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.
On March 16, the shelter received three senior kitties in need of new homes. Mixie is the 12-year-old calico girl with an estimated birthdate of March 2009.
Mixie may be older, but don’t let that number fool you. She still has lots of spunk left in her. She is a very sweet and loving girl that believes everyone is her best friend, and she loves to be the center of attention.
Mixie gets along well with other kitties and probably wouldn’t mind living with a calm dog. This girl is full of personality and loves to make the shelter staff and volunteers smile.
Adoption fees are $80 for kittens up to 6 months old and $60 for cats 7 months and older. The fee includes a FeLV/FIV test, spay or neuter, shots, deworming, and a one-year rabies shot (if old enough). Fees can be paid by cash or credit card.
Dorito arrived at the shelter on March 21 after a citizen found him out and about. He is big guy, a pitty mix weighing in at a whopping 70 pounds. Dorito is deaf, but that doesn’t stop him at all. He is always happy and ready to be out and about with people.
Dorito is getting better at learning his hand signals. When he met some other dogs, he did really well and was very interested in playing, but he is a big strong boy which can put off some dogs. When Dorito visited the kitty room, he was more afraid of the cats than anything, so the shelter would like to see him go to a home without kitties.
Dorito is also all about love. He will gladly plop himself on your lap and give you lots of wet, sloppy kisses. He is a very clean and tidy guy in his kennel. Dorito’s estimated birthday is March 21, 2019.
Adoption fees for dogs are as follows: shelter dogs, $150; prison dogs, $200; puppies, $250; popular pure-breeds, $400. Fees 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. The license fee is cash only. Adoption fees can be paid by credit card or cash.
