Prevention is wiser than destruction.  Please neuter your pets.

Trumpet is a small black and tan 8 year old terrier mix. He's a happy, playful fellow who needs to find a forever home. People are naturally drawn to adorable puppies and kittens. Sometimes not enough thought is given to the amount of time and effort that is required to train an animal to become a family member. Many times, those cute little bundles of joy are turned back into the shelter as they mature and it is no longer convenient to have them in the home. The Second Chance Pals program offers just that - a second change for some of these wonderful older dogs.

                   

With space at a premium, sadly the larger and older animals are still the first to be euthanized to make room for the influx of new animals turned in to the shelter. Many of these animals just need that all-important second chance. These are often the ones that have those highly sought-after qualities of maturity, manners and gratitude to fit in on Day 1 . . . making the best companions.

Back in 2009, over 6,000 animals were turned into the shelter. Thankfully, that number, as well as the euthanesia numbers, have been dropping dramatically. This is due to a vigorous Spay/Neuter program and a record number of pet placements through the dedication of the MCFA family of volunteers holding adoptathons at PetsMart in Alcoa and other venues, participation in Rolling Rescue and our Second Chance Pals program. In the first six months of the SCP program, close to 40 adult pets were saved!

The rewards of adopting and/or fostering an adult dog or cat out of the shelter can be hugely rewarding and life-changing. SCP is always looking for new ideas on how to integrate these pets back into the community and beyond. If you aren't in a position to foster, making a donation toward the medical care and fostering expenses that the program incurs. Won't you help us become a part of the solution? Call the Monroe County Animal Shelter at 423-442-1015 if you think you can help.

Featured shelter needs this week are for laundry detergent, paper towels, rooms, mops, Dawn Dishwashing Liquid and Bleach. Ongoing donations of these items are ALWAYS needed and appreciated-as you can imagine cleaning NEVER stops at the shelter. Visit the shelter at 170 Kefauver Lane in Madisonville (behind Wal-Mart) Tuesday-Friday from 10-5 and Saturdays from 9-1. The shelter is closed to the public on Sundays and Mondays. Call 423-442-1015 for more information.


NOTE: All animals are spayed/neutered before adoption.
Please spay or neuter your own pets and help us keep our county's pet population under control.
