By Madison-Jefferson Co. Animal Shelter

Happy New Year

My name is "TERRA",
I'm a pretty girl with a loving nature and a nice purr.
My fur coat is the colors of autumn. I'm a Tabico - that's a Tabby/Calico mix.
I'm not particularly fond of being picked up and carried.
So, a household without young children would be my preference.
If you have dogs, be sure I have a space of my own to get away from them.
I am not mean to dogs, but I'm 3- to 4-years-old and will need time to adjust to being around them.
I'm SPAYED, up-to-date on vaccinations and just $45 total to adopt.
I'm "ITTY",
I'm an attentive, well-behaved boy. You can tell I had a home. 
I don't understand why I was left behind when the family moved.
I walk nice on leash and will politely wait to be hooked up.
I probably know commands, but am currently too nervous to show them to you.
My brother, who has been adopted already, knows sit and give paw. 
I don't like being left outside on my own. I'm good at escaping my yard and also will dig.
So, please do not leave me outside unattended and leash walk me a few times a day.
My prior owner says I'm good with kids.
I also keep my kennel very clean! So, I may be housebroken!
I'm a 4-year-old, Boxer mix who weighs 57 lbs.
I am up-to-date on my rabies vaccination, so my adoption fee is $30 plus the cost of my neuter.
We are truly blessed to live in such a generous & caring community.
As of November 1, new pricing is in effect at the shelter.
Dogs and Cats are $30 plus prepayment of their spay/neuter and rabies vaccination.
Cats who are already spayed/neutered are $45 plus prepayment of their rabies vaccination if it is needed.
Dogs who are already spayed/neutered are $55 plus prepayment of their rabies vaccination if it is needed.
The total cost of the spay/neuter and rabies vaccination varies depending on the veterinarian or clinic chosen. 
Cats and kittens are $45 off their adoption and spay/neuter fees courtesy of the shelter and the Jefferson County Humane SocietyCats who are already neutered or spayed are $45 and not part of the special.
  • The shelter accepts both STEEL and ALUMINUM cans. The funds made with recycling go into our medical fund. Please rinse out the steel cans well (we don't want to encourage not-so-adoptable critters to hang out around the shelter) and place them in a separate bag from thealuminum cans. Drop both types of cans (remember, in separate bags) in the large labeled bin that is on the east side of the shelter - that's to your left when facing the shelter's front door.
  • The shelter is part of the Kroger rewards program. To participate, register your Kroger card at and enter NPO number 63224.
  • Support the shelter every time you walk your dog through the Walk for a Dog cell phone app available at Google Play or the Apple App Store. The shelter is listed as the Madison-Jefferson Animal Shelter.
