The following are among the pets up for adoption at the Humane Society of Madison County. If you are interested in adopting a pet, fill out an application online at www.hsmcohio.org or call the shelter at (614) 879-8368.
Cinnamon arrived at the shelter on July 28. She is estimated to be around a year old and was born with a birth defect–her front paw is curved. This doesn’t affect her day-to-day life as she isn’t in pain and is still as active as can be. She loves to do normal cat things like playing and hanging out with the other kitties. Cinnamon’s favorite thing to do is to cozy up in someone’s lap and soak up some love. This sweet girl has endless amounts of love to give and will make a wonderful companion and friend to a loving forever home.
Adoption fees for cats are $60 for kittens and $35 for cats older than 11 months. The fee includes: a FeLV/FIV test, spay or neuter, set of shots, de-worming, and a one-year rabies shot (if old enough). All fees are cash only.
Buddy arrived at the shelter on July 23 after he was picked up by an officer. He is a shepherd mix, 3 to 4 years old, and 54 pounds. Buddy is a friend to everyone he meets, and he usually greets them with his paws on their chest and licks on their face.
This happy pooch is full of energy and definitely needs a home that is going to get him the exercise he needs. When he is waiting on a treat, he gets so excited that he practically jumps as high as our waists, straight up in the air in anticipation. He is a big fan of squeaky toys and is probably one of the most outgoing pooches at the shelter. Buddy is a wonderful pooch that will make a great addition to a new home.
There will be a bit of a wait for Buddy to become official in his new home because he is heartworm positive. The shelter will provide treatment for the heartworm. Any potential adopter cannot finalize the adoption until he has been treated, but it is possible for a potential adopter to take him home and care for him until he is finished with his treatment.
Adoption fees for dogs are as follows: shelter dogs, $150; prison dogs, $200; puppies, $250; popular pure-breeds, $400. The price includes: a Home Again microchip, shots, deworming, heartworm testing (if old enough), spay or neuter, and a one-year rabies shot (if old enough). All dogs that are adopted must leave with a county license at an additional cost of $17. All fees are cash only.
