Cat & Kitten Transporters Needed:

There are not a lot of rescue organizations that take cats. (another volunteer opportunity-help us find more (close) cat rescues!). We have a rescue in the north that accepts kittens but we have to operate and pay for the transport. Finding drivers (team) to make this 2 day run is a volunteer opportunity that we are looking to fill. We would like to do a run at least once per month - maybe twice in the summer months.

The MCFA van is available for this purpose, (THANK YOU PetSmart Charities!!!!) no personal vehicle needs to be used. The more drivers we have, the less often a team needs to make the run. Please contact Cathy Barrett at j_c_Barrett@yahoo.com or 423-884-2515 if you are interested in volunteering as a driver. Yes, we always need donations to help pay for expenses for these runs. Donations via PayPal can be made from our website www.monroecountyfriendsofanimals.org or checks mailed to MCFA, PO Box 106, Vonore, TN 37885.  Please mark your donation "Cat Transport." Thank you for your support!

Shelter Needs:

  • Pedigree dog & puppy - canned & dry food.
  • Friskies canned pate flavors.
  • Purina One dry cat & kitten food.
  • Donations via PayPal can be made from our website www.monroecountyfriendsofanimals.org
  • Or checks may be mailed to MCFA, PO Box 106, Vonore, TN 37885.
All funds are used for animal care including veterinarian fees, antibiotics, testing, vaccinations, flea and heartworm control, cat litter and sanitary litter boxes.

Donations can be dropped off at the Shelter during shelter hours OR Food City in Vonore has a donation barrel by the customer service desk if you want to buy some food and just leave it right in the store. The shelter is closed on Sunday-Monday. We thank you for your kindness and support.

The Monroe County Animal Shelter is at 170 Kefauver Lane in Madisonville (behind Wal-Mart) and is open Tues-Fri 11-4:30 and Saturdays 11-2. The shelter is closed Sunday and Monday. Call 423-442-1015 or check out all available pets on our website at www.monroecountyfriendsofanimals.org. TN Monroe County Animal Shelter is the official Facebook page for the shelter.
