TERRA  is a pretty girl with a loving nature and a nice purr. Terra is a Tabico, a Tabby/Calico mix. Terra is not particularly fond of being picked up and carried, so a household without young children would be her preference. If there are dogs in her new household, please be sure Terra has a space of her own to get away from them. Terra is 3- to 4-years-old and will need time to adjust to being around them. Terra is spayed, up-to-date on vaccinations and $45 total to adopt.

ITTY is an attentive, well-behaved boy. It is obvious he once had a home. Itty walks nice on leash and will politely wait to be hooked up. Itty does not like being left outside on his own. He is good at escaping his yard and also will dig. Itty’s prior owner says he is good with kids. He also keeps his shelter kennel very clean! Itty is a 4-year-old, Boxer mix who weighs 57 lbs. Itty is up-to-date on his rabies vaccination. His adoption fee is $30 plus the cost of his neuter.

The Madison-Jefferson County Animal Shelter currently has 10 dogs or puppies, and 13 cats or kittens available. Pictures of additional pets waiting for adoption can be viewed at www.sisaveapet.com.

Support the shelter while walking your dog. Use the “Walk for a Dog” or “WoofTrax” app available through the App Store or Google Play. For each mile walked, a donation is made to the shelter.

A list of needed 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. The shelter also accepts aluminum and steel cans, which are recycled and the proceeds put toward the medical fund. Recent donations have helped get treatment for a beagle with a skin infection and a cat with wounds. The shelter asks that aluminum and steel donations be separated. Steel cans should also be rinsed before they are dropped off. Cans can be dropped off at anytime in a bin located on the east side of the shelter.

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 before they are made available for adoption.

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