Pet of the Week:
MCFA
Fluffy, Simon & Dean

A cat named Fluffy? While it describes this magnificent cat purr-fectly, it’s too ordinary for this loving feline. Fluffy is a 3 year old female domestic short-hair with green eyes, very soft fur and loads of affection. Fluffy was surrendered when her loving owners lost their home. She is anxiously awaiting her new home. What will her new name be once you adopt this loving cat?

Three words describe Simon. Bundle-of-Joy. Simon a 2 year old male domestic medium hair with amber eyes. Simon has a delightfully round face and is what some call a “cow cat” as his soft white fur is adorned with black patches. This boy is easy going and loves affection.

Dean is a 1 year old male domestic shorthair mix with amber eyes. Dean’s not related to Simon but he too has white fur with black patches but Dean’s fur is very short. Dean was brought into the shelter as a stray but he’s outgoing and enjoys affection.

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 the cats 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….

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.

Please visit these and all of the cats and kittens ready for their new homes: Sophie, Tex, Hula Hoop, Hoops, Fairy, Kanga, Keller, Patty, Astoria, Henrietta, Helen, Amanda, Esmerelda, Robin, Happy, Hilary and Hera.

The fourth of July is rapidly approaching. For many pets, it can be a very terrifying holiday. Around this time every year, the animal shelter receives numerous reports of pets that have run away because they were frightened by fireworks. Make preparations now to keep your pet safe during holiday festivities. Find a quiet, sheltered, escape-proof area of your home where your pet can comfortably stay when fireworks are being set off. If you are going to a fireworks display, leave your pet at home in a secure area.

Calling Cat Fosters: The shelter needs 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 kittens that need to grow up enough (3-4 weeks) 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. Please call the shelter (423-442-1015) for additional information.

Shelter Needs: Lots of scoopable/clumping cat litter (Tidy Cat), Paper Towels, Laundry detergent, copy paper, bleach, Q-tips, cotton balls, and Original blue Dawn-all cleaning & office supplies are always needed!

Our Location and how to contact us: The Monroe County Animal Shelter is located at 170 Kefauver Lane in Madisonville (behind Walmart) and is open Tuesday-Friday from 11-4:30 and Saturdays from 11-2. You may call us at 423-442-1015. The shelter is closed to the public on Sunday and Monday.

                   

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.
