Jazz and Caramel looking for forever homes

(Posted April 30, 2020)

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


Jazz is a very loveable guy and a total ham when he is around people. Jazz will lie half in your lap and lean into you as you pet him. Shelter staff believe he is a pit bull terrier mix, about 2 to 3 years old, and 61 pounds. Jazz tends to keep to himself around other dogs. He absolutely loves toys and loves to show them off. He does not mind when people take his toys, but he would rather just hang onto it than play fetch. He has been working with a dog trainer and has done very well with leash walks and commands. He spent some time in a foster home as a trial and did a fantastic job. He is housebroken and all about getting love from everyone he meets. He does not do well around children, but any adult is his best friend after he knows they are a friend of his people. Jazz is a great pooch that will make a wonderful companion to a new loving home.


Caramel arrived at the shelter on Jan. 26, 2020, along with her siblings. She is estimated to be born around Aug. 26, 2019, so she is still a young and sweet little girl. Caramel loves to play with other kitties and she is so full of curiosity. If you are trying to do office work, you can bet she will be lying right in the middle of your desk full of papers and will be batting at your pen if you’re trying to write. (The shelter staff know from experience). Caramel is an all-around love bug that is going to make her forever home so much fun.

The Humane Society of Madison County is closed to the public.

The staff is being proactive with cleaning and disinfecting all areas of the building.

The Humane Society is continuing to accept applications for adoptions, adopting out cats and dogs, and scheduling meet-and-greets for potential adopters. The staff is answering telephone calls, emails and any messages that come their way. They ask that the public call to set an appointment time before coming out to the shelter.
