Up for adoption: Riley and Madison

(Posted Sept. 26, 2019)

The following pets are up for adoption at the Humane Society of Madison County, 2020 Plain City Georgesville Rd., West Jefferson. Call (614) 879-8368 for details.



Riley is 3 years old and weighs about 45 pounds. She is neither too big nor too small, but just right. She is easygoing, somewhat independent and occasionally enjoys a game of fetch. She never messes in her kennel and, when people walk past, she greets them calmly like a nice young lady. Riley would do best as an only furbaby in the home. She is a favorite of volunteers at the shelter because she walks so nicely on a leash.



Madison is about 9 months old. She has been at the shelter since May 26 after being fostered for some time in a nice family’s home. She is a petite kitty that is an absolute sweetheart. When you walk into the room, she is all meows and comes trotting over to you looking for love. She follows you wherever you go until she finally decides to find a roost and hang out where she can look out the window.

Fun News

The Humane Society of Madison County is now the proud owner of a custom piece of art. This summer, children who participated in the Plain City Elementary Art Camp painted portraits of cats and dogs up for adoption at the Humane Society. They recently presented a two-foot by three-foot collage of those portraits to the Humane Society: (from left) Janel Luker, Plain City Elementary art teacher; Ella Luker, 9, and Maya Luker, 11, who painted two of the portraits; and Hilary Frambes, a Plain City artist who helped to lead the art camp. “We were so surprised and pleased to have received such a wonderful gift,” said Cathy Leistikow, Humane Society operations manager.
