***URGENT*** Calling kitten Fosters: "Kitten Season" is here! We need you NOW! The kittens and the shelter need you. As a foster home, you can choose to foster kittens that need to be bottle fed, a nursing Mom cat and her babies, or a little older weaned kittens that just need to grow up/gain enough weight so they can be spayed/neutered and be adopted or maybe just un-socialized kittens that have not had any or minimal human contact - they just need some TLC so they can be adopted - nothing better than cuddling a kitten. And the best reason for being a cat/kitten foster is that even if it's pouring rain, you don't have to walk them! Please call the shelter for additional information.

The Shelter is currently filled to near maximum capacity, so we are looking for people to help foster some of the animals (esp. now). Many of the animals are housebroken, sweet, and family-friendly. They are often placed in the Shelter because their owners are no longer able to care for them. If you are interested, please email animal.shelter@monroetn.com or call the Shelter, 423-442-1015, and they will put you in touch with Cathy Barrett, Foster Coordinator.

Also, the Monroe County Sherriff's Office has placed the trustees on lockdown; therefore, the Shelter is in desperate need of volunteers to walk the dogs and assist with other Shelter needs. If you are able to help, please call the Shelter.

Since so many of us are either off from work or working from home, this is a great opportunity to spend some time outdoors with your family and pets. East Tennessee has an abundance of hiking trails and outdoor activities to keep everyone happy and busy. Take advantage of this time to get to know them better.

Your pet is probably not used to you being home full time and is loving the extra attention. But pets, like children, become bored with too much free time. Take your dog for extra walks or to a new location with all those new smells. This is also a good time to teach your dog new tricks or new commands. A long stay-down is always a good skill for any dog to have. Or perhaps you want him to bring the ball back to you after you've thrown it. Any new skill or trick keeps your dog's mind and body busy and prevents boredom.
