The Animal Shelter Society in Muskingum County is seeking your help.

In efforts to raise money to help keep the non profit organization up and running , Executive Director, Jody Murray is encouraging animal lovers to participate in the Kennel Sponsorship Program.

"It’s a program where either businesses, individuals for $100 donation will put a sign up on the kennel for them, it could be to advertise their business, it could be in memory of someone, it could just be a family that wants to sponsor a kennel, " said Murray.

Along with the Kennel Sponsorship Program, the Animal Shelter Society is also looking to connect with their friends through Facebook. They say they recently reached a milestone and to celebrate they are asking for donations.

"Over the last year and a half, we’ve grown to over 1,300 friends which is just great so what we are doing on our Facebook page is we are asking all of our Facebook friends to make a one time donation of $10, " said Murray.

Murray say if people are not interested in these upcoming projects they can also volunteer their time. He says the shelter is always in need of dog walkers, kennel cleaners and caring individuals to play with the cats. For more information about upcoming programs or events feel free to call the animal shelter by phone.
