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 Chewy link above 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
Camille

Poor Camille, she’s a Border Collie /mix. However, through a twist of genetics she has black fur rather than fur color similar to purebred Border Collies. According to those at the shelter who know Camille, she is sweet, spayed, and just 2 years old.

According to national statistics, most people who adopt dogs from shelters will not adopt a dog that has black fur. The results are predictable, dogs with black fur such as Camille are more apt to be euthanized than dogs with fur of other colors. This link https://www.today.com/video/today/54812988 provides more information about dogs with black fur.

Dogs of Camille’s breed are highly energetic both mentally and physically. They not only require physical exercise, they also need mental stimulation or they can become bored and mischievous. One other note about Camille, she does not like to share her food with other dogs. So be aware of this if you decide to adopt her and have other dogs at home.

More about Border Collies. They are among the most intelligent of dog breeds. A Border Collie named Chaser knows thousands of words. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hi8HFdPMsiM. They love to please, and are loyal.

Could Camille be the next Chaser? Who knows? If no one sees her for the sweet, loving, dog she is, Camille could suffer the fate of countless other dogs with black fur. Call for more information, or stop out and visit Camille at the Monroe County Animal shelter.

Thank you to those who organized and volunteered this weekend to help find forever homes for our animals. Thanks to Esther, Zoe and Deb and those who helped at the actual event and in any other way. Everyone is greatly appreciated.

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.

Please consider offering a foster home to help the pets at Second Chance Pals, a program of MCFA. 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.

A special thanks to Paul and Tina Wenner for their dedication.
