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.
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!
