The following are among the pets up for adoption at the Humane Society of Madison County.
Sassy arrived at the shelter on May 12 after she was turned in by her owners. She has an estimated birthdate of Dec. 10, 2019, and weighs about 50 pounds. Sassy can be a bit nervous when introduced to strangers, but with your soft voice and a few moments to compose herself, she does well with people. She will give you kisses all over your face and be up in your lap for love if you are her person. Sassy does well with other dogs but would prefer a home with no kitties. She is a young and energetic dog that would do well with a young active family. Sassy will need someone to work with her as she finishes growing up. She needs to learn a little self-control, but other than that, she is a very loving girl that will make a wonderful companion.
Ham and Mister. On March 27, the shelter received two brothers that needed a new home. Mister and Ham are two tabby-and-white boys that are about 2 years old. These handsome fellas can be quite shy at first, but shelter staff have noticed that when they are together, they tend to come out of their shells much easier. When the staff enters the kitty room, Ham and Mister usually chase them around. When they hop up on the cat trees, they rub and push against each other, trying to be the first to get attention. Half the time, one of the brothers will even crawl under the belly of the other to get ahead. These boys do very well with other kitties but seem to not like pooches. They are very silly and loving boys that will make a wonderful duo in a loving family.
