The Adoptables

Rosebud is more fun than a sled, but will leave just as lasting of an impression. 

The Boxer mix is about a year old. She is spayed and up-to-date on her toys. She was surrendered by her original owners and has been available for about a week. 

Rosebud is very affectionate and playful. She enjoys a good romp and likes to play with toys. Her little, bobbed tail moves at about a million miles an hour in excitement.

Woody, a happy-go-lucky shepherd mix is still waiting for a new family to play with. He is about a year old and likes to play fetch. He knows some basic commands, including “sit” and will do best with a backyard. 

Panther is much sweeter than his jungle cat namesake. 

He is very affectionate, likes to cuddle, craves attention and likes to be held. His purr fills the room. 

He was found as a stray and has been at the shelter for about a week. He is about a year old and is up-to-date on his shots. He is currently not neutered, but that is included in the adoption fee. 

On Saturday, Feb. 9 there will be a rabies clinic from 9:30 a.m. until 10:30 a.m. at Monroe Tractor Supply, 1010 West Roosevelt Boulevard in Monroe. Shots are $10 and only cash is accepted. Microchips are also available at the event.

The fee for adopting a dog or a cat is $85. The fee includes first shots, deworming, a heartworm check, rabies shots, spaying or neutering and a one time “well check” vet visit.

The shelter is on 3340 Presson Road in Monroe. The phone number is 704-283-8303. Adoption hours are Monday through Friday from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m.
