    Atticus is a big, lovable guy with unique patterns in his fur. He needs to be seen in person for the full effect. He has a unique personality too. He is relaxed and laid-back, though he does want attention. Marie is a friendly girl who first and foremost wants love and attention. She likes to run too, so she is hoping for a large yard. She will need her yard to be fenced to keep her home so she does not become a stray again. The Madison-Jefferson County Animal Shelter currently has 13 dogs or puppies, and five cats or kittens available. Pictures of additional pets waiting for adoption can be viewed at www.sisaveapet.com.
