Crackles and Kippa are up for adoption

(Posted April 7, 2024)

The following are among the pets up for adoption at the Humane Society of Madison County. Thanks to a generous donor, all adoption fees are 50 percent off through the end of April.


Hey, everyone! Let me introduce myself. I am Crackles. I know, I know, such a cute name, right!? My previous owner loved me very much but could no longer care for me, so she did the best thing she could and found me this nice place to stay until I find my new furever family. They say I am a wire hair terrier mix, currently weighing a healthy 56 pounds with a birthdate of August 2021.

I have made several new human friends since coming here. The people they call staff are awesome. They feed me every day, and I really love food. Treats are pretty awesome, too. They also have these nice humans they call volunteers who come every single day to take me outside to enjoy the sun and fresh air. I love to go for walks, and I have been told I walk very well on leash. They also take me on field trips to the park, and I really love when that happens. We walk a lot on those days, and I always come back and take a nice long nap. I really like to play with toys, especially anything that has one of those cool squeakers inside of it.

I am told all the time how much of a good boy I am. I always keep my kennel nice and tidy and was house-trained at my previous home. I know I will do great with that in my new home. I did come in with another dog, my brother, so I should do just fine living in a home with another dog friend, as long as our first introduction goes well and we vibe well together. I met some cats and thought they were fantastic toys, so I’m probably best in a home with no cats.

I am a really good boy and such a lovebug, and I can’t wait to meet my new family.

Adoption fees for dogs vary: shelter dogs are $180, prison dogs are $250, puppies are $300, and popular pure-breeds are $400. Customers can take 50 percent off these prices through the end of April. 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; this fee is cash only. Adoption fees can be paid by cash or credit card.

Meet the darling Kippa. This sweet-as-can-be little girl came to the shelter after her owner’s housing arrangement changed. Kippa is about 2.5 years old. She loves to play, explore, and be loved on. She is a bundle of fun and a big fan of feather wand toys and furry mice.

She roams loose in the shelter’s cat room, and she take full advantage of all of the space so that she can explore up a storm. She is usually the first adorable face that greets visitors to the cat room. She can be talkative, too. She gets along great with other kitties, and she loves people.

She has met some dogs since being at the shelter, and she has been a bit fearful of them, but not aggressive. She might be fine in a home with a dog who is respectful and gives her space.

Kippa loves cat trees and bird watching. We think that she would love a nice cat tree in front of a window in her forever home.

Adoption fees for cats are $100 for kittens up to 6 months old and $80 for cats 7 months and older. Customers can take 50 percent off these prices through the end of April. The price includes: a FeLV/FIV test (if old enough), spay or neuter, a Home Again microchip, a set of shots, deworming, and a one-year rabies shot (if old enough). Fees can be paid by cash or credit card.
