    Another reason to attend the Gala:

    Susan Kimball and her team are hard at work making this year's gala one to remember.

    She invited Max A Pooch* to perform, and he agreed. He has a new trick that makes greenbacks appear in a pail. If you like, you may want to share this with friends and on your social media.

    Max A Pooch* the recycled (rescue) dog who puts litter in its place will add a new trick that will help increase the green at the upcoming Gala.

    Pet of the Week:
    MCFA
    Billie, Pewter & Pergo

    Emerald-green eyes are this week’s theme and we have at least 3 cats that qualify. Billie is a beautiful, affectionate, Calico girl about 4 years old with an adorable little meow. She is all hugs, purrs and cuddles while she is giving lots of head bumps!

    Pewter and Pergo are the “Blue Brothers” ... 1 year old, affectionate, Blue Russian mix boys. Pewter wins the prize for the biggest green eyes this week; he also has huge paws which means he makes KING-sized biscuits. He has medium length, soft fur and he loves to play with rolling toys.

    Pergo has shorter hair than his brother but with the same loveable personality. He has smaller biscuit-making paws, loves to be held and is also very playful.

    Samson is an orange/white Tabby who was turned in as a stray. He was not in great shape but the shelter staff got him into great shape again. He was very matted so they had to shave him….he looks pretty “rough” in his picture and in person, but his loveable personality will charm you! Remember-his hair will grow back! This frog will be a handsome prince again, soon!

    Nubbin and Noodles are handsome, funny kitten brothers looking for new home that is partial to redheads! They are about 6-8 months old, socialized, friendly guys - Nubbin is a bobtail and Noodles has a full tail - they are both ready to entertain you with their playful antics.

    Some people comment about the cost of an adoption fee at shelters. Please keep in mind that ALL animals adopted from the Monroe County Animal Shelter are altered, wormed, tested (cat-combo/dog-heartworm), virus vaccination, and rabies vaccination (age appropriate on tests and vaccinations), flea-preventive applied, microchip, $200-$300 (or more) worth of services/vetting. When you consider these costs, the $40-$95 adoption fee is not so bad, is it? When someone gives you a puppy or kitten, if you are a responsible pet owner you will have to pay a vet for everything above. Doesn’t it make sense to save lives and ADOPT from a shelter?

    Please come visit these cats and all of the other cats & kittens ready for their new homes ... Roweana, Sophie, Midnight, Vekma, Belvedere, Shelby, Patches, Arwen, Indiana, Nubbin & Noodles (redheaded kitten brothers) and Hailey.

    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.

                       

    IMPORTANT NOTE: Animal Control is administered through the Sheriff's office. Call the Sheriff's office at 423-442-3911 to report cases of stray animals, animal endangerment or abuse/neglect. Please do not call the shelter.

     

    NOTE: All animals are spayed/neutered before adoption.

    Please spay or neuter your own pets
