Featured Pet Of The Week

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.

**I have a $50 sponsorship that goes towards my neuter and rabies vaccination.**

9/26 Thompson Rd

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.**

More Pets Who Need Homes     Last updated  2018-10-15

"LEAD" - German Shepherd mix
1-3 yrs   Male 65 lbs

I'm a good boy. I'm really handsome too!
I really like people, am good-natured, and will enjoy being with you.
I have a grown-up personality and seem to be a steady, independent guy.
I might be a no cat sort of dog. I'm not sure.
I look like I'd chase them if they ran.
I might be okay if they are calm around dogs, but have the shelter staff check me out a bit more if you have cats.

**Don't tie me out on a cable or chain. A photographer for the shelter found out I panic when cabled and would definitely hurt myself.**

9/28 Walnut St.

"DUNDEE" - Catahoula Leopard Dog mix
2-3 yrs   Male 63 lbs

I might be nervous when you first meet me inside the shelter.
TAKE ME OUTSIDE, I'll be ready to play and have fun.
I'm a generally well-behaved boy that still occasionally jumps up on people to greet them.
You'll love my unique-looking coat.
I do have some prey drive with small animal, so you will have to be experienced owner if you have small animals

10/3 near Broadway Fountain in Madison

"BREWSTER" - Shar Pei mix
1 yr.   Male 32 lbs.

I'm a complex guy...I don't seem to know what a collar or leash is, so I'm pretty worried about them. Luckily, the staff is working with me to show me that I'm safe and that these things are good. Once I'm feeling comfortable, I start to open up and show my personality. I will need someone to adopt me who will be patient and help me trust and feel safe. Once I trust someone, I seem to want to be by their side and keep them company. I really want a forever home and friend!

10/4 IN-250, Canaan

"BUCKY" - Spaniel/Beagle/Rottweiler mix
7-9 years   Male 29 lbs

I may look like I'm a puppy, but I'm NOT. I'm a small adult.
I look a bit like a mini-Rottweiler (see my second photo!), but I have a hound bark and a spaniel's sad puppy dog eyes and ears.
I know how to use those sad eyes to pull at your heart strings.
I also have a big smile because I just can't help showing how happy I am when you play with me!

I was not a very happy dog when I was brought in and a bit grumpy, but I have adapted and LOVE to hug you and play!
I will need a home without young children though. The children that come by my kennel frighten me.
A calm home would be ideal.
I also would like a home without cats and other dogs.

10/4 1st Street, Hanover

"STORM"--Boxer mix
4 years   Male 46 lbs.

10/8 Walnut St in Madison

"ELIZA" - Short-Hair Tabby w/ White **SPAYED**
1 year   Female

**I have now been SPAYED and I'm up-to-date on my rabies vaccination, so I'm just $45 total to adopt!**

I'm just a little bit of a thing even though I'm full grown.
I'm looking for a home where I can relax in the window or next to you in a comfy chair.
I'm a pretty, brown Tabby with a large white collar, blaze and toes.
I'm beyond ready for my furever home!!!
I came to the shelter pregnant and had my babies here.
Then I was a great mom, but had to wait for them to be weaned before I became available for adoption.
Needless to say, that took awhile and I've been here since May!

5/16 Skyline Dr

"BEAUTY" - Medium-hair Black KITTEN *SPAYED*
8-12 wks   Female 4 lbs

I was definitely named correctly...I'm a beautiful, black cat with softy & silky medium-length fur.
Look into my harvest-moon eyes and you'll fall in love.
I'll start to purr the minute I know you're going to pay attention to me.
I absolutely love people and will snuggle up to you.
I'll even give you nose kisses.
When we're not loving on each other, I also enjoy exploring.
I'm hoping my new home has nooks and crannies I can explore.
I'm a KITTEN who will add "Beauty" to your world.

I'm getting spayed and will be up-to-date on my rabies vaccination, so I'll only be $45 total to adopt!

8/13 Hickory Dr. Hanover

"CHESTER" - Short-hair Buff Tabby KITTEN - NEUTERED
8 wks   Male

**I'm NEUTERED and up-to-date on my vaccinations.

6/1 Telegraph

"AMELIA" - Calico Short-Hair
5-7 yrs   Female

I'm a lap cat, so adopt me and we'll keep each other warm this winter.
We can nuzzle our faces against each other too. I enjoy that.
I'm a delightful lady who would really love a home to lounge around in.
I appear to have had a home once and would love to have one again.
You might find me lounging in the shelter lobby as I do not like being in my cage.
If you do find me in my cage, I might come off as moody until my cage door opens.
I appear to be spayed, but a vet needs to verify that.
So, you'll still prepay for my spay. If the doctor says I am spayed, you will receive your money back.
I'm not fond of being carried, so I'm probably not used to being around young children.
I'm not fond of dogs either. I will hiss or run away.
I would be okay with dogs that would leave me alone or if I have my own space where they can't follow me.
Come in and visit me and you'll find out why I'm a favorite of one of the volunteers.
You'll probably find me in the shelter director's office. I've decided that I like to help her with paperwork.

8/27 Eisenhower Apts.

"POGO"--Gray & White Medium-Hair

I was brought in with a collar that had grown into my neck. I spent some time at the vet.

I'm very affectionate and I have a deep purr!

HELP OUR MEDICAL FUND:
Donate Steel and Aluminum Cans   

Not only can you donate aluminum cans for recycling, you can now DONATE STEEL CANS too!
All we ask is that you rinse out the steel cans really 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.
Thanks for helping with our four-legged friends' medical needs!

HOW YOU CAN HELP

DOC *not available for adoption*
   

I'm the new King of the Shelter. You will find me roaming the lobby and helping to welcome people and pets to our shelter.

Sometimes you'll find me snoozing in my cozy bed on the counter...I love a good massage, so feel free to spoil me!

I'm a laid back guy, so I'm pretty good at putting people and pets at ease. I'm also helping to "cat-test" other animals.

"BU"
   

IN MEMORY

"BU", our shelter cat, went across the rainbow bridge Monday May 22 from cancer.
Bu greeted visitors with love and playfulness, helped at the front desk with paperwork,
let the incoming pets know it was going to be okay, and tested the dogs for cat-friendliness.
But most of all Bu was friend, family & coworker to shelter employees and volunteers.
Bu is short for Shinobu which means to endure.
He will be missed and will endure in our hearts!
Bu was 17 years old.
