Pet of the Week:

MCFA
Blackie

Blackie is a medium size Labrador mix, primarily black with some brindle spots. He was surrendered by his owner. He will do best as an only dog as he has a strong personality. He gets along fine with people and is eager to please. He needs a bit of training to improve his manners as he is walking on the leash. He is an active 1 year old with a lot of puppy energy. Blackie would do best in a home with adults due to his size and energy level.

Please take the opportunity to meet Blackie and the other animals at the Monroe County Animal Shelter located at 170 Kefauver Lane in Madisonville (behind Wal-Mart). It is open Tuesday-Friday from 11-4:30 and Saturdays from 11-2. While you're there please remember their true personality may not show through immediately in the shelter environment. Their kennel 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 dogs. It means they are uncomfortable or scared. Take the time to meet each dog. Pet them while they are still in their kennel and let them get used to you for a few moments before you take him/her for a walk around the shelter one-on-one. 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 over 2 years old, $50 (under 2 years old).

The Monroe County Animal Shelter is located at 170 Kefauver Lane in Madisonville (behind Wal-Mart) 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 website at www.monroecountyfriendsofanimals.org.

Would you consider becoming a foster for puppies, kittens and adult dogs and cats? Some just need a break from shelter life, some are awaiting their turn on a rescue transport, and some just need some love. If you feel that you cannot adopt at this time, think about a short- or long-term foster situation. Call the shelter to find out more information. It's a rewarding experience for everyone involved.

TN Monroe County Animal Shelter is the official Facebook page for the Monroe County Animal Shelter. Adoption Gift Certificates available all year.

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.MonroeCountyFriendsofAnimals.org.
