    Bootsie is a sweet girl that enjoys being pampered. She especially enjoys having her long, gray fur brushed. She is a declawed, social 5-year-old. Her original owner cannot take care of her anymore, so she is looking forward to a new beginning. Velvet is a loving and sweet girl. She likes to go for walks and would appreciate an owner who goes with her. She has been at the shelter for awhile. She is 3- to 5-years-old, weighs 42 pounds and still needs to learn basic obedience training. The Madison-Jefferson County Animal Shelter currently has more than 10 dogs or puppies, and 41 cats or kittens available. Pictures of additional pets waiting for adoption can be viewed at www.sisaveapet.com.
