Pet of the Week:
MCFA
Thunder

Meet Thunder, the Monroe County Friends of Animals Pet of the Week. Unfortunately for Thunder his human had to surrender him because of landlord issues. Now just a couple of weeks before Christmas this 10-month-old, gentle, Shepherd/Rottweiler has no home. Both sides of Thunder’s family rank high in kid friendliness and affection for their family. However, the best primary human for a dog with Thunder’s background is a human with experience with dogs as both German Shepherds and Rottweilers can be strong willed, but both breeds are also known for their intelligence.

Since Thunder is young he will require lots of exercise and long walks. Also, as is true of all large breeds, he should be well-socialized with other dogs as well as humans. You can expect your time spent with Thunder to be rewarded with many years with a dog who is not only friendly and faithful to you, but also the rest of the members of his human family.

All cats and dogs that are adopted from Monroe County Animal Shelter are spayed or neutered, have age appropriate vaccinations, testing for heart worm, and are microchipped (with registration).

  • Learn more about the work Second Chance Pals does on their webpage http://secondchancepals.org/ Questions? Interested? Contact Sindy at sindywakefield@gmail.com

                       

    Special thank you to Brenda, Sue, Deb R, and Rachel for all their help with the cleaning and caring of the animals during this time when we are shorthanded.

    Adoption Gift Certificates are available all year. However, they are especially appropriate for Christmas gifts. Give the certificate on Christmas day as a gift to a friend or family member. Then, he or she can select the dog or cat that they want after the chaos of Christmas is over.

    Monroe County Animal Shelter is always in need of 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.

    Please consider offering a foster home to help the pets at Second Chance Pals, a MCFA program. These folks help older and/or sick pets that need more assistance than the usual homeless pet. They cannot be helped until they have a foster home where they can safely stay until their needs are met. Expenses are provided for their treatments and they are closely monitered.

    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.
