Pets of the Week
Every week Have a Heart pet Shelter features a couple of their adoptable fur-kids. Our featured kitty gets top spot this week. Meet Snoopy. Handsome little Snoopy was born to Ninja Momma (a feral kitty) and lovingly brought up at the shelter for the past few months. Born mid May, Snoopy is currently 5 months old, healthy, playful, curious, outgoing and very loving – a perfect companion for anyone or any family. Snoopy is up to date on his shots, neutered and ready to go to his fur-ever home.
Bella is our featured dog for this week. Bella seems to be a purebred Yellow Labrador Retriever of 1 1/2 – 2 yrs of age. She’s a very happy and outgoing sweetheart of a dog. She came to us as an unclaimed stray from Yellville Animal Control. She walks well on leash, seems to be tolerant of other dogs and just enjoys being with people. She also appears to be housebroken already and is a healthy, well muscled girl of over 60 lbs. Bella would make a great addition to your family. Our dog adoptions are a bargain at only $100 and include: Spaying/Neutering Surgery, Rabies vaccination, 5 in 1 basic canine vaccination, de-worming, heartworm testing and Flea & Tick Preventative applied.
Don’t forget to mark your calendars for our Soup and Chili Dinner fundraiser on Saturday November 17th from 5-8pm. It will be held at Madden Auction House located on 14th Street in Summit. Your $7.00 donation will get you a great meal, live entertainment and we will have a pie auction. Tickets are available at the Shelter or at the door. All proceeds go towards care of our Shelter animals. To all the good cooks out there; we need baked goods for the dessert table, cornbread and desserts for the pie action. C’mon out and help make our fundraiser a success.
In past articles I’ve written about not being in a rush when you decide to adopt a pet. We have had several of our dogs adopted, only to have them brought back to us several days later with the adopters saying the dog “just didn’t work out”. Adopting a dog is a big commitment. You will be responsible for that pets well being for 8-12 years or maybe even longer. We will always take our dogs back if things don’t work out, but this is confusing for the dog. If you are thinking of adopting, you can come to the shelter as many times as you wish to walk and hang out with the dog of your choice, get to know him or her better, and hopefully your dog will be a good fit for your family and lifestyle when you do decide on the right pooch. Have a Heart Pet shelter is located at 657 Highway 202 in Yellville, open Tuesday through Saturday 9am-3pm. Phone 870-449-7387.
