Our current longest feline shelter resident has a reduced adoption fee, thanks to a sponsor!

More than a year at our shelter – June

We’ve had a donor step up to cover part of our current longest feline resident’s adoption fee! This donation was made in memory of Dave Calhoun.

June, who has been at our shelter since June 2020, is available to the right home at a reduced adoption fee! June is a domestic shorthair that was born around May 2015 and weighs 6 pounds.

She was picked up running around the Monticello Vet Clinic — and her love to explore has stuck with her! She is a curious girl and so much fun to be around.

June’s adoption has been sponsored, and she is available at a reduced adoption fee! Contact the shelter for more information. Normal application & adoption approval process still applies.

June’s adoption includes spay/neuter, vaccinations, treating for earmites, worming, flea treatment, and microchipping. She tested negative for Felv/Fiv on 12/23/20. If you would like to meet June, please come to the shelter at 22407 Bus Hwy 151 in Monticello. Our hours of operation are Tuesday thru Saturday from noon to 6:30pm.


Over 700 days without a forever home ADOPTED!!! – Adrianne


Update: Adrianne was adopted on September 7, 2021!

We’ve had an amazing donor step up to cover part of our current longest feline resident’s adoption fee!

Adrianne, who has been at our shelter for 21 months, is now available to the right home at a reduced fee! Adrianne is a female domestic shorthair who was born around October 2014 and weighs 7 pounds.

She was found in rural Jones County with 5 kittens who weren’t doing very well. She and her kittens were covered in fleas, and Adrianne was not producing enough milk for the kittens because of her poor condition. Two of the kittens didn’t make it, but in the care of a loving foster home, she and her remaining three kittens survived. Now Adrianne is healthy and ready for her forever home!

Adrianne enjoys some alone time, but also enjoys attention — on her own terms. 😉 She has a grumpy face, but is very smart, and will sit like a dog and beg for treats! Come visit our shelter and see if this unique girl is the right fit for your family!

Adrianne’s adoption includes spay/neuter, vaccinations, treating for earmites, worming, flea treatment, and microchipping. She tested negative for Felv/Fiv on 12/23/20. If you would like to meet Adrianne, please visit the shelter at 22407 Bus. Hwy. 151 on the outskirts of Monticello. Normal business hours are Tuesday through Saturday, noon to 6:30pm. If you have any further questions, you can call 319-975-8283.


Over 2 years at our shelter ADOPTED!!! – Dorothy

Update: Dorothy was adopted on July 10, 2021!

A generous sponsor has stepped forward to help Dorothy’s adoption. Dorothy is now available at a reduced adoption fee!! Normal adoption approval process still applies. Let’s get this girl in her forever home!!

Meet our current longest resident, who has been waiting for over TWO YEARS now for her forever family… Dorothy! She was adopted from us in 2018 as a kitten, but unfortunately her owner’s health changed and they were unable to keep her. Now she continues to wait for her forever family to find her.

As a no-kill shelter, she can stay here as long as she needs for that to happen… but no cat should have to spend years in a shelter. Dorothy deserves a loving home and family. Please share so we can find that for her!!

Dorothy is a domestic shorthair that was born around April 14, 2018. She is a beautiful girl – brown tabby with hint of orange, and bright yellow eyes. Dorothy is a real sweetheart, though a bit timid. She has begun coming out more and more to meet people when they enter the room she’s in. She will not jump in your lap, but she does like to be picked up and get pet!

When Dorothy first came to us, she was very shy and scared around people. She’s continually getting more comfortable around people, and we believe she will attach more closely to those people she learns to trust. Dorothy needs a quiet home and a patient family to help her to continue to gain confidence. She would do best without small children or kittens, but she would most likely be fine around other adult cats.

Dorothy tested negative for Felv/Fiv on 02/10/21. If you would like to meet Dorothy, please come to the shelter at 22407 Bus Hwy 151 in Monticello. Our hours of operation are Tuesday thru Saturday from noon to 6:30pm.


500+ days at our shelter ADOPTED!!! – Cat

Update: Cat was adopted on July 13, 2021!

The generosity continues… We’ve had another wonderful donor step up on behalf of a long term resident — Cat! Cat is now available for a reduced adoption fee!

Cat has been at our shelter since being surrendered for their owner moving… Twice. 😢 July 10th is the 500th day that he’s been looking for a forever home.

Cat is a male domestic shorthair who was born around September, 2016 weighs 16 pounds. Cat loooves being petted! He also prefers to be the only cat — probably because he prefers all of the attention for himself! 🙂

Cat’s tested negative for Felv/Fiv on 02/10/21. If you would like to meet Cat, please come to the shelter at 22407 Bus Hwy 151 in Monticello. Our hours of operation are Tuesday thru Saturday from noon to 6:30pm.


Over one year at our shelter ADOPTED!!! – Lila

Update: Lila was adopted on July 7, 2021!

We’ve had another amazing sponsor step up to help get one of our long term care residents adopted — Lila is now available at a reduced adoption fee! She’s been at our shelter for over a year now, and is still searching for her forever family.

Lila is a domestic medium hair that was born around July 2013 and weighs 7 pounds. She was relinquished due to family members developing allergies. Lila is a sweetheart who loves being brushed and pet (and maybe pet some more 😉  ). She’s also a big talker! She previously lived with a medium-sized dog.

Lila tested negative for Felv/Fiv on 02/10/21. If you would like to meet Lila, please come to the shelter at 22407 Bus Hwy 151 in Monticello. Our hours of operation are Tuesday thru Saturday from noon to 6:30pm.
