Madison-Jefferson Co. Animal Shelter Pets Of The Week

By Madison-Jefferson Co. Animal Shelter

SHELTER ANGEL TREE Help Jefferson County's Homeless Pets

My name is "SAMMIE".
I'm a playful, little GIRL.
I'm a 9- to 11-month-old PUPPY who loves everyone.
I'm friendly and VERY happy when I get to spend time with you.
I'm going to be a small medium-sized dog. I currently weigh 25ish lbs.
I walk well on leash. I do need to learn not to jump on people in my excitement to greet them.
I look forward to training because that means I get to spend time with you!
I get along with other dogs and even cats.
However, other four-legged members of the household should be ready to play with me.
I was skinny when I was brought to the shelter and am still gaining weight.
I was on my own for at least a week until a nice lady finally caught me and brought me here.
I'm SPAYED and up-to-date on vaccinations. My adoption fee is $55.
My name is "EBONY".
Be ready when you open my cage door!
My brother "Mimosa" and I will jump on your shoulders.
It's just one of the games we play.
We're playful siblings that can be adopted together (we would like that since we've never been apart) or separately. 
We've been at the shelter since we were brought here in September with our mom and the rest of our litter.
We are the two black males, so are naturally the last to be adopted.
I really don't understand since we're beautiful and playful.
We've grown up at the shelter, so are very friendly and used to being around people and other animals. 
We're now 5-months-old and would like a home.
I'm $45 OFF my adoption and neuter fee. If you adopt Mimosa too, that's $90 OFF total.
