Facts about Navel

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Orange Or Red Tabby
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Eight adorable ORANGE tabby kittens were born inside of a shed in someone's backyard where mama cat found refuge in mid April of 2016. The Jackson Madison County Humane Society was contacted for help, but with it being kitten season due to so many irresponsible pet owners in the area, the shelter was full at the time. It wasn't too long before foster mom Laura had an opening though and she agreed to foster the kittens after they were tested for kitty diseases. The kittens had a severe case of ear mites and some pretty nasty conjunctivitis to the point that some had eyes literally glued shut. The kittens are tons better at this time due to bi-daily medications and care, but you can see in some of the pictures that they even lost some of the hair around their little eyes. No worries, it will grow back.
If you are interested in meeting one or two of these orange beauties, feel free to contact Laura at or text her at 731-431-5710 to meet and reserve your kitten. They will be fully vetted via JMCHS and can be adopted for $80 or two for $140.

Our Adoption Process...

We take in and adopt out dogs, puppies, cats and kittens only. The potential adopter needs to visit our shelter and pick out an animal they are interested in. Once they have found an animal they like, they will need to fill out an adoption application and get approved by one of the shelter staff. Once approved they will need to read and sign our adoption contract and pay the fee.

Our Adoption Fees are:

* As of January 1, 2014 all canine adoption fees are $125 and feline adoption fees are $80, which includes: fee pays for heartworm testing for dogs, feline Leukemia/AIDS testing for cats, vaccinations & deworming for both, plus any additional veterinary care the animal may need.

The Tennessee Spay/Neuter Law says that any animal that comes from a humane society, shelter or rescue must be spayed or neutered.
This is very important in the fight against animal overpopulation.

We also have animals available at various adoption events. We take dogs to either Petsmart or Petco on Saturdays. Check our Upcoming Events link often for dates when we will be at these places.
