Pet of the Week:
MCFA
Bunny, Midnight & Starla

Bunny is an indoor-only adorable buff tabby with green eyes. She is approximately 8 years old and has a special secret. Bunny’s two front legs are malformed which likely happened before birth. What makes this a secret? You would never know from how well this girl gets around. She sits up like a squirrel and runs like the wind. She is dog and cat friendly and would prefer a home that is calmer and not very hectic.

Midnight is a mysterious green eyed cat with a silky black coat and delightful demeanor. This one year old male will charm you and will melt your heart.

Starla has deep amber eyes and is a colorful torte. Starla just over 1 year old and is a bit shy but loves to cuddle. Starla is looking to be the star of your home.

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 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….

Please visit these and all of the cats and kittens ready for their new homes.. Samantha, Roweana, Anderson, Maybe, Gerald, Cleopatra, Edith, Silk, Cocoa, Tibbs

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.

SNAP (Spay Neuter Assistance for Pets) offers free vouchers to qualifying families for a spay or neuter procedure at participating local veterinarians. The next voucher session will be held Saturday, February 25th, at the Cora Veal Senior Center in Madisonville, 10-11am. Vouchers are available to qualified Monroe County residents.

Calling kitten Fosters: “Kitten Season” is coming up quickly! We need to be prepared for lots of homeless kittens, all too soon. The kittens and the shelter need you. We are looking for kitten foster homes. As a foster home, you can choose to foster kittens that need to be bottle fed, or a little older weaned kittens that just need to grow up/gain enough weight so they can be spayed/neutered and be adopted or maybe just un-socialized kittens that have not had any or minimal human contact - they just need some TLC so they can be adopted - nothing better than cuddling a kitten….And some of the best reasons for being a cat/kitten foster is that even if it’s pouring rain, you don’t have to walk them. Please call the shelter for additional information.

                   

Shelter Needs: 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!

The Monroe County Animal Shelter is located at 170 Kefauver Lane in Madisonville (behind Wal-Mart) and is open Tuesday-Friday from 10-5 and Saturdays from 10-2. The shelter is closed to the public on Sunday and Monday. Call 423-442-1015 and check out all available pets on our web site at www.friendsofanimalsmc.org. Adoption Gift Certificates available all year. Like us on Facebook at TN Monroe County Animal Shelter.

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.
