Week of October 15th

My name is "WINSTON".
I'm a gentleman through and through.
I'm a happy and steady guy. 
I'm easy to please and am just looking for a home that will let me lounge in the sun.
I like to sleep stretched out, so don't expect me to just curl up in a small corner of your sofa as I'm a solid 79 lbs.
As I mentioned previously, I'm a gentleman. So, I do not make messes in my kennel, I walk well on leash, and I know the routine. 
You'll probably notice the redness around my eye. My brindle coloring doesn't hide it well.
It turns out that I have dry eyes and the vet gave me some medicine to help clear up the irritation around my eyes.
I do appear to have mild cataracts, but I'm a 7- to 10-year-old Labrador Retriever/Plott Hound mix and that's pretty common for my age.
You will have to let me get acquainted with new dogs.
Because my vision can be a little fuzzy, I need to know they're not going to bother me.
My adoption fee is $25 plus the cost of my neuter and rabies vaccination. I have a $50 sponsorship that goes toward these fees.
I'm "MISTY".
I'm a frisky KITTEN that loves to play.
I have a game I play. It's called "tickle my tummy".
Play it with me and watch what happens.
If you want to cuddle with me, try it after I eat. That's when I take time to relax.
I'm 7- to 8-months-old and am used to the routine here at the shelter.
I'm a laid back kitty who likes being around people and other pets.
So, I'm okay with a dog in the family, they just need to realize I'm the superior animal.
I keep my cage clean here at the shelter and plan to keep my new home clean too.
I'm a Tuxedo cat, but I have more black than white.
I have a friend named Charo. She's a cuddly kitty. It would be great if we could be adopted together.
But we're okay with going to separate homes too.
I'm $45 OFF my adoption and spay fee. Charo is too.
So if you adopt us both, that's $90 off.
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 the aluminum 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 asthe Madison-Jefferson Animal Shelter.
