The Animal Shelter wants everyone to be able to shout out "Bingo."

The MASS Bingo Hall on West Main Street reopened to the public in March. Since that time the Animal Shelter Society’s been working to reinvent the facility connecting it more to the shelter.

One hundred percent of the proceeds stay in the county to help the shelter keep the costs of adoption and wellness clinics low and allow the shelter to continue to provide other services to the community.

"We honestly hadn’t done a good job with that in the past," said Executive Director Jody Murray. "We’ve tried to put up more signs and banners, we keep an adoption book here of available animals. When people come down we want them to have a good time, we hope they win some money, but we also want them to know the money that they’re spending does really support the shelter."

BINGO takes place on Wednesdays with doors opening at 3:30p.m., instant game preceed the BINGO which starts at 6 p.m.

The shelter also wants the public to mark June 7th on their calendar. That’s the day of the shelter’s annual family fun day. This year there’s a special military focus.

"Anyone that’s in the military that’s looking for a forever pet we want them to come out that day because we’re going to have some really special pricing for them," explained Murray. "It’s just our way of giving back and honoring these folks."

If anyone is interested in volunteering at the MASS BINGO hall or learning more about the shelter you can contact them at (740) 452-1077.
