Monroe County Animal Shelter is looking to place dogs in homes
Who wants a new dog? The Monroe County Animal Shelter has reached canine capacity and is waiving its adoption fee on Saturday for anyone who wants a new four-legged friend.
“Come down and meet the dogs. We try to put the dogs in a suitable home. We want you to come meet them and have your lifestyle match the dog’s lifestyle. If you have kids or other dogs, we meet and greet both,” said volunteer Tawnia Arnold.
The 30 dogs available at 911 South Rainsville Road range in age from a few months to seven years old. After completing the necessary paperwork, potential pet owners can bring home a new best friend that day.
A home inspection and initial meet-and-greet period is mandatory if those interested already have another pet. The Murder Free Shelter’s Adoption Fair will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, July 16.
The family event will also feature a number of sponsored vendors. Suppliers include STB Creations, Luna Paws and Oh My Goodness Gemz. Gift baskets will also be available via a public raffle. Kids can also choose whether they want to be a dog or a cat at the face-up station.
“We desperately need volunteer walkers for the opening of the shelter,” added volunteer Karen Drzewiecki.
We need volunteers to walk the dogs awaiting fostering. Visit [email protected] or call (734) 240-3125.
