Madison-Jefferson Co. Animal Shelter Pets Of The Week

Monday, April 15th, 2019 5:38am

By Madison-Jefferson Co. Animal Shelter

King and Domino

I'm "KING".
I'm a smart boy who is going to need to learn new tricks.
I'm looking for a special family that will be with me through my new start in life.
I had surgery to remove my right front leg.
I'm doing great and am ready to go to my new home.
I'm a playful, fun-loving guy that can be a goofball (the staff says that lovingly).
I listen really well and walk nicely on leash.
I will do best with a routine.
Especially right now I need to know what is expected of me and to regain my confidence. 
Because I'm still recuperating and because I can get mouthy while playing, a home with young children is not ideal.
If you have other dogs I'd like my own space until I've adjusted to my new reality.
I do well with neutered male and female dogs.
I'd like to meet my new dog friends so we can find out before adoption if we'll be compatible.
No homes with cats please.
I'm a handsome, 3-year-old, blue Pit Bull Terrier who weighs 60 lbs.
I'm NEUTERED, up-to-date on vaccinations, and only $55 to adopt.
My name is "DOMINO".
I'm pregnant!
The shelter is looking for a home to foster me and my upcoming kittens until they are weaned.
I'm a loving and attentive kitty.
I'm also a mischievous gal who loves to play.
I'm a pretty Tuxedo who looks like I'm wearing a mask.
I will play-bite, so it's best if there are no young children in the household.
I'm a 1- to 3-year-old, black and white cat.
The shelter pays for our medical care and provides food during our foster.
After my kittens are weaned, the kittens go back to the shelter for adoption.
You can either return me too or adopt me yourself.
Fosters need to fill out an application that can be picked up at the shelter.
If you are interested, please be aware that any animal already in your home must be up-to-date on vaccinations and spayed or neutered.
You must have a home inspection completed by shelter staff and everyone in your home must agree to shelter guidelines.
If I already have a foster home, don't worry, the shelter guarantees there will be other opportunities to foster since it's kitten season.
Kitten Season has started at the shelter. We have pregnant moms and soon will have nursing moms with litters that need to be fostered.
To foster cats or dogs please fill out an application at the shelter. 
Pets that are fostered are pregnant/nursing, being treated for heartworm, or recovering from other illness/injury and are not currently adoptable. Fostered pets are returned to the shelter when they are ready for adoption (unless you make arrangements with the shelter director to adopt your foster).
We do not use fosters for animals who are currently healthy and adoptable or who are on their stray hold as they need to be at the shelter for the public to meet/adopt/reclaim.
If you are interested, please be aware that any animal already in your home must be up-to-date on vaccinations and spayed or neutered. You must have a home inspection completed by shelter staff, and everyone in your home must agree to shelter guidelines.
The shelter pays for medical care and will supply food.
Applications can be picked up during business hours.
