The new executive director of the animal shelter in Muskingum County is already making progress.
Jody Murray said the organization has two fundraisers planned in the upcoming weeks. The Pet Smart in Zanesville is holding a $10 cat adoption drive this Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
"We have lots of cats," said Murray. "This is kind of an unusual time of year for us to have so many cats, so the timing of this is working out well. We’re hoping that we can find a lot of good homes for the cats that we have, because we are basically full with cats right now."
Another event will take place at the Buffalo Wild Wings in Zanesville on September 26th from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
"15% of the proceeds will be donated back to us," said Murray. "Folks do need to have a coupon that they have provided for us. They can get that here at the shelter or go on the website. You just present that when you go in and 15% of the proceeds will come back to us."
Murray said the shelter is also looking for volunteers.
