Lorna, top, is blind and doesn't let that slow her down. She was born blind, but may have some peripheral vision. She is a healthy, happy and affectionate kitten. She is a 9 to 11-month-old, brown and white tabby. She has medium-length fur.

T-Jay, bottom, is gentle, sweet and affectionate. He enjoys attention, focuses on people and would likely train easily. He acts like a puppy when it's time to play or go for a walk even though he is 3 to 5-years-old. He is a black and tan Border Collie mix. He weighs 40 pounds and likes other dogs. He is also neutered and up-to-date on vaccinations, so his adoption fee is $45.

The Madison-Jefferson County Animal Shelter currently has more than 20 dogs and puppies, and 27 cats and kittens available. Pictures of additional pets waiting for adoption can be viewed at www.sisaveapet.com.

Normal shelter hours are Monday, Thursday and Friday from noon to 5 p.m., Wednesday from 1 to 7 p.m., Saturday from noon to 4 p.m. It is closed Sunday and Tuesday. The shelter number is (812) 273-1788 and the email is jcas39@seidata.com.

Volunteers are always welcome at the shelter to help with walking dogs, playing with puppies and kittens and many other tasks. Volunteers must be 16 years old.

The shelter is in need of dry kitten food and clay cat litter. A list of other requested items can be found on the shelter website. Donations can be mailed to 2727 Hannah Drive, Madison, IN 47250 or dropped off during shelter hours.

Those with missing pets can stop by the shelter, call or email a complete description of the pet, when and where it was last seen, the owner's name and contact information, and a picture of the pet. Pets are held for three days for owners to reclaim them, before they are made available for adoption.

Animals should not be abandoned outside of the shelter or dropped off at the shelter after hours.
