  • 3/26/2017 - In the latest episode of Pets and Their People Claire Moxim interviewed the director and communications associate as guests. Since their founding they have rescued more than 900 horses, and they handle about 60 horses at their equivalent to a shelter.

    They have about 90 volunteers, are self funded including their stable and pastures, and take no government money. It is interesting to learn how other animal advocacy groups operate. You can watch the film at https://vimeo.com/209913687

“Flea Season” did not stop this winter due to mild weather. Did you know that fleas are not only annoying but they can also be dangerous to your pet? Fleas are more than just insects that bite and suck your pet's blood. Yes, fleas can also transmit diseases to your pet including HEARTWORMS! And it is preventable!

The most common and annoying disease caused by fleas is flea allergy dermatitis. Some dogs and cats are allergic to the flea saliva and just one bite will cause them to be miserable. Dogs and cats with flea allergies will scratch resulting in hair loss and skin lesions, even from just one flea. Another disease fleas can transmit is tapeworms.

The best way to prevent all of these conditions is to prevent the fleas! There are many safe and effective preventative medications available from a veterinarian, for just this purpose. Many of the supermarket/discount store/over-the-counter “preventives” are not safe and can be very dangerous. It is best to purchase from your vet. Some products also include a Heartworm preventive. These preventative medications should be used every month in Tennessee-not just in the summer months!

                   

Shelter Needs: 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!

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. The shelter is closed to the public on Sunday and Monday.

Call 423-442-1015 and check out all available pets on our web site at www.friendsofanimalsmc.org. Adoption Gift Certificates available all year. Like us on Facebook at TN Monroe County Animal Shelter.

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.
