The Monroe County Friends of Animals (MCFA) is having their annual fundraising event at Tellico Yacht Club on May 11th from 5:30 until 9:00PM. This is a wine tasting event with heavy appetizers, music and a silent auction. The event is inside and outside (weather permitting) at the club. The cost is $75 per person. A flyer for the event is attached.

With your help by fostering, we are saving the innocent unwanted animals of Monroe County. We have saved well over 20,000 animals through adopt-a-thons, fostering and rescue transports. In the past ten years the "Saved Rate" for these animals has improved from 35% to 87%.

Please consider attending this fundraising event. Give us a call if you would like to buy tickets or you can purchase tickets at the United Community Bank, the Tellico Village Volunteer Federal Bank, in Vonore and the MCFA Thrift Store in Madisonville. If you cannot attend the event, monetary donations are sincerely appreciated.

"We don't think of shelter cats and dogs as any different from pet cats and dogs; except that yesterday they were a pet and today they're in a shelter, and their behavior may not really reflect who they were in that previous home."

Have you been to the MCFA Thrift Store run by volunteers of The Monroe County Animal Friends of Animals (MCFA)? It's located at 3949 Highway 411 in Madisonville (across from Kentucky Fried Chicken). If you haven't been there for a while, you might be missing out on some tremendous bargains. New merchandise arrives daily and is priced to move. Clothing, shoes, furniture, kitchen ware, bedding, appliances, books - we've got it all. Donations are greatly appreciated and are accepted Wednesday-Saturday from 10 am-3:30 pm. All proceeds go to help the homeless animals of Monroe County. Shopping hours are Wednesday-Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm and worker volunteers are always in high demand. Like us on Facebook for up to date sale information. 423-420-3423.

SNAP (Spay Neuter Assistance for Pets) offers free vouchers to qualifying families for a spay or neuter procedure at participating local veterinarians.  The next voucher session will be held Saturday, April 13th, at the Sweetwater City Hall, 10-11am. Vouchers are available to qualified Monroe County residents.

If you are in another county, you can visit this webpage to find other options close to you: http://www.spaytennessee.org.  PPAW in Greenback also offers low cost neutering at their clinic for anyone who does not meet the income or residency qualifications. Take advantage of these no or low cost opportunities available to EVERYONE.

Please consider offering a foster home to help the pets at Second Chance Pals (SCP), a program of Monroe County Friends of Animals.   These foster homes help older and/or sick pets that need more assistance than the usual homeless pet. They often cannot be treated until they have a foster home commitment where they can safely stay until their recovery needs are met. Veterinary care and expenses are provided for their treatments and they are closely monitored.

Monroe County Animal Shelter is now partnered with Finding Rover, a free service that helps reunite lost dogs and cats with their families, using facial recognition technology. As a partner, the community can now see if their lost pet is in our care with just a few clicks. We encourage everyone to register with a personal Finding Rover account by going to www.FindingRover.com.

Shelter Needs:
  • Pedigree dog & puppy - canned & dry food.
  • Friskies canned pate flavors.
  • Purina One dry cat & kitten food.
  • See our complete list: Wish List
  • 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.

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.
