Violet and Sparky are looking for forever homes

(Posted Oct. 26, 2020)

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 or call the shelter at (614) 879-8368.


Violet came to the shelter on June 14, 2020, along with her five babies and went directly into foster care. Violet was a fantastic mamma kitty to her babies, which are now grown and have been adopted into forever homes. Now, it is Violet’s turn to find a home.

Shelter staff believe Violet is around 2 years old. She is not a fan of dogs or other cats and is very shy, so she would do better in a quiet home by herself. She is a toy horse, so you may want to stock up on those, and she loves to hang out on the cat tree by the window.
The staff hopes that someone with a lot of patience will adopt Violet and provide her with her forever home.

Adoption fees for cats are $60 for kittens and $35 for cats older than 11 months. The fee includes:a FeLV/FIV test, spay or neuter, set of shots, de-worming, and a one-year rabies shot (if old enough). All fees are cash only.


Sparky was brought to the shelter by a citizen on Aug. 16, 2020, because he was running loose in their neighborhood. The staff believes he is a terrier mix with an estimated birthdate of Aug. 16, 2018.

This ham is full of personality and loves to talk to you through barking, but he will stop once you give him love. He always makes the staff and volunteers giggle with the crazy things he does ,and that piggy sound he makes is hysterical.

Sparky loves to go on walks and hang out with people. He is not a fan of high energy dogs and prefers to mind his own business instead of socializing with them. As far as cats go, he isn’t too sure about them, but the staff suspects he would give chase if they hissed and ran. Sparky is an all-around loving goofball on the hunt for a loving home.

Adoption fees for dogs are as follows: shelter dogs, $150; prison dogs, $200; puppies, $250; popular pure-breeds, $400. The price 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. All fees are cash only.
