New MCFA Alliance, August, 2017

On behalf of the Monroe County Animal Shelter, The Monroe County Friends of Animals has formed a new alliance with Chewy.com. Our animals are always in need of cat litter, food (canned and dry) toys and enrichment items and Chewy.com is an excellent resource.

Chewy.com
If you have not previously ordered pet supplies from Chewy.com, visit their web site via the link on the MCFA home page at www.friendsofanimalsmc.org and they will donate $20 to MCFA. If you are already a Chewy customer and are using auto-ship, please consider adding one or more 40 lb. bags of Frisco Multi-Cat Scoopable / Clumping cat litter to your order and drop it off at the shelter. If you order 5 or more bags, shipping is free and you can have it sent directly to the shelter. We would love to have an ongoing supply of this particular litter as it is free of fragrance (a known allergen), it clumps well and is LOW-DUST which is a health benefit, especially when cats and kittens come in with upper respiratory issues.

As always, thank you for your support of the homeless animals of Monroe County.

Pet of the Week:
MCFA
Milo, Nala & Kannika

Milo is an 8 year old ball of goofiness. He’s an orange domestic shorthair mix with green eyes. Milo came to the shelter when his owner moved to a new place that would not allow pets. He is a sweetheart that loves to be carried around and enjoys having his head scratched. Milo does well with other adult cats but is not fond of kittens. Has a very dog-like personality who loves to follow you around and is quite a talker!

Nala is a 2 year old black/orange domestic longhair/Persian mix with green eyes and she’s a real diva. She is very friendly and once she approves of you, loves to be petted. Like all longhair cats, Nala will need to be brushed regularly which not only prevents mats but also provides an excellent opportunity for bonding.

Kannika is a 2 year old female domestic shorthair mix with golden eyes and white fur with brown and black patches. Kannika is very friendly and likes being held and cuddled. She enjoys long walks around the house and watching re-runs of Lassie.

Please visit these and all of the cats and kittens ready for their new homes: Sophie, Hardy, Yuli, Fluffy, Tootsie, Jacob, Quella, Tullula, Paxton, Mike, Max, Molly, Wilma, Watson, Mona, Wynona, Zipper, Zinnia, Mira Jane, Trevor, Timothy, Tolliver, Gordon, Kellogg and Eve.

Please remember their personality may not show through immediately in the shelter environment. Their condo is now their “safe place” and some struggle a bit when removed from it. That, by no means does NOT mean they aren’t sweet, loving lap cats. It means they are uncomfortable or scared. Take the time to meet each cat. Pet the cats while they are still in their condo and let them get used to you for a few moments before you pick him/her up. Once you get them home and they feel secure all will be well….

All animals adopted are spayed or neutered, have age-appropriate vaccinations and testing, and are microchipped (with registration). Cats are litter-box trained. $40 adoption fee.

Please keep your pets safe during the eclipse. While it’s unlikely that a pet will look at the sun, according to experts, the sun can damage a pets eyes the same way it can damage a human’s eyes.

Monroe County Animal Shelter is always in need over more volunteers. If you are interested in helping the shelter and the animals, please reach out to the shelter during business hours. If you want to help but cannot volunteer, please consider a donation of clumping cat litter.

Shelter Needs: Cat Litter, Paper Towels, Laundry detergent, copy paper, bleach, Q-tips, cotton balls, and Original blue Dawn-all cleaning & office supplies are always needed!

Our Location and how to contact us: The Monroe County Animal Shelter is located at 170 Kefauver Lane in Madisonville (behind Walmart) and is open Tuesday-Friday from 11-4:30 and Saturdays from 11-2. You may call us at 423-442-1015. The shelter is closed to the public on Sunday and Monday.

                   

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.
