Maggie is a little Chihuahua/Miniature Pincher blend who will just steal your heart away. She's about 2 years old and wears a snazzy black and white coat. So far, we know that Maggie is housebroken and gets along well with other dogs. She loves to snuggle up in a blanket or next to you. Maggie arrived at the shelter at the end of August and desperately wants a new family to bring her home. Stop by and meet her - she may just be the missing member of your family.

                   

A big thanks to Deb Moore and all the volunteers who bathed, brushed, crated and transported so many of our animals to Turkey Creek for the PetSmart National Adoptathon this past weekend. It was an awesome job and involved much work and lots of volunteer hours. Thanks too, to those who helped showcase our animals to prospective adopters during the three day adoption event. Because of their dedication, 39 of our animals now have found their new forever homes, including 15 of our Monroe County kitties! That's a record-breaking achievement. It couldn't have happened without those volunteers.

If you're thinking about how you can volunteer to help the Monroe County Animal Shelter, we'll be holding an Open Volunteer Orientation Day on October 4 from noon-3 PM. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old and be serious about making a commitment to our animals. Opportunities to work with the animals at the shelter abound, but there are many non-contact areas both within and without the shelter where help is needed as well. Our volunteers really do make a difference. Save the date and watch for more details in upcoming news articles, on Facebook and on our web site www.friendsofanimalsmc.org.

When you visit the shelter or our web site www.friendsofanimalsmc.org, you'll note that many of our animals have been brought in as strays. We make every attempt to find their owners, but despite our best efforts, we aren't always successful. Be sure that your pet has a collar tag and is microchipped with current information so that he or she may be returned to you if lost. A microchip is a simple way to identify a lost pet. Using a very easy, painless and quick procedure a microchip is embedded into an area around the animal's shoulder. You then register your contact information and if your pet is lost or stolen and winds up at a shelter, the chip can easily be scanned and your pet returned to you quickly. If your dog or cat does not currently have a microchip, bring him or her by the shelter and we can perform this service for a low $10 fee which also covers listing with a national registry.

Specific shelter needs this week are for laundry detergent, paper towels, brooms, mops, Dawn Dishwashing Liquid and chlorine bleach. Ongoing donations of these items are ALWAYS needed and appreciated-as you can imagine cleaning NEVER stops at the shelter. Visit the shelter at 170 Kefauver Lane in Madisonville (behind Wal-Mart) Tuesday-Friday from 10-5 and Saturdays from 9-1. The shelter is closed to the public on Sundays and Mondays. Call 423-442-1015 for more information.


NOTE: All animals are spayed/neutered before adoption.
Please spay or neuter your own pets and help us keep our county's pet population under control.
