Ribbon Cutting for Shelter

I want to take a moment to invite everyone out to the official ribbon cutting and open house for the new Johnson County Animal Shelter this Sunday at 2 p.m. We are located on Route 460 on Shelter Way road on the left. Just look for the signs and balloons. This is your animal shelter Johnson County! 

It has been a labor of love for those who have stuck with this project for the last four years. And always worth every minute spent to provide the very best place for all of Johnson County's stray, abandoned and abused animals. Thanks to our entire community and beyond who have supported our efforts.

Know that every animal that comes through our doors will be treated with the utmost care and respect and most of all with the abundance of LOVE that these animals have always deserved. 

Bless each and every one and all of those precious animals who need us.

COME ADOPT A NEW FELINE FRIEND

This week we are featuring a litter of three siblings (CHANCE, CELSIUS, CYCLONE) and their mommy named STORMY. Just like their mommy, these babies are super sweet and very friendly. Another sweet little darling named SKYLAR was presented to Stormy because he came to the Shelter very young and needed a mother for a while longer, so she took him in and nursed him and raised him with her own babies. All the babies are very playful and love attention. They are litter box trained, vaccinated, dewormed, and will be fixed before going to a new forever home!!

Stormy has already been fixed so she is ready for a new home right away!!

Come to the Shelter and see STORMY, CHANCE, CELSIUS, CYCLONE, and SKYLAR right away!! These kittiesi are just adorable.

This week we are featuring some great kitties who have been at the Shelter much too long.  Each feline has a very sweet disposition and gets along well with the other kitties at the Shelter. They are litter box trained, vaccinated, dewormed, and fixed so they can be adopted and go to a new forever home right away!!

Missy Missy MISSY is a beautiful orange Tiger Stripe Tabby who has plenty of spunk!! She is very playful…and perhaps better in a home that does not have small children as she can play a little too vigorously at times.  But if you like a feisty and one that loves attention (most of the time), then MISSY is the girl for you. Won't YOU give MISSY a loving forever home today?

 

 

 

 

 

Diane Diane DIANE is an adorable brown & black Tiger Stripe Tabby with spots of orange here-n-there over her body which makes her a Tabico (mix of a Tabby and Calico)!! She is a very sweet girl and would make a great companion in any home. She gets along well with her playmates at the Shelter. Are YOU the special human DIANE is waiting for to take her home?

 

 

 

 

Gemma Gemma This is GEMMA and she is just a big "Sweetheart" of a kitty. She loves attention and loves to be petted!!!! She just can't get enough human interaction. GEMMA gets along very well with the other kitties who share her room. GEMMA would make a great addition to any family!!

JUNE 15, 2015

This week we are featuring a litter of four siblings who were born March 3rd to a super sweet mommy named Gemma. Just like their mommy, these babies are super sweet and were raised in a foster home until they were old enough to be brought to the shelter and readied for adoption. Initially a litter of five (one has already been adopted as well as Gemma), these remaining kittens are as sweet and personable as they come.  They are very playful, love attention, and are litter box trained, vaccinated, dewormed, and fixed so they are ready to go to a new forever home right away!!

Find the perfect cat for you

Whether you’re looking for a fun, frisky kitten or a mellow, mature cat, you’ll find the perfect feline at our Shelter. We have cats of all breeds, ages and personalities, and they’re all looking for loving, permanent homes.

The Lawrence County Humane Society encourages people to enrich their lives by adopting a cat.

 

 

These tips should be considered when adopting

• Age: While kittens are hard to resist, adult cats are often better suited to families with young children. Mature cats respond better to being handled by inquisitive toddlers. 

• Number: It can be beneficial to adopt more than one cat or kitten, especially if the pets will be left alone for long periods while you are gone. Not all cats enjoy companionship, but many are very social with members of their own species. 

• Personality: Many cats are under a great deal of stress in a shelter environment. A cat’s true personality may not emerge until he has been in his new home for several weeks. The Lawrence County Humane Society encourages you to visit the cat you’re interested in several times and to read any information from a previous owner. 

• Coat: The longer the cat’s fur, the more brushing will be needed to prevent painful matting. 

• Nutrition and health: Good nutrition and twice-a-year vet visits will help your cat stay healthy and happy. Keep your cat indoors to prevent her from contracting diseases, being hit by a car or getting hurt by other animals. 

• Tags and microchips: Millions of cats are taken to animal shelters as strays each year -- but only about 2 percent of cats without an ID tag or microchip are reunited with their owners. Make sure your cat wears a collar and tag with the cat’s name and your name, address and phone number. Microchips provide permanent identification that can never come off or get lost. 

• Prepare your home: Adult cats and kittens love to climb and explore, so beware of possible hazards. Don’t let cords or wires dangle, and cover any floor heating and air vents. Some houseplants may be toxic; check with your vet for details. 

Kids and cats: Children should be taught that a kitten or cat is a companion, not a toy. Rough handling can lead to injuries to both the cat and the child. 

Dogs and cats: Cats and dogs often enjoy each other’s company, but great care must be taken when introducing these two species. Some dogs may be aggressive toward small animals and may not be suited to sharing their homes with cats. If you have a dog, ask the adoption staff if you can bring him to the shelter to meet the cat in a controlled environment before you adopt. Most cats will be frightened the first time they see a dog and will need time to accept a canine companion.
