The following are among the pets up for adoption at the Humane Society of Madison County.
This sweet, beautiful kitty is around 2 years old with an estimated birthday of June 2019. Bianca was brought into the shelter with her siblings after being taken from a bad living situation. She has done nothing but thrive. She was adopted out once and returned because her owners were moving and couldn’t take her with them. She spent time in a foster home with kids, cats, and a dog, and she loved her canine foster brother so much, she was always hanging out with him.
Bianca loves when the shelter staff and volunteers stop by her kennel to give her love. You’ll most likely find her lounging in a cozy bed when she’s not soaking up love from her humans. In addition to dogs, Bianca loves other kitties and would thrive best in a home with other cats. They can help her adjust and be confident.
Bianca has grown by leaps and bounds since first arriving at the shelter, learning to trust new people. She is friendly and outgoing and would do just fine in a home with children who know to use gentle hands. This sweet baby has already been through so much in her short life. Please consider making her a forever family member.
The adoption fee is $80 for kittens up to 6 months old and $60 for cats 7 months and older. It includes: a FeLV/FIV test, spay or neuter, set of shots, deworming, and a one-year rabies shot (if old enough). Fees can be paid by cash or credit card.
Why, hello there! My name is Goldie. I am a 3.5-year-old lab mix who is as silly as they come. I came to the shelter through no fault of my own; my previous owners could no longer take care of me. I am a big girl at 91 pounds. I love to smile and, when I wag my tail, it moves my entire body and wiggles my butt. I love to go on long walks and sniff everything along the way.
I have been at Madison Correctional Institution’s “prison training program” where I have been getting lessons on tricks, leash walking, and agility course training. The people there said I was the star of doggy classes and was very good at focusing and learning new things. I love getting praise and attention, so I’ll do whatever I can to make you happy.
I have also been told that I really should go to a home with no other doggos. Because I spent my first years alone and without other dogs around, I don’t really know how to react when dogs want to play. I would love to go on walks and hikes with other dogs, though. That way I know what it’s like to be in a real pack.
I need to go to a home with a family who can handle my size. I could easily knock a smaller toddler to the ground by accident. When going to the cat room at the shelter, I did fine. I was just really curious about all of the cats and wiggled right up to them to say “hi.” Since I am so outgoing around kitties, if I go to a home with feline friends, it should probably be with cats who have previous experience with big, goofy, weird goldens. I would really love a big yard with a fence so that I can run around before I go inside and become a couch surfer with you. Come meet me and you’ll see how much of a lovebug I am.
Adoption fees for dogs vary: shelter dogs are $150, prison dogs are $200, puppies are $250, and popular pure-breeds are $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. Fees can be paid by cash or credit card.
