3 GREAT feline girls are just waiting for you to come in and adopt them…. Faith is a beautiful white/gray tabby - a very sociable girl. Socks is a charming black and white short hair and Valium is a large brown tabby with beautiful medium-long hair (will require daily brushing). She came in a bit matted and her back had to be shaved to eliminate them - she now feels MUCH better and is ready to go! Very friendly and outgoing. Please remember their true purrsonality may not show through immediately in the shelter environment. Take the time to meet each cat. But once you get them home and they feel secure all will be well…. 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.

Some people comment about the cost of an adoption fee at shelters. Please keep in mind that ALL animals adopted from the Monroe County Animal Shelter are examined, altered, wormed, tested (cat-combo/dog-heartworm (age appropriate on tests and vaccinations), flea-preventive applied, microchip, virus vaccination, and rabies vaccination $200-$300 (or more) worth of services/vetting. When you consider these costs the $40-$95 adoption fee is not so bad, is it? When someone gives you a puppy or kitten, if you are a responsible pet owner you will have to pay a vet for everything above. Doesn’t it make sense to save lives and ADOPT from a shelter?

Monroe County residents-you are doing great on Spay/Neuter!!! It’s Working! Each pet altered brings us 1 step closer to the ultimate goal of lives saved and happier and healthier pets. The first step to no kill is no birth! Shelter statistics show significant good news on saving lives, by preventing more unwanted litters. Spay/Neuter of companion and “stray/community” animals is reducing the intake at the shelter. Let’s keep the momentum going! Tell your friends, neighbors, relatives, strangers – SNAP offers free vouchers to qualified Monroe County residents on an ongoing basis. (Next is 8/13 in Sweetwater) If you, or your neighbor’s dog or cat has a litter, encourage them to get the mother spayed AND get all of the litter “altered” prior to giving them away-after they are fully weaned. If you do not qualify for vouchers, PPAW Spay Neuter Clinic in Greenback offers low cost surgeries. Most Spay Neuter clinics only do altering surgeries.

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.
