Featuring pets available at the Medfield Animal Shelter.
Missy and Phelps are ready for adoption. Kim Agricola of the Medfield Animal Shelter said these adorable kittens entered into the Medfield Animal Shelter's care during the Olympics, hence their names. The orangemale kitten is Phelps, named after Michael Phelps. The black kitten is Missy named after Missy Franklin. "They needed a bit of socialization before they were placed in homes, so they are in a great foster home, but are now ready for a home of their own," Agricola said, adding they have already been spayed/neutered and are eager to go to their forever home. The shelter is accepting applications for these kittens and would like to place Phelps and Missy in a home together, if possible. To apply for a cat or kitten, call the …

There are several dogs and cats available for adoption through the Medfield Animal Shelter.
Leroy came to the Medfield Animal Shelter as a result of a police investigation. "His owner who had loved him and taken good care of him was sent to jail and left Leroy with a friend who had him living in a tent, but that didn't work out and now he is waiting patiently to be adopted," said Kim Agricola of the shelter. "He's been with us for over a month hoping against hope there might be one more chance to share his big love again with an appreciative owner." Agricola said that, "Leroy likes to kiss as many faces as he can and to leave his drool on car windows as he cruises down Rt 109, ears flapping and tail thumping while the Beach boys belt out 'Help me Rhonda'." His nine-year-old body has its share of arthritis that requires …

Jeter is a silly, young and playful dog who came to the Medfield Animal Shelter from the Worcester Animal Rescue League. He is named after Olympic gold medalist Carmelita Jeter. "We aren't sure what kind of mix he is, but it is something that is very cute," said Kim Agricola from the shelter." She said, "We are just getting to know him, but so far we know he is very nice and was great with one of our volunteer's kids. He also loves toys." Agricola said a veterinarian estimates his age at approximately 2-years-old. He is neutered and up-to-date on his vet care and eager to meet his new family.

Jazz, a 9 year old Border Collie/Lab mix, is available for adoption from the Medfield Animal Shelter.
Jazz is also affectionately known as "Spazz" by his owner because he was so wild and silly when she adopted him from the Medfield Animal Shelter seven years ago. Jazz is a Border Collie/Lab mix and all he wanted to do when he was younger was run and play and jump and herd. Now at nine years young he still does all of this but in a more dignified manner due to all the love he has been showered with by his owner, Pam. "Sadly, they must now part ways and it is breaking two hearts," explained Kim Agricola of the Medfield Animal Shelter. "Pam must move to senior housing that does not allow pets and her only wish is that Jazz have a chance at love one more time." In the seven years they have been together, their bond is strong but Jazz also has …

Carly is available for adoption at the Medfield Animal Shelter.
Carly originally arrived at the Medfield Animal Shelter from a large, very crowded shelter where she spent eight months in a cage patiently waiting for a family to come along and adopt her. “This sweet, gorgeous and friendly cat was overlooked simply because there were so many other cats also available,” said Kim Agricola with the Medfield Animal Shelter. “She was adopted from us two years ago, but was recently returned because she was no longer getting along with the other cat in her home.” Agricola said this “tiger and white beauty” is looking for a home where she can be the boss. She said the 17 lb. diva does not lack confidence but does lack willpower when it comes to cat cookies. She has tried the "see food" diet, has flunked out …
