Ben and Gracie looking for loving homes

(Posted June 25, 2020)

The following are among the pets up for adoption at the Humane Society of Madison County.



Ben is a male neuter domestic short hair with an estimated birth date of Sept. 27, 2017. He is a bit shy when he first meets you but warms up quickly and will follow you everywhere. Ben is a very friendly and affectionate kitty who loves to cuddle, play and sleep. He would fit in nicely in a home with other cats and kittens because he loves to play.

The Humane Society’s adoption fee is $60 for kittens and $35 for cats older than 11 months. It includes: a FeLV/FIV test, spay or neuter, set of shots, deworming, and a one-year rabies shot (if old enough). All fees are cash only.



Gracie arrived at the shelter on Jan. 28 after her owner was no longer able to care for her. She has an estimated birth date of Jan. 28, 2016, and weighs about 40 pounds. Gracie is full of energy, always ready to go exploring on walks. She loves to meet new people and usually will greet them with a smile. If her mouth is closed, then you will likely be greeted by her bottom teeth that stick out of her lips. She is very outgoing but listens very well to a stern voice. Gracie has had a bit of training during her time with the Humane Society. She will make a wonderful companion in a loving home.

The Humane Society’s adoption fees vary for dogs: shelter dogs, $150; prison dogs, $200; puppies, $250; and popular pure-breeds, $400. The price includes: a Home Again microchip, set of shots, deworming, heartworm testing (if old enough), spay or neuter, and a one-year rabies shot (if old enough). All dogs adopted must leave with a county license at an additional cost of $17. All fees are cash only.
