Goofie, a male Treeing Walker Coonhound mix is a little over 2 years old. He came into the shelter at the beginning of January so he is more than ready to go to his forever home. He gets along with other dogs, but would need a home without cats. He's a gem - housebroken and leash trained. Stop by the shelter and visit with Goofie. He may be just the dog for you. All animals adopted from the Monroe County Animal Shelter are current on vaccines including rabies and will have been spayed or neutered. Before leaving the shelter they also receive a microchip and collar tag.


The latest report from SNAP (Spay Neuter Assistance for Pets) shows some amazing results that can be attributed to education, promotion and assistance given to spay/neuter procedures. The reduction in shelter intake and euthanasia since the shelter opened in 2006 is dramatic. In the 5 years since the 2009 peak year, the shelter intake was reduced from 6000 to 3400 dogs and cats. According to SNAP President, Mike Cleverdon, the SNAP program attacks the root cause of the animal overpopulation problem in Monroe County by reducing the number of unwanted dog and cat litters. The goal is to reduce the intake at the County Animal shelter until there is no euthanasia of healthy pets.

SNAP plans to issue more than 120 free spay/neuter vouchers to low income Monroe County residents in Sweetwater on Saturday, February 7 from 10-11 am. Vouchers will be available at the Sweetwater City Hall located at 203 Monroe Street in Sweetwater. Any qualified low income resident of Monroe County can obtain free spay/neuter vouchers at the voucher sessions. If you cannot attend, you can send a friend or relative - proof of residence and information about the pet owner and pet must be provided. Vouchers information is also available at the shelter, located at 170 Kefauver Lane (behind Wal-Mart) in Madisonville. For more information, visit the SNAP web site
