Willa is a 10 month old female terrier/bulldog mix. She's an outgoing medium size pup who loves people. Willa is housetrained and is eager to learn all the other skills you'd like to teach her. She was previously adopted but the other pets in the household said "no". She's back at the shelter, wondering what she could have done wrong. Come to the Monroe County Animal Shelter and meet Willa and you'll see what a great gal she is. She's spayed, up to date on all vaccines and ready to go to her forever home.
                   

Shelter Statistics last week: 60 Intakes
9   Shelter/PetSmart┬« Adoptions
20   Transferred to rescue
    3
32
  Reclaimed by grateful owners

                   

Once again, take a good look at these numbers. Sixty animals came in to the shelter and only 9 were adopted locally. If it were not for the tireless efforts of the shelter staff and volunteers to establish and implement our homeless animals transport to various rescue organizations both near and far, we'd have a very, very sad tale to tell. Please spay and neuter your animals so that our intake numbers will drop dramatically. Responsible pet owners spay and neuter and do not let their animals roam free. Your pet may accidentally be separated from you so be sure that (s)he is wearing a collar WITH ID tags and is microchipped. Call the shelter as soon as possible and ask us to post your dog's photo on our Facebook sites so that you have a better opportunity of locating Fido or Fluffy. If you find a stray animal, please let the shelter know. Don't assume that the animal is homeless because it's alone. Family reunions are awesome!

MCFA is looking for volunteers to help with publicity. There are short assignments that could be covered in a small amount of time but that would have significant impact on how the shelter can run a successful, humane operation. If you think you might like to help out in a non-shelter environment, please contact cemox@tds.net. We have a job for every compassionate heart.

The next SNAP (Spay Neuter Assistance Program) voucher session will be held in Tellico Plains on September 10 from 10-11 AM. Visit the SNAP web site http://www.orgsites.com/tn/spay-neuter-monroe-county/ for more information.

Make a day of it on September 10 and stop by the Madtown Muscle Car Club event in Madisonville from 10 am-5 pm at Advance Auto Parts (across from Wal-Mart. Chat with the owners as you admire their special cars. You can also grab a Benton's hot dog, a bag of chips and a drink for a $5.00 donation to MCFA. Tee shirts, baked goods and adoptable animals will make this a great family event. You can add a quick trip across the street and stop in at the shelter to meet our current residents

Mark your calendars:
Our 2nd Road Block for 2016 will be Saturday, September 3rd from 9am-1pm in Sweetwater. The more volunteers we have, the more collections we can take. Sweetwater is always a very good collection point for us, and we really need your help. Everything will be provided for you - we just need your body and time. Please contact us (Tina & Paul at tinatnherbalife@juno.com) if you are available, and we will get back to you about scheduling. If you have a shift preference, 9-11 or 11-1, let us know, and we will do our best to accommodate you!

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!

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.
