Animal Shelter Special Events

The Animal Shelter’s calendar is packed in the nearing weeks that will either help the non profit organization raise funds or help our furry friends find homes.

The first is a special dog adoption event on August seventeenth at Tractor Supply from 10 to 3 pm. The shelter hosts several similar events throughout the year in hopes to reach more people by being closer to the hustle and bustle of Maple Avenue.

"Its just a way of letting the community know maybe have not have to make a special trip all the way out the shelter here so eve done events at tractor supply, pets mart, we love pets. Its also places where if they decide to adopt if there are any supplies, they are already at a business that can help them with that. "

Murray also wanted to let the community know that the shelter’s annual auction is still on! The largest fundraiser usually is hosted in August but has been switched to October this year.

"But it was always kind of conflicting with the fair and people getting ready for the fair and school and vacation. So we have moved that to October the twelfth, which is a Saturday and a bye weekend for the buckeyes, so we kind of just wanted people to know that we haven’t discontinued the the auction it will be in the fall of this year."

There are also special adoption prices for beagles at only 50 dollars.
