, we lost our home as there was no one to care for us…though we’re having a fun time here at the Monroe County Animal Shelter…we would prefer to be having a fun in your (our) home. We are VERY sociable, affectionate and loveable. Though it is not a condition of our adoption, we would love to stay together…..Cats are like potato chips…you can’t just have one. We promise to keep you amused with our feline antics! Have you gotten in the car yet? Are you on your way?” 

Cats, like all mammals, engage in play as youngsters and continue to do so even after they have grown up. Play is a complex learning activity that helps kittens develop social relationships and helps them hone their physical and mental skills. But it is also fun, which is why adult cat continue to do it. You can spend many enjoyable hours just watching with amusement as your cat plays. You may find her chasing imaginary playmates in her own world of make-believe. Try giving her a paper sack or a box with holes cut into it so that she can invent games for herself. But interactive play is best. How you and your cat(s) play together is only limited by your imagination. Cats do not require expensive toys. The best toys are regular items such as ping pong balls (6/$1.50 at Wal-Mart), soda bottle caps, straws, and milk bottle caps (these items are NOT dog-safe). 

Having a bad day? Stop by the Shelter during business hours and play with a puppy….cuddle a cat….walk a dog…..rub a kitten belly…..amazing how much better you (and the pet) will feel! FREE-UNLIMITED kitty purrs and puppy kisses available-every day. Volunteer and get your daily dose. Volunteers always welcome! Support the animals and support our shelter. 

Featured shelter needs this week are for laundry detergent, 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.
