Pet of the Week:
MCFA
Mush & Lolo

What???….a two-headed cat? No, not quite….Mush and Lolo are a bonded pair of 7 year old, tabby girls. They were very recently surrendered by owners that had fallen on hard times and wanted to make sure their girls found another happy home. They did NOT abandon them! Lolo has medium hair and Mush is the short hair. They are still so scared and firmly bonded to each other that they are not ready yet to be separated for individual pictures but we already know that they are quiet, gentle girls needing a new home together. They love head scratchins’ and seem to be very affectionate. They have lived with children, dogs and other cats. They just need to be given an opportunity to feel loved and secure again.

Please remember their true purrsonality 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 them 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 cats adopted are litter box trained, spayed or neutered, have age appropriate vaccinations and testing, and are microchipped (with registration). $40 adoption fee.

Please come visit these cats and all of the other cats & kittens ready for their new homes…Roweana, Sophie, Midnight, Patches, Blue and Beverly (housemates), Holly and Halley (TN Orange kittens), and handsome Tex. We have many kittens in the cat room right now that are not quite ready for altering and adoption but will be…this week or next….lots of different colors….

There are many small things humans can do to be a better pet owner which will benefit the pet and the owner. Spend more time with your pet-playing and talking to them, consistently feed quality food, fresh water daily, regular yearly Vet visits for checkups, grooming and nail clipping, safe toys, exercise , and be very observant of any changes in your pet; changes in fur, eating habits, potty habits, activity level, and any lumps or bumps.
                   

All animals adopted from Monroe County Animal Shelter are spayed or neutered, have age-appropriate vaccinations and testing and are microchipped (with registration).

Shelter Needs: Lots of scoopable/clumping cat litter (Tidy Cat), Paper Towels, Laundry detergent, copy paper, bleach, Q-tips, cotton balls, and Original blue Dawn-all cleaning & office supplies are always needed!

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.
