Trample and Conor

Trample has a fun and quirky personality. He goes from loving to playful in seconds and then wants to cuddle up again just as quick. He also likes to explore. He is a 1 to 3-year-old cat with black and white markings.

Conor is energetic and likes to run and play. He would do well in a home with people who enjoy the outdoors. He will need to be exercised daily and should be introduced to any other dogs in the family before adoption as he is a bit nervous around other dogs. He is a 1 to 2-year-old, tricolor Beagle mix that weighs 37 pounds. He is neutered and his adoption fee is $45, plus the cost of a rabies vaccination.

The Madison-Jefferson County Animal Shelter currently has more than 13 dogs and puppies, and 18 cats and kittens available. Three adult cats have adoption fees of $25. All are spayed and up-to-date on vaccinations. Pictures of additional pets waiting for adoption can be viewed at
